Is Azure really cheaper?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 12:14 pm

Azure is the cloud platform from Microsoft. It offers a variety of services, including Windows Azure, Office 365, and Azure Active Directory. Microsoft has been touting Azure as the cheapest platform for a while now, and it definitely seems to be true. A recent study byzoo Research found that Azure was 46% cheaper than AWS and 58% cheaper than Google Cloud Platform. However, there are some caveats to this study.

PRO TIP: When considering whether or not to use Azure, cost is often a primary concern. However, it’s important to consider all aspects of cost when making your decision. Azure may be cheaper in some areas, but it could also be more expensive in others. Make sure to consider all factors before making your final decision.

For one, it only looked at the monthly cost of each platform. It didn’t take into account the total cost of ownership, which would be more relevant for businesses. Additionally, the study only looked at the price of individual services, not the entire platform. So, while Azure is definitely cheaper than some of the other cloud platforms, it’s not necessarily the cheapest option overall.
