All of AWS, Azure and Google Cloud are providing some kind of free tier to the users. I am always wondering how those free tier VPS performance looks like. I did some bench work to test them out.

Here is the method and result.

Bench script:https://github.com/n-st/nench provides a nice bench.sh and a single command for you to run this script on your VPS.

Commands to run this script: (curl -s wget.racing/nench.sh | bash; curl -s wget.racing/nench.sh | bash) 2>&1 | tee nench.log (wget -qO- wget.racing/nench.sh | bash; wget -qO- wget.racing/nench.sh | bash) 2>&1 | tee nench.log

Basically this benchmark script will do following tasks:

get system info benchmark the processor and memory (both single and multi core) benchmark the disk benchmark networking

I put all results in a table to do a comparison. Green color is the winner on that item.

Azure seems slowest one from all results. I just did another bench for a bigger size vm on Azure. I choose Standard D1 (1 vcpus, 3.5 GB memory, Max IOPS 4×500. ).Lets see the bench result:
