Cloud computing is an emerging information technology which is rapidly growing. However, measuring the performance of cloud based applications in real environments is a challenging task for research as well as business community. In this work, we focused on Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) facility of cloud computing. We made a performance evaluation of two renowned public and private cloud platforms. Several performance metrics such as integer, floating Point, GFLOPS, read, random Read,

The motive of this analysis is to help cloud providers to adjust their data center parameters under different working conditions as well as cloud customers to monitor their hired resources. We analyzed and compared the performance of OpenStack and Windows Azure platforms by considering resources like CPU, memory, disk and network in a real cloud setup. In order to evaluate each feature, we used related
