Now raging: The 3 cloud battles that matter most
JANUARY 22, 2016
The public cloud wars are over, and three providers have emerged as the powers: Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, and Google, the trio I call AMG. Yes, IBM, Oracle, and HP Enterprise remain in the game, but they're not really players. As a cloud consultant, I don't see them in deals any more, and I suspect that they can't keep up with AMG's massive spending on R&D and marketing. So now what? The big war for the public cloud may be over, but several cloud markets will be active battlegrounds.
