Submission + - Nonstop cloud computing price war: Amazon, Google both drop rates again (networkworld.com)

Brandon Butler writes: Just as industry watchers have predicted, the race to the bottom for cloud computing prices continues.

On Thursday, while announcing that the beta tag has been removed from the Google Compute Engine (GCE) cloud service, Google also reduced prices for the on-demand virtual machines by 4% across the board.

Not to be outdone, about 12 hours later — almost as if it was waiting for a competitor to make such a move — Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced a 26% drop in prices for its Windows virtual machines (VMs) on demand. Take that Google, AWS seemingly said.
