Test Results 1/2020

And the winners are …

As with every edition, we are testing several cloud vendors and look into many different aspects of their offerings. We analyzed their pros and cons, discussed our experiences, and decided for the winner in all categories.

The pattern we’ve already seen several times, continues this time as well: You should choose your own favourite based on your preferences, since all the tested cloud providers have their specific strengths. There is, of course, an overall winner, but this might look completely different to you considering your very own priorities, since each one has specific strengths and room for improvements.

We are especially impressed by the performance of smaller and / or not so-well-known cloud vendors, such as Open Telekom Cloud or OVH, which was tested for the first time in this edition: Often they offer comparable performance and sometimes even more options than their bigger competitors, combined with more personal support and very reasonable pricing. That being said, let’s look into the winners. And don’t forget to check out our detailed comparison tables on the next pages for more details!
