State of the art of European IaaS Compute - Q2 2022 - Block Storage Pricing

Go back to list

Historically, Block Storage has an average price of $0.10 per GB, this price can be explained by the former General Puropose 2 from AWS. This last one has a baseline and burst performance of respectively 3,000 and 16,000 IOPS.

Cloud Mercato's assertions:

  • Kamatera, VEXXHOST, Oracle and Hetzner propose among the lowest prices of the market
