Test Performance Benchmark on Google Cloud

What is Google Cloud

Google Cloud, Google Compute Engine is a cloud computing platform provided by Google, with virtual machine services, storage, data analysis, and many other advanced technologies.. With Google Cloud, you can create your own VPS server or dedicated Servers and the upgrade is quite easy and fast without much impact on your operations thanks to cloud computing technology.

In order to increase the number of new customers, Google Cloud is offering a free program of $ 300 for 1 year. In this article, I will evaluate the performance of two different Google Cloud packages with the test scripts, including the Bench.sh, Serverscope, TocDo.net.
