Cloud Solutions Architect

 

Building for the cloud requires navigating a whole arena of new challenges.  From virtual networking & security, to autoscaling & performance.  It all changes.  But with the attraction of on-demand billing, plus the resilience & high availability promise, no one can ignore it.


Google Cloud

Google’s cloud offering is getting better everyday.  From BigQuery to cloud functions, virtual networking to users & roles.  You get block based & object based storage options too.  What’s more as firms look at multi-cloud, they want some of their assets to be outside of Amazon’s walled garden.


Amazon Web Services

The 100 pound gorilla in the room, Amazon’s cloud is bigger than the four closest competitors.  New services offerings come out almost daily, and the teams are iterating to make existing products better and cheaper everyday.  Hard to argue with this.


Azure Cloud

Microsoft is playing catchup, but they have a lot of money to pour into their cloud.  They’re the competitor uniquely positioned to give Amazon an honest fight.  What’s more they’re throwing credits at customers left and right.  Who can argue with *free*?


WebTask

What to dispense with a full cloud offering and just deploy code into the cloud?  Webtask can provide an interesting alternative to some of the more full featured clouds above.


Heroku 

As a well known platform as a service provider, Heroku has expanded it’s offering to include more than just Ruby applications.  From Nodejs to Java, PHP to Python it’s all here now.  Heroku will dramatically simplify applications, by doing a lot of the architecting for you.  This can be good because like database services, they do one thing well.  But when you need to customize, you may find yourself looking to migrate to a more full featured cloud.  You’ll get a lot of mileage in the meantime though!
