    Phoronix: Amazon EC2 Cloud Benchmarks Against Bare Metal Systems

    After earlier this month delivering new Amazon EC2 cloud benchmarks, several Phoronix readers had requested some reference benchmark results against some "bare metal" hardware systems. For those not running their own performance comparisons against Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud, here's some more benchmark results showing different EC2 cloud instance types compared to an Intel Ivy Bridge and Haswell system.

    Default Interesting...

    I personally would have liked to see one of the c1.xlarge instances with 20ECU... I use them for rendering at times, and they are really useful

    Thing is, they only become good value when using the spot pricing... I use a set price for the master node [so that node holds the master files without risk of being shut down], ($0.58/hour IIRC) and then I get around 10 spot instances, of the same type for $0.07/hour... thats 10 Machines that are each faster than my Quad Core i5 (750) at home, for $1.30/hour... plus its fun Alot better than $7.58/hour
