Comparison of Multiple Cloud Frameworks

Today, many cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) frameworks exist. Users, developers, and administrators have to make a decision about which environment is best suited for them. Unfortunately, the comparison of such frameworks is difficult because either users do not have access to all of them or they are comparing the performance of such systems on different resources, which make it difficult to obtain objective comparisons. Hence, the community benefits from the availability of a testbed on which comparisons between the IaaS frameworks can be conducted. FutureGrid aims to offer a number of IaaS including Nimbus, Eucalyptus, OpenStack, and OpenNebula.
