Comparison of two cloud-based systems

cloud-based systems

There are many cloud-based systems available to businesses and individuals, but how do you know which ones are the best? One common comparison metric that can be used in comparing cloud systems is scalability, which measures the ability of the system to handle an increase in demand for its service. This comparison of two cloud-based systems demonstrates their usefulness through metrics and compares their scalability performance in two cloud platforms.

Google Cloud Platform vs Microsoft Azure

Cloud-Based Storage Performance We used two cloud-based systems to demonstrate the usefulness of our metrics and compare their scalability performance in two cloud platforms. One system was a Google Cloud Platform (GCP) instance with three disks attached, while another was an Azure instance with three disks attached. The GCP disk’s utilized a RAID 0 configuration, while Azure’s utilized a RAID 5 configuration. The GCP disk array utilized local NVMe SSD storage, while Azure used slower SATA drives. All tests were performed using iostat with an average write bandwidth at 256 KB/sec for 30 minutes on each drive without encryption or compression enabled. Any difference greater than 10% is significant at 95% confidence when using 5 minute samples from both systems.

Choosing your cloud provider

When it comes to choosing a cloud provider, you need to first figure out what sort of scale you’re aiming for. You also have to consider your budget and availability concerns. If you’re just starting out and have no idea what kind of traffic or scale you might get in six months or a year, we recommend going with Amazon Web Services (AWS). It offers a free tier that gives you access to three EC2 instances running Linux with 1GB memory each enough to start building an application as well as 5GB data transfer, 1 million requests per month on Amazon S3 storage, and more. Plus, AWS enables users to choose from several types of virtual servers that are different in terms of compute and memory resources as well as networking capabilities.

The total cost of ownership (TCO)

Running a website on your own servers is more expensive than using a cloud-based platform. Many cloud providers offer their hosting services at prices lower than what you would pay to maintain your own data center. The speed and scalability benefits that come with cloud computing also reduce TCO; it’s much easier to add or remove compute capacity in a cloud environment than in your own data center. You’ll also save money by not having to invest in software and hardware, manage operating systems and patch levels, apply security updates and so on. All these elements have an impact on costs when compared with public clouds’ simplified infrastructure stacks.

What are some considerations before adopting a cloud computing platform?

Cloud computing is a great resource for many businesses, but there are some concerns about its use. Concerns about service level agreements, integration with existing software and hardware, and lack of control over your data can all make moving to cloud computing problematic. That said, most issues are easily resolved by any business that thinks through their needs carefully before making a decision. One way to overcome these issues is to choose between an IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) or PaaS (Platform as a Service) provider. With IaaS providers, users have more control and visibility into their virtualized servers; they also have access to multiple cloud platforms with greater flexibility when switching between providers.

Are all IaaS providers created equal?

We’ve been comparing and contrasting IaaS providers on several different metrics, but until now we haven’t looked at overall performance. Is one cloud provider more efficient than another? It all depends on what you’re trying to do, but if you are looking for a simple comparison across cloud platforms, here is a look at some of our latest results. This is only one way to analyze your options; take it as an FYI for further investigation. If you are looking for help with your own cloud migration, contact us today.

Final words

We hope that you enjoyed our presentation on Lending Club and our comparison of cloud platforms. We used non-standard metrics to determine which platform has better scalability, so don’t just look at their users; instead compare them against each other. It’s important to remember that your business needs are different from your competitors, so no single system is right for every company. You’ll have to make a choice based on factors like features and cost, but we hope that by using non-standard measures you can cut through marketing hype and find a product that really works for you.
