Comparing AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform

June 12th, 2020

When it comes to choosing between the three leaders in public cloud infrastructure, comparisons can be difficult. Between them, AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) offer a bewildering array of services, as well as pricing plans that can sometimes seem frustratingly cryptic.

Datamation recently updated their public cloud comparison article, which does a pretty good job clearing-up some of the mystery. While not perfect (see the comments to grasp some of the oversights) it is still a valuable resource when trying to understand these providers’ comparative strengths and weaknesses. While necessarily incomplete in such a fast-moving marketplace, the table at the end, laying-out what each vendor offers for common business needs, is particularly helpful.
