Azure vs. AWS
Why is Azure growing so quickly? Because organizations all over the world recognize Azure over AWS as the most trusted cloud with:
- The most regions
- Unmatched hybrid capabilities
- The strongest intelligence
Trust the cloud that helps protect your work
When you compare AWS vs. Azure, you’ll find that Azure has more comprehensive compliance coverage with 50 compliance offerings. To protect your organization, we embed security, privacy, and compliance into our development methodology. Azure has been recognized as the most trusted cloud for U.S. government institutions, earning a FedRAMP High authorization that covers 18 Azure services. Plus, Azure IP Advantage provides best-in-industry intellectual property protection, so you can focus on innovation, instead of worrying about baseless lawsuits.
“It felt like companies that needed to be compliant were being punished for it by having to pay more. Now, with Microsoft Cloud’s scalable and pay-as-you-go model, we can be competitive while offering world-class service, flexibility, and security.”
Ed Anderson, Managing Director, Dyrand Systems
Innovate with unmatched intelligence
Azure is the only public cloud that provides Cognitive APIs, Bots, Machine Learning, and Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) capabilities for developers and data scientists. Build intelligent solutions at scale by pairing these capabilities with powerful GPU-based compute to accelerate deep learning, enable HPC simulations, and conduct real-time data analytics using Azure N-Series Virtual Machines.
“Thousands of partners sign in to our platform every hour. The response time from the Face API is incredible, enabling us to verify our drivers without slowing them down.”
Dina Kovalev, Product Manager, Uber
Expand globally with more regions than any other cloud provider
Achieve global scale with 40 announced Azure regions. Our priority on geographic expansion means you can choose the datacenter and region that’s right for you and your customers, with the performance and support you need, where you need it.
“By using Microsoft global datacenters, we’re able to move infrastructure for key applications and websites closer to the people who use them. It would have been extremely difficult, expensive, and time-consuming to set up this infrastructure on the other side of the world using Callaway-owned servers.”
Dan Cowles, Manager of Solution Development, Callaway Golf
