Alibaba Cloud, Pick the right instance type

By April 27, 2018 No Comments
When we first tried to launch our first instance on Alibaba Cloud, intuitively we picked the default burstable type T5.
1vCPU 1GBRam 20GBUltraDisk – 1 Month Cost
Once launched, we are shocked, by the speed of running a simple apt-get update, how can it be so slow, it took 2 minutes for it to be completed. Kept exploring and found this instance type: The cost is slightly higher, but now apt-get update completed in 10++ seconds, the normal speed, been using this instance so far for development work load, and happy ever since. Lesson learnt: not all burstable CPU are the same 🙂
