Re: When "extra scaffolding" results in extra charges
I wouldn't bet against Google either but if I were buying in to the service now and I had the option to pay for an acceptable guaranteed level of service I think I'd go ahead and pay that premium.  While I don't think the first couple of months will result in a flood of new users I would want that hedge of protection and the peace of mind it brings.

Re: Amazon EBS < Google VS AWS - IMO the cloud war of 2014
 the GCP (Google Compute Platform) team managed to clearly identify their direct competition, the AWS cloud. Consequently, they realized that they also need to invest in their IaaS offering. With a great deal of research, they quickly focused their attention on cloud lock-in. They presented out-of-the-box tools that import large chunks of data and "surprisingly" do actually ease the one-way data transfer process from Amazon S3 and Google Cloud Storage. Moreover, the Google cloud team learned that granularity of cloud resources is a key in the cloud and presented the 'charge per minute' of the their compute which is definitely a game changer. They mastered AWS' weaknesses of AWS and presented replication between regions, high performance disks with excellent persistence and will undoubtedly have more to come.
