Google will soon take on Amazon, Rackspace, and more with its new Compute Engine infrastructure-as-a-service, a new product it introduced today at its Google I/O conference.
With Google’s incredible stash of data centers around the world, it makes sense to use some of those data centers to host and store sites and data. It could be an incredibly disruptive product to Amazon Web Services, the reigning king of public cloud infrastructure. Other players like Rackspace, SoftLayer, and Microsoft’s Azure will also be paying close attention as Google reveals more details about the upcoming service.
The company did not disclose pricing details, but we have no doubt it will be competitive with Amazon.
