In a fast-paced digital industry where time-to-market is crucial for enterprises, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provide cost-effective and efficient solutions. Instead of creating an on premise setup, enterprises prefer cloud solutions that provide services and APIs to develop and deploy enterprise applications within budget and time. However, enterprises must first determine which cloud provider and services will best suit their business needs. In addition, cost and performance are crucial in driving the decision further. While cost is a major differentiator, cloud performance benchmarks provide vital insights for enterprises planning to move their infrastructure and applications onto the cloud.
Choosing a suitable cloud provider requires information such as network throughput and latency, database performance metrics, storage IOPS (input/output operations per second), and comparative performance with different instance types. Using these metrics, a comparative study between different instance types running on Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) was performed
