In this episode of My TechDecisions Podcast, host and TD Managing Editor Jonathan Blackwood speaks with Dale Wickizer, CTO and Cofounder of ParkMyCloud.
Dale’s services for ParkMyCloud deal directly with Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services. There are few people as qualified to speak about the similarities and differences of the two services in an unbiased manner than dale.
We discuss why Microsoft Azure has seen such growth recently, and why the reports of that growth may be misleading. We also talk about the difference between Azure and Amazon Web Services, from capabilities to the language that they use to describe those capabilities.
Also discussed is advice for organizations first moving to the cloud, the benefits and drawbacks of hybrid cloud environments, and the value of working with an IT provider when migrating to the cloud. Finally, Dale explains how his company, ParkMyCloud, can help assuage some of the unseen costs that come with cloud environments.
Anyone interested in learning more about Azure and AWS, or want to learn how ParkMyCloud can help cut some unseen costs behind cloud environments, give a listen.
