When it comes to the public cloud market, the only real competition is between Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure. Since AWS came into this market well ahead of Microsoft, it currently enjoys around 50% of the public cloud infrastructure market. Microsoft Azure only has around 20% of the market and it has a long way to go to beat AWS. Google Cloud platform is at No.3 with a single digit market share and growth rate slower than AWS and Azure.
