Microsoft and Google Gain Ground on AWS

Microsoft and Google Gain Ground on AWS

June 19, 2017 in Microsoft, Corporate IT Training / by Ryan Grawe

Although there are many cloud computing vendors in the marketplace, some of the major players are making strong moves towards the top. In an article taken from Redmond Channel Partner, Jeffrey Schwartz describes the increasing usage of Microsoft and Google’s respective cloud platforms. The following is taken from Schwartz’ article, Microsoft, Google Gaining on AWS, But Not Quickly Enough. To read the full article, follow the link at the bottom of the page.

As the current cloud field stands, leader Amazon Web Services (AWS) may be ceding some market share to Microsoft Azure and the Google Cloud Platform (GCP), but the challengers still have a lot of ground to make up. Among the big three public cloud infrastructure providers, Microsoft Azure has clearly established itself as No. 2. Considering that it’s a distant second, Azure has gained considerable ground on Amazon Web Services over the past year. While Azure still has a reasonable lead over the Google Cloud Platform, the latter has also grown significantly.As the competitors move closer, AWS remains poised to hold on to its clear lead. The RightScale 2017 State of the Cloud Report shows that 57 percent of customers are currently running applications in AWS, the same number as last year. Meanwhile, 34 percent are running apps in Azure, compared with 20 percent last year; and 15 percent are using GCP, up from 10 percent last year.Read More

Bio

“I have worked as a clerk for QuikTrip for the past 7 years. I have learned several skills from this position: active listening, teamwork, and time management in a fast-paced environment. Prior to that I worked for a catering company where I learned the importance of communication, multi-tasking and how to coordinate with other groups/teams. Recently, I noticed I had lost the joy, fulfillment, and satisfaction I once had and knew it was time to seek out a new challenge. I had never seen myself as a developer until I started classes at Centriq Training. Now, I cannot express how excited I am to begin my career in the IT Industry. I am pleased to say attending Centriq has been one of the greatest highlights of my life.Read More

“Originally from the Dominican Republic, I moved here in the early 2000’s. In the beginning years, it was difficult for me to communicate with my classmates so, throughout my high school career I was very involved in the fine arts, sports, and student government to refine my English and engage more with my classmates. These activities led me to the University of Missouri-Kansas City where I graduated with a Bachelors in Political Science. While at UMKC, I was involved in Read More
