Today on the Datanauts: public clouds. AWS and Azure are two of the most popular public cloud offerings, and we’ll look at how they compare. Our guest is Eric Shanks, a senior solutions architect at Ahead and founder of the blog The IT Hollow.
We’ll look at how organizations decide which cloud service to adopt, the phobias around cloud lock-in, the application architecture decisions that have to be made when embracing the cloud, and myths about cloud savings.
We also explore the differences between AWS and Azure around pricing and capability, and also discuss the importance of understanding the constraints that come with a cloud service regardless of the provider you choose.
Last but not least we drill into workload mobility and the stickiness of storage, and whether orchestration tools may be the driver of true hybrid clouds.
