The term alternative cloud provider is more nuanced than it seems. One of the first to coin the term, Liam Eagle, Research Director at 451 Research, defines an alternative provider as any public cloud provider that isn’t a hyperscaler; for instance, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure. And that’s where the nuance comes in because not every alternative provider can be a credible alternative to what the hyperscalers offer.
Whether it's to support remote operations or simply make their businesses more agile, many companies have recognized the growing need to migrate to the cloud. But the challenge now is choosing the right provider.
