Here's How Much Cloud Storage Really Costs

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Cloud storage is increasingly getting cheaper, as companies like Amazon (AMZN), Google (GOOG), Rackspace (RAX), and Microsoft (MSFT) are all playing out pricing wars, trying to attract the most business.

TwinStrata has put together a list showing that Amazon Web Service (AWS) S3 offerings continue to top the list. At the top of the list is Amazon S3 Glacier, which costs just $0.01 per GB/month. Amazon's other offerings, Reduced Redundancy and S3 Standard, cost $0.068 and $0.085 per GB per month, respectively.

As consumers use more data, particularly on their smartphones and tablets, wireless providers have gotten into the cloud hosting game. Offerings from AT&T (T), via its Standard and Remote Replication products, cost 15 cents and 20 cents per GB per month, respectively.

Google, HP (HPQ), EVault, Microsoft and Softlayer, which is now owned by IBM, round out the list.
