Microsoft Azure versus Amazon Web Services

Microsoft Azure versus Amazon Web Services

It can be helpful when considering what cloud service your company might choose to understand their differences.

In these first two parts of a five video series on Channel 9 Keith Mayer and Gerald Tiu from Microsoft provide information for AWS Pros to understand Microsoft Azure in Part 1.

Then, in Part 2, they also compare the networking components on each service and then do a walk-through tutorial on how to build various networking services in Azure.

(Part 1) Microsoft Azure for Amazon AWS Cloud Professionals: Getting Started

As the leading public cloud platforms, Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS) each offer businesses a broad and deep set of capabilities with global coverage. Yet many organizations choose to use both platforms together for greater choice and flexibility, as well as to spread their risk and dependencies with a multi-cloud approach. Consulting companies and software vendors may also want to build on and use both Azure and AWS as this combination represents the majority of the cloud market demand.

To help decide which platform is right for your needs, we’re kicking off a new 5 part mini-series today showcasing and demoing Microsoft Azure features as well as comparing them to Amazon Web Services to see how they match up. 

(Part 2) Microsoft Azure for Amazon AWS Cloud Professionals: Networking

In Part 2 of our Microsoft Azure for Amazon AWS Cloud Professionals series, Keith Mayer and Gerald Tiu take us through an in-depth comparison of the networking components between Azure and AWS as well as a comprehensive step-by step walkthrough of how to build VNets and Subnets, Hybrid Connectivity, Network Security groups and much, much more!  

We will be sure to highlight as the other videos become available.

Enjoy the learning.
