Amazon, Microsoft, and Google manage the public landscape of the cloud by providing flexible, safest, and reliable services of the cloud. Their respective cloud platforms are Azure, AWS, and GCP, which give customers a high range of storage, computing, and networking possibilities.
Google Cloud Platform (GCP) sometimes seems like the 3rd wheel amongst the Biggest 3 public cloud providers. It has made a smaller splash in the public cloud computing space than its two biggest competitors, Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure, which dwarf GCP in cloud market share, and it was barely a contender for the JEDI contract.
Yet Google Cloud Platform is growing faster than Azure and AWS. It needs to have something working for it that these different cloud providers don’t. Let’s estimate out what that is by looking at five things that differentiate GCP from AWS and Azure and how tactics and strategy may shape the public cloud computing landscape going forward of GCP.

Several differentiators help in explaining the growing market share of GCP relative to Azure and AWS. Some reflect actual mechanical differences between Google Cloud Platform and their competitors. Others are rooted in observed differences that may not be prostrated in actuality, but the distinction doesn’t always matter for companies vying to compare public cloud providers in an extremely complex landscape.
