Well, 3500 free hours is a lot of time to waste if you find out that it´s not the best solution for your Company, that´s why I would suggest to study the characteristics that offers each solution to implement in relation to the needs of the project and organisation.

In my humble opinion both solutions are great, at the moment the 2 strongest providers are Microsoft and AWS, but in order to be able to choose between Microsoft and Oracle we need to know more about the nature of the project. We would need more details such as the scale of the project, the lifespan, budget....
I would compare also the Infrastructure Security Design, Developer Tools each solutions offers, elasticity, scalability...., etc. before taking a decision.

Conclusion: there is not a bad solution it all depends of your needs (There is no black or white)

At one level both providers are about the same. The biggest difference is the billing and service models.If you have a business relationship with Microsoft for other products and services then bundling in Azure could be a win. It may reduce some costs but at the very least you have 1 fewer service providers to deal with.I tend to like AWS but that is just because I am familiar with their services. One thing to keep track of is the costs. I have one client who really wants to move to AWS but cannot find a way to get over the 8-10 times increase in monthly costs over operating out of a shared data center with purchased equipment.
