Amazon Cloud Luster Fading? Look Closer

Some skeptics say Amazon's cloud dominance wears thin. I say Amazon's destiny in the cloud is in its own hands -- and you can't say that for IBM, Google, or Microsoft.

Re: AWS
anon,

Of all the companies that are chasing Amazon right now-Only MSFT,IBM & GOOGLE have really deep pockets to take on AMZN head to head on the pricing front effectively.

Even there also(Look at the Massive Job Losses MSFT had to take recently) there is a clear limit how much they will bear.

Eventually if Things are'nt quite working out they will Backout and let AMZN Feast on more and more consumers!

Regards

Ashish.

AWS is king right now but the other companies chasing have huge pockets. Once some of the mid level providers like Datapipe, Hosting.com and Layered Tech get acquired it could get real interesting!
