The Akk flood story is polytheistic: the storm is caused by the actions of various gods. The Noah story is embedded in a wider story of the wickedness of humankind, whereas the Akk flood story consists of a recounting by one person, Utnapishtim, whose name means “he has found (eternal) life,” of how he became immortal. Both accounts differ as to the cause of the flood and what occurs at its conclusion. Since it is his story, Utnapishtim does not know the reason for the flood, but he does know that he was made immortal at the end; that is, he had to withdraw from the world.
