Cirrus Hosting VS Azure VS AWS: Which One Is More Affordable?

If you are a small business owner and thinking about using VPS or cloud services, confused about the AWS and Azure pricing model and wondering how Cirrus hosting’s cloud services fares against them… this post is for you.

There are many reasons to order a cloud server from Cirrus Hosting rather than Azure or AWS – for instance, we offer Better support, greater ease of use, better IOPS, enterprise hardware, flat monthly rate and no hidden fees.

I plan to compare Cirrus Hosting could VM plan IV against comparable tier, similar hardware, hosted in Canada and monthly billing plan (pay as you go) without a long-term contract.  For Azure, I am taking General purpose D series, Canada Central datacenter and pay as you go. For AWS instance I have chosen m5d.large, 100% utilization/m, Canada Central datacenter and NVMe SSD.  

The following table shows the resource and price comparison between Cirrus Hosting Cloud VM, Azure VM and AWS instance.
