In Pictures: Top 10 Amazon cloud challengers

Here are 10 companies and why they have a shot at challenging Amazon.

Company: Terremark (a Verizon company)

Why they have a shot: In 2011, Verizon bought big into the cloud with its $1.4 billion purchase of Terremark, a leader in VMware-virtualized public IaaS cloud offerings. The brand has grown to include a Private Edition that offers single tenant public cloud; Managed Edition (formerly the Verizon public cloud offering); Express Edition (a pay by the VM public offering); and, Public Sector (a federal community cloud.) Verizon has embraced open standards like Rackspace did with OpenStack, but backs a competing open source cloud scheme, CloudStack.

High-profile customer: Quest Information Systems

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
