IBM Goes After Azure

IBM and Microsoft haven't stopped competing and complaining since the famous split over OS/2 versus Windows. Afterwards, IBM bought Redmond's sworn enemy Lotus and has been a thorn in Exchange's side ever since.

Lately IBM has been pushing its cloud technologies and services against Azure. IBM Cloud (now there's a simple, straightforward name!) right now is aimed at developers. But the ultimate plan is to have a public cloud with an array of application services such as WebSphere and DB2.

Whom do you trust more in the cloud? IBM, Microsoft, Google or Amazon? Shoot your answers over the ether to dbarney@redmondmag.com.
