"Value" Not "Price" Critical in Making Accurate Calculations of Cloud Spend
The Top Ten European Cloud Service Providers Report is the most comprehensive study of its kind analyzing the price-performance of ten public IaaS vendors with data centers across Europe. Testing was completed for four different VM sizes, measuring vCPU, memory performance, and block storage performance for the providers in the report.
When making cloud purchase decisions, performance is a critical yet often overlooked component of the cloud, and can have a substantial impact on annual operating costs. Based on the findings of the report, no consistent correlation between price and performance was found across the industry.
