TOPICS: Storage, Cloud, Google

At Google I/O last week, the Silicon Valley giant announced Google Cloud Datastore, a fully managed offering for storing non-relational data.

It's based on Google's App Engine High Replication Datastore, which has been around since 2011 and now processes an eye-popping 4.5 trillion transactions per month—with 99.95 percent uptime, no less.

In a blog post this morning, the company decided to celebrate by dropping App Engines HRD and Cloud Datastore prices up to 25 percent.

For stored data in the Datastore, the new price will be $0.18 per gigabyte per month. That's down from $0.24.

For operations, write will cost $0.09 per 100,000 operations (down from $0.10), read will cost $0.06 (down from $0.07) and small will remain unchanged, at $0.01.

  • Cloud storage offer

    If you are looking for a Free Cloud Storage account, We can recommend 'Copy'. You can click on the link below to gain an extra 5GB on top of the 15GB that you get when you open a free 'copy' account.

    Start now with an extra 5GB (that's 15GB cloud storage right now) by cutting and pasting the link to the 'Copy' site below into your web browser:

    For promotion, 'Copy' has an incentive - As a bonus you also receive an extra 5GB whenever you refer someone else who opens up a 'copy' account. (you need to register for the free account and download the install package which is relatively unobtrusive and seems free of malware).
