Google Updates Compute Engine

Google has announced some changes to the Google Compute Engine that bring the infrastructure as a service (IaaS) more in line with offerings from competitors, including Amazon. Specifically, Google has added 36 more types of servers to its cloud. “At launch we offered four basic [instance types],” said Google’s Barak Regev. “If you aggregate [the 36 new instances] into brackets, you’ll see they are touching the high-memory and high-CPU instances [but] the one that is most notable is the diskless file configuration.”

In addition, Google’s cloud is launching a preview of “durable reduced availability” storage and “persistent disk snapshotting.” The company has also lowered prices for the four main instances of Google Compute Engine by five percent.
