Cloud Price War Continues – Part 2

In the last week, we saw the cloud computing competition hit yet another new level in the race to zero!  By that, I mean the race to near-zero cost of computing.  Three big announcements last week:

  1. CISCO announced a 1 billion dollar investment into the IaaS cloud space to take on Amazon.  Of course, everyone is trying to take on the leader.
  2. Google announced huge price drops and the ability to combine its compute engine and app engine offering.  Also, challenging Amazon…
  3. Amazon counter-punched all comers with another price drop

These are exciting times for the cloud computing space!  Stay tuned as more heavy-weights continue to slug it out for leadership in the cloud!
