DazeInfo - Amazon AWS vs Google Cloud Platform vs Microsoft Azure: Which Public Cloud Is Best for You?

Here’s a post that takes some of the mystery out of the big three infrastructure as a service players:

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the titan of public cloud services, but Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform are getting more competitive every day. According to Goldman Sach, spendings on Cloud Computing will grow at a 30% CAGR between 2013 and 2018 compared with 5% growth of overall enterprise IT. By 2018, 59% of total cloud workloads will be Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), up from 41% in 2013. 28% cloud workloads would be Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and 13% will be Platform-as-a-Service(PaaS). Let’s do a service-by-service comparison to determine which public cloud is right for your business.

AWS: The Established Frontrunner

Amazon AWS organizes its services into four main categories: Compute, Databases, Networking, and Storage & Content Delivery. Amazon has its own Hadoop framework called EMR, and it also offers Kinesis, which can process real-time data streams. AWS offers managed NoSQL and relational database services, many third-party integrations, and a strong encryption platform. It also supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux, which Azure doesn’t, and its GovCloud provides instant regulatory compliance for government agencies.
