Between Amazon and Azure, what is the most cost-effective data storage?
Azure Backup is cost-effective, secure, reliable and provides consistent backup options.
Azure’s Geo-redundant storage (GRS) replicates your data to a second region (hundreds of miles away from the primary location of the source data) and provides a higher level of durability for data, even if there is a regional outage.
As the functionalities of the existing IT system are insufficient to provide efficient services to the customers, migrating the same to Cloud will not benefit NursesRU to meet its business objectives. For instance, there is no provision for the potential staff to register themselves with NursesRU and customers cannot request for staff through online in the existing system. Therefore, developing a new application in the cloud becomes a necessity. Both Amazon Webservices and Microsoft Azure offer great Platform as a Service and Infrastructure as a service option for developing applications.
Amazon is primarily Iaas, and there is no limit to the languages and technologies which can be installed and run. Common languages such as Java, Python, Perl, Ruby, and others are readily available in AWS. Thus, Amazon provides great flexibility to select technologies for our application. Also, we have great control over the development environment. Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) provides scalable computing capacity in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud. Using Amazon EC2 eliminates the need to invest in hardware up front and application can be developed and deployed faster. Amazon EC2 can be used to launch as many or as few virtual servers as needed, configure security and networking, and manage storage. Amazon EC2 enables you to scale up or down to handle changes in requirements. The application can be easily deployed and managed using Amazon’s Paas Elastic Beanstalk.
