Cloud computing speed tests and estimate of cloud computing hardware market

CloudSleuth by Compuware Gomez is trying to create performance data to compare the speed of different cloud computing services.

The average global performance is based on response times gathered from Gomez Last Mile Peers. The response times provided above have been averaged by month from all geographies. More about the sample application being monitored can be found in the GPV Methodology.

Gomez Last Mile Peers are 100,000+ real, consumer-grade desktops connected to 2,500+ local ISPs and wireless carriers located in 168+ countries. 200 Last Mile test transactions are run per hour on each of the test target instances. These test transactions are run from 125 peers located in the U.S, and 75 peers located outside the U.S.

IDC’s projects $1.6 billion in revenue for network equipment revenues used to power both public and private cloud deployments in 2011.

According to MarketsandMarkets, the lucrative sector will increase from $37.8 billion in 2010 to $121.1 billion in 2015 at a CAGR of 26.2% from 2010 to 2015.

Cloud-based solutions and adoption of cloud computing could generate up to EUR 763 billion in economic benefit in the five largest European economies by 2015, part two of EMC Corporation’s 2011 Cloud Dividend report conducted by the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) revealed.

Distribution, retail and hotels are expected to generate EUR 233 billion by 2015, mostly from accelerated business creation, business development and cost savings. The sum represents some 31 percent of the total economic benefit forecast by CEBR while 77 percent of the overall value is expected to be generated by adoption of private and hybrid cloud solutions.
