The latest marketing effort for Google Cloud is sending free Chromebooks to Microsoft Azure partners. Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure are cloud solutions by these companies, trying to gain market share in a market dominated by Amazon Web Services.
The laptop is intended to be used for a Google Hangout, which will feature Google Cloud representative pitching on the advantages of Google’s platform. Along with this, the packaging includes testimonials from companies like Spotify and Evernote.
Cloud computing is a market segment where Amazon leads way ahead of both Microsoft and Azure. It is interesting to see Google directly wooing Azure customers. For Chromies, the use of Chromebook in this whole scheme is a tad more interesting to watch!
