Cloud Central Cloud Server Storage Performance Rated Very Good in CloudHarmony Testing

CloudHarmony recently conducted storage performance benchmarking on a number of cloud infrastructure providers including Cloud Central.   Cloud Central’s storage results were rated very good, please take a look for yourself at http://blog.cloudharmony.com/2010/06/disk-io-benchmarking-in-cloud.html

Cloud Central’s storage architecture features a highly reliable, performant and secure Sun storage hardware, running the ultra scalable ZFS filesystem.  We leverage multiple gigabit connections and iSCSI in our architecture, with redundant power, network and SAS connections in the architecture.

We also use enterprise grade Intel Solid State Disk (SSD) within our storage architecture.  SSD’s enable us to create a hybrid storage pool, enabling very fast read / write IO.  This makes Cloud Central Cloud Servers especially great for transactional systems (eg databases) that require fast IO commits.

Cloud Central Cloud Servers added to CloudHarmony.com speed test and availability monitoring site!

Cloud Central Cloud Servers have been added into the list of public cloud providers on the Cloud Harmony’s comparison, speed testing and availability monitoring website.

Visit http://cloudharmony.com/speedtest to perform a speed test (select Cloud Servers, then Asia then Start Test to commence the test).  Availability (uptime) monitoring statistics can be viewed at http://cloudharmony.com/status.  We are proud to say that we have the best cloud performance in the Asian region for Australian customers, and that our uptime statistics are currently 100% :)
