Microsoft Azure vs OVH: What are the differences?

Developers describe Microsoft Azure 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. On the other hand, OVH is detailed as "Dedicated infrastructure for your business". Hundreds of new servers are installed in our 12 datacenters everyday. For our clients, this guarantees bare-metal resources accessible in less than an hour, and the liberty to use it to rollout the software of their choice. The many functions available on our dedicated servers allow our clients to manage their infrastructure autonomously.

Microsoft Azure belongs to "Cloud Hosting" category of the tech stack, while OVH can be primarily classified under "Dedicated Cloud Hosting".

Some of the features offered by Microsoft Azure are:

  • Use your OS, language, database, tool
  • Global datacenter footprint
  • Enterprise Grade with up to a 99.95% monthly SLA

On the other hand, OVH provides the following key features:

  • Delivery of servers in less than an hour 24/7/365
  • Full user control
  • Guaranteed bandwidth

"Scales well and quite easy" is the top reason why over 108 developers like Microsoft Azure, while over 51 developers mention "Cost effective" as the leading cause for choosing OVH.

According to the StackShare community, Microsoft Azure has a broader approval, being mentioned in 489 company stacks & 463 developers stacks; compared to OVH, which is listed in 66 company stacks and 24 developer stacks.
