AWS and Azure Pushing The Pace

Gartner Magic Quadrant for Infrastructure as a Service Cloud
During the past few years, Amazon Web Services has been the dominant player in the cloud infrastructure space, with very little in the way of significant competition. However, a quick spin around the interwebs has shown that status is starting to face some competition. At JHC we’ve been deploying solutions on AWS – from small scale to large scale – for more than four years. During that time, we’ve also kept an eye on Microsoft Azure, a platform JHC principals considered a few years ago for a key project.

As Microsoft moves rapidly forward in its cloud efforts, it’s becoming a bigger player in the space, and certainly a strong alternative to industry-leading AWS. Just recently, in fact, a customer requested that JHC use Azure to host its new global web site and we were happy to oblige. JHC is a Microsoft Certified Partner and Microsoft has always been a key point in our solutions, AWS or otherwise. We use Microsoft products internally and for our clients, hosting solutions for SharePoint 2007, 2010, and 2013 on AWS. We also have a hybrid Office 365 and AWS solution that also works well for our customers.

It all puts us in a great position as the latest Gartner Magic Quadrant report for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service came out, positioning both AWS and Azure in the Leaders quadrant. We’re thrilled at the continued success of both and look forward to leveraging AWS and Azure infrastructure to provide innovative and secure solutions for ourselves and our clients moving forward.
