How to compare Packet with Scaleway

We've long been fans of Scaleway, with its focus on multi-architecture and bare metal. We are natural kindred spirits! 

When it comes down to it, Scaleway is relentlessly focused on keep costs low and its product offerings reflect that: a mixture of VM and bare metal solutions that are almost insanely inexpensive! Packet, on the other hand, tilts toward the upper end of the market in terms of features, services, locations, and (of course) price.
