Cloud Provider Showdown: Amazon vs. Google vs. Microsoft [Webinar]

Deciding which cloud computing provider works best–and is best suited for your situation–is crucial in today’s agile development environments. But the landscape is getting a lot more competitive.

If you’re automatically thinking Amazon Web Services (AWS), is it truly the right fit for your organization or are you just playing follow the leader? Price drops on Azure have brought Microsoft into the battlefield for the public cloud, while allowing enterprise customers to take a hybrid approach. And Google seems willing to hold its pricing extremely low to gain market share. Early adopters of Google App Engine report that it’s a real and present threat to AWS. Meanwhile, AWS is fighting back with its recent provisional authorization to process “controlled unclassified” data from the U.S. Department of Defense, locking in the trust-and-authority appeal.


To help you sort things out, this free VentureBeat webinar—Showdown: AWS versus Google versus Azure, sponsored by New Relic—will take a close look at AWS, Azure, and Google in terms of what each one offers for enterprises as well as boutique application development shops.

With an all-star roster of speakers from top companies, the webinar will help you:

  • Provide visibility and control to self-service deployments
  • Understand whether open source is even a variable in your dev projects
  • Determine whether AWS, Google, Azure, or some other Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) is a good fit for your organization.
