Why? Mostly because it makes too much sense. The Google infrastructure investment combined with phenomenal scale yields some of the lowest cost compute and storage in the industry. They can sell compute and storage at considerably above their costs and yet still be offering substantial cost reductions to smaller services. That’s if they chose to charge for it.Microsoft is clearly staying busy on the architecture front as well, as Hamilton  and new Microsoft colleague Greg Linden  have been contributing some informative blog posts on the topic in recent weeks.
