AWS Vs Vultr BenchMark

I was big fan of AWS Servers as it pro­vides so many automa­tion & options to sup­port scal­able appli­ca­tion .But  from the start­ing i had doubt on its per­for­mance , so i decid­ed to bench­mark its per­for­mance and below is the result. I bench-marked fol­low­ing resources -

  • Disk I/O Speed
  • Net­work Speed
  • CPU Per­for­mance
  • RAM Per­for­mance
  • Price

I com­pared these results with vultr.com vps servers and some more providers (all results were sim­i­lar to vul­tr so i havnt men­tioned) even with my local machine (and found my local RAID Disk faster than aws SSD)

Note: I haven’t test­ed Pro­vi­sioned I/O EBS , These tests are on Nor­mal EBS Vol­ume.

To test CPU Per­for­mance we did fol­low­ing test — (cal­cu­lat­ing md5sum and writ­ing to disk)

 

dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M count=1024 | md5sum
