Azure Beats Google and Rackspace in Cloud Performance Benchmark

Compuware says that Microsoft's cloud computing platform offers the best performance.

ComputerWeekly: Compuware has released the results of a 12-month study that tested various cloud computing platforms using the Gomez Performance Network (GPN) benchmark. Microsoft's Azure ranked highest, followed by Google App Engine, GoGrid, OpSource and Rackspace, in that order.

"We know that distance, routing and peering play an important role in determining website performance, and it is clear that some providers, such as Microsoft Azure, have effectively mastered the combination," said Compuware's Steve Tack.
