Well, this facelift was long over due. With the launch of Microsoft Azure some two years ago, the Amazon Web Services console looked dated over night. It still does to some extent. I haven’t had the time to dig deeper, but I will.
This war in prices, usability and features will make the future for services look really nice and shiny.
Here a look of the new console
I still think Azure looks more modern. But as I said, I’ll dig deeper. Perhaps brush up my Node.js project…
However, to get access to the underlying Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances you still have to use the old, messy, interface at EC2.
So, Microsoft is ahead in the GUI category but AWS is waaay ahead when it comes to features.
