Looks like the CPUs don't identify properly.

model name : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2630L v2 @ 2.40GHz

$10/month - 1 core, 1GB RAM - 34231411530514
$20/month - 2 core, 2GB RAM - 25241411536745

Some of the virtualized environments seem to still be an issue.

The perhaps bigger problem is what do we do with the results. I can, for example, take all of the Xeon E5-2650L V2 results, but I would not want a VPS to be a part of it. These VPS/ cloud instances often do not use a full CPU core. Amazon is famous for this because they had a measure of performance that equaled a EC2 compute unit. That EC2 compute unit scaled across different underlying CPU architectures for basic math.

Maybe what we need is a if virtualized ( ask for user input on the instance type).

Hyper-V is another great example. It may have a processor detected correctly but depending on the workload running on the overall platform, you may get different performance results.

Maybe a subclass of VPS results somehow? Is there anyone doing a good comparison of providers? I was actually looking at moving a Dev site off of Dreamhost for my folks and was tying to see what system would work. That's why this was handy.

Eeek! Dreamhost! OK well STH did start there. How big does it need to be?
