Amazon and Google are getting into a cloud price war
Google is dropping prices on its Cloud Storage service, by about 10 percent. If you're getting a sense of déjà vu, it's because Google already dropped prices earlier this week, by 20 percent at the time.What happened in the meantime though was Amazon also dropping prices on its own S3 cloud storage service.
"We are committed to delivering the best value in the marketplace to businesses and developers looking to operate in the cloud," Google wrote.
"That’s why today we are reducing the price of Google Cloud Storage by an additional 10%, resulting in a total price reduction of over 30%. This price reduction applies to all Cloud Storage regions and the new DRA Storage," it announced.
This should mean that Google has the lowest prices once again, but comparing cloud offerings is tricky since companies don't offer the exact same thing, even for something as straightforward as storage.
