Which cloud platform will win in the short and long term?

Mar 31 30 Comments

I am looking to invest some time in learning about one of the three big cloud platforms - Google Cloud Platform, Azure and AWS.

I am a new graduate with a computer engineering degree and no prior experience with cloud platforms. Hoping to enroll on some online courses and get some certs to my name to learn about configuring, deploying apps and developing apps on the cloud.

However I had a debate with my friend as to which one of three top cloud providers should I invest my time in today.

What do you guys think. I have attached a poll.

    Google had a poor track record in providing enterprise services to other companies. Somehow long-term support is not in their DNA.

      Oracle Cloud is an abomination. It’s a joke and should never see the light of day.

    Wait you forgot to add OCI, the fastest growing cloud

      Just like how Azure does it?

      But, Microsoft is much better than oci at cloud.

      If you go from 0 to 1 customers then you are “fastest growing”

      Azure was adding to enterprise agreements 6+ years ago but quickly realized to incent sellers on consumption- not stuffing on ea and discounting. so I think that is different then what Oracle is doing to get revenue and map in onOrem stuff to cloud revenue

    I have played with all the cloud platforms. In terms of features and sophisticated control panel, Microsoft's cloud platform wins.

      This has covered a lot of ground in the past year or two.

    There's a place for all of the ones in your survey. AWS is a good starting point. GCP infra was made more performant from the start, but AWS and Azure to an extent are catching up.

  • I used them all. gcp sucks and the fact it's even that high in the poll shows that most of you didn't ever use it

      Why is GCP bad? I am curious. Their big query seems to be good. And Ec2 equivalent as well.

      Or is just support bad?
      Mar 31
    • There is no support. Google sends you to private support partners that don't know anything.
      Their ec2 instance (forgot the name) was also constantly nightly being "seamlessly" rescheduled on their underlying infra but we would definitely see that impact out apps.

      It is still not very mature at all from what I saw and it's difficult to compete with how well Amazon does things. I never had a single issue with aws and their support is top notch

    👆 this. There will always be at least 2 winners. True redundancy begins with 2 separate cloud providers. Most likely AWS and Azure will be your 2 Corp/gov cloud providers.

    Microsoft- long term . Amazon - short term

    For what it’s worth, our regulator has said we can’t be locked into one vendor so we have platforms running in two of the top vendors at all times. I’m sure the SIFIs / SIBs probably have similar regs on them

    All 3 will be around for awhile, so it won’t hurt to learn any of them. The best bet though is aws since it’s been around the longest and has the biggest market share.

      And more candidate competition. Every Tom dick and Jane is doing AWS. It’s good to know all of them - but if you had to choose - look at a specific vertical or tech that you want to focus on and go based on that. They all offer so many sub-capabilities it makes sense to specialize.
