At first glance each platform appears to offer a near identical set of services. One provider’s EC2 is another’s Virtual Machine. You have S3 vs Blob Storage, Lambda vs Functions. You’d be fooled into thinking they all do exactly the same thing.
Without spending hours trawling the web for differences, it is often just easier to assume that Windows workloads work best on Azure and that Linux are better suited to AWS or GCP. However, in reality, it isn’t that clear cut.
As with most things, the devil is in the detail. But with a myriad of platforms, each with an ever increasing number of services, how do you pick which cloud platform to use to achieve your business goals most optimally?
Cloud isn’t a case of one-size-fits-all.
Certain businesses have different requirements that will work better on specific platforms, depending on the tech. Regardless of what attracted you to the cloud, be sure to choose a platform that accurately provides the required functionality.
Both platforms we work with, AWS and Azure, are hugely different in terms of interface and available resources. The environments you hope to create and deploy should be designed in the early stages to ensure your chosen platform can support them.
Unsure about which provider is for you? Not a problem. Our team can get to grips with your processes from the moment you pick up the phone. We’ll map out what you hope to achieve with the tools available and provide an overview of the work needed for a smooth transition.
In addition, we’ll suggest ways to evolve your processes through your chosen provider and teach your employees best practice according to the platform. Not only will you save costs by doing this, but also get more out of the software you’re using.
