5 Best Cloud computing providers Alternative to A.W.S.



Cloud computing is one of the major services searched by many business organizations to have their websites hosted and run their business.

When we consider to host our website along with storage, we search for a hosting company or a cloud computing company to host our site, the first word we get to our minds is Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Yes, absolutely it is the company currently ruling the world of Cloud computing services, and they indeed provide some of the finest services.

But, how big it may be, there exist many problems besides all benefits, may all the services they provide is not something you may not configure as a beginner, or you may feel the charges they impose are very high, and also managing your cloud with AWS requires deeper technical prowess or a dedicated workforce.

The high charges make it very difficult for beginner companies and organizations, to configure and host their site over A.W.S.

So, being unable to understand or unable to afford A.W.S many people try to search for the best alternatives. Similarly, I have researched for the best alternatives for A.W.S, which are simple and easy to configure, and made up a list as below.
