Overview
Bluemix delivers virtual machines running in IBM Cloud data centers backed by a global private fiber network.
Google Compute Engine delivers virtual machines running in Googles data centers and worldwide fiber network. Compute Engines tooling and workflow support enable scaling from single instances to global, load-balanced cloud computing.
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web service that provides secure, resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier for developers. Amazon EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances to minutes, allowing you to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as your computing requirements change. Amazon EC2 changes the economics of computing by allowing you to pay only for capacity that you actually use.
