re: Amazon Cuts Prices Again
I've long felt that Amazon's cloud pricing options are highly innovative. To be able to order a micro instance of a virtual database for 2.5 cents is pretty cool. But these aren't deep cuts ("up to 14%"), and careful cost analysis must be done before you know for sure if Amazon's cloud is cheaper than do-it-yourself IT systems. For more, see my column, "Expect To Save Millions In The Cloud? Prove it."
