Cloud Performance Benchmark Series: Part 2
For part two of the Cloud Vendor Benchmark 2015 Report, CPU and memory performance tests are conducted on five different VM sizes across 15 leading IaaS providers.
Performance Analysis of Virtual Machines on NxtGen ECS and Competitive IaaS Offerings
NxtGen commissioned this benchmarking analysis to examine the relative performance of major VM components including virtual cores, memory, block storage, and internal network for NxtGen Enterprise Cloud Services (ECS), Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Rackspace Cloud Servers.
Performance and Price-Performance Analysis: Internap AgileCLOUD and Amazon EC2
Internap commissioned this performance and price-performance benchmarking analysis that examines common applications using synthetic tests. The report specifically examines three different types of web servers and two types of databases.
Generational Performance Comparison: Microsoft Azure’s A-Series and D-Series
In Fall 2014, Microsoft Azure released its D-Series Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), significantly improving performance over the standard A-Series. Performance and pricing are both key considerations in evaluating public-cloud options.
Cloud IaaS Performance & Price-Performance: SherWeb, AWS, and Microsoft Azure
Cloud Spectator was commissioned by SherWeb to gauge the performance of different virtual machine (VM) sizes on three public cloud providers. Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure were included in this study for comparison with SherWeb.
Comparison of Windows IaaS Environments
Cloud Spectator was commissioned by Expedient to gauge the performance of virtual machines (VMs) on several public cloud providers. Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Rackspace were included in this study for comparison. Both performance and price-performance were examined to evaluate the value of each provider’s VM.
Comparing Major Cloud Service Providers: Virtual Processor Performance
Cloud computing continues to play an increasingly important role for IT organizations in 2014. In partnership with Cloud Spectator, Gigaom Research conducted research to determine how three major cloud providers — Amazon EC2, Microsoft Azure and Rackspace Cloud — perform with regards to processor and memory.
