As part of the on-going and aggressive price competitiveness of the Windows Azure platform the Storage Services (Queues, Table and BLOB storage) have all had their monthly price-per-GB fee reduced.
With effect from today (Thursday 8th March), Azure Storage is now charged at £0.0758 per GB per month (it was previously £0.0849/GB/month).
The ‘Extra Small’ instance, primarily used for development, QA, testing and really small load sites and applications has also seen a price cut, now being charged at just 1/6th of a small instance hour price – i.e. < £0.02 per hour!!! Great news for prototypes, demo sites and low-load apps.
