Here's what [Decho vice president of product management Charles] Fitzgerald had to say on each of the big competitors in the cloud computing arena as well as a few startups:
"People look at Google and say: 'Oh, Google has built this great generic cloud infrastructure.' They haven't. They have built a great infrastructure totally optimized for search... You see this when you are trying to put Gmail on top of that infrastructure. It had operational issues. But the even bigger issue, is they have a cost issue. It is just inefficient."
