As reported today in TechCrunch, Amazon and Google seem to be locked into a cloud storage price war. As is the case with such battles, cloud customers stand to win. Today, Google announced it’s latest cut, bringing Cloud Storage Pricing to a total markdown of 30%.
As the TechCrunch article states:
Today, in a somewhat surprising move, Google announced that it would reduce the price of Cloud Storage by yet another 10%, resulting in a total price reduction of over 30% once you include the earlier cut.
Here are the pricing tables for both companies, in case you care to do a comparison:
Google Cloud Storage:
Amazon S3 Standard Storage:
With multiple price reductions announced over a mere few weeks, the cost of cloud storage is at an unprecedented low.
While cloud computing is not for everyone, if you are considering a cloud storage solution, or a hybrid solution that combines cloud storage with storage in a local server, this may be a good time to consider embracing the cloud.
