Amazon also offer a similar deal - 12 month free account.
However the Google Cloud offer (reportedly) has better performance

better than Azure also...

https://lowendbox.com/ has a good list of cheap VPS providers. Both
Digital Ocean and Vultr offer VPS hosting in Australia and good deals at
around $10US pm - but many people require much less than what those
deals provide. So if you pool resources with trusted friends you can get
a useful VPS for the price of a loaf of cheap bread per month.
