Do you remember when we used to use brand names for things? “Hand me a Kleenex or can you Xerox a copy of such and such.” Even more recently, “Hold on, let me Google that”
At one point, Amazon cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) seemed to be going in that direction as well.
It might be safe to say that we’re probably not going to be using Amazon in that sense now because of all the competition that its been getting recently.
Rackspace, for instance, seems to be ramping up according to Beth Pariseau in a TechTarget post: “Rackspace launches cloud computing performance surge against AWS”
She states, “Rackspace’s Infrastructure as a Service customers hope the company’s new data centers will boost cloud computing performance and allow more workloads to move to the cloud.”
Why not check out the competition here on IT Central Station? Check out what real users are saying, head-to-head about Rackspace vs AWS.
You might want to reach out to a real user who contributed a review on the “Yelp for Enterprise Tech” as referred to by the Wall Street Journal on IT Central Station.
Here’s two ways you can do that:
- Comment on the review and get into a dialogue of Q and A with the reviewer or even someone else who commented.
- Inbox the reviewer directly and ask specific questions about their implementation or yours.
