Received this email on Alibaba's cloud offering, which has their new Sydney POP opened recently. For USD $33 (including GST, ~AUD $42.50) you'll get the following "SSD Cloud Server" for 12 months:
- 1 CPU core
- 1GB DDR4 Memory
- 40GB SSD Cloud Disk
- 1TB Data Transfer
Service gets activated pretty much straight away, and you get an IPv4 address on AS45102. Note that AlibabaCloud is gearing up to be a full blown cloud service comparable to AWS and Google Cloud with virtual servers, object storage, database, etc on offering (although I don't think all the services are available in their Sydney POP) thus cannot compared with your average low end box. The interface is a bit harder to get used to (comparing to AWS and Google Cloud, haven't used Azure).
