Transcript of "Presentation for IGDCloud meetup: The clouds arena AWS ver. others"

  1. 1. AWS ver. others
  2. 2. What is ForthScale? ● Scalable infrastructure solutions company ● Team of experts from Web and Telecom ● Led by professional with more than 13 years of experience ● Established 2007 ● Privately Held ● Global customer base ● Supporting web operations 24x7
  3. 3. What does Forthscale provide? ● Consulting ● Design ● Integration ● Implementation ● Management Of IT infrastructure
  4. 4. IaaS origins Idea of shared hosting Better resource utilization First IaaS / PaaS UI - Cpanel? ● IaaS - Infrastructure as a service ● PaaS - Platform as a service
  5. 5. IaaS - what for ? Customer view (from different sources): Easy / Fast to deploy Scalability Business agility On demand flexible spending Lower pricing Less IT staff / Costs Simpler staging
  6. 6. IaaS - providers approach Different vendors have different agendas ● AWS - started as QA and dev clusters ● GoGrid - ambitious SF bay local hosting ● SL - merged traditional hosting and IaaS dev ● ProfitBricks - HPC made in Germany ● Linode / DO - evolution of shared hosting ● ClubVPS - knew VMware, targeted hosters ● CCC - capitalized on corporate customer base ● NV - bought a license, failed to automate
  7. 7. Tech approach ● Hypervise / Contain ● All Virtual / Hybrid ● VM Only / Some PaaS ● HW Bundles / Pay per Units
  8. 8. Business approach ● Use resources utilization management to your advantage, not hoster. ● Self service is a great slogan that will cost you downtime. ● Pay for what you use, avoid paying for resources you do not need.
  9. 9. Perks ● Shared HW LB ● Infiniband ● GUI design for infrastructure ● Burst resources ● Start-Up programs
  10. 10. Network to consider ● Number of locations ● Internal networks bandwidth ● Routes from developers and customers ● Traffic pricing policy
  11. 11. CPU Power Benchmarks ● Tested both single cores and multi cores. ● Q: Why test single core? ● A: Offered core can be different and it is a basic calculation unit offered. And it was different.
  12. 12. CPU Power Benchmark 1 thread of operations => loads 1 CPU thread used: SysBench performance evaluation. actual machines decommissioned virtual and physical sysbench --test=cpu --cpu-max-prime=20000 run
  13. 13. P4 = Pentium 4 Dual core machine i7 = Intel I7 CPU 975 Quad core 8 threads DO = Digital Ocean RS = Rackspace SL = Soft Layer PB = Profit Bricks CCC = Triple C AWS = Amazon Web Services
  14. 14. Power - single threaded load Lower the better in sec: P4 E5400 2c = 23.8986 i7 CPU 975@ 4c = 18.0273 Linode 1/ = 45.5619 DO 2c = 35.0549 DO 1c = 34.6393 RS 2c = 65.2599 CCC VZ = 69.9075 SL 1c = 23.8590 CCC 4c = 37.1676 PB 1c = 25.9413 AWS 4c = 35.6541
  15. 15. Power - multi threaded load i7 CPU 975@ 4c = 3.7195 Linode 1/ = 8.7930 DO 1c = 35.1690 DO 2c = 17.5108 RS 2c = 28.1856 PB 4c = 6.4365 AWS 4c = 9.0700 CCC 4c = 9.4104 CCC VZ = 66.8083
  16. 16. CPU Power ● Cores were not born equal ● Sometimes shared 16 threads are better than dedicated 2, sometimes it is not. ● Digital Ocean price / performance is appealing. 1 core 1GB ram in Softlayer will give you 10 cores 5 GB ram in Digital Ocean. It can be a factor.
  17. 17. IO BW Just a simple read test to calculate throughput All devices configured in same manner We used SW / HW / Virtual, IDE as reference Command: hdparm -t
  18. 18. IO BW IDE SW RAID1 = 94.95 IDE HW RAID5 = 241.01 EC2 EBS = 91.49 RS VM = 73.46 EC2 IS = 615.19 SL Local = 568.97 SL NAS = 232.99 Linode = 204.37 Hetzner VPS = 104.07 DO EU = 258.61 DO NA = 397.14 CCC VM = 468.87 PB EU = 621.96
  19. 19. IO BW
  20. 20. Pricing issues, what to expect AWS just bundles .... You can lease HW in 12 and 36m commitments You can buy some unused capacity SL will drive you insane ... 2cores 2GB of RAM might cost more than 4 Linode will provide you with fair pricing
  21. 21. Pricing issues, what to expect ● GoGrid will sell you more then you probably need. You need to buy capacity but at least you can decide how to break it. ● ProfitBricks have very straight forward pricing. ● Hetzner will lease you a loooot of used drives. But if you want a lot of resources for cheap - YES
  22. 22. Pricing - starter budget Let`s see how much will 50$ will get you. Ins=Instances, C=Cores, GB=Giga of RAM SL: 1C+1GB, GoGrid: 0.5C+0.5GB Linode: 2Ins x 1GB or 1Ins x 2GB AWS: 1Ins 1C +1.7GB or 3Ins x 0.5C 0.5GB DO: Up to 5 GB RAM and 10 Cores PB: 1C+1GB, RS: 1C+1GB, Hetzner: 4C +12GB dedicated OVH: 2C +16GB dedicated
  23. 23. Pricing - some spending money Let`s see how much will 350$ will get you. Ins=Instances, C=Cores, GB=Giga of RAM SL: 8C+8GB or 4C 12GB dedicated. Linode: UP to 16GB AWS: 4C+15GB, GoGrid: 10C+10GB DO: 15C+35GB (or 70x1c+0.5GB) PB: from 1C+29GB to 9C+2GB, RS: 4C+8GB, Hetzner: 3X 6C(12 threads) +64GB dedicated OVH: 8C(16 threads) +256GB dedicated
  24. 24. Pricing, some thoughts ● More power you need - less attractive AWS offering gets compared to other IaaS. ● IaaS is more attractive on variable needs, once you know your demands - dedicated costs less. ● Costs may or may not include traffic, backups, support.
  25. 25. Misc things to consider ● Support. Do you need a helping hand? ● API. Will you use automation and to what level? ● Pricing. How much money to invest in studying and following pricing structure?
  26. 26. Wrapping ups Will we make more benchmarks? Yes, follow our twitter @ForthScale Or visit our website, next benchmark in series: In-dept storage. Can we help with *? Yes we can! and we love to, so:
