If we're trying to build an ASP.NET MVC application (that's going to use SQL databases), should we use Windows Azure or Amazon EC2? We're assuming since we're going to use SQL, then Windows Azure will be the better fit but we wanted to check first. Thanks for the input!

    I don't think the fact that it will use SQL server necessarily means that Azure is a better fit. SQL Server will run just fine on a virtual machine, regardless of where that VM is hosted.

    But Azure is a very broad topic.  You would need to clarify what Azure service you are planning to use.

    Those platforms are different, and they will charge you differently as well.  That is something you should also take into account.
