Amazon, IBM Battle for Cloud Supremacy in China

The cloud computing heavyweights are turning their sights on the Chinese market.


On the same day, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and IBM have both put out announcements related to cloud computing services for China. In a blog post, AWS said that it will be adding a region in Beijing. Services such as EC2, S3, virtual private cloud and elastic load balancing will be available.

IBM countered with a press release announcing a partnership with 21Vianet, China's largest carrier-neutral data center provider. The agreement will allow the company to offer private cloud services and infrastructure to Chinese enterprises and developers.

Of course, both companies will also be competing with Microsoft Windows Azure, which also offers cloud services in the region.
