AWS, WordPress, Windows Azure, Clouds, and More… (UPDATED)

A few weeks ago I published a comparison between hosting a WordPress Blog in Windows Azure vs. Amazon Web Services (AWS).  A major new feature at AWS has made the price shift even FURTHER into the Amazon’s Favor.  The release of micro-instances now makes it even cheaper, even on a pay as  you go setup.

The basic price difference is now about $100+ a month on Windows Azure and about $5-10 a month on AWS.  If you’re as wowed by getting the awesomeness that is cloud computing featuresets and technology as I am for a measly $5-10 a month go check it out yourself.
