The Clouds in UAE: Amazon Not Mentioned

February 13, 2020

Here’s the big reveal in the write up titled “Microsoft Sees Room for Growth Opportunities for All Cloud Providers in UAE.”

The US technology giant [Microsoft] offers three main clouds – Azure, Microsoft Office 365 and Dynamics 365.

Three clouds. Well, Google has 10 chat apps. So much for efficiency, federation, and distributed architectures.

Other factoids in the write up, in DarkCyber’s opinion, are:

  • The growth for Microsoft and “all” is PaaS or Platform as a Service.
  • Competition is good, presumably among members of the oligopoly players in the “cloud”
  • Alibaba has a cloud data center in the UAE
  • The intelligent edge is a reality. What’s an intelligent edge? Hey, no need to explain this bit of verbal frippery.
  • There are more than 1,000 technologies on Azure. Can anyone list these? DarkCyber cannot.

The write up does not mention the other outfit near Microsoft. But Amazon has some operations in the UAE, Bahrain, and other countries in the area as well.

The write up toots Microsoft’s tuba and Oracle’s flute.

Yep, useful marketing packaged as “real” analysis. But three “main clouds”?
