Hi Faraz,

I did once build CP2K on a GCE instance. Unfortunately, I did take 
detailed performance measures. I would be, however, very curious!

While I'd expect decent single node performance, the biggest unknown is 
certainly the network.

You might want to have a look at our collection of benchmarks: 

...it includes workloads from different regimes, ie. communication vs 
computation bound.

And maybe, if your time permits, you could even add your own results to 
the list?
