Azure Storage vs RunAbove: What are the differences?
Developers describe Azure Storage as "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. On the other hand, RunAbove is detailed as "Extreme High-Performance Cloud Computing & Object Storage". We give you full access to the OpenStack API, which our compute (Nova) and storage (Swift) solutions are based on. This means no provider lock-in and easy automation of all your deployments. You can also manage your account and billing details via our RESTful API. You can choose between Horizon or OVH's easy-to-use web panel.
