Comparison of cloud services

Yogesh Girikumar
Here is a very simple comparison between some of the services exposed by three popular cloud platforms, Amazon AWSOpenStack, and Rackspace Cloud. 


Please do note that this chart is not an exhaustive list of services offered by any provider. It is for illustrative purposes only. This is just a comparison of  some of the ADVERTISED SERVICE offerings and not of all the features or capabilities. The table illustrates only what are being OFFERED as SERVICES, right now. 

As always, things change with time. OpenStack, the popular open source cloud framework that has recently gained much attention and momentum has been adding a lot of features to its arsenal lately; The network-connectivity-as-a-service (NaaS?) component, Quantum being the latest addition; And the volume service component is being renamed Cinder and a lot of development effort is being dedicated to that as a seperate project.
