Choosing a cloud provider can be a tough process. There are lots of things that need to be considered before landing on the right solution for the development of any enterprise web application.
For new comers to the world of cloud computing, you will want to choose a cloud platform that can help to easily get started with learning cloud computing. It is extremely important to familiarize with various leading cloud service providers before deciding which cloud is best to get started in cloud computing.
Regardless of the reluctance of businesses to embrace new ways of working, it is vigilantly noticeable that cloud computing has apparently entered the mainstream of digital transformation. Amazon, and Microsoft are leading the way so far in recent times. While collectively, these two cloud providers dominate the space, their approach to cloud computing is dictated strongly by their background.
The best part is that these cloud providers offer a free trial to try out the platform. Many organizations look out for multiple cloud vendors (AWS vs Azure) that can help them avoid lock-in with one of the big two or even get benefits from the distinct capabilities of each platform, mostly while experimenting with AI and machine learning.

Most of the basic criteria IT managers tend to focus are cost and availability – neither AWS nor Azure is a clear winner. They are both really close to the same. In certain scenarios, one might control out over the other. AWS, to some extent has different billing increments for virtual machine run times, and so for on-and-off workloads, you can see a pricing difference between the two. But on the whole, they are similar.
