Microsoft Azure vs Civo: What are the differences?

What is Microsoft Azure? Integrated cloud services and infrastructure to support computing, database, analytics, mobile, and web scenarios. Azure is an open and flexible cloud platform that enables you to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. You can build applications using any language, tool or framework. And you can integrate your public cloud applications with your existing IT environment.

What is Civo? Built for speed and simplicity, with k3s under the hood. It is a community-driven cloud platform, with all the features a developer could need. If you want it, we'll build it – your vision shapes what we deliver.
