Google Challenges Microsoft and Amazon in Matters of Cloud Computing

Google has come on the scene with a bang. It is currently challenging such giants as Microsoft and Amazon in matters having to do with cloud computing.

Google is indeed the big daddy of search engine companies. And it has the whole world virtually wrapped around its finger. But now it is aiming for the moon in its favorite moon-shot style of goal-directed behavior. It plans on selling cloud computing services to individuals and businesses. 

Google announces on Monday via official blog: "Today, Google Compute Engine is Generally Available (GA), offering virtual machines that are performant, scalable, reliable, and offer industry-leading security features like encryption of data at rest. Compute Engine is available with 24/7 support and a 99.95% monthly SLA for your mission-critical workloads. We are also introducing several new features and lower prices for persistent disks and popular compute instances."

These may range from small time companies to the largest multinationals. It seems like the corporate world is about to be hit by a bolt from the blue. This is part of the current moves being made by giants such as Amazon, IBM and Microsoft to start thinking about cloud computing on a serious level. The sales of supercomputers via the cloud networks will benefit all sorts of business setups.

SnapChat is a classic example of a service that spurned Facebook’s lucrative offer due to the support it was already getting from Google. With companies as small as SnapChat getting a lot accomplished through the services of giants such as Google, it seems the future is a very bright time of plenty. 

Every entrepreneur will just need a cloud computing system and he or she is good to go.  Amazon’s cloud services too have a huge clientele. Meanwhile, 3M employs Microsoft’s cloud service. This is a new sort of experience for businesses and the business-minded. It is truly unlike anything seen before in the history of technology.
