Amazon S3 pricing changes – new tiered approach

October 9, 2008 at 7:15 pm Leave a comment

Amazon S3 appears to be the clear leader in providing storage-as-a-service to developers and firms. They continued to make their offer more compelling this week by announcing new tiered storage pricing. For larger firms (or small firms storing larger amounts of data), this may create further barriers to entry for upstarts like San Diego-based Nirvanix and the soon-to-be-launched Rackspace Cloud Storage Service.

Let’s keep our eyes on the performance – if Amazon can avoid any of the noticeable outages they suffered during the past year, it will be difficult to unseat them.

FYI – wish we could take credit for breaking this news, but TechCrunch beat us to it.
