Dimension Data's cloud solution performance measured in report
Posted on 18-Jul-2013 22:46 | Tags Filed under: News



Independent testing carried out in May 2013 by The Tolly Group reveals that Dimension Data’s Public Compute-as-a-Service (CaaS) cloud servers showed consistently high performance across CPU, memory, storage and networking measures. The report shows dramatic differences between providers and highlights the importance of performance in determining the true cost of a cloud computing solution.

The Tolly Group has been testing systems and networking infrastructure for over 25 years and uses industry-standard testing methodologies and tools to benchmark system and networking performance. In this test, commissioned by Dimension Data, the Tolly Group tested the system performance and network throughput of US-based web/app servers running on the public cloud platforms of Dimension Data Public CaaS, IBM Smartcloud, Amazon Web Services and Rackspace Cloud using three different cloud server configurations: small (1 vCPU and 2 GB RAM), medium (2 vCPU and 4 GB RAM) and large (4 vCPU and 8 GB RAM) systems. The configuration details, test setup and methodology are documented within the report. The testing showed performance benefits of Dimension Data’s cloud solution versus the other solutions tested.

The Tolly Group benchmarked cloud servers using publicly available solutions from each vendor. The report shows that when compared to other cloud vendors, Dimension Data’s Public CaaS consistently provided high performance across configurations. In particular, when conducting a test on small systems, the market-share leader took 50% longer to complete a series of compute-intensive tests.

When measuring system memory performance on large systems, Dimension Data delivered more than two times the memory performance, as measured in memory operations per second, as the nearest competitor, and over five times the performance of the market leader.

The report also shows that when measuring average transactions per second on a local disk using the default file system, Dimension Data delivered 3.6X the market-share leader on small systems and more than 6X one of the solutions tested on large systems.

Commenting on the results, Steve Nola, Cloud Business Unit CEO at Dimension Data said: “Our cloud was built to support more than just testing and development or non-critical applications. Our Public CaaS clients use our cloud for running production web and software-as-a-service applications, as well as enterprise applications like SAP. Our unique network-centric architecture ensures security, reliability and high performance by leveraging best of breed technologies and best practices. The performance of a cloud provider can have a big impact on the quantity and size of cloud servers organisations need to run an application.”

“The Tolly Group thoroughly tested the cloud solutions across the parameters that matter most – system performance and network throughput,” said Kevin Tolly, founder of The Tolly Group. “Across the board, Dimension Data’s solution illustrated significant performance benefits among the solutions tested.”
