Google Cloud Platform offers customer friendly pricing up to 50% less than other cloud providers.


Customer-Friendly Pricing Innovation

Our infrastructure innovation enables us to offer the best price/performance. Our pricing is customer-friendly. It’s simpler and discounts don’t require lock-in contracts. We provide per-minute billing and automatic discounts with increased usage. Custom Machine Types can save you money by matching whatever machine you want, for your workload. You no longer have to overprovision to fit your vendor’s rate card, potentially saving you up to 50% depending on your workload. If you have a job that runs just for a few minutes but are forced to pay for an hour, or if you have a job that needs 20 Gbytes but you’re forced to buy 32, or if you have unused VMs for which you signed a contract a few months ago, that’s some serious savings right there when you run on Cloud Platform.

“ Google’s flexible cost model allows us to not have to think or plan. ”

— Cathy Daw VP at Datastax
