At the intersection of the three biggest CSPs in software development is…you.

In a multi-cloud world, organizations may use different cloud providers for multiple capabilities concurrently. Most of the cloud service providers (CSP) out there offer high-quality services, with excellent availability, high security, good performance, and customer support. But the market is dominated by a top three—Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure.

Each CSP provides an array of products covering all you can possibly need for your online operations. They differ not only in pricing but also in how each names and groups their services. Below, we show the most common elements: infrastructure, auto-scaling, security, monitoring, and much more. Our aim is to help cross-identify comparative services from each CSP so that you can easily weigh your application or workload requirements to select the best fit for your business.

Cloud Services Comparison List

Compute

Calculate, process, and compute—a computer’s fundamental role. In addition, the right cloud provider can scale to thousands of processing nodes for you in just a few minutes.


Storage

A key function of cloud services is its storage capabilities. While AWS’ storage services are the longest-running, Google’s and Microsoft Azure’s are also very respectable and reliable options.

Networking and Content Delivery

Each provider offers different networks and partners which interconnect their data centers across the globe using a variety of different products to achieve this.


Database

All three providers allow you to implement both SQL and NoSQL solutions. Alternatively, if you don’t need a database, go for their caching capabilities instead.


Management and Monitoring

Each of the top three offers a range of management and monitoring services which provide visibility into the health, performance, and utilization of applications, workloads, and infrastructure.

Security

Here, we cover the range of capabilities provided to protect services and data.

Developer Tools

And finally, the tools you need to build, deploy, diagnose, debug, and manage multiplatform, scalable applications and services.
