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:
- 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.
- Google announced huge price drops and the ability to combine its compute engine and app engine offering. Also, challenging Amazon…
- 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!
