The three leading cloud computing vendors, AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud, each have their own strengths and weaknesses that make them ideal for different cases.
The competition for leadership in the public cloud computing is fierce three-way race: AWS, Azure & Google. Clearly, for infrastructure as a service and platform as a service, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) hold a commanding position among the many cloud companies.
Amazon is particularly dominant. In a 2018 report, Synergy Research Group noted that spending on cloud infrastructure services jumped an astounding 51% over the prior year's quarter, noting: "AWS worldwide market share has held steady at around 33% for twelve quarters now, even as the market has almost tripled in size."
Meanwhile, Microsoft is particularly strong in SaaS, while Google Cloud, having changed leaders in 2018, is positioned for aggressive growth – and is known for offering discounts.
