Microsoft Azure generally has the lowest on-demand and discounted instance pricing, while AWS runs in the middle of the pack
AWS, Azure, Google, and IBM are named in the top categories of cloud providers AND are showing a significant drop in the prices of cloud in addition to their discounting options and dropped billing increments. If looked- into some second billing situations, Costs are drooping down but their complexity increases subsequently. We need to Understand the navigate complexity with critical importance. In estimations more than 10 billion USD in the next 12 months will be spent for cloud alone.
With each cloud provider mapping an appropriate in different criteria a quick comparison is required for instance “apples to apples!” All ways stay notified with the amount of memory that will vary in similar instances across different cloud providers. Now, difference in memory is relatively 10 percent or less, but with high CPU conditions, AWS and Azure will provide more than double the memory, Google and IBM can provide. AWS has instance families with and without the local SSD for standard (M3 and M4) and high CPU (C3 and C5) instance types. For high memory types, there is only the R3 family, which includes an SSD drive. Azure provides a local SSD with different types resulting in “paying for it” considering whether you need it or not .in the case of Google, it never included local SSD because this will require keen knowledge for payments towards add-on costs. With minimum size of add-ons being 375 GB it strikes to be very large.
Google Persistent Disk can be used as an alternative but cannot provide the same access times as that of local SSD.
Now, coming to IBM, it usually has a SAN drive provided along with an option of local drive on the standard type.
