Google ups the ante against Amazon's cloud service

Extensive upgrades to Google's infrastructure-as-a-service cloud computing technology heighten competition with market leader Amazon Web Services.

Google has added 36 new types of server to its rentable cloud infrastructure. 

The additions to Google Compute Engine, the company's infrastructure-as-a-service technology, were announced by Google on Monday.

"At launch we offered four basic [instance types]," Barak Regev, head of Google's Cloud Platform in EMEA, told ZDNet. "If you aggregate [the 36 new instances] into brackets, you'll see they are touching the high-memory and high-CPU instances [but] the one that is most notable is the diskless file configuration."
