According to sources, Google claims that its product is 50% cheaper than competing products. It was very much expected that the company was going to launch this service, to fight back against offerings from Microsoft, Amazon, Rackspace and others.
Google claimed that it has spent the last 10 years lowering the price of computing, and wanted to ‘pass on’ those savings to developers.
