Google will lower prices on cloud services as the search giant gears up to take on Amazon.com, International Business Machines and Microsoft in the fast-growing market of internet services for corporations.

In a blog post, Google outlined key features and pricing for " Compute Engine," part of a broader service that vies with Amazon AWS in providing storage and computing power to corporate clients as in-house datacentres are gradually phased out.

It will lower prices 10% on most standard services, and 60% on high-end data storage. Google said the service was now "generally available," signaling that it meets internal standards and is ready for a wider rollout.

It is "embarking on a significant multi-billion infrastructure-as-a-service opportunity," analyst Colin Sebastian of RW Baird wrote. "Google is positioned to become the next large player in cloud services, with a robust platform of application, platform and infrastructure services, competing for an increasing share of the IT spending pie."
