Microsoft Hears Amazon Price Drop, Raises It An Azure Cut

A week after cloud-computing price cuts from Google and Amazon, Microsoft lowered the price of its own storage and compute offerings by up to 65%, Steven Martin, Microsoft Azure’s general manager, announced in a company blog post. The news comes in advance of Microsoft’s annual Build conference later this week.

That’s likely not the end of the price cutting. All three companies have a big incentive to gain as much traction as they can with big business customers, as it’s still early days in the cloud era.
