Rackspace vs AWS vs Internap


I wanted to make sure you saw the new research report from Cloud Spectator, Benchmarking a NoSQL Database on Bare Metal versus Public Cloud. Cloud Spectator’s benchmark tests confirm the price-performance advantages of running big data workloads in bare-metal environments over comparable virtual offerings from Amazon Web Services and Rackspace.

Example findings include:

  • Internap outperformed Rackspace by 5x and Amazon by 51% on throughput speed when loading data into the database.

  • Internap had 59% less latency than Amazon and 32% less latency than Rackspace when testing a balanced workload.

  • The equivalent monthly price of hosting an Aerospike database on Internap’s bare-metal servers was at least 78% less expensive than doing so on Amazon I2 or Rackspace Performance Server.
