As with every edition, we are testing several cloud vendors and look into many different aspects of their offerings. This time we have tested AWS, Microsoft Azure, the Google Cloud, the IBM Cloud, the Open Telekom Cloud and OVH. We analyze their pros and cons, discuss our experiences, and decide for the winner in all categories.
The pattern we’ve already seen several times, continues this time as well: You should choose your own favorite based on your preferences, since all the tested cloud providers have their specific strengths and room for improvements.
We are especially impressed by the performance of smaller and / or not so-well-known cloud vendors, such as Open Telekom Cloud. Often, they offer comparable performance and sometimes even more options than their bigger competitors, combined with more personal support and very reasonable pricing. That being said, let’s look into the winners of some categories. And don’t forget to check out our detailed comparison tables on the next pages for more details!
We will revise the categories and add more tests during the next months. If you miss an important topic or question, we would be delighted to hear from you!
