Burstorm and Rice University release results from the industry's first comprehensive and continuous cloud computing price-performance benchmark. Confirms traditional performance benchmarking techniques are inadequate for the analysis of cloud computing price-performance.

“I think the report is incredibly valuable. I’ve looked at this problem many times over the years and it is very difficult to make buying decisions on cloud services without this context.” – Dave Hansen, VP/GM Dell

Burstorm, the CAD application provider for cloud architects, in collaboration with Rice University, released today the industry’s first comprehensive and continuous price-performance benchmark report. The benchmark covered seven cloud service providers, 266 products spanning three continents and was executed for fifteen consecutive days starting in mid May.

"There are a number of challenges to price-performance benchmarking since TPC benchmarks were launched thirty years ago," said Dr. T.S. Eugene Ng, associate professor of Rice University. “Benchmarking today is far more dynamic and includes many more products."

"Many of the results confirmed our initial thoughts," said Edward Wustenhoff, CTO Burstorrm. "But a 622% variation in performance for similar instances across all providers is a significant data point.”
