These days, there is virtually no company that can do without the public cloud. According to Gartner, around 500 billion dollars were spent on the public cloud in 2022 alone. UMB offers a wide range of services for the leading public cloud solutions from AWS, Google, and Microsoft. Our cloud experts can help you choose the right cloud, implement it smartly, and operate it reliably.
The public cloud has undergone an almost unimaginable development in recent years. On the one hand, the volume of data in the cloud has multiplied, on the other hand, useful services for just about every conceivable need can be found in the cloud. This makes it increasingly difficult to choose the right cloud provider.
UMB is an independent company and offers you - in addition to its own UMB Cloud - leading public cloud solutions from Microsoft, Google, and AWS. We are completely vendor-neutral and advise you solely according to your needs.
We will support you throughout the entire cloud lifecycle - from the selection and implementation to the operation of the appropriate solution. Regardless of whether this involves IaaS, PaaS, or cloud native functions.

Public cloud offers from UMB
Determining the cloud that fits your needs can only be done after a thorough analysis by our cloud experts. Even though the differences are not huge, there are some distinguishing features:
Amazon Web Services (AWS)
Amazon Web Services, or AWS for short, is the largest public cloud provider in the world. AWS shines with over 300 cloud services in 27 regions worldwide - since fall 2022 also in Switzerland. As the largest public cloud provider, AWS has perhaps the best access to the latest processor, network, and storage technologies. With AWS Lambda, Amazon probably also has the simplest serverless computing solution. Amazon is also a leading provider in the area of artificial intelligence (AI).
Microsoft Azure Cloud
The Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform includes more than 200 cloud services in over 50 regions worldwide, including Switzerland. Customers can develop, run, and manage applications - in multiple clouds, locally or at the edge. Microsoft invests over one billion US dollars annually in the security of its solutions and has built one of the world's largest cyber defense centers over the last few years. Azure has a very strong presence in hybrid clouds and is also bringing innovations to their own data centers. The Azure platform is suitable for customers who pursue an IT strategy based on the Microsoft ecosystem or at least maintain a strong focus on it.
Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
Google has been late in targeting B2B customers and the enterprise cloud offering. The GCP portfolio is considered particularly strong in services for managed container infrastructure, data analytics or even artificial intelligence (AI). GCP also decouples pricing for CPU and memory usage on instances, which can be very attractive in terms of price, depending on requirements.
