The solution is more expensive than other competitors and does not require a license.

The solution offers different pricing models. They charge in different ways - either per CPU hour or usage based on a machine type. When it comes to pricing, Google may be two cents cheaper, whoever, the difference makes it a bit of a wash. It might mean an extra five dollars or 20 dollars a month. The difference isn't enough to be too noticeable. All of the main competitors charge very competitive pricing. That said, when it comes to the CPUs, that's a Google proprietary technology. When we do machine learning, we do prefer working in Google Cloud, as we have the option to expand all the way to CPU and AWS doesn't have that option. It's a GPU-only system. Amazon's also pushing you towards their own machine learning tool, SageMaker, which we don't want to use. We want to use our own tool.
