The 2010 cloud computing winner

The 2010 cloud computing winner

Who was the 2010 cloud computing winner? It’s a subjective topic. And you’re really comparing apples to oranges. There are SaaS, PaaS and IaaS offerings, all serving different customer needs. Some vendors are established, while others are only just getting started. And of-course, people tend to declare a technology they are familiar with as a winner.

To identify a winning technology it’s usually best to go straight to the market and see what people are actually using. Winning technologies get adopted, new jobs get created and specialized skills get requested for.

Below is the job trend for the top 3 cloud vendors – Amazon, Microsoft and Google. While being non-scientific, this approach does raise some interesting points. Demand for Amazon cloud services is booming, both for compute and storage capabilities. There are almost triple the jobs requesting Amazon EC2 skills to those asking for Microsoft Azure capabilities. And Google AppEngine is surprisingly in little demand. So, is it fair to declare Amazon the 2010 cloud computing winner?
