+ - Google Announces Compute Engine - At Last An Alternative to Amazon AWS

The announcement includes the line:
"...allows Google Compute Engine to give you 50% more compute for your money than with other leading cloud providers"
And we know who "other leading cloud providers" are! A full price table is available and from this, for example, a single core image with 3.75GB and 420Gbytes of storage is $0.145 per hour, which is a lot more power than the same rate would buy at AWS.
