Cloud Benchmarking For Maximising Performance of Scientific Applications

Blesson Varghese, Ozgur Akgun, Ian Miguel, Long Thai, Adam Barker
2016 IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing  
The weights along with benchmarking data collected from the cloud are used to generate a set of two rankings - one based only on the performance of the VMs and the other takes both performance and costs  ...  The research reported in this paper addresses the above question by proposing a six step benchmarking methodology in which a user provides a set of weights that indicate how important memory, local communication  ...  Step 2 -Application-based Cloud Ranking: based on the performance of the VMs in the empirical analysis they are ranked.  ...
