The best cloud platforms
Hybrid and multi-cloud scenarios are becoming an integral part of corporate IT, observes Carlo Velten, CEO of the Kassel IT market research and consulting company Crisp Research. “There won’t be ‘one cloud’ in the future. That is why the mix of providers and providers is an increasingly important issue in companies.”
The analysts expect that there will be a mixture of different IT operating models and platforms for the foreseeable future. Currently, on-premise amenities and private clouds still have clear arguments for definite workloads and areas of responsibility.
So, the hybrid cloud is definitely not a dumpy midway step in expansion. Nevertheless, public cloud services are the engine of future IT development.
The competitive situation in the cloud market has changed in recent years. According to the augurs, the technical requirements of the providers with regard to virtual machines, storage solutions, and network connections are largely comparable today.
The once tough price war between IaaS providers has lost its significance. the Internet of Things and container services and to put together their own offer packages as quickly as possible.
Against this background, Crisp Research has analyzed the providers of “cloud platforms” are active in the online market. This includes both infrastructure-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service providers. Some players, especially the heavyweights in this market environment, offer both variants.
Many providers have always concentrated on cloud computing, especially Amazon Web Services, Profit Bricks, or Google. Others come from classic enterprise IT and have expanded their portfolio, not least through acquisitions.
Crisp Research includes IBM, Microsoft, and SAP in this group. There are also hosting providers such as OVH and 1 & 1 as well as telecommunications groups such as Vodafone and Telekom, who have also added cloud offers to their portfolio.
