Nirvanix launches competitor to S3

Nirvanix which provides a competitive service to Amazon’s S3 launched yesterday. On the plus side they have a price point in the same ballpark as S3 (USD$ 0.18 per GB stored and USD$ 0.18 per GB of banwidth in or out).  However they have no compute environment ala EC2 so any manipulation of the data involves a significant bandwidth cost overhead for Nirvanix while manipulation of data on EC2 is essentially free.

Still good news to see a competitor on the horizon, this can only be a could thing for companies like ourselves who want to eliminate our dependence on a single vendor.
