Amazon Athena vs Azure Storage: What are the differences?

Amazon Athena: Query S3 Using SQL. Amazon Athena is an interactive query service that makes it easy to analyze data in Amazon S3 using standard SQL. Athena is serverless, so there is no infrastructure to manage, and you pay only for the queries that you run; Azure Storage: Reliable, economical cloud storage for data big and small. Azure Storage provides the flexibility to store and retrieve large amounts of unstructured data, such as documents and media files with Azure Blobs; structured nosql based data with Azure Tables; reliable messages with Azure Queues, and use SMB based Azure Files for migrating on-premises applications to the cloud.

Amazon Athena can be classified as a tool in the "Big Data Tools" category, while Azure Storage is grouped under "Cloud Storage".

"Use SQL to analyze CSV files" is the primary reason why developers consider Amazon Athena over the competitors, whereas "All-in-one storage solution" was stated as the key factor in picking Azure Storage.

According to the StackShare community, Azure Storage has a broader approval, being mentioned in 82 company stacks & 42 developers stacks; compared to Amazon Athena, which is listed in 47 company stacks and 17 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to Amazon Athena and Azure Storage?
      Presto
      Presto is an open source distributed SQL query engine for running interactive analytic queries against data sources of all sizes ranging from gigabytes to petabytes.
      Amazon Redshift Spectrum
      With Redshift Spectrum, you can extend the analytic power of Amazon Redshift beyond data stored on local disks in your data warehouse to query vast amounts of unstructured data in your Amazon S3 “data lake” -- without having to load or transform any data.
      Amazon Redshift
      Redshift makes it simple and cost-effective to efficiently analyze all your data using your existing business intelligence tools. It is optimized for datasets ranging from a few hundred gigabytes to a petabyte or more and costs less than $1,000 per terabyte per year, a tenth the cost of most traditional data warehousing solutions.
      Cassandra
      Partitioning means that Cassandra can distribute your data across multiple machines in an application-transparent matter. Cassandra will automatically repartition as machines are added and removed from the cluster. Row store means that like relational databases, Cassandra organizes data by rows and columns. The Cassandra Query Language (CQL) is a close relative of SQL.
