  • Denver, CO (1888PressRelease) March 17, 2012 - PeakColo, a provider of cloud computing Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), today announced that it is ranked an impressive 3rd worldwide and 12th in the North American market in Cloud Computing Performance (over a 30 day period view) as measured by the Global Provider View on CloudSleuth.

    Sponsored by Compuware, the technology performance company, CloudSleuth is the industry's only partner-driven cloud performance community that fosters a collaborative exchange of strategies, best practices and resources for deploying and managing applications in the cloud. In joining the CloudSleuth community, PeakColo began participating in the Global Provider View, a free cloud monitoring service that objectively benchmarks page delivery performance and availability metrics of popular public cloud providers.

    The Global Provider View application uses the Compuware Gomez Performance Network (GPN) to measure the performance of an identical sample application running on multiple cloud service providers. The application continuously measures vendor page delivery performance from more than 35 Internet backbone nodes across the globe. For anyone considering a cloud vendor, the Global Provider View provides near real-time vendor performance comparisons on a regional and global basis. Compuware Gomez® has developed a worldwide reputation for the quality and impartialness that clearly and unambiguously defines the methodology used for each of its benchmarks. CloudSleuth subscribes to the same open methodology in its performance visualization practices.

    While the Global Provider View uses the same tools and techniques as Gomez's formal benchmarks, it is actually a near real-time visualization tool rather than a benchmark. Unlike benchmarks which are published periodically, the Global Provider View provides users with a continuously updating view into the performance of cloud service providers.

    According to Luke Norris, CEO and Founder of PeakColo, "We see CloudSleuth as another valuable tool to measure our various services across our cloud node portfolio. Further, CloudSleuth provides another medium for our white label customers to be represented and differentiated from their competitors. This third party validation is a great tool which we are proud to be a part of."
