THE STATE OF Cloud Storage IN 2013
On June 1st 2012 the number of
objects stored in Amazon S3 reached
1,000,000,000,000 one trillion
for every person on Planet Earth
3.3 objects for every star in
If you could count one object per second it would _. take you 31,71 0 years to count them all
It is estimated there is over 1 Exabyte of data stored in the cloud”
This is over 67 million iPhones worth of data
At year-end 2016, more than 50 percent of Global 1000 companies will have stored customer-sensitive data in the public cloud
- Gartner, Top Predictions for IT Organizations and Users for 2012 and Beyond
OR 1,073,741,824 Gigabytes
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR IT?
As the public cloud becomes more integrated with
enterprise infrastructure, independent testing and
monitoring of these systems becomes more critical to IT
To this end, there are three major benchmarks for the Cloud Storage Providers (CSPs)
WHAT SIZE FILES ARE USERS STORING?
File size distribution of files stored by the typical enterprise user
1 KB 10KB
100 MB 1 GB 0.4% 0.1%
9.7% 16.8% 22.2% 24.6% 26.2%
Over 75% of files stored are less than 10MB in size
THE BENCHMARKS TESTS
1. PERFORMANCE How fast can data be read/written to the cloud?
THREADCOUNT 50, IN MB/S, LONGER BARS ARE BETTER
TO WRITE 10 KB
Microsoft ----- WINNER
TO READ 10KB
Microsoft ------ WINNER
TO WRITE 10MB
TO READ 10MB
2. AVAILABILITY Is data stored in the cloud always available (read)?
Is the cloud available to accept data (write)?
AVERAGE AVAILABILITY RESPONSE TIME, IN SECONDS
0 Nov1 5 10 15 20 25 30
Testing was conducted from Nov 1st 2012 to Nov 30th 2012
3. ERRORS As the number of objects stored in the cloud increases are there resulting errors?
PERCENTAGE OF WRITE ERRORS
PERCENTAGE OF READ ERRORS
Microsoft was the only provider to achieve zero read and write errors
Even the CSP with the highest error rate performed well. At 0.000017% you would be 500X more likely to be struck by lightening than experience a write error
HOW DID THEY STACK UP?
