Microsoft cuts the price of Azure and Office 365

Microsoft has cut the price of Windows Azure by 12%, and Office 365 by 20%, as competition in the cloud computing market increases.

Microsoft hopes the price cut will lure users away from rival cloud services such as Google.

Microsoft is also cutting the price of its Office 365 product. The company claims it is passing on savings due to an uptake in customers. By running its datacentres more efficiently, Microsoft says it is passing on a 20% saving to Office 365 customers. Hmmmm, I wonder whether that’s the case or whether they are losing business and have cut prices to try and save some competitive situations. You be the judge.
