But unfortunately, it makes all the difference.” —Joanna Hoffman, part of the original Macintosh team, head of marketing at General Magic

Despite being a strong advocate for AWS, this is where I will say Google completely outshines Amazon.

Google's approach to pricing is, "do it as efficiently and quickly as possible, and we'll make sure that's the cheapest option".

AWS's approach is more, "help us do capacity planning and we'll let you get a price break for it.".

Google applies bulk discounts after the fact, AWS makes you ask for them ahead of time.
