"These services are far from uniform," says Andrew Conry-Murray, editor of Network Computing. "Google has an impressive list of APIs. Rackspace's offering is based on OpenStack. Microsoft is new to IaaS, but hooks into its Azure PaaS offering are unique. Hopefully, this guide will help readers find the ideal fit for price, security and storage options."
