When it comes to making a purchase, obviously getting a good deal out of a situation is one of the main issues that must be settled between buyer and seller. Basically, everyone wants the best value that money can offer, and Google knows this, too, which is why the technology giant intends to attract the enterprise crowd over to its Cloud Platform by slashing the existing price structure – and not just a minor drop in the pricing, but rather, a notable one.
Urs Hölzle, Senior Vice President, Technical Infrastructure, Google, shared, “Compared to other public cloud providers, Google Cloud Platform is now 40 percent less expensive for many workloads. Starting today, we are reducing prices of all Google Compute Engine Instance types as well as introducing a new class of preemptible virtual machines that delivers short-term capacity for a very low, fixed cost. When combined with our automatic discounts, per-minute billing, no penalties for changing machine types, and no need to enter into long-term fixed-price commitments, it’s easy to see why we’re leading the industry in price/performance.”
40% more affordable is definitely something to mull over for enterprise setups, don’t you think so? Google has promised to let its pricing structure be modeled after Moore’s Law, which is nothing but good news for the masses.
