Performance Benchmarking of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) Clouds with CloudWorkBench
Paper i proceeding, 2019
The continuing growth of the cloud computing market has led to an unprecedented diversity of cloud services with different per- formance characteristics. To supportservice selection, researchers and practitioners conduct cloud performance benchmarking by measuring and objectively comparing the performance of different providers and configurations (e.g., instance types in different data center regions). In this tutorial, we demonstrate how to write per- formance tests for IaaS clouds using the Web-based benchmarking tool Cloud WorkBench (CWB). We will motivate and introduce benchmarking of IaaS cloud in general, demonstrate the execution of a simple benchmark in a public cloud environment, summarize the CWB tool architecture, and interactively develop and deploy a more advanced benchmark together with the participants.
