AWS vs Azure vs Google vs IBM vs Oracle - VMs Q2 2023 - Network Pricing

Go back to list

The traffic pricing is scattered accross the inbound (from the Internet), the inter-regions and the outbound (to the Internet) traffic, in this study we focus only on egress traffic: from the Cloud's provider datacenter to the Internet.

Traffic cost is well known to be blur and hardly predictable. It's even considered as a major vendor-lock due to the free entry of data but paid leave. Depending of the vendors, the monthly traffic pricing calculation can be difficult. Providers offer simple or complex billing composed by a single or multiple tiers.

Notes

  • Oracle offers 10TB of traffic across all services and regions per month
  • Similar for AWS with 100GB
