AWS vs Azure vs Google Cloud how to evaluate a cloud service that’s right for your business
Many view cloud services as an opportunity to lower hardware costs and “outsource” network management, infrastructure upgrades, and security to experts with the appropriate staff and resources to do a better job than their own companies can do in-house.
Choosing the right cloud platform that fits your business can be a daunting task. Our eBook, “How to Evaluate a Cloud Service that’s Right for Your Business,” can give you a clear idea of the top 3 cloud platforms.
We’ve compared AWS, Azure and Google Cloud based on:
- Cloud Services and Features
- Database Services
- Backup Services
- Machine Learning
- Regions and Availability Zones

Amazon Web Services
In terms of market share, AWS (Amazon Web Services) is the clear winner. Amazon’s dominance is partly due to its early market entrance. Amazon launched AWS in 2002, while Google launched Google Cloud in 2009.
The following year, Microsoft launched its cloud service. Since then, they all have a solid customer base. All three services are “battle-tested” by major global corporations, and that means you can generally rely on them to provide highly secure and elastic services with plenty of features to help your business grow.
While choosing a cloud computing service, it’s challenging trying to make a cost comparison amongst the three providers. Since all three have a similar target audience, the pricing for AWS, Azure and Google is commodified.
As they’re also highly responsive, the competitor pricing is a moving target. To choose the right, most cost-effective provider right for your business operations, you must understand the features of each which meet your specific needs and computing priorities.
Every business offers various kinds of support. In this eBook, we have split up and showcased the different types of support provided by each organization. This will help you choose the right service provider that fits your business’ requirements.
Amazon support costs are based on the monthly AWS usage. For example, the company charges 10% of monthly AWS usage for the first $0–$10K, with costs going down from there for business-level customers. Whereas Microsoft, in contrast, charges $100 per month for a similar business plan level requirement. With Google, the costs are steep: $250 per month, per user.
