Azure is overtaking AWS

In the second year of the pandemic, COVID-19 continued to drive cloud migration forward. That’s according to Flexera’s 2022 State of the Cloud Report. However, the expenses incurred were below the forecasts expected by companies.

Only 66 percent saw more cloud usage than planned. In the previous year, 90 percent assumed that the IT budget would be exceeded.

SMEs are an exception. Here, cloud usage has grown massively in the last year. 53 percent of small and medium-sized businesses are already spending more than $1.2 million on their cloud instances. In the previous year it was only 38 percent of SMEs. In the next twelve months, a total of 63 percent of the workloads and 62 percent of the data in SMBs are to be executed or stored in the public cloud.

As in previous years, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Service (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) are among the three leading cloud providers. However, Azure (77 percent) manages to overtake AWS (76 percent) for the first time. Microsoft’s cloud computing platform also overtakes AWS in the number of virtual machines.
