- Azure is a service that allows you to upload an application and run it.
- Amazon Elastic Computing Cloud (EC2) is a service that allows you to rent one or more virtual machines running Linux/Windows or some other operating system .
- Both services charge based on usage parameters like CPU usage, number of requests, data transferred, and other variables. (consider and understand these carefully)
- Both services provide “behind the scene” reliability, scalability and capacity, so you do not have to worry about it
In doing some of the research, I came across a nice presentation made by Steve Marx, which I had to share with all.
I went to Steve’s blog: http://blog.smarx.com and found it to be a wealth of very relevant information on the Azure topic. Thanks Steve! – We have earmarked your blog as one to follow.
