Thinking About Today#

Before you go off thinking that this Cloud Service Provider is best, remember your Cloud computing objective. All of these mentioned have some capabilities in most of the same areas, but what do you need from a Cloud Service Provider?

Generally, this is a good break down on the Cloud Service Providers:

Google and Microsoft keep blending different businesses together to come up with a total cloud number. Should Microsoft's Office 365 and Google's G-Suite be included in Cloud Service Provider numbers?

GCP chief Diane Greene lamented that people have been "grossly underestimating" GCP's revenue, suggesting that this was the reason the company finally put a number on its cloud business: $1 billion each quarter.

Biggest Cloud Service Provider?#

This, sort of, implies that perhaps most(?) IOS and Android Apps may store their data on Google Cloud Storage.

It is presumed Google probably has more active capacity than the others. (Other rumors on NSA and several other acronym-Government Entity may also)
