Key Differences Between AWS vs Azure vs Google Cloud. AWS provides instances of virtual servers and virtual machines. Azure provides the virtual hard disks and Google cloud provides the virtual machine instances. For the Google cloud or cloud computing, it can be from On-demand and sustain use.
For cloud computing, GCP is the best. You use a cloud platform such as GCP when you require to build and run an application that can leverage the power of hyper-scale data centers in some way: to reach users worldwide, or to borrow sophisticated analytics and AI functions, or to use huge data storage, or to take advantage of cost efficiencies.

Azure coupled with StoneFly SCVM

by henrycartersmith93 In reply to Which one is better AWS, ...

Azure is 4-12% inexpensive when compared to AWS. Both have similar PaaS capabilities but Azure is much faster compared to AWS which is the most essential component when it comes to cloud computing.
Microsoft Azure Cloud delivers enterprise-grade reliability, scalability, and availability. With StoneFly’s storage solutions in Azure, enterprise users can create cloud backups, replicate enterprise workloads and mission-critical Virtual Machines (VMs), configure delta-based snapshots, and archive data for an indefinite period of time from a single centralized management console.

Which is better AWS, Azure or GCP?

AWS is more popular in this cloud battle of Azure vs AWS vs Google Cloud because it mostly comes out as a winner of all the major cloud providers, today. But, it’s hard to say for how long AWS will lead as a cloud provider, as Azure and GCP are also working to become top cloud providers. AWS has been the first of its kind, but Azure and GCP are also ready with their strengths. Azure cloud is mostly used by several organizations that use MS tools because it is easy to integrate MS tools with Azure cloud whereas, GCP is offering the best pricing model for the organizational infrastructure, and users need it because Google Search engine and YouTube can run on it.
So, if we consider all these things, then it would be better to say that it’s not about selecting the best cloud providers, but it is about selecting the best-suited cloud provider as per your needs.

AWS vs Azure vs GCP

There is no one-size-fits-all answer. It depends what you’re using public cloud for. They each have their own service catalog, pricing and purchasing variations.

Compute products make up about ⅔ of most companies’ cloud bills, so the similarities and differences here will account for the core of most users’ cloud experiences.

Pricing can also be a determining factor of why someone selects one cloud provider over the other. One way to compare the prices is by selecting a particular resource type, finding comparable versions across the cloud providers, and comparing prices. For the most accurate results, pull up each cloud provider’s price list. Of course, not all instance types will be as easy to compare across providers – especially once you get outside the core compute offerings into options that are more variable, more configurable, and perhaps even charged differently.

There are also a handful of available purchasing options offered by each of the cloud providers. Again, depending on your needs, one of these options may be more appealing than the others. An example of a purchasing option is reservations - each of the major cloud providers offers a way for customers to purchase compute capacity in advance in exchange for a discount: AWS Reserved Instances, Azure Reserved Virtual Machine Instances, and Google Committed Use discounts.

Another discounting mechanism is the idea of spot instances in AWS, low-priority VMs in Azure, and preemptible VMs, as they’re called on Google. Google Cloud Platform offers another cost-saving option that doesn’t have a direct equivalent in AWS or Azure: Sustained Use Discounts.

A last sort of purchasing option is related to contract agreements. With all three major cloud providers, enterprise contracts are available. Typically, these are aimed at enterprise customers, and encourage large companies to commit to specific levels of usage and spend in exchange for an across-the-board discount – for example, AWS EDPs and Azure Enterprise Agreements.

So, it’s hard to say that one cloud provider is better than the other when, on many variables, their offerings are so similar as to be equivalent. But, If there’s a particular area that’s especially important to your business (such as serverless, or integration with Microsoft applications), you may find that it becomes the deciding factor.

There’s also always the option to use multiple clouds so you will have access to the advantages of each provider.

AWS, Azure and GCP in Cloud Computing?

by jahagirdarajinkya In reply to Which one is better AWS, ...

The following are some important aspects wherein Azure scores over AWS.

1)PaaS Capabilities
Both Azure and AWS offer similar IaaS capabilities for virtual machines, networking, and storage. However, Azure provides stronger PaaS capabilities which is an important piece of Cloud infrastructure today. Microsoft Azure PaaS provides application developers with the environment, tools, and building blocks that they need to rapidly build and deploy new cloud services. It also provides the vital 'dev-ops' connections which are important for monitoring, managing, and continually fine tuning those apps. With Azure PaaS, much of the infrastructure management is taken care of behind the scenes by Microsoft. Thus, Azure development allows for a 100% focus on innovation.
2)Net Compatibility
Azure’s compatibility with the .Net programming language is one of the most useful benefits of Azure, which gives Microsoft a clear upper hand over AWS and the rest of the competitors. Azure has been built and optimized to work consistently with both old and new applications developed using the .Net programming framework. It is much easier and straightforward for enterprises to move their Windows apps to Azure Cloud as opposed to AWS or others. Thus for the several organizations that use .Net based enterprise apps, Azure is the obvious choice.
3)Security Offerings
Azure has been designed based on Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) which is an industry leading assurance process. It comprises security at its core and private data and services stay secured and protected while they are on Azure Cloud.
4)Hybrid solutions for Seamless Cloud Connectivity
While Amazon is still testing the hybrid waters, Azure already has its hybrid capabilities in place. It seamlessly connects datacenters to the Cloud. Azure provides a consistent platform which facilities easy mobility between on-premises and the public Cloud.
5)Integrated Environment
Azure brings to the table an integrated environment for developing, testing, and deploying Cloud apps. The choice of frameworks lies with the client, and open development languages further add to the flexibility for Azure migration. Additionally, ready-made services like web, mobile, media in addition to APIs and templates can be leveraged to kick start Azure application development. Azure PaaS brings together all the applications, data, devices, and partners, both on-premises and in the Cloud.

In the case of AWS, a very basic instance that includes 2 virtual CPUs and 8 GB of RAM will cost you around US$69 per month.

For the same type of instance, i.e., an instance with 2 vCPUs and 8 GB of RAM, in Azure, will cost you around US$70/month.

Compared to AWS, GCP will provide you the most basic instance, containing 2 virtual CPUs and 8 GB of RAM at a 25 percent cheaper rate. So, it will cost you around US$52/month.

Hope this is helpful
