  • VPS - you probably share the server with other people
  • bare metal - server is all yours
  • disk is SSD
  • gce prices are assuming sustained use discount
  • Scaleway and Hetzner prices are in euro, I converted them to $. Conversion rates might change
  • Scaleway has data centers in Paris and Amsterdam
  • Hetzner has German data centers
  • Digital Ocean has SF and NYC data centers
  • Scaleway allows attaching additional storage at 1 euro per 50 GB, multiple volumes of up to 150 GB
  • Digital Ocean has bandwidth limit (although currently they don't charge for going over the limit).
  • Scaleway has unmetered bandwidth but limits speed. 200 Mb/s is max 64 TB/month but obviously you won't be using max speed 24/7
  • Digital Ocean offers CoreOS
  • Scaleway allows adding additional volumes, 1 euro for 50 GB, volume size up to 150 GB
