Cloud Product Mapping – AWS vs Azure vs GCP

More and more companies start to adopt multi-cloud strategy nowadays. This article provides a category-by-category mapping for cloud products/services from AWS, Azure and GCP(Google Cloud) with reference links pointing directly to these CSP’s product home page.

A few notes before using this mapping list:

  • All categories and products/services are in the alphabetical order
  • Some products will appear in multiple categories
  • We’ll periodically update this list as “the cloud is always moving”
  • We’ll also gradually add detailed comparison articles under each category
