How to think about Azure vs Packet
Microsoft has invested heavily in Azure over the last few years, and the results are starting to bear real fruit in the marketplace. By and large, Azure is a Microsoft version of AWS - a so-called "copycat cloud" with a range of services on top of a strong IaaS offering.
That being said, there are parts of Azure that we really love at Packet. For instance, we think AzureStack has a lot of promise, and Microsoft's embrace of Linux is nothing short of brilliant.
