Disclaimer: I am notoriously anti google and have tons of reasons to post these links. We push on hybrid cloud/on prem deep learning with our own deep learning framework that competes with the commerical sides of tensorflow, mxnet,..

Sample of search results:

Even their docs:

Marketing content/training:

vs (1 link I found with googling) for AWS:

If we push the amazon equivalent though, run this: aws mxnet

Every cloud vendor has their own framework. Microsoft has CNTK on azure as well.

Google doesn't want a repeat of what happened with map reduce and hadoop:

That being said, as a user: Just take it. You benefit from vendors competing. Google would love to pay you to use their tools.
