In order to support the market entry of our 1&1 Cloud Sever, the U.S. analyst agency Cloud Spectator reviewed our product. The aim of the survey was to evaluate the performance and price performance of the 1&1 Cloud Server offerings. The benchmark also compared the 1&1 Cloud Server with offerings by Amazon Web Services (AWS), Aruba Cloud, Microsoft Azure and CloudSigma. Cloud Spectator reviewed the virtual machine (VM) performance with the relative performance – components measured were the virtual cores, memory, block storage, and internal network. The VM sizes reviewed ranged from two and four vCPUs to eight vCPUs
The survey shows the outstanding levels of raw performance and price-indexed performance of the 1&1 Cloud Server. Additionally, 1&1 offers a strong price-performance value during the whole survey.
The key findings for 1&1 VMs:
- highest performance on vCPU, memory bandwidth, and storage performance
- higher price-performance value across the vCPU, memory and greater on the storage tests
- most stable performance over the test period
