mcis2016Xiaolin CHENG presented his paper “Performance Analysis of Public Cloud Computing Providers” written in collaboration with Ahmed Bounfour at “10th Mediterranean Conference on Information Systems (MCIS)”, Paphos, Cyprus, 4-6 September 2016
The objective of this paper is to perform a comprehensive performance comparison of public cloud services for computing and to analyse the correlation between their prices and performance. Eight representative public cloud providers were divided into two groups using market share: small cloud providers and large cloud providers. Results revealed that these offered computing services vary widely in performance and price; most small cloud providers have more stable and better computing performance than large cloud providers; the performance of CPU impact price significantly.
