With new plan, Google makes cloud data storage more predictable
The ability to pay as you go is one of the big selling points for cloud services, doing away with overpaying for servers or enterprise software licenses that may end up underused. But the flipside is that cloud services costs such as data storage can be unpredictable budget-busters.Google LLC today introduced a new pricing plan for its Cloud Storage service that aims to address that issue. Its new Storage Growth Plan for Cloud Storage offers a way to avoid the swings in cost, usually upward, when a company suddenly needs to store or access an unexpected amount of data.It works like this: An organization commits to spend at least $10,000 a month on Cloud Storage every month for a year and the monthly amount will remain steady for the year. Even if the customer adds more data than the spending commitment covers, it won’t be charged extra for that year.But at the end of the 12 months, it’s time to pay the piper. Here’s where there are two choices. For one, the customer can commit to another 12 months at the peak usage amount, in which case if that peak usage is within 30 percent of the original commitment, the previous year’s overage is free. If it’s more than 30 percent, the customer must repay the remainder over the next year.
