Measuring the Public Cloud from a Network Performance Perspective

A study released by network monitoring firm ThousandEyes on Nov. 8 reveals new insights into how the big three public cloud providers, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Compute Platform (GCP) and Microsoft Azure, perform at a network level. The 28-page, 2018 Public Cloud Performance Benchmark Report, is based on analysis conducted by periodically monitoring bi-directional network performance for a four-week period, across the public cloud providers. In total, ThousandEyes said it collected over 160 million data points as part of the analysis.
