ProfitBricks Becomes First IaaS Provider to Offer a Price/Performance Guarantee

IaaS Provider Continues Its Campaign to Make It Painless to Move to the Cloud

SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwired - Mar 25, 2015) - ProfitBricks, the provider of painless cloud infrastructure, today announced the cloud industry's first price/performance guarantee. In its bid to remain the price/performance leader in the cloud, ProfitBricks guarantees that any workload deployed on its IaaS cloud will cost less than the same workload running at the same performance level on the IaaS platforms of Amazon, Google or Microsoft. 

"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. "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."

ProfitBricks was the first IaaS cloud to offer minute-based billing and already boasts one of the simplest pricing models in the industry. Its online calculator enables customers to configure the cloud exactly as they want it, then predict their cost on an hourly or monthly basis. 

"When we migrated to ProfitBricks from Amazon, our costs fell by 50 percent instantly. We saved money everywhere; on servers and storage, and because their performance is better and more consistent, we are able to serve our users better in peak times. ProfitBricks' pricing is also much more transparent and predictable. We pay for exactly the resources we require rather than being forced to commit to more than what our current architecture calls for," said David Chen, VP of Engineering at

The new price/performance guarantee applies only with respect to the ProfitBricks IaaS on-demand instances and the comparable on-demand IaaS 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.
