The search engine’s Big Query data analysis engine reduces by 85%.
Google has cut prices for its cloud computing service in efforts to lure cloud consumers away from competitors such as Amazon and Microsoft.
Google’s Cloud Storage will now cost 2.6 cents per gb in the US, which is 68% less for the majority of consumers, while its Compute Engine services will now be priced 32% less across all sizes, regions and classes.
Google SVP Urs Holzle said that the company has focused a lot on productivity and wants to make it easier to build and test in the cloud.
"And on top of all of that, we’re making it more affordable than it’s ever been before, reintroducing Moore’s Law to the cloud: the cost of virtualised hardware should fall in line with the cost of the underlying real hardware," Holzle added.
"And you automatically get discounts for sustained use with no long-term contracts, no lock-in, and no upfront costs, so you get the best price and the best performance without needing a PhD in Finance."
Google also launched managed virtual machines, expanded compute engine operating system support and BigQuery in efforts to make developers more productive in the cloud.
"Managed Virtual Machines give you the freedom to combine flexible VMs with the auto-management of App Engine," Holzle said.
"BigQuery allows big data analysis to just work, at any scale."
