Amazon and Microsoft both reported their Q1 earnings on Thu 4/23/15 which resulted in both companies experiencing a jump in their stock price. Certainly some of this stock price jump can be attributed to each companies respective performance in the cloud.
For the first time ever, Amazon broke out their AWS (Amazon Web Service) revenue results. According to the report, AWS is now a $5B business (with 2014 numbers). Not only that, it was one of the very few businesses divisions actually profitable.
Microsoft also got a big boost from their cloud business. Azure experienced a phenomenal 106% revenue growth rate. Microsoft claims their cloud division generated over $6.3B annual revenue.
