Kinvey vs Microsoft Azure: What are the differences?
Developers describe Kinvey as "Cloud Backend as a Service for any app". Kinvey makes it ridiculously easy for developers to setup, use and operate a cloud backend for their mobile apps. They don't have to worry about connecting to various cloud services, setting up servers for their backend, or maintaining and scaling them. On the other hand, Microsoft Azure is detailed as "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.
Kinvey and Microsoft Azure are primarily classified as "Mobile Backend" and "Cloud Hosting" tools respectively.
Some of the features offered by Kinvey are:
- User Management- Add any number of users, using the authentication systems of your choice.
- Business Logic- Kinvey's custom business logic allows you to host your code in our cloud.
- Data Storage- Instantly and securely sync data between your app and Kinvey backend.
On the other hand, Microsoft Azure provides the following key features:
- Use your OS, language, database, tool
- Global datacenter footprint
- Enterprise Grade with up to a 99.95% monthly SLA
"Easy setup" is the primary reason why developers consider Kinvey over the competitors, whereas "Scales well and quite easy" was stated as the key factor in picking Microsoft Azure.
