ProfitBricks, a cloud hosting infrastructure provider founded in 2010 by the co-founders of 1&1 Internet Web Hosting, has announced its cloud hosting price/performance guarantee. The company guarantees that any workload deployed on its IaaS cloud hosting platform will cost less than the same workload running at the same performance level on the IaaS platforms of Amazon, Google or Microsoft.
The new price/performance guarantee applies only with respect to the ProfitBricks IaaS on-demand cloud instances and the comparable on-demand IaaS cloud services offered by Amazon, Google, and Microsoft. Guarantee is based on the current publicly-listed prices offered to the general public for Amazon, Google and Microsoft.
If you can demonstrate to ProfitBricks‘ satisfaction, in ProfitBricks’ reasonable discretion, that Amazon, Google, or Microsoft offers regular prices to the public for comparable services, with the same performance level, that are lower than the price you are paying ProfitBricks, then ProfitBricks will credit you the difference in price from the date you notified ProfitBricks of the lower price and adjust the price going forward in accordance with this guarantee. All claims are subject to verification by ProfitBricks.
“Our goal is to make it easy to migrate from traditional servers to the cloud, which means giving our customers a clear, easy way to gauge how much performance costs,” said ProfitBricks CMO Andreas Gauger, former CEO of 1&1 Internet. “There is no learning curve when it comes to understanding our prices. It’s simple. We guarantee that ProfitBricks offers the best balance of price/performance of any cloud on the market.”
With offices in Berlin, Germany, San Antonio, Texas and Boston, Massachusetts, ProfitBricks was named one of the Coolest Cloud Infrastructure Vendors of 2015 by CRN and was also the recipient of two CODiE awards and a Frost & Sullivan cloud innovation award for 2014.
