Who provides the fastest cloud service? According to CloudSlueth (a Compuware community), the honors go to Microsoft's Azure platform. CloudSleuth uses the Gomex performance network to determine the reliability and consistency of popular public IaaS (infrastructure as a service) and PaaS (platform as a service) providers. CloudSleuth runs an identical sample ecommerce application on the popular cloud service providers and measures the results over at least six months of historical data. Microsoft's Azure platform beat out Google App Engine, GoGrid, OpSource, RackSpace, Amazon, TekLinks, BitRefinery, CloudSigma and several others. The report, available here, shows a significant difference between Azure servers running near Chicago and those running in Singapore.
