As with every edition, our team looked into many different aspects of sever- al cloud providers. We analyzed their pros and cons, discussed our experi- ences, and decided for the winner in several categories.
Interestingly, we found out that none of the vendors we tested would not be recommendable – each one has spe- cific strengths and (of course) poten- tial for improvements. We were espe- cially impressed by the performance of smaller and / or not-so-well-known cloud vendors, such as SysEleven or Noris Cloud: Often they offer com- parable 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 win- ners. And don’t forget to check out our detailed comparison tables on the next pages for more details!
As you can see, each one of our vendors has his strengths. From our perspective there is no right or wrong considering cloud vendors nowadays, there is only a matter of needs and their fulfillment by a ven- dor. The best thing is: Nowadays, multi-cloud-approaches can be im- plemented as easy as never before, allowing for a the-right-tool-for-the- job-approach and preventing from vendor lock-ins.
And these are good news for 2019!
