Lastly is a look at the total cost per hour for running all of the benchmarks conducted:

Google's n1-highcpu-8 instance had come out on top followed by EC2 m5.large and then Google n1-standard-8 while Microsoft finally placed in fourth position with their Azure D4s v3 instance type. But based upon your particular workloads of interest, the positioning may be different.

If you wish to see how your own cloud or bare metal instance performs to the Amazon/Google/Microsoft cloud instance types benchmarked in this article today, by installing the Phoronix Test Suite you can see how your own performance compares in a side-by-side and fully-automated manner by running phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1802221-FO-JUSTCLOUD37.
