MWAA vs Step Functions


How do I choose between MWAA (Managed Workflows for Apache Airflow) and Step Functions? It seems like I can do the same thing with both. Is there a side-by-side code example showing the same use case in both systems so I can see the differences?

There is already answer in another forum: More info on the choice can also be found in

Step Function is serverless version of workflow management.

Airflow / MWAA is open-source and server-based. Some people are more familiar with Airflow and would like to reuse their Airflow experience in AWS but prefer to not manage servers so much. In that case, they should pick MWAA.
