Durham, NC, June 10 —Principled Technologies and the BenchmarkXPRT Development Community release the CloudXPRT Preview, a free benchmark that can accurately measure the performance of modern, cloud-first applications deployed on modern infrastructure as a service (IaaS) platforms, whether those platforms are paired with on-premises (datacenter), private cloud, or public cloud deployments.
The CloudXPRT Preview includes web microservices and data
analytics workloads. Testers can use metrics from both workloads to compare IaaS
stack (both hardware and software) performance and to evaluate whether any
given stack is capable of meeting SLA thresholds. CloudXPRT can be configured
to run on local datacenter, AmazonWeb Services™, Google Cloud
Platform™, or Microsoft Azure™ deployments.
“Existing datacenter benchmarks don’t make it easy to understand how applications will perform on a given IaaS infrastructure,” said Bill Catchings, co-founder of Principled Technologies, which administers the BenchmarkXPRT Development Community. “CloudXPRT uses cloud-native components on a hardware and software stack to provide end-to-end performance metrics that allow users to choose the best configuration for their business.”
The CloudXPRT Preview provides OEMs, the tech press, vendors, and
other testers with an opportunity to work with CloudXPRT directly and shape the
future of the benchmark with their feedback. Testers may also freely
access the CloudXPRT source code.
CloudXPRT is part
of the BenchmarkXPRT suite of performance evaluation tools, which
includes AIXPRT, WebXPRT, CrXPRT, TouchXPRT, HDXPRT, and MobileXPRT. The XPRTs
help users get the facts before they buy, use, or evaluate tech products such
as servers, computers, and tablets/phones.
