With revenues projected to reach $246.8b in 2017 (up 18% on the year before), the public cloud is big business. The biggest IaaS providers, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, all offering deals to attract customers. But figuring out which service is right for you isn’t going to be simple.

Cloud services have a huge range of options. One provider offers more database services, another more security tools, and still another, a wider range of storage options. How do you make an ‘apples with apples’ comparison between them?

You don’t. In helping customer connect their cloud datacenters to Cato Cloud and in our own efforts to select a cloud platform for Cato, we’ve spent a fair amount of time sorting between cloud options. Rather than focussing on features and options, our team hit on the idea of conducting a scenario analysis.
