Bench The Cloud

According to a press release that I just viewed by MSPmentor, Bench the Cloud was co-developed by Web Hosting Talk and The Planet. Web Hosting Talk will own and manage the site, and The Planet will become a charter member of Bench the Cloud’s advisory board.  An official announcement is expected later today about this matter.  Here is what both of them are saying about the new “Bench the Cloud” website:

“Bench the Cloud is built on a suite of open-source benchmarking tools and measures three key criteria essential to running cloud applications: CPU performance, disk read and disk write speed. Further information about these three performance indices is detailed in an individualized dashboard. Users can sort and filter the public benchmarks according to provider, virtualization status, total RAM and CPU cores. The application can also be used to test non-virtualized machines, and can be downloaded onto any Linux-based machine.”

I think it’s a good idea for a hosting company to team up with a blogging company to make this venture successful.  Cloud hosting is gaining ground with all the major corporations out there and there are so many that are looking for cloud server information.  Good call The Planet, and even better call for Web Hosting Talk.  Hopefully this service will live up to what they have promised: “to give visibility into the performance of cloud or virtualized server platforms, and provides standardized performance feedback and comparisons.”

So what are your thoughts on this?
