One of the difficulties in navigating the features of each cloud provider is the ability (or lack of…) to be able to compare what feature is equivalent from one cloud provider to another. This is especially difficult with new feature announcements and updates coming out weekly! The pace has picked up, and it’s extremely difficult to keep up with!

There are very similar and some almost identical features of each Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services. Each company uses different names for each feature set that really are NOT simply Microsoft SQL vs Amazon SQL. Because of the naming and feature differences, this is extremely difficult to navigate when attempting to compare a Microsoft Azure product page to an Amazon Web Services product page.

Thankfully for us, Microsoft has put together a comparison page that allows you to easily compare what Microsoft Azure feature matches to which Amazon Web Services feature. This is something that is useful to both organizations looking to adopt Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services.
