Big and emerging played in cloud biz:
The big names in the cloud computing business are Amazon web services (AWS),Microsoft azure, Google cloud storage and Alibaba cloud with several other names these few are the big players that run the arena. However there will be a reshuffling of the top three public cloud providers in 2021, with China’s Alibaba Cloud displacing Google Cloud to take the No. 3 spot for revenue in the global public cloud infrastructure market. behind No.1 Amazon Web Services and Microsoft

Microsoft Azure Data Lake
Microsoft Azure is a collection of various cloud computing services, including remotely hosted and managed versions of proprietary Microsoft technologies, and open technologies, such as various Linux distributions deployable inside a virtual machine. Azure can be utilized at any scale, from a garage startup to a Fortune 500 company.
Microsoft’s competitor to AWS launched a bit later in 2010 but quickly grew to offer a full suite of tools and services, designed to allow organizations that work with large datasets to carry out all of their operations in the cloud.
Google Cloud Storage
Google’s cloud platform is built on the same technology that powers its own Big Data-driven services like Youtube and Google Search, with all the scalability and reliability that this implies. It also offers a number of storage and data lake-oriented services under the banner of Google Cloud Storage, designed to be scalable to handle exabytes of data.
Alibaba Cloud (formerly Aliyun) is not (yet) as popular in western nations as the “Big 3” of Google, AWS, and Microsoft, but it’s certainly a growing presence. As the leading Big Data cloud service provider in China, however, it has a huge userbase in Asia and provides the same range of analytics, security, and AI tools as the US-based platforms. It offers pay-as-you-go as well as monthly subscription models.
