Bigstep Metal Cloud vs AWS
AWS warrants no introduction. The question we always get when we talk about our services is why should someone go with Bigstep rather than AWS? The answer is typically "it depends". The Metal Cloud is not for everyone and everything. It has some specific use cases where we shine and others where we don't. We've put together a side-by-side comparison to make it easy to make a decision.
Why choose Bigstep?
Single tenant, bare metal instances
at no extra cost
There is very little you cannot do with AWS. Our primary advantage comes from the performance and stability improvement that bare metal brings to the table. You can get single tenant servers in AWS but at a premium price and you will still have the virtualization layer.
2x the compute performance
The typical performance improvement you should expect is 2x but it depends on the kind of workload you have. A customer found 20x improvement for deep learning model training.
6x faster network
The network latency is 6x lower in Bigstep than in AWS so microservices on Kubernetes will run faster in Bigstep than AWS. See this benchmark.
No lock-in with
Databases as a Service
There is also a lot less lock-in with Bigstep. All of the additional services we offer such as Databases as a Service are standard off-the-shelf technologies that you can deploy anywhere.
Why choose AWS?
We would highlight the serverless services. With AWS Lambda you can breakdown an app and run it's functions independently in an autoscalable environment. This eliminates the need for infrastructure management and OS management and offers a truly no-ops experience to developers.
AWS has a service for everything.
