Cloud Spectator (https://cloudspectator.com/) is one of the most reputable, independent cloud benchmarking and consulting firms focused on the performance of IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and applications in the Cloud. The company recently conducted a Linode-commissioned study on NVMe-based block storage and looked at major cloud providers and alternate cloud providers including Linode, AWS, Azure, GCP, Vultr, and DigitalOcean. The study found that Linode continues to offer better performance and value for money beating the biggest player in the industry, AWS.
We’re rolling out ultra-fast, better-performing, and more reliable NVMe block storage across all of our global data centers. Block storage rates will remain at $0.10/GB per month, and customers with existing volumes in our data centers can migrate their volumes when NVMe block storage becomes available at no extra cost.
