Google Compute Engine ranked #1 in price-performance by independent benchmarking firm
Earlier this year, independent benchmarking firm Cloud Spectator tested the overall price-performance, VM performance, and block storage performance of four major cloud service providers:
Google Compute Engine, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and IBM SoftLayer.
The result is a rare apples-to-apples comparison among major CSPs, whose distinct pricing models often makes them difficult to compare. Download the complete report for more on the wide variance in cloud performance between these familiar vendors.
Cloud Spectator’s price-performance calculation, the CloudSpecs Score™, provides information on how much performance the user receives for each unit of cost. The CloudSpecs Score™ is an indexed, comparable score ranging from 0-100 indicative of value based on a combination of cost and performance.
