Well aware that money is one of the biggest reasons several companies are still hesitant to switch over to Google, Big G has released a calculator that can determine your actual savings, should you ever decide to migrate.
Test Drive the Cloud
Google's go Google cloud calculator is designed to give potential users a sense of the benefits of going Google in an easy-to-understand way.

That is, they axed the internal use of Windows.
We're not sure what moves like these are doing for Google's user base, but this calculator is sure to inspire at least a switch or two. Check it out for yourself, here.
