Microsoft Azure dethrones AWS as preferred cloud service provider | #microsoft | #hacking | #cybersecurity

Microsoft Azure’s adoption rate has increased from 73% in 2021 to 77% in 2022 compared to AWS, which saw a drop: in 2021, it recorded an adoption rate of 77% decreasing to 76% in 2022. This is the first time Microsoft Azure has surpassed AWS after the former has held the second spot for more than 11 years, according to data presented by BanklessTimes.

“More enterprises are now turning to Microsoft Azure at the expense of AWS. For instance, many on-premises workloads shifted to cloud-based solutions during the COVID-19 pandemic. This, in turn, accelerated the popularity and growth of Microsoft Azure, thus surpassing AWS in multiple key categories,” explains BanklessTimes CEO Jonathan Merry.

For how long will Microsoft Azure stay at the top?
BanklessTimes analysts claim they have predicted Azure surpassing AWS. It was only a matter of time, they say, given that Azure has surpassed AWS in several categories such as the defence department’s joint enterprise defence infrastructure contract.

Despite Azure being the most preferred option, the Flexera 2022 State of the Cloud Report, cited by the analysts, says otherwise.

AWS is still the top main cloud provider; it has 41% significant workload for SMBs compared to 31% on Azure.

AWS also leads in terms of public cloud IaaS market share at 47% while Azure only has 14%.

Analysts say it may not clear how long Azure will remain on top. AWS still dominates the public cloud IaaS market and also hosts more significant workloads.

The public cloud trends
Only 26% of enterprises confessed they rely on cloud-managed service providers to manage their public cloud platforms, according to BanklessTimes data. However, more than 57% of them outsource their public cloud assignments.

The analysis also shows that 89% of the enterprises prefer multi-cloud configurations (public and private) for their workloads. Almost all of them (96%) have at least one public cloud. This trend shows that most people use the public cloud more than any other option.
