Would have been nice to have a real price comparison, to be able to show price per unit-compute on both.
I understand the er, ‘real’ server price to be $5000 for 6 VMs, and this was run on one, giving a rough cost for comparison at $833?
This still seems high as it would make the Pi a factor of 2-4X better value, which doesn’t seem to make sense?
It really comes down to price per core here, since that’s really the reason the Pi cluster performed well. So, $400/core vs $10/core, or something. 12 cores vs 2, on a system capable of taking advantage of them.
I’d like to see the same benchmarks repeated for the Odroid C2.
