Hi, how do you know these are similar? Did you only take the word 'small' into account or did you take a comparison of 2 evenly priced instances (which could be small vs large for example)

Michael: They are equivalent in pricing and seem to be quite similar according to the specification. Both cost 0.08 USD per hour for pay-as-you-go contracts. EC2 specifies small instance as "1.7 GB memory, 1 virtual core with 1 EC2 Compute Unit" whereas Microsoft specifies them as "1.6GHz CPU, 1.75GB RAM". It seems that Amazon's EC2 Compute Unit is rated at less than Azure's.
