Between AWS and Azure, what is your platform of choice? What makes it your preferred platform?

Manjunath SubbaraoAzure if you are/want to continue to be a tight-knit microsoft shop (.net/outlook/forms/mssql) AWS if you are/want to be the next-gen open-source distributed shop with pre-tested reliable components
Francis IkemenanwaFrom my understanding both platforms provide reliable storage  services. AWS has services like  EBS, Glacier and AWS S3 while Azure storage services blob storage, disk storage and archives. AWS S3 provides high availability and automatic replication across regions. Azure uses temporary storage and page blobs for VM volume.
Dmytro KutetskyiThere are a set of open questions and decisions to prefer one or another cloud, just a few of that: 1. Region availability (to store sensitive data like payments or PHI data locally) - both providers have a set of not overlapping regions. 2. Specific services - both providers propose some unique services for test/voice recognition, IoT, machine learning, integration with different CDNs, etc. 3. Price - providers or resellers could propose various discounts based on your needs, grants, and other cost-reducing offers. 4. Technology stack and current infrastructure: AWS is more-less platform-agnostic and has a richer set of available services. Azure has more integration with Microsofts stack (Azure Active Directory, .NET support, and others).

What are the differences between IaaS, PaaS and SaaS? What are some considerations to take into account when choosing between PaaS, SaaS and IaaS?

Arpit DumkaIAAS - Infrastructure As A Service A blank server , nothing is installed . Eg- VmWare which can be used for below service:- 1. Ready to rent 2. Compute 3. Storage 4. Network PAAS - Platform As A Service 1. For developers - they deploy the code which requires some frameworf i.e apache. 2. We get - ready to use environment 3. Tools to create and deploy applications SAAS - Sofware As A Service 1. These are ready to use . 2. Gmail , google-drive etc . which are using by end user - The final product.
Muljo WitonoIaaS, provides you infrastructure services. If you want to buy a home, they provide you good location, good and secure land to build a house. To buy IaaS you need make sure it's a secure, stable and reliable service to run an application inside. PaaS, provides you platforms. If you want to buy a home, they provide you good house, good building, functional and healthy rooms. To buy Paas you need to consider it's a safe, functional and supporting operating system for your applications. SaaS, provides you application or software services. If you want to buy a home, they provide you rental house complete with its furniture and appliances. You just enter the house and live inside. SaaS must be built on top of good platform and infrastructure. Also, you need to make sure that applications work as you need
