I agree with Andrew. Microsoft holds a *ver* strong card with Azure and having the same speed as AWS with new functionality. However, I think AWS is also moving strongly to PaaS with services like Redshift, SES, SQS and such.

Microsoft is the stealth success story in this space. Curious that Google has not done more with GAE to prevent MS's advance.
