DevOps and the Alternative Cloud provides insight into the capabilities and priorities developers expect from cloud infrastructure providers. In a market where hyperscalers dominate, a small band of alternative cloud providers — which includes DigitalOcean, Hetzner, Linode, and OVHcloud — is having an outsized impact.
Accelerated Strategies Group (ASG) researched alternative cloud infrastructure providers and their increasing role as alternatives or additive options to the large cloud providers such as AWS, Google, and Azure. Blair Lyon, VP Cloud Experience at Linode, joins Mitch Ashley to discuss this recent research commissioned by Linode. Often thought of as the developers’ choice for cloud infrastructure, the ASG research showed fascinating findings of who selects and approves cloud providers and companies’ plans for and an additional cloud provider to their vendor portfolio.
