Today in this article we will look at the Cloud Computing Service and a comparison between Amazon Web Service (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Service (GCS). First of all, let us have a general understanding of what Cloud Computing is all about? Cloud Computing is one of the most trending topics in today’s technology world. According to Wikipedia Cloud Computing is the On-Demand Availability of Computer System Resources, especially data storage (cloud storage) and computing power, without direct active management by user. The term is generally used to describe data centers available to many users over the internet. Previously before cloud computing what we need to do was build separate infrastructure or data center for storage, computing and various other functionality. This infrastructure development and maintenance also cost extra skilled manpower, But with the introduction of Cloud Computing the practice has changed, you can now order On-Demand Cloud Computing Platform and pay as you go which also means that you pay only for what you use and the time you use. For example, if you use a cloud service for 2 hours than you pay for 2 hours only. Today most of the IT Institution are relying on Cloud Computing to perform such actions. Similarly, Cloud Computing Providers are also Increasing their services ranging from storage, computing, networking, artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things (IOT), Natural Language Processing (NLP) and many more.
History Of Cloud Computing
According to Wikipedia, Reference to the phrase "Cloud Computing" appeared as early as 1996, with the first known mention in a Compaq internal document. However, cloud computing was popularized by Amazon after releasing of its Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) service in 2006.
As of 2020, Here is the list of some of the top cloud service providers in the globe.
1) Amazon Web Service (AWS)
2) Microsoft Azure
3) Google Cloud Service (GCS)
4) Alibaba Cloud
5) IBM Cloud
6) Oracle Cloud and many more.
Today Amazon Web Service (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Service (GCS) are Leaders in terms of Cloud Service Providers. And we are going to compare these three platforms in this article. Now, without any delay let us move into the comparison of AWS, Azure and Google Cloud.
AWS Vs Azure Vs Google Cloud:
