Testing and Comparing the Performance of Cloud Service Providers using a Service Broker Architecture
MetadataShow full item record
Service brokers are tools that allow different individual service providers to be integrated. An API can be a mechanism to provide a joint interface. Broker can actually also be use for more than integration. We use a cloud service broker that implements a multi-cloud abstraction API in order to carry out performance comparisons between different cloud services. The broker tool here is a multi-cloud storage API that integrates a number of provided storage services. The library supporting the API is organised into three services, which are a file, a blob and a table service. Using this broker architecture, we developed a performance test scenario to compare the different providers, i.e., to compare a range of storage operations by different providers.
