Cloud Spectator, a global agency specializing in the analysis of Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), recently evaluated the 1&1 Cloud Server. The benchmark was conducted to assess 1&1’s newest cloud solution in terms of overall performance and price-performance. Simulating end-user experience, Cloud Spectator conducted a series of unbiased performance tests on five similar mass-market cloud solutions – 1&1, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Aruba Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and CloudSigma. The assessment took into consideration processor, memory bandwidth, network storage, and internal network features.
The initial results, published earlier this month, showed the 1&1 Cloud Server provides competitive levels of raw performance and price-indexed performance, with strong price-performance value throughout the course of the study. The highlighted areas where the 1&1 Cloud Server excelled:
- Highest performance on vCPU, memory bandwidth, and storage performance
- Excellent price/performance value in vCPU, memory and even better on the storage tests
- Most stable performance over the test period
Now, the full report (a 27 page PDF : Cloud IaaS Performance & Price-Performance – Comparing Linux Compute Performance of 1&1, Amazon AWS, Aruba Cloud, CloudSigma, and Microsoft Azure) detailing the methodology, findings, and summary is available to download.
