August 2020 represents the launch month of the C3I. It means that this value that we share with you today is going to be the reference value followed each month.
In this ranking, we can see that Google is the cheaper cloud provider on average for the two use cases that we took in our calculation.
AWS is pretty close to Google, while Azure is the last of this ranking, 6% more expensive than Google
Of course, this ranking is a synthesis and it doesn’t show the details in terms of regions, usages, platforms.
Your results for your infrastructure might be different.
This is the first month we calculate this indicator, next month you should see graphs and trends that we will follow over time.
Best in Web Hosting
For Web Plateform, we can conclude that the ranking is the same for the minimum price, maximum price, and average price.
Google Cloud Platform is definitely the cheaper cloud in this scenario. Then comes Azure, and then Amazon Web Services.
Note that the Google Cloud Platform has a shorter range of prices. It means that all regions have almost equivalents catalog and pricing model, which is not the case for Azure and AWS, that propose more regions with a wider price range.
Best in File Sharing Hosting
For the file share platform, the ranking is different. Here, in this scenario, AWS is the cheaper, then comes Azure, and finally Google.
AWS Has a wider catalog in terms of storage performance and can be efficient in this case.
If ranking is the same for Minimum and Average costs, this is not the same for the higher cost. It means that even if Azure is number two here, you might see that the higher price proposed by them is higher than Google’s highest prices.
It means that depending on the region you choose, this ranking might be different.
In overall, we can see that the match is very close. There is only a 6% gap between number 1 and number 3.
Also, Azure -which is ranked last based on average- has also the cheapest proposition in his catalog. So if you take the right region, Azure will be ranked first!
