> Google succeeds if it is anybody but AWS proprietary solutions.

Maybe? But don't forget Azure is bigger than Google's cloud services so they would also benefit from people not using AWS proprietary solutions and there are many smaller companies also in this space.

I don't think Kubernetes necessarily helps good at all in the market place itself. Maybe with talent and admiration but almost everyone offers Kubernetes deployments now.




Is azure really bigger? Because if you ask azure, they claim to be bigger than AWS as well. They are obviously lumping office 360 and all of their cloud software.


Yes, Azure is universally recognized as being far larger than Google's cloud offering (at least twice the size). Google is trailing badly behind AWS and Azure, it's why Diane Greene was forced to step down. There is an endless parade of research and prominent articles pointing this out:

It is by revenue


And Amazon lumps WorkDocs and WorkMail and Chime into their AWS line item as well. Its the same thing. Except Amazon's just sucks, so they don't generate nearly as much revenue.
