Re: Where the Google Cloud belongs
I agree. AWS is a big player, but it is mostly for big players only. Deploying application on AWS is complicated and time consuming, unless you are using a managed hosting like Cloudways. Also, AWS is quite expensive. On the other hand, GCE is cheaper than AWS and is relatively easy, but still requires you to have sysadmin experience. I would not say Google is losing the cloud hosting race, but AWS is definitely ahead of them.
