Forbes magazine has run an interesting analysis of the relative positions of the major cloud suppliers, with Microsoft top, and Amazon and IBM close behind.

With total revenue of $76.3 billion, Microsoft ($18.6 billion), Amazon ($17.5 billion) and IBM ($17.0 billion) together took 2017 cloud revenue of $53.1 billion, meanwhile Google it had revenues of over $1B in Q4 revenue. But most surprising is that IBM outsold both Microsoft and Amazon in the cloud in Q4.

Salesforce.com Oracle, SAP and Google together created revenue of $13 billion.
