Clearly the game is on — with Google doing its best to show that it will compete head-on for the hearts, minds and wallets of businesses (and other) customers. It’s playing catch up to AWS which is by far the leader in public cloud infrastructure.
According to an emailed Google statement:
This morning on the Google Enterprise Blog, the Cloud Platform team announced they are reducing the price of Google Cloud Storage by an additional 10%, resulting in a total price reduction of over 30% this week. We are very committed to delivering the best value in the marketplace to businesses and developers looking to operate in the cloud. This price reduction applies to all Cloud Storage regions and the new DRA Storage. For more information and a pricing chart, please see our blog post.
Said a Google spokeswoman: “In a nutshell, the prices are the lowest in the marketplace today and we’re committed to making sure devs and businesses get great value with us.”
I would like to say that’s it for the week, but it’s only Thursday and we haven’t heard from the Microsoft Azure folks yet, so stay tuned.
