Price comparison amongst cloud companies turns out to be a tedious task on account of the difficulty in comparing individual resource prices across providers. Current tariff models vary from fully flexible resource selection options to fixed quantity combinations offered as a t-shirt size.
So what are the relevant aspects of price comparison? What do I pay for? What is the cost variance based on PERFORMANCE?
Answers to these questions would be easy if we have a performance benchmarking provider wise. As an example the diagram below highlights the benefit of this exercise, Provider B with a 2 Core 4 GB resource offers the same ASC* (performance value, see link for more details) as Provider A with a 4 Core 16 GB resource.
Second diagram goes on to highlight the dollar saving of 70%, achieved just by an intelligent substitution of a lower configuration machine from Provider A for the higher one from Provider B.
Explore more such insights on how cost can wary depending on the providers’s technical performance, by logging onto ‘ASCAMSO’s Platform’. The ‘Platform’ can be queried for a specific ASC* value, and the result is price payable provider wise for the desired level of performance. You may even use the ASCAMSO tools to evaluate the ASCs of your provider.
Currently the platform offers a price comparison amongst 50 providers for a specific set of individual resources, like RAM, CPU Cores, Storage, Network Traffic etc. Prices can be compared datacenter wise and on an hourly or monthly basis.
