AWS is 5x the Size of 14 Major Cloud Vendors Combined!

Learn about the benefits and drawbacks of microservices with best practices for your own architecture, brought to you in partnership with Iron.io.

The latest Gartner study puts the total amount of compute resources used by Amazon Web Services customers at a number five times greater than 14 other cloud venders combined!  And they've done this while spending less than Google and Microsoft.  Specifically the vendors are:

  1. Terremark
  2. Savvis
  3. CSC
  4. Dimension Data
  5. Rackspace
  6. Tier 3
  7. Virtustream
  8. Joyent
  9. Bluelock
  10. GoGrid
  11. SoftLayer
  12. OVH
  13. Fujitsu
  14. Dell


Although, there's a glaring omission in Garner's report (one of several reasons why their "Magic Quadrants" are mostly useless IMO).  Microsoft's Windows Azure is missing, and I bet their total deployments, given its popularity in the .NET community, are nothing to sneeze at.
