As the leading public cloud platforms, Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS) each offer businesses a broad and deep set of capabilities with global coverage. Yet many organizations choose to use both platforms together for greater choice and flexibility, as well as to spread their risk and dependencies with a multi-cloud approach. Consulting companies and software vendors may also want to build on and use both Azure and AWS as this combination represents the majority of the cloud market demand.

To help decide which platform is right for your needs, we’re kicking off a new 5 part mini-series today showcasing and demoing Microsoft Azure features as well as comparing them to Amazon Web Services to see how they match up.

    I find it interesting your NOT using a MS EDGE or Internet Explorer Web Browser to show this ... You would think a MS based instruction would show / use it or make a mention on why using Firefox

    We used Firefox in this session to showcase the cross-platform standards-based support for the Azure cloud platform - Any modern browser with HTML5/JavaScript/CSS support will work fine for web-based administration.  Hope this helps!

    Hi Keith and Tiu

    Thanks for this presentation; I am wondering how one can leverage on Azure / AWS cloud infrastructure (VMs, Apps) while keeping users and business data (files, SQL Databases,) in his local storage; this is for confidentiality reasons. Is that scenario already discussed and what would be the impact on performance?

    Best Regards
