CloudCmp: Comparing Public Cloud Providers

While many public cloud providers offer pay-as-one-go computing, their varying approaches to infrastructure, virtualization, and software services lead to a problem of plenty. To help customers pick a cloud that fits their needs, the authors develop CloudCmp, a systematic comparator of the performance and cost of cloud providers. CloudCmp measures the elastic computing, persistent storage, and networking services offered by a cloud along metrics that directly reflect their impact on the performance of customer applications. CloudCmp strives to ensure fairness, representativeness, and compliance of these measurements while limiting measurement cost.
