It’s business software against software infrastructure and developer tools. To help your plan of attack on this crowded battlefield, we reviewed the entire Amazon Web Services Marketplace (as of January 2016) – a staggering 4,017 solutions in three categories and 25 sub-categories in all – and whittled down the offerings to ones that are rated above three stars and have at least three reviews. The Game of Clouds map is meant to bring you the best available solutions in one easy place.
