AWS CloudFormation

We create the resource stack with AWS CloudFormation. We can manage all the resources as a bundle. We can update the entire stack by updating the AWS CloudFormation template. It is very easy to delete the entire resource with AWS CloudFormation. If we do those resource creations and manage them manually, then we need to do lots of manual involvements. When we use AWS CloudFormation, we can reduce time to create and manage resources.

Vultr Bare Metal

If you are a large organization where you have a lot of traffics in your web app, Vultr Bare Metal
is good for you. If your scenario is something like, you sometimes have
high traffic, and sometimes low traffic, Azure might not be the best choice if you want to cut your cost.

Alternatives Considered

AWS CloudFormation

AWS CloudFormation has more features and robustness. It is suited for professional projects since it provides stability and a wide variety of options for configurations. These include not only dividing stacks by specific code changes, but also in regions. This allows more granularity and control over all stacks. If you want to delete them all just by a region, you can do it.

Vultr Bare Metal

Vultr is fairly cheap. Vultr also is better than many cheaper and bad providers out there. It might not have all the features we needed, but whatever it has, it has the best.

Additional Pricing Details
There is no additional charge for using AWS CloudFormation with resource providers in the following namespaces: AWS::*, Alexa::*, and Custom::*. In this case you pay for AWS resources (such as Amazon EC2 instances, Elastic Load Balancing load balancers, etc.) created using AWS CloudFormation as if you created them manually. You only pay for what you use, as you use it; there are no minimum fees and no required upfront commitments. When you use resource providers with AWS CloudFormation outside the namespaces mentioned above, you incur charges per handler operation. Handler operations are create, update, delete, read, or list actions on a resource.
