Cloud Spectator Compares Pricing Structure of IaaS Providers; Amazon EC2 Not Necessarily Top Cost Saver

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- Cloud Spectator, a leading independent cloud computing analyst firm that provides research and data on Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), today unveiled its newest research report, Infrastructure as a Service Market Metrics Report: Industry Pricing Comparison. The company conducted extensive cost analysis among 20 IaaS providers for different server configurations. The data found that Amazon EC2 did not score as the most cost-effective option for companies looking at short-term projects.

The Pricing Comparison report provides companies with a guide to understand competitor pricing, helping enterprises to make more informed decisions about their cloud computing needs. Other key findings from the report include:

  • Rackspace's prices for larger instances have decreased significantly following its implementation of OpenStack.
  • Storm on Demand makes you pre-pay for the month then credits anything unused back to the user's credit card or account.
  • Amazon and CloudSigma offer significant long-term discounts for its users compared to an industry average.
  • GoGrid has simplified its discount model and cut prices by one third across all cloud server sizes.

"The cloud computing industry is changing constantly. As such, IaaS providers are readjusting and repackaging their services to fit the needs of their customers," said Kenny Li, founder and CEO at Cloud Spectator. "With all the back and forth, it becomes a sliding scale for price structures. Our goal with the Pricing Comparison is to not only give the industry a pricing framework, but to also create a competitive matrix that the providers themselves can adopt when putting together their own pricing structure. It's been long overdue in the market and the providers are thankful for it."

The Pricing Comparison analyzed the following providers: 1&1 Dynamic Cloud Server, Amazon EC2, AT&T Cloud Architect, CloudSigma, eApps, ElasticHosts, GoGrid, Hosting.com Enterprise Cloud, IBM SmartCloud Enterprise, Internap AgileCLOUD, Joyent, Liquid Web Storm on Demand, OpSource Enterprise Cloud, PEER 1 Hosting's Zunicore, ProfitBricks, Rackspace Cloud, Savvis, Symphony VPDC, SoftLayer CloudLayer, Terremark vCloud Express, and Windows Azure. Price comparisons are broken down into hourly, monthly, and annual pricing to gain an accurate perspective on each provider's pricing strategies and advantages based on project timeline. The Pricing Comparison does not account for performance; rather, it assumes equivalent performance among providers.
