Performance and Stability to Amazon EC2, Rackspace 
BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 --  Cloud Spectator, a leading
independent cloud computing analyst firm that provides research and
data on Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), today unveiled its
cloud performance and stability report on Lunacloud. The report
highlights Lunacloud's performance and stability through
industry-standard open-source benchmark tests and measures the
results against Amazon EC2 and Rackspace Cloud Servers (not OpenStack
Cloud). After 30 days of analysis, the data showed Lunacloud
outperformed Amazon and Rackspace consistently over the 30-day
testing period. 
Other key findings included: 


 
--  Lunacloud disk performance scored up to 8x better than Amazon or
    Rackspace disk performance.
    
    
--  Lunacloud's internal network throughput is 2x faster than Rackspace's
    internal network throughput, and significantly more stable than Amazon
    within the 30-day testing period.
    
    
--  Amazon Ec2's CPU performance scored higher over the period of 30 days
    compared to Lunacloud and Rackspace's CPU performance.
    
    
--  Rackspace RAM performance was steady through the period of 30 days of
    testing, but Lunacloud's performance scored higher in test results.

  
"What we're seeing from much of our analyses on many different cloud
services is that smaller cloud providers aren't necessarily worse
from a performance angle," stated Kenny Li, co-founder and CEO of
Cloud Spectator. "Lunacloud is a perfect example of a smaller player
who can deliver great value. As companies become more educated on the
various performance metrics and what ones are most important for
their business, they will feel confident in partnering with service
providers of all sizes."
