re: Microsoft Answers Amazon With Azure Cloud Price Cuts
There is no doubt Amazon, Google and Microsoft are very good at marketing. Their prices are not low at all. However, many people just blindly believe so. Most people don't realize that they charge for storage space, download bytes and server requests. So the storage price is only one part of the total cost. In particular, they charge about the same price for data downloads. Considering they only offer infrastructure service, the price is much more expensive than, a leading cloud IT service provider that offers cloud-hosted File Server, FTP Server, Email Server, Web Server, Online Backup, Sharing and Collaboration services to SMBs.
