  • David,

    I know that many tests (including Paessler's) proclaim Azure to be (one of) the fastest but those were my numbers.

  • Hi Johan, we use Azure as the cloud platform behind MediaValet (www.mediavalet.co) - the world's first 100% cloud based, digital asset management system (DAMS). We tested the offerings of all the other major providers and found Azure to offer the fasted and most robust cloud platform.

    Information Week just published the findings of CloudSleuth that you may find interesting:

Transcript

  • 1. CDN Performance Microsoft Windows Azure CDN Rackspace Cloud Files Google Storage Johann Burkard
  • 2. What’s a CDN? Content Delivery Network. Serves content from servers located close to visitors. Uses DNS magic. Fairly inexpensive these days. Great way to accelerate websites.
  • 3. Takeaways Both Google Storage and Rackspace Cloud Files are excellent performers. Windows Azure is not as good. Azure might be tuned for larger files. Storage and Cloud Files have 100 % uptime, Azure doesn’t.
  • 4. What was tested and how? Files sized 1 KB, 5 KB, 10 KB and 25 KB. Typical for website assets. 97381 hits. Segmented by country. 17 selected countries with more than 1000 hits. 57 % of requests from USA.
