Re: playing both sides Not putting all the eggs in one basket could be one reason. Another reason could be to keep both AWS and Google’s in check. Knowing they are competing none of them will rise their offers to Disney too high. Otherwise Disney could decide to keep only one of them. Now that is smart.

Re: playing both sides Yes, very interesting how Disney choses both AWS and Google for services. Not putting all their eggs in one basket probably is a good thing and keeps "friendships" going with both while providing a bit of competition between them to give Disney a bit of special service and pricing advantages over time as well.

Re: playing both sides Joe very interesting perspective I hadn't thought of it that way but often times the inventor needs a little finesse to perfect their invention! Obviously, when Jobs took over the reins of Apple his vision elevated its design and its technology but in its struggling days, the analogy was probably very true!

Re: playing both sides @maryam: I once heard it put (well, read it put) that Apple had essentially become "a low cost R&D center" for Microsoft years ago.

Apple has since evolved a great deal, but it's hard to see how that's wrong in many respects.

Re: Cloud Wars > The NFL has been quietly doing this advanced anayltics thing for a while.

...except with head injuries, apparently. :/

Re: playing both sides Joe absolutely technology is now existing in an atmosphere where you must interact with your competitors to succeed Microsoft and Apple are a prime example and Amazon and Apple interoperability is key or a company and its hardware will not get the adoption they need to succeed.

Re: Cloud Wars The NFL has been quietly doing this advanced anayltics thing for a while. It's almost like IoT, except instead of a thing it is acutally a player.

Re: playing both sides @mhh: There's so much competitive incest in the tech industry anyway that it kind of doesn't matter. It's common to have two tech giants partnered with each other on one project and suing each other related to another.

Re: Cloud Wars @ Ariella I completely understand that many go with the leader but I have been burned by that decision myself. Sometimes the leader does not provide the solution that is needed and it causes other issues or the flexibility is lacking. It would be interesting to know the driving factors for Disney and who else they considered.

Re: Cloud Wars AWS certainly seems to be coming out as the king of the hill right now, with Disney and other major wins. But AWS will need to keep innovating and keep all of the data secure to keeep that position, as other tech companies have found.
