Three New Pricing Editions For Google Cloud
In addition to the launch of Flex Agreements, Google Cloud also unveiled today it will be creating three new pricing editions as part of its cloud portfolio: Standard, Enterprise, and Enterprise Plus.
The higher-end Enterprise Plus tier will offer compute, storage, networking and analytics services with high availability, multi-region support, regional failover and disaster recovery, advanced security, and a broad range of regulatory compliance support.
Google Cloud’s new Enterprise pricing tier will include a broad range of features designed for customers with workloads that demand a high level of scalability, flexibility, and reliability.
The Standard pricing tier will offer cost-efficient and easy-to-use managed services that include all essential capabilities such as autoscaling to meet the core workload requirements of customers.
“This new commercial packaging model will give customers more choice and flexibility to optimize their cloud spend,” said Google Cloud’s Ducourty and Matz.
Google’s three new Standard, Enterprise, and Enterprise Plus pricing editions will be rolled out over the next few quarters.
