Microsoft Azure Still Closing the Gap In Horse Race Vs. AWS

Microsoft Azure continues to narrow Amazon Web Services’ lead for cloud adoption among the IT professionals polled.

Overall Azure adoption increased to 52 percent from 45 percent last year, while AWS adoption was relatively flat at 61 percent.

That puts Azure adoption at 85 percent of AWS adoption, up from 70 percent last year, according to the survey.

“We’re looking at what percentage of respondents are using that cloud,” Weins said. “They may be running different numbers of workloads and different spend on those clouds. AWS has the lead, and AWS does have larger number of workloads…but the gap is narrowing.”

Survey respondents said they’re running applications on a combination of 3.4 public and private clouds, and they’re experimenting with 1.5 more clouds.

Google Cloud remained at No. 3, with an adoption rate that increased to 19 percent from 18 percent. Its use escalates among more mature cloud users, according to the survey, which found that 9 percent of beginning cloud users employed Google Cloud, compared to 24 percent of advanced cloud users.

“It’s not that they’re displacing AWS,” Weins said. “They typically bring Google in as an additional cloud option.”

VMware Cloud, in its second year of availability, moved ahead of IBM Cloud for a fourth-place adoption rate of 12 percent, a 50 percent jump from last year’s survey.

“The number of workloads is probably still small in those cases, but that was stronger adoption than we expected,” said Weins, who expected VMware adoption’s rate to be closer to flat.
