Amazon Lowers S3 Storage Pricing
Last month Amazon announced that 82 billion objects are stored on the S3 cloud computing storage service.
Today Amazon has made two announcements regarding pricing for the S3 storage service. First, Amazon has setup a dedicated “sales” site to help convince business users to switch to Amazon cloud computing services. It’s called the AWS Economics Center and has lots of charts and graphs.
The other change Amazon has made is regarding the pricing for S3. Pricing for the largest users — those using multi-petabytes will see a 15% reduction on their usage fees. The discount is for the US and EU regions. The EU region is also receiving a discount for overall S3 usage at any level and EC2 computing usage as well.
The other change applies to all customers through June 30, 2010, “data Transfer into AWS will be free of charge from now through June 30th, 2010, making it even easier for customers to get their data into AWS.”
Looks like Amazon is on a mission to acquire customers.
