Performance / Cost Combination Comparison for GCE and AWS

    Joe Masters Emison published another study comparing the relative costs of different types of GCE and AWS machines. The main conclusions of my research in my opinion:

    • Machine performance in both GCE zones is the same for all types of VM
    • The best combination of price and performance for f1-micro (but it is subject to strong changes in performance). g1-small and n1-standard-1 are very close in price per unit of performance to f1-micro
    • If you need single-processor machines on demand, then GCE is much cheaper than AWS
