In Pictures: Top 10 Amazon cloud challengers

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

Company: Rackspace

Why they have a shot: Rackspace has a long track record in the managed services arena and it has anchored its transition to the cloud on the OpenStack open source IaaS which it co-developed, released into the wild and now hopes to champion as the most widely supported cloud platform in the ISV ecosystem. The company offers public, hybrid and managed cloud services, including highly elastic servers available on-demand, high performance MySQL databases, global monitoring for web infrastructure, file level, encrypted, compressed, automated backups, cloud block storage, and software defined networking for increased security.

High-profile customer: Major League Gaming

LIFEBOOK UH574

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

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
