God bless RightScale. It did the math to calculate how Google’s new price cuts compare with current Amazon Web Services pricing so I didn’t have to.
And here are the results first comparing new Google pricing to one-year AWS Reserved Instances (RIs).
And here’s the how Google stacks up against the even cheaper AWS three-year RIs.
RightScale, based in Santa Barbara, Calif., has to stay on top of this stuff because it offers tools and consoles that help companies monitor and manage multicloud deployments and to forecast costs. More details are available on the Rightscale blog.
