Cloud Storage Comparative Analysis Amazon Simple Storage vs. Microsoft Azure Blob Storage

Zouheir Daher and Hassan Hajjdiab
Abstract—A cloud computing service that allows data to be stored, retrieved and edited from a remote cloud storage server via Internet is called Cloud Storage Service . It delivers redundant, scalable and flexible storage capacity through Web Services Application Program Interface, thin client applications and online interfaces. Users’ demand on cloud based storage services has increased rapidly which has led to high competition between the Storage Service Providers (SSPs). This resulted in cheaper price per GB, better service and enhanced Quality of Experience (QoE). Despite the high public interest in cloud storage services, users are still having serious concerns about selecting the right storage service and on what basis their selection should depend based on their storage requirements. This paper provides a detailed comparative analysis between two major popular cloud storage services: (1) Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and (2) Microsoft Azure Blob Storage. It first describes the storage classes /tires for each one and then presents analytical comparison for their Granularity, Service Availability, Pricing, Scalability, Regional Availability, Security, Changing Access Tier and Performance. By comparing two benchmarks storage services, I aim to provide users guidelines for what and how to compare several storage services to select the right one that suits their special requirements and demands.

Index Terms—Acess tier, granularity, performance, pricing, security, scalability, storage.
