Storage Price: A$1.10/GB/month$0.88/GB/month£0.54/GB/month€0.74/GB/month
CPU Weight: Higher is better, with the instance receiving more time on the CPU on the basis of its weight under high load.
Network: Allocated network throughput.
TPS (Transactions per second): Benchmark (June 2014) in transactions per second using 64 MySQL threads for all flavors, except 32 threads for 512MB.

*Your mileage may vary. A benchmark is only a guideline and not representative of the performance your application will see. Always benchmark your own application.

**Cloud Database's backups are stored in Cloud Files and therefore are subject to standard Cloud Files pricing per GB of storage used by the backups. Please see the Cloud Files pricing page for more details on Cloud Files pricing.
