AWS CloudFormation

We create the resource stack with AWS CloudFormation. We can manage all the resources as a bundle. We can update the entire stack by updating the AWS CloudFormation template. It is very easy to delete the entire resource with AWS CloudFormation. If we do those resource creations and manage them manually, then we need to do lots of manual involvements. When we use AWS CloudFormation, we can reduce time to create and manage resources.

Azure NetApp Files

In my opinion, I would say it is more suitable to huge workloads, where you really needs the reliability and performance that a Netapp storage provides to you, larger share sizes, etc. Use cases where you really needs to store large amounts of non-structured data.It is not a cheap solution, I mean, you can find other options to store your data on the Cloud at smaller prices. So, for small companies, or companies that depends mostly on web-applications, or don't have such a specific requirements, I would not go with Azure Netapp Files.

Azure NetApp Files

  • Our organization is combination of IBM. it has large applications built on SAP based. these application data is critical to the organization and highest level of security which can be granted from Azure NetApp Files storage.
  • With this storage, we get at most security to the data and also very effective on performance point of view
  • it is very easy to implement for any sort of applications especially for SAP in our organization for large store of data on file system with high level of protection
  • Our Organization has different departments and are connected to Information Technology. most of our databases reside on SQL server and some of are on traditional Oracle databases. Based on company requirement, created several capacity pools and Volumes and assign each to data files, log and back up files of databases. this is the way we get better output and outstanding performance on managing servers with the help of Azure NetApp Files.
  • Based on size of each database on SQL server, it is very easy to customize data and log files and can be placed in different volumes in Azure Net App File system and can allocate required size to the file system and it can be adjusted for auto growth.
  • with this service, our organization accomplished better and safer way of handling databases and other files with these services.

Cons

AWS CloudFormation

  • Better examples
  • There are oddities with the yaml aspects of it, that make it a bit cumbersome
  • A template for use cases that are easily fillable - or just some place to start.

Azure NetApp Files

  • It does not support file locking although its available as an add-on
  • Design is far from native and has a learning curve
  • We would like to have backup functionality built in so that we don't run into the issue where the replication process makes a copy of the corrupted data.

Alternatives Considered

AWS CloudFormation

AWS CloudFormation has more features and robustness. It is suited for professional projects since it provides stability and a wide variety of options for configurations. These include not only dividing stacks by specific code changes, but also in regions. This allows more granularity and control over all stacks. If you want to delete them all just by a region, you can do it.

Azure NetApp Files

Azure NetApp Files is very well integrated with Microsoft Azure, we use the same request methods that everyone knows from Azure. NetApp and Microsoft has built a very efficient solution that allows you to transfer virtually any service to the Microsoft public cloud. Azure NetApp Files also protects our data very well.

Azure NetApp Files

  • Our on-phone employees have been able to retrieve documents faster while on the phone, translating into better sales and retention rates.
  • We don't have to maintain as many of our own file storage devices, allowing our IT team to focus on other mission-critical pieces.

Additional Pricing Details
There is no additional charge for using AWS CloudFormation with resource providers in the following namespaces: AWS::*, Alexa::*, and Custom::*. In this case you pay for AWS resources (such as Amazon EC2 instances, Elastic Load Balancing load balancers, etc.) created using AWS CloudFormation as if you created them manually. You only pay for what you use, as you use it; there are no minimum fees and no required upfront commitments. When you use resource providers with AWS CloudFormation outside the namespaces mentioned above, you incur charges per handler operation. Handler operations are create, update, delete, read, or list actions on a resource.
