Cloud Service comparison
As per wikipedia.org cloud Technology exist seance 1998 , but now its becoming popular comparing before and as per my experience with cloud i am expecting soon it will capture more then 90 % world Server market , because it will reduce data center management then electricity consumption data center temperature system and local IT support to mange this service , will be removed via cloud Technology .
you or company which need this server service just need pay number of hours they need service and cloud admin request compare and suggest what product is best for his need and rest will manage by cloud provider .
find below the list of Cloud service providers .

Google Cloud Platform
Google Cloud Platform is a cloud computing platform by Google that offers hosting on the same supporting infrastructure that Google uses internally for end-user products like Google Search and YouTube. Cloud Platform provides developer products to build a range of programs from simple websites to complex applications.Google Cloud Platform is a part of a suite of enterprise solutions from Google for Work and provides a set of modular cloud-based services with a host of development tools. For example, hosting and computing, cloud storage, data storage, translations APIs and prediction APIs.
- Google App Engine is a Platform as a Service for sandboxed web applications. App Engine offers automatic scaling with resources increased automatically to handle server load.
- Google Compute Engine is the Infrastructure as a Service component of the Google Cloud Platform that enables users to launch virtual machines (VMs) on demand.
- Google Container Engine makes it easy to run Docker containers on Google Cloud Platform.
- Google Cloud Storage is an online storage service for files.
- Google Cloud Bigtable is a fast, fully managed, massively scalable NoSQL database service that's ideal for web, mobile, and Internet of Things applications requiring terabytes to petabytes of data.
- Google Cloud Dataproc is a managed Apache Spark and Apache Hadoop service designed for fast, easy, and cost-effective Spark and Hadoop
- Google Cloud Datastore is a fully managed, highly available NoSQL data storage for non-relational data that includes a REST API.
- Google Cloud SQL is a fully managed MySQL database that lives in the Google Cloud infrastructure.
- Google Load Balancing balances traffic between Compute Engine instances, using either HTTP or Network (TCP/UDP)
- Google Interconnect connects your network to Google’s directly or via your carrier or VPN
- Google Cloud DNS is a DNS service hosted in the Google Cloud infrastructure.
- Google BigQuery is a data analysis tool that uses SQL-like queries to process big datasets in seconds.
- Google Dataflow enables reliable execution for large scale data processing scenarios such as Extract, Transform, Load (ETL), analytics, real-time computation, and process orchestration.
- Google Cloud Pub/Sub connects your services with reliable, many-to-many, asynchronous messaging hosted on Google's infrastructure.
- Google Translate API is a way to create multilingual apps and translate text into other languages programmatically. Thousands of language pairs are available.
- Google Prediction API uses Google’s machine learning algorithms to analyze data and predict future outcomes using a familiar RESTful interface.
- Google Cloud Monitoring gains insight into the performance and availability of your cloud-powered applications.
- Google Cloud Logging manages all your log data for Compute Engine and App Engine to investigate and debug system issues, gain operational and business insights, and meet security and compliance needs.
- Google Cloud Deployment Manager allows developers to easily design, share, deploy and manage complex Cloud Platform solutions using a simple, declarative templates.
Amazon Web Services (AWS)
Amazon Web Services (AWS), is a collection of cloud computing services that make up the on-demand computing platform offered by Amazon.com. These services operate from 12 geographical regions across the world. The most central and best-known of these services arguably include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, also known as "EC2", and Amazon Simple Storage Service, also known as "S3". AWS now has more than 70 services that range from compute, storage, networking, database, analytics, application services, deployment, management and mobile. Amazon markets AWS as a service to provide large computing capacity quicker and cheaper than a client company building an actual physical server farm.
AWS is located in 12 geographical "regions": US East (Northern Virginia), where the majority of AWS servers are based, US West (northern California), US West (Oregon), Brazil (São Paulo), Europe (Ireland and Germany), Southeast Asia (Singapore), East Asia (Tokyo, Seoul, Beijing) and Australia (Sydney). There is also a "GovCloud", based in the Northwestern United States, provided for U.S. government customers, complementing existing government agencies already using the US East Region. AWS has announced another 5 Regions (and 11 Availability Zones) in Canada, China, India, Ohio, and the United Kingdom coming online throughout the next year. Each Region is wholly contained within a single country and all of its data and services stay within the designated Region.
Each Region has multiple "Availability Zones", which are distinct data centers providing AWS services. Availability Zones are isolated from each other to prevent outages from spreading between Zones. Several services operate across Availability Zones (e.g., S3, DynamoDB) while others can be configured to replicate across Zones to spread demand and avoid downtime from failures. As of December 2014, Amazon Web Services operated an estimated 1.4 Million servers across 28 availability zones.
The global network of AWS Edge locations consists of 54 points of presence worldwide, including locations in the United States, Europe, Asia, Australia and South America.In 2014, AWS committed to achieving 100% renewable energy usage. As part of this effort in the United States, AWS commissioned with Community Energy of Virginia a solar farm coming online in 2016 to support the US East region. In January 2015, AWS announced it has teamed with Pattern Development to construct and operate Amazon Wind Farm Fowler Ridge. In July 2015, AWS announced that it has contracted with Iberdrola Renewables, LLC to construct and operate Amazon Wind Farm US East. In November 2015, AWS announced that it has contracted with EDP Renewables to construct and operate Amazon Wind Farm US Central. AWS is also working with Tesla Motors to apply battery storage technology to address some power needs in the US West (Northern California) region.

Starting today, you can create Amazon EBS Provisioned IOPS volumes that can store up to 16 TB, and process up to 20,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS). You can also create Amazon EBS General Purpose (SSD) volumes that can store up to 16 TB, and process up to 10,000 IOPS. These volumes are designed for five 9s of availability and up to 320 megabytes per second of throughput when attached to EBS optimized instances.
These performance improvements make it even easier to run applications requiring high performance or high amounts of storage, such as large transactional databases, big data analytics, and log processing systems. Now you can run large-scale, high performance workloads on a single volume, without needing to stripe together several smaller volumes.Larger and faster volumes are available now in all commercial AWS regions and in AWS GovCloud (US). To learn more please see the Amazon EBS details page.
