If you remember, ones we promised you to update our material about AWS vs. GCP comparison? Today we eventually have done this! Meet the new AWS vs. Google Cloud vs. Microsoft Azure with emphasis of that they have in common and what are their main differences!

With AWS Lambda, Google Cloud Functions, and Microsoft Azure Functions, a little bit of business logic can go a very long way.

  • AWS Lambda is growing into the shell script layer for Amazon’s entire cloud. It’s a basic system that lets you embed functions that respond to events that might be generated by almost any part of the vast Amazon cloud infrastructure. You can write Lambda functions in JavaScript (Node.js), Python, Java, C#, and Go. Writing Lambda functions often feels much more complex than you expect because Amazon offers so many options for configuration and optimization.
  • If getting rid of the hassle of configuring servers is your goal, Google Cloud has a number of services that offer various amounts of freedom from things like needing a root password or even using a command line at all. Starting with the Google App Engine in 2008, Google has been slowly adding different ‘serverless’ options with various combinations of messaging and data transparency. At this time, Cloud Functions is largely just an option for writing Node.js code that will run in a pre-configured Node environment. While the rest of the Google Cloud Platform supports a wide variety of languages—from Java and C# to Go, Python, and PHP—Cloud Functions is strictly limited to JavaScript and Node.
  • Microsoft is working just as hard as the others to make sure that people can do all of these clever serverless things with the Azure cloud too. The company has created its own basic functions for juggling events—the Azure Functions—and built some sophisticated tools that are even more accessible to semi-programmers. The biggest advantage Microsoft may have maybe its collection of Office applications, the former desktop executables that are slowly but surely migrating into the cloud.

FInd more about all of them here.

While we’re still working on that you might enjoy the example of creating a serverless API using Microsoft Azure. What if you want or need to make your own API?
