Google Cuts Cloud VM Pricing up to 30%

Google announced a set of price cuts for its cloud services, saying its Google Cloud Platform is now 40% less expensive for many workloads.

Reduced prices are in effect for all Google Compute Engine Instance types.

Google also introduced a new class of preemptible virtual machines that delivers short-term capacity for a very low, fixed cost. Preemptible VMs are identical to regular VMs, except availability is subject to system supply and demand. Since we run Preemptible VMs on resources that would otherwise be idle, we can offer them at substantially reduced costs.
