Just days after Amazon Web Services (AWS) slashed prices for its cloud computing services, Microsoft has done the same. Azure Store now costs 12 percent less, and the price for the Azure extra small compute instance has dropped by half. In addition, storage customers who purchase six months in advance should see price decreases “up to 14%.”
