Virtustream’s cloud price-to-performance ranks over 10 percent better
than the closest competitive cloud and 30-50 percent better than the
largest IaaS cloud providers worldwide
The Cloud Spectator portfolio of tests covered a wide range of performance characteristics for enterprise IaaS cloud services, comparing overall performance, application latency, application throughput and consistency over time, in addition to considering both raw performance and cost/hour of the service to compare results. As far as possible, the tests match the services tested (CPU, memory, disk space), using comparable offerings from the top 14 cloud providers*. On the majority of tests, Virtustream significantly outperformed AWS, Microsoft Windows Azure,
Virtustream performed extremely well across the broad suite of tests – which are designed to represent typical enterprise cloud requirements. In particular, Virtustream had the highest marks in the characteristics that align with running traditional production applications in the cloud (SAP, Microsoft, Oracle, etc.) – overall performance, network throughput, disk throughput for multiple applications, consistent latency, and HTTP performance.
Virtustream µVM™ cloud technology enables intelligent placement and management of application resources, which results in higher application performance and consistent response times. These characteristics are required for production enterprise applications to run in a cloud computing environment. Virtustream’s µVM™ patented technology, architecture and processes specialize in migrating and running traditional mission-critical and production applications in the cloud including SAP, Oracle, Microsoft and custom enterprise applications.
