Cloud Services Mapping For AWS, Azure, GCP ,OCI, IBM and Alibaba provider

This blog post is one of that kind that took much time and consume so much energy, to complete this post it took me around ten days to make sure that I will cover most of the available services and make it readable for people, Be sure the services can change while you are reading this post ; if you have any comments,or add something to this post, please send me an email – using contact us page or by comments below.

I am writing this post to share a different cloud providers services and the comparison between each one of them, this will show various naming services for each one of them.

Earlier we used to store our data to H.D.D or USB flash, Cloud Computing services have replaced such hard drive technology. Cloud Computing service is nothing but providing services like Storage, Databases, Servers, networking, and software through the Internet.

Cloud Computing is moving so fast, in 2020 the cloud now is more mature, going multi-cloud, and likely to become more focused on vertical and a sales ground war as the leading vendors battle for market share.

Notes :

  • GCP : Google Cloud Provider
  • OCI :- oracle cloud infrastructure
  • None : not meaning the services is not available necessarily by cloud provider but i didn’t look deeper into this or i didn’t use it before.
