Cloud Services Comparison – Azure and AWS

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The below table compares the service names available in Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS). Whilst discussing blob storage in Azure, I was asked, what is the equivalent service name for blob storage in Amazon Web Services (AWS). I am not familiar with AWS, but thought it would be worth documenting a comparison for my own knowledge and for visitors to this website.

As always, please comment below with your feedback. Thank you
