Will Google Cloud overtake AWS?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 8:30 pm

As cloud computing continues to grow in popularity, so does the competition between Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud. Both AWS and Google Cloud are leading providers of cloud-based solutions, but which one is ultimately better?

Both AWS and Google Cloud offer a wide range of services, from compute, storage, and networking to analytics and machine learning. However, there are a few key distinctions between the two platforms that could determine which one emerges as the clear winner.

First and foremost, AWS is better equipped to handle large-scale workloads. It has more than 60 million active customers and has built a formidable ecosystem of partners, allowing it to provide a wider range of services and capabilities.

Google Cloud, by comparison, has only 25 million active users and is less well-known.

Second, AWS offers a broader range of pricing options. It can be deployed in either a pay-as-you-go or subscription model, allowing for a more tailored solution.

PRO TIP: There is no simple answer to this question as it depends on a number of factors, including the specific needs of your business. However, it is worth noting that Google Cloud has made significant progress in recent years and may well overtake AWS in the future.

Google Cloud, by contrast, is built on a pay-as-you-go model, with a higher upfront cost.

Third, AWS offers a wider range of services for data storage and compute. It offers both S3 storage and EC2 compute instances, as well as a range of managed services such as DynamoDB and SNS.

Google Cloud, on the other hand, only offers storage services through its GCP storage platform.

Overall, these differences may not be decisive in the long term. Amazon Web Services has built a strong platform and may be able to overtake Google Cloud in the future.

However, for now, Google Cloud is still the clear leader in the cloud computing space.
