The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the
major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and

infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are
embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.
In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo, moderated by Ashar Baig, Research
Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of Technology at
