Tech Shootout: Azure vs. AWS vs. GCP: Which Cloud Platform Works Best for Which Enterprise Services?
Date: Friday, July 17th at 9 a.m. PDT / Noon EDT
Working in tech, we're all addicted to speeds and feeds. In this session, we'll get into that specs and scale discussion about the public cloud, which, after all, represent by far the biggest honking computers available for any IT department at any budget.
We'll take a broad look at the major public cloud providers — Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud (plus a few other standouts) — from a comparative standpoint.
We'll answer the most common questions:
- Whose services are the fastest?
- Whose datacenters are the biggest?
- Which platforms have the big momentum?
- What platform has the highest availability?
- Who has the broadest set of services, the deepest ecosystem, the most open source enthusiasm?
At the end of this session, attendees will have a sense of the conventional wisdom on the various strengths of these platforms, as well as some insights into a few areas where that conventional wisdom is running slightly behind reality.
