  • As part of the Cloud Computing stack, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offerings become more and more widespread. They allow users to deploy and run virtual machines in remote data centers (the Cloud), paying by use. However, performance specifications for virtual machines provided by providers are not coherent and sometimes not even sufficient to predict the actual performance of a deployment. To measure hardware performance, hardware benchmarks are available. For measuring the performance… CONTINUE READING
