A new benchmarks section and API is currently under development and scheduled for release in summer 2015. In the meantime, use the links below to view tabular data from our current benchmark datasets. Metrics from the prior 18 months of testing are included. Click table header columns to sort.

The Cost/Hr column provides an hourly cost (or range of costs when multiple purchasing options are available). Hourly costs are normalized to include setup/upfront fees, or if a service bills monthly instead of hourly. Add-on features and storage costs are not included in this column.

Value columns are derived from dividing the primary benchmark metric by the normalized hourly cost. If a range of costs are available, both a high (best value) and low value metric is provided (e.g. Amazon EC2 reserve vs on-demand).

All testing is performed using the latest Ubuntu 14 image offered by each service. Additionally, optimal settings are selected based on documentation and provider recommendations (e.g. affinity groups, VPC, etc.).
