  1. Benchmarking the Disk Speed of IaaSes It’s helpful to know the performance characteristics when selecting a disk type for an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). In this blog post we describe the results of benchmarking various disk types of various IaaSes, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Compute Engine (GCE), and VMware vSphere. We measure Input/output operations per second (IOPS), read throughput, and write throughput. Categories:   BOSH    Logging & Metrics   
  2.

In this blog post we present GoBonnieGo, a multi-threaded Golang-based filesystem benchmark program. Categories:   Logging & Metrics
