Cloud Provider Tests: Picking the Winner – Category Compute

In every edition of “the cloud report” we have a wide range of different evaluations. We test the provision of different cloud vendors in many categories. There are evaluations from the documented datas from all cloud providers and also active tests. The cloud experts from Cloudical set up scenarios and evaluate all datas that can be collected. They act and test like normal customers of the cloud provider.



The tests are all the same for every vendor, also the set ups stay equal. So, you get a wide range of comparable datas and results. The different categories help you to get a clear overview about the provisions, but also deep insights.

If you are looking for the proper vendor for your business or your project, this is your independent survey. You get information about speed, throughput, scalability, availability, used tools, and of course costs. Everything is clearly comparable in the presented tables:

Based on the results we also pick the winner of every category in every quarterly edition.

This time the winners were picked by Karsten Samaschke, CEO of Cloudical.


The Winner of the Category Compute is: AWS

Why:  AWS offers the best performance this time around and a complete feature-set.


In section Price in this category the winner is: Google

Why: Although Google does not offer the best performance everywhere (despite being close), the vendor offers the best prices – and combined with a good performance, this makes for our price winner.    

 Please, take a look into the tables and let us know, if you find another winner!
