BriForum 2014 Boston - Elias Khnaser - Showdown: AWS vs. Azure for Desktop Delivery


Presented by Elias Khnaser

It’s time, your moving to the cloud (insert cheers). Now comes the big question: to which one? You already have O365 but you are really interested in that S3/Glacier storage for backup.?? In this session we will do a showdown between two of the biggest players and also strong Citrix partners on the market, Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure. We will compare how their different feature sets, service offerings and technologies affect your ability to deliver a modern desktop delivery solution using a public cloud. We will compare key features like: available SaaS (database, exchange, AD, storage etc.), automation, deployment and backup , cost models, BYOL (Bring-Your-Own-License) , integration with existing on-premise platforms , load balancing, network, traffic optimization and external access, available guidelines/reference architectures, comparing toolsets like Powershell/SCVMM/Azurepack vs. CloudFormation/AutoScale and use of cloud offered services like Amazon Workspaces.

Attendees will learn:
• Understanding technology difference between AWS and Azure
• Difference in the public cloud cost and license models
• Challenges/solutions regarding their SaaS/IaaS options
• Guidance on which cloud is better for you
