Cloud Wars: AWS vs. Azure vs. Google Cloud Platform (“GCP”)

Cloud Wars: AWS vs. Azure vs. Google Cloud Platform (“GCP”)

It’s all about the cloud. Given that Amazon’s AWS business unit and Microsoft’s Azure business unit are the two finalists for the Pentagon’s $10 billion “JEDI” contract, we thought it timely to publish AWS, Azure and GCP revenues for the 12-month period ending 12/31/18. As per usual, see the video and image content “below the fold.”

Amazon (AWS): $25.7 billion. Amazon reports AWS figures in its SEC filings. The $25.7 billion figure represents 47% year-over-year growth.

Microsoft (Azure): $6.5 billion. This figure is our estimate based upon certain public disclosures made by Microsoft. We estimate that Azure revenues grew 82% year-over-year.

Google (GCP): $4.5 billion. This figure is our estimate based upon certain public disclosures made by Google. We estimate that GCP revenues grew 32% year-over-year.
