This week’s earning announcements were welcome DevOps news as Google shared that its Google Cloud generated $2.7 billion in revenue last quarter — a 52% year-over-year growth for the business. (Last quarter it reported $2.6 billion in revenue, a 53% year-over-year increase.) Microsoft’s earnings also reflected a general expectation for increased cloud computing demand as more companies enable remote work. It reported third-quarter results of $35 billion in revenue, with its commercial cloud business (which consists of Azure and its other cloud offerings) accounting for $13.3 billion in sales, a 39% year-over-year increase.
Continuing to dominate the market, Amazon announced that revenue from AWS crossed the $10 billion mark ($10.22 billion to be exact) for the first time in the first quarter, representing a 33% year-over-year growth rate.
