Hello, everybody. And welcome to the introductions. A cloud security. My name is Nicholas Moy. So, as you can see here and this charts were comparing eight of us as your Google Cloud IBM, the M Wear Oracle, Alibaba These air A lot of big name companies in the tech industry.
Eight of us is owned by Amazon. Azure is owned by Microsoft. Google Cloud is Google
IBM self explanatory VM where Oracle Alibaba,
you get the picture. But as you can see here, I think the main thing that we should compare
are the percentages. So
as you can see, the light blue is 2018 The Dark Blues 2017. And basically what we're comparing is the enterprise public Cloud adoption.
Based on year,
we're in 2019 so the statistics haven't been populated just yet. Towards the end of the year, we'll get to see what it really looks like. But we can definitely see, according to this chart that eight of us has been leading in the cloud space for at least the last two years, and I can confidently say that they've been leading for a lot longer,
as we can see. Just last year, alone. They lead in 68% and followed shortly by Azure, which was 58%.
Google Cloud, 19
IBM and VM, where Oracle and Alibaba all under 20%. But yeah, we're able to see that eight of us and Azure basically running head to head
on dominating the space. Now. Why is that? Well, eight of us is really popular when it comes to development of applications. When it comes to AP eyes, things like that and Azure is owned by Microsoft. Which, as you probably know, Microsoft is a very popular
enterprise software company. They create windows,
and so naturally, Windows is gonna play very nicely when it comes to Azure Cloud. And so they're able to dominate a lot of the space A lot of companies are adopting to azure just because they're in all Windows environment.
Now. Personally, I use eight of us a lot. I work in a software development space, so it's very easy, very natural, to build things within eight of us butts. Azure definitely has an attractive selling point, and that's the reason why these two are so popular. So when it comes to
learning about cloud vendors, one thing that you want to learn about, especially when you're learning about clouds. Security is first of all, which Claude Vendor is gonna be most valuable to my organization.
If your organization is primarily running off of a Microsoft backbone, maybe have Windows servers running. Ah, you have Windows 10 on all your work stations. You don't run Mac of any sorts. Or maybe you have minimal Lennox instances running within your on premise data center. Well, then, azure might be more of, ah,
of a fitting play for for a cloud provider for you.
But if you are looking to build applications or that sorts, you can use eight of us now. Not to mention that each of these cloud providers do play nicely with ah windows. They do play nicely with developments, but they play to their strengths. And really, when you are
shopping around for a cloud vendor,
you want to make sure that you are getting the most ideal platform
for your organization and that you're ultimately ah, lining with your business strategy. Your business schools
