2007: As the sea of business and scientific data rises, computing power turns into a strategic resource, a form of capital. "In a sense," says Yahoo Research Chief Prabhakar Raghavan, "there are only five computers on earth." He lists Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, IBM, and Amazon. "Few others can turn electricity into computing power with comparable efficiency."

arguably azure can be excluded as its not a CDN pillar but aws and azure run a lot of websites too.

@simon Thank you. I shared to my bosses because they want to move everything to cloud.
