Some departments in your company without cloud computing resources to implement high-
performance task, right? Because Google has just format a plan to serve these needs. Google
launches virtual machine preempt, a new cloud service allows the use of computing resources
at low cost. The proposal is consistent with the workload has low priority and may, therefore,
The search giant has introduced a cloud computing platform that costs less than the new
default setting is 70% on Compute Engine. Virtual machines can preempt do cheaper, about $
0.01 for each case / hour. Most reasonable cost for each virtual machine can now range from
$ 0.03 per hour, up to $ 0.11 an hour or more. The problem is the virtual machine may stop
working when you need it or face the peak period.
The company argued, however, that the offer (in beta) served very well the different
computing tasks. The company was cited, for example, a significant number of jobs that can
be distributed among multiple virtual machines. However, it would be a bad idea to apply this
method to analyze the process, modeling and simulation requires high computing power and
To provide these services, Google will use the free space in its data center. At that time is a
peak in demand and Google need more resources, virtual machines join preempt the virtual
machine calculator is repeated and disrupt the current process. Users receive a notification
about the time 30 seconds, which should be enough to save your work. Google said preempt
virtual machine can not run for more than 24 consecutive hours.
According to Google’s article, “all kind of computer is at least 10 minutes. For example, if
you run your example in 2 minutes, you will be charged for 10 minutes of use. After 10
minutes, the case is calculated by the increase of 1 minute, rounded to the nearest minute. for
example, a case that will be live for 12 minutes 11:25 minutes of use. ”
According to Google, there are many that use cloud computing and scalable pricing model to
calculate quite deep, but short-term assignments. It includes video encoding, reproduction of
visual effects and are based on large amounts of information, such as data analysis,
simulation, and genes.
The solution is quite similar to that of Spot Instances offered by Amazon Web Services
(AWS). The other AWS model price. Google has a fixed cost while competitors prices vary
according to the needs.
The market leader AWS cloud often reduce their prices. The company is facing tough
competition with Google and Microsoft to maintain its leading position in the clouds and try
to attract more developers to its solutions at a lower price, hardware services and more
advanced technology. Microsoft, on the other hand, progressed enough to be a serious threat
to Amazon’s dominance in the market.
