AND NOW WE’RE LEVELING THE PLAYING FIELD For years, Microsoft Azure’s only weak point against AWS is the lack of a savings plan that enterprise clients can subscribe to, but in the recent news, they have announced the release of their Azure Savings Plans. Nick and Jason will be diving into this really exciting update for all cloud computing users out there and will be sharing their thoughts, so tune in and find out more in this latest episode of Cloud Cost Optimization. WORDS TO OPTIMIZE YOUR DAY JASON: Azure Savings Plans makes it easier to save money “I think they're making it easier to save money, I think historically, you know, this was a differentiator for AWS. Whereas, you know, Azure would come in and, you know, get you into some sort of Enterprise Agreement, which, you know, the enterprise agreements require a level of commitment that's a little bit different than what you would expect, you know, if you want to just go, I want to go spin some stuff up, right, get stuff working, I'm an organization like that.” NICK: Microsoft’s challenges before the Azure Savings Plans “I think Microsoft's been battling their legacy customer licensing model for quite a while, and AWS didn't have that problem. From the start, they were able to adopt an enterprise discount program that made sense in the context of offering public cloud service rights that were consumption-based.” Get to know our hosts in the links below: Nick Lumsden | Jason Yaeger Get a free assessment and optimize your environment in TenacityCloud.com
