The 2020 Cloud Report

The 2020 Cloud Report compiles results from over 1,000 microbenchmarks tests across AWS, Azure, and GCP to help you evaluate each provider. Here’s what we learned.

Choosing a cloud provider is deceptively difficult.

The 2020 Cloud Report compiles results from over 1,000 microbenchmarks tests to help you evaluate the machine type offerings of the cloud providers. We compared the performance of AWS, GCP, and new-to-the-report Azure across microbenchmarks (CPU, Network throughput and latency, storage read/write performance), and TPC-C.

  • Understand performance tradeoffs across machine types for each cloud
  • Learn which cloud provider is most cost efficient for your needs
  • Dive into benchmark results for TPC-C workloads across the clouds

3 Cloud Providers

This year’s report tested 26 different machine types across AWS, Azure, and GCP.

4 Benchmark Categories

Open-source benchmark tests compare CPU, network throughput and latency, storage read and writer performance, and TPC-C.
