A cloud service analyst has suggested its research has indicated improved performance at web host Liquid Web
. Liquid Web, which was established in 1997, has headquarters in Lansing, Michigan, USA alongside facilities at Ann Arbor, Michigan, Phoenix, Arizona, and Amsterdam, Netherlands. The news was heralded by benchmarking results provided by CloudHarmony.
CloudHarmony, which has headquarters in Laguna Beach, California, USA, simplifies cloud services comparison by “providing reliable and objective performance analysis, reports, commentary, metrics and tools”. The company recently benchmarked the performance of a number of leading web hosts and cloud services providers. According the results, “Liquid Web's newest hosting zone tops the industry in a number of key metrics”. The company was listed as having the best CPU and Disk I/O performance and offered the best value for Random Write IOPS.
CloudHarmony’s tests compared solutions provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS), Liquid Web, DigitalOcean and Rackspace. Liquid Web’s CPU measurement received a score of 3,881 per Geekbench metrics (Geekbench is a cross-platform processor benchmark available for Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, Android, BlackBerry, and iOS) for a single CPU. This means the company’s VPS CPUs perform “76% better than Rackspace, 84% better than Digital Ocean, and 191% faster than AWS”. Its VPS Disk I/O (disk writing input and output) proved “323% faster than Rackspace, 979% faster than Digital Ocean, and 388% faster than AWS” in random write IOPS.
