Google cloud computing services have a reputation as being developer-centric, but the deep-pocketed company hit the accelerator in 2014 by bolstering Compute Engine, its infrastructure-as-a-service offering, and making earnest attempts to lure enterprise customers away from AWS and Microsoft Azure.
Google Cloud Platform impressed enterprises, earning Honorable Mention in the Modern Infrastructure Impact Awards cloud computing provider category.
"Google probably wins the 'most improved' title," said one judge.
One voter noted that "Google makes great cloud products at competitive prices and communicates well with customers."
Another called out Google's enterprise capabilities, saying, "It is rare that companies provide tools that can scale at the Google level."
