Cloud computing has become an essential element of the business in today’s world. Over the past decade, many business enterprises have turned to cloud providers to host IT infrastructure rather than utilizing their on-premise data centres. One of the primary reasons for the same is that cloud solutions have become more cost-efficient, reliable and secure, allowing businesses and individuals to deploy applications, store data and perform various tasks without the need for extensive on-site infrastructure.
Cloud service providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud offers range of services like Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), and Desktop as a Service (Daas) making computing resources more accessible and adaptable for backend hosting solutions.
Dominance of AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Service
Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) dominate the cloud computing industry. AWS, a pioneer, boasts the largest market share, with a vast global infrastructure. Azure leverages Microsoft’s enterprise presence, offering seamless integration with Windows services. GCP focuses on innovation, especially in machine learning and data analytics.
However, one common challenge across these platforms is the significant cost of cloud services. Approximately 90% of operation costs for many businesses are attributed to cloud bills. It’s crucial to optimize resource usage, leverage cost management tools, and monitor services continuously to keep cloud expenses in check and maximize the benefits of these powerful cloud platforms.
HyperScaler Boat (paying for overbuild and hardly used infra power by mid levels)
Starting in 2006, AWS was the pioneer cloud computing platform and has been conquering the market since then. With just 6 services in 2010, they have introduced more than 200 services with worldwide coverage. Similarly GCP began life as Google App Engine in 2008 but further developed into an Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider which supported use of virtual machines. Further expanding to data storage layers, load balancer, DNS monitoring and data analysis services.
However, the catch of these hyperscale offerings is that the industry giants set sail on this journey by introducing cloud services tailored for the 0.1% of power users. Remaining 99% of the mid-level users and businesses were struggling to bear the expense, as they found themselves navigating in waters where all the giants have overbuilt and still underutilized their needs. In this vast ocean of cloud computing, the crucial quest to find the right balance remained unanswered.
