BATTLE OF THE CLOUDS:GOOGLE CLOUD Vs AMAZON WEB SERVICES Vs MICROSOFT AZURE:-
Cloud computing , the IT paradigm, allows the users to upload the data to the cloud and pay only as per the usage. Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure are among the top cloud hosting providers. Let us discuss and find out , the flavour of IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) public cloud provided by these three giant vendors, which the user needs.
Amazon Web Services is the niche leader of the IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service)public cloud computing market according to the industry experts, but they credit Microsoft for closing the gap with Azure and say Google with its Cloud Platform has made considerable strides as well.
Three years ago, according to a survey conducted in Feb 2017, AWS( Amazon Web Services) was a clear leader, meeting 92% of the required criteria for enterprise-grade IaaS public cloud providers, whereas Microsoft was back at 75%. AWS held steady at 92% last year, but Microsoft jumped up to 88% and Google came in at a respectable 70%.
COMPARISON OF BLOCK , OBJECT AND FILE STORAGE ACROSS THE THREE PROVIDERS:-
Each provider has their own strengths and weaknesses depending on the specific use case. Below are three of the most common cloud storage use cases and how the vendors stack up.
Block storage is the disk storage used in conjunction with cloud-based virtual machines. Each of the providers break their block storage offerings into two categories: traditional magnetic spinning hard-drive disks, or newer solid state disks (SSD), which are generally more expensive but have better performance. Customers can pay a premium to get a certain amount of guaranteedinput/output per second (IOPs), which basically is an indication of how fast the storage will save new information and read information stored in it.
Amazon’s product is named Elastic Block Store (EBS). Throughput Optimized or Cold HDD, which are traditional magnetic, spinning-disk offerings; General Purpose SSD are next-generation drives and Provisioned IOPS SSD, which Amazon says are designed for latency-sensitive transactional workloads.Azure’s block storage offering is called Managed Disks and comes in standard or premium with the latter based on SSDs.Google’s version is named Persistent Disks (PDs), which come in a standard or SSD option.
One of the most important factors to consider when buying block storage is how fast you need access to the data stored on the SSD disk. For that, the vendors offer different guaranteed rates of IOPs. Google is in the lead here; the company offers 40,000 IOPs for reads and 30,000 for
