The Cloud500 initiative is an open community-based effort for benchmarking IaaS Cloud providers.

The objective is to develop an end-to-end application-layer benchmark for Cloud applications to enable ranking of IaaS Cloud providers according to a well-defined, verifiable/audited performance metric, with an accompanying efficiency metric.

With performance becoming a major force of innovation across enterprises and IaaS providers of all sizes, new platforms for managing Cloud benchmarks are being announced with some regularity, with increasingly more features. The Cloud500 initiative is interested in developing metrics to enable comparability among such platforms.

We actively seek community input into this process.
