ParkMyCloud, a company that specializes in cloud cost reduction services, published a post comparing pricing for Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
The company also compared pricing and examined differences in billing between the two platforms. This post is a rewrite/update from a 2017 post. It also includes cloud pricing data as of the current month.
This post examines areas like “AWS Reserved Incstances vs GCP Compmitted Use” and “AWS vs. GCP Compute Sizing,” but does not make any firm conclusions for either platform.
The company stated that AWS EC2 pricing for comparable compute engines may appear more competitive than GCP pricing when comparing AWS pricing to Google Cloud pricing. GCP may actually be cheaper if you look at specific workloads and consider Google’s pricing for CPU/Hr and their use Sustained Use Discounts.
