server storage I/O data infrastructure trends

 

Microsoft has created an Azure and Amazon Web Service (AWS) Service Map  (corresponding services from both providers).

Note that this is an evolving work in progress from  Microsoft and use it as a tool to help position the different services from  Azure and AWS.

 

Also note that not all features or services may not be available in different regions, visit Azure and AWS sites to see current availability.

 

As with any comparison they are often dated the day they are  posted hence this is a work in progress. If you are looking for another Microsoft  created why Azure vs. AWS then check out this here. If you  are looking for an AWS vs. Azure, do a simple Google (or Bing) search and watch  all the various items appear, some sponsored, some not so sponsored among  others.

Whats In the Service Map

The following AWS and Azure services are mapped:

  • Marketplace (e.g. where you select service offerings)
  • Compute (Virtual Machines instances, Containers, Virtual Private Servers, Serverless Microservices and Management)
  • Storage (Primary, Secondary, Archive, Premium SSD and HDD, Block, File, Object/Blobs, Tables, Queues,  Import/Export, Bulk transfer, Backup, Data Protection, Disaster Recovery, Gateways)
  • Network & Content Delivery (Virtual networking, virtual private networks and virtual private cloud, domain name services (DNS), content delivery network (CDN), load balancing, direct connect, edge, alerts)
  • Database (Relational, SQL and NoSQL document and key value, caching, database migration)
  • Analytics and Big Data (data warehouse, data lake, data processing, real-time and batch, data orchestration, data platforms, analytics)
  • Intelligence and IoT (IoT hub and gateways, speech recognition, visualization, search, machine learning, AI)
  • Management and Monitoring (management, monitoring, advisor, DevOps)
  • Mobile Services (management, monitoring, administration)
  • Security, Identity and Access (Security, directory services, compliance, authorization, authentication, encryption, firewall
  • Developer Tools (workflow, messaging, email, API management, media trans coding, development tools, testing, DevOps)

What this means

On one hand this can and will likely be used as a comparison however use caution as both Azure and AWS services are rapidly evolving, adding new features, extending others. Likewise the service regions and site of data centers also continue to evolve thus use the above as a general guide or tool to help map what service offerings are similar between AWS and Azure.
