Amazon (NSDQ:AMZN) and IBM (NYSE:IBM) are the kings of cloud computing, according to a new report released by research and analysis firm BTC Logic.
According to the quarterly report from BTC Logic, Amazon and IBM beat out the others in seven categories - cloud foundations, cloud infrastructure, cloud network services, cloud platforms, cloud applications, cloud security and cloud management - to be deemed "cloud champions." BTC Logic found that Amazon and IBM each ranked within the top five in four separate categories. Amazon received high marksin cloud infrastructure, network services, platform and management while IBM ranked well for cloud infrasturcture, platform, security and management.
Meanwhile, BTC Logic ranked a host of other companies "cloud heavyweights" based on their rankings. While they ranked high, the heavyweights didn't capture top spots in as many categories as Amazon and IBM. The heavyweights include Cisco Systems, Citrix, EMC, Google, Level 3, Microsoft, Oracle, Red Hat, Salesforce.com, Symantec and VMware, BTC Logic's report indicated.
But despite their ranking has heavyweights, cloud computing mainstays Google (NSDQ:GOOG) and Microsoft (NSDQ:MSFT), which are also among the most vocal vendors when it comes to cloud computing, failed to take the top spot in any of the seven categories presented in the report. Read the full story.

ran just as fast on my virtual machine.”
