A startling 340% difference in performance found among the top European IaaS cloud providers
The European Cloud Service Providers 2016 Report is the most in-depth analysis of the European IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) marketplace ever conducted. Nearly four million data points were collected on 19 qualified IaaS providers with data centers in Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland. Testing was done for four different VM sizes; measuring vCPU, memory performance, and block storage performance.
Organizations looking to make a strategic investment into IaaS must understand how price and performance can vary widely between providers, and across workloads and resources —thus greatly affecting total cost of ownership.
