While some cloud users are evaluating AWS vs. Azure, many enterprises are planning to use both cloud providers to avoid vendor lock-in and latency while creating redundancy. While Azure is now the clear #2 in public cloud behind AWS there are some notable differences between how the two hyper-clouds operate and the best practices for deploying workloads in each to create a multi-cloud solution that can optimize for cost and performance. The session covered:
1) AWS vs. Azure differences for compute, networking, storage and pricing.
2) Recent and coming enhancements for AWS Lambda and Azure Functions.
3) Multi-cloud environments can be complex so let’s discuss the best practices for cloud deployments when using both AWS and Azure.
