VPC is currently in limited beta and doesn't work with the S3 cloud storage service or any other parts of AWS. Skytap, the service that aims to help enterprise development and test teams work more efficiently (and test their code more often), announced that it has raised a $35 million funding round led by Insight Venture Partners. Utilize cost-effective solutions for storing and retrieving any amount of data, any time, anywhere. With Skytap, enterprises can re-create their production environments in the cloud to more effectively test their applications before they go live. The company says it will use the new funding to a€?fuel new levels of product innovation for enterprise-ready development and test environments,a€? and to expand its go-to-market capacity and bring more partners on board.
Skytap Environments as a Service remove the biggest constraints slowing development teams down.
Our solution removes the inefficiencies and constraints that companies have within the software development lifecycle. Amazon announced the preview availability of EC2 Container Services a€“ the new service for managing Docker containers that boosts Amazon Web Services support for hybrid cloud.
This bring the benefits of easy development management, portability between environments, lower risk in deployments, smoother maintenance and management of application components, and the ability for it all to work together. Google has extended its support for Docker containers with its new Google Container Engine powered by its own Kubernetes, announced just last week during the Google Cloud Platform Live event.
And, back in August, Microsoft announced its support for Kubernetes in managing Docker containers in Azure. According to the latest news, you need to wait just around 5 days before prices of cloud computing services will substantially drop.
On March 26 Google announced price cut for Google Compute Engine (by 32%)  and Google App Engine (by 30%). And the cost of Google's cloud storage was reduced by as much as 68% (up to $0,026 per month per 1 GB). In 24 hours, Amazon responded - reduced the price of EC2 virtual machines by 30-40%, and the cost of S3 data storage - by 60% (down to $0,024 per gigabyte). Microsoft cut Windows Azure prices so that they were either identical or slightly lower than Amazon's. These three providers (Amazon, Microsoft and Google) reduce the cloud pricing so often that other players (IBM, Oracle, Rackspace, HP) simply can't take part in this cloud arms race, and the open cloud platform OpenStack also can't get the considerable market share. So, if you once (for example, a year ago) calculated whether it was cost-effective to migrate your IT infrastructure to the cloud and decided that it was still expensive, then recalculate again.
Since tomorrow  Amazon S3 cloud storage pricing will decrease by 6-22 % (depending on the used space), and the cost of cloud server hard drives (Amazon EBS) will fall by 50%. And a month later Microsoft's cloud platform Windows Azure  will reduce its prices by 20% to keep them a little lower than Amazon's. So think once again, why buy an in-house server if the cost of the cloud tends to zero.2012.
On Monday, Google reduced prices for its Google Cloud Storage by over 20%, and today, in response, Amazon has reduced prices for its S3 storage by 25%.

The same story occured in March when Amazon lowered prices, and then Microsoft and Google aligned their pricing with Amazon. Because on the cloud platforms market the price is no longer a competitive advantage, but your pricing is higher than the competition - is't a big disadvantage. Some experts already doubt that Amazon and the contenders are earning something on selling gigabytes and gigahertzs. Like in case with the mobile market, the main task of cloud vendors - is to hook up large companies and SaaS-providers to their platforms, even if they should sell computing resources at a loss.2012. Humanoid robots - is just our assumption, but it's first idea, that comes to mind when looking at the new service Amazon Glacier. This is a solution for the long-term storage of archives and backups, which are needed for business very rare, or may be never used, but should be stored because of some state or corporate guidelines. But if you want to get any file - you need to order it first and wait 3-5 hours until it becomes available. Since May 1, it was adapted by RackSpace for its service Rackspace Cloud Files and last week HP launched the public beta of its HP Cloud platform, based on OpenStack. However, a week before the launch the trouble (common for open-source projects) occurred with OpenStack. Citrix, which has been one of the first participants in OpenStack, suddenly decided to grant its own cloud platform - CloudStack - to Apache Software Foundation. Citrix explained this decision by the slow OpenStack development and unwillingness of other parties to integrate with Amazon Web Services APIs.2012. Better than anybody in the world Amazon can build online stores, so the launch of the cloud app store for Amazon Web Services platform - is very logical move. The question may be only one: what's the point of creating software store for AWS, if AWS can host almost any software in the world? The fact is that AWS Marketplace sells not software but software images, specially created for the AWS (so-called AMI = Amazon Machine Images). Each image in addition to the software contains everything it needs to run (operating system, middleware). Thus, developers and IT administrators need less and less brains to start using Amazon's cloud platform.
You just need to create an account, go to the app store, add to cart needed software (from the operating system to CRM system) and that's all.2012.
Enterprise search engines (which are used mostly by large companies with large data stores) - have always been the prerogative of the large software vendors: SAP, Oracle, IBM, Open Text. Even though Amazon developers have some experience in search technologies (they somehow developed a search engine for the online store and even launched the own search engine A9). The problem is that existing enterprise search engines, including Google Enterprise Search, are designed for work in local networks, on local servers. According to various estimates, AWS runs on 450,000 servers and generates about $1 billion in revenue per year. The situation on the cloud (IaaS) platform market more and more reminds us the history of the desktop operating systems (Windows and Linux).

It's standards this week were supported by two more giants - IBM and Ericsson, that joined the OpenStack alliance.
On the other hand - proprietary but already very popular platform Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS gained it's popularity as a simple and open platform which allows to restore Linux or Windows server and scale it depending on the load. But as Amazon adds new features to AWS, it lockes clients and partners more and more in its golden cage.2011.
It's the service that allows you to rent computing resources for enterprise software or SaaS service hosting. In most cases, companies and SaaS providers would not want to handle these servers and other infrastructure themselves. Recently the company opened a budget-friendly service Amazon Micro Instances that is even more affordable than the traditional VPS hosting.
And today Amazon announced that starting November 1 this service will be available for free to new customers during the first year. One year is enough for a startup to make a decision - either the project is viable and it's worth to invest money in it, or it can be dropped.
For this year startup is given a free Linux-server with one processor and 613 MB of RAM, 10 GB disk space (Amazon EBS), 5 GB online storage (Amazon S3). Recall that Google App Engine also provides free cloud hosting for startups, but it has the significant limitations of available programming languages.2010. This amount seemed quite large for most small businesses using web-apps and SaaS startups and kept them from switching from a traditional hosting (or own servers) to the cloud technologies.
But today even the most budget conscious small businesses and SaaS startups got the good reason to join the Cloud Computing era, and Rackspace got a new headache - Amazon Micro Instances.2010. It sounds strange, but the IT director of Amazon (the leading cloud platfrom provider) Jennifer Boden is not a fan of cloud computing, like her boss, Jeff Bezos. Moreover, the company did not move in this direction until last year when Amazon VPC (Virtual Private Cloud), which allows to separate an enterprise cloud from the public cloud, appeared. Nevertheless, the process is started, and now Jennifer is speaking at the IT event with the presentation (see above) about how Amazon moves to Cloud Computing. Note that it this concerns not the Amazon's online store but the in-house enterprise apps, like email, financial software, IT management, HRM, etc.
Same as last year, right before the Microsoft developer conference PDC (where the company announces the new platform features), Amazon begins to act in order to capture developers' attention.
Last year Microsoft showed Windows Azure, and Amazon at the same time unveiled unveiled Windows based EC2 instances.
This year Microsoft is going to present the new cloud relational database Azure SQL, and here is Amazon's answer - Amazon RDS (Relational Database as a Service), the new service that provides ready-to-deploy scalable relational database MySQL.2009.
