Cloud Cost Reduction Firm Compares AWS, Google Cloud Pricing
ParkMyCloud, a company specializing in cloud cost reduction services for its customers, published a post that compares pricing for Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) offerings.
Along with pricing comparisons, the company examined terminology and billing differences between the two platforms. The post is a rewrite/update of a 2017 post, including cloud pricing data as of this month.
The post examines areas such as "AWS Reserved Instances vs GCP Committed Use" and "AWS vs. GCP Compute Sizing," but makes no firm conclusions in favor of either platform.
"When comparing AWS vs. Google Cloud pricing, AWS EC2 on-demand pricing may on the surface appear to be more competitive than GCP pricing for comparable compute engines," the company said. "However, when you examine specific workloads and factor in Google’s approach to charging for CPU/Hr time and their use of Sustained Use Discounts, GCP may actually be less expensive."
