Azure vs AWS vs Google Cloud

There is an intense race between the world’s three top cloud computing platforms, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud. Each of these platforms come with their own strengths and weaknesses, and each one has a dominant strength that it holds the market for.

Azure is a strong leader in the hybrid cloud environment, offering great interoperability with data centres, whilst Amazon Web Services is the leader in public cloud spaces, meaning it does not focus so much on interoperability with data centres as it does not worry itself too much with hybrid and private cloud solutions. Google Cloud Platform is a much newer addition to the trio and does not focus on offering the same enterprise cloud solutions that Azure and AWS do, so it does not attract the same corporate clients however, when it comes to machine learning and data analytics, the other two cannot compare.

Below is a comparison by EduCBA  showing the comparative differences between AWS, Azure and GCP when it comes to key elements such as caching, storage, GIT, kubernetes management and more:

So, what is the best option for your business?

When it comes to choosing a provider, each of them has the same capabilities as the other, however, their core focus may differ. Each of these cloud providers are capable of providing the same services to any organisation. The key differences are in how they do it and the technology sets they use, along with their pricing structure. With this in mind, when selecting the cloud provider, it really comes down to the user’s preference, and the specific projects that a user wants to utilise the cloud for.
