Three year old startup NxtGen outperforms Amazon Web Services: Report

Three years old startup NxtGen, an emerging leader in high-end datacenter and cloud-based services, has outperformed Amazon Web Services and Rackspace in the price-performance metric for cloud servers, according to an independent benchmarking report by Cloud Spectator, a leading US-based industry consultant in performance and pricing analysis for the IaaS marketplace.

According to the latest Cloud Spectator report, NxtGen Enterprise Cloud Services (ECS) has displayed strong price-performance metric, providing the most value across all five use cases examined in the study.

For this study, Cloud Spectator evaluated performance by benchmarking the virtual machines (VM) using industry accepted tools: Geekbench 3, FIO and Iperf tests. The respective benchmarks measured vCPU & memory, storage, and internal network. The testing ensued over the course of a five day period in March, for ensuring sustained performance requirements by the enterprises and pricing was examined in conjunction with the performance tests.

A S Rajgopal, MD and CEO, NxtGen Datacenter & Cloud Technologies, elaborated, “We all at NxtGen, are excited to achieve this industry-first milestone, where NxtGen has surpassed AWS and Rackspace cloud servers in price performance. It has been our constant endeavour to strive for best-in-class performance and the Cloud Spectator report results are a testimony to our focus on fulfilling the customer need for low cost of ownership and high quality of service. Enterprise customers are keen to save cost at the infrastructure layer to make more investment of applications.”

On an average, NxtGen’s performance was seen to be 3 to 4 times superior to Amazon and 3 times better than Rackspace, on some parameters like block storage, NxtGen’s cloud servers scored over 10 times higher than their Amazon and Rackspace counterparts.

Kenny Li, CEO, Cloud Spectator, said, "Vendor assessment of cloud providers is challenging for organizations because enterprises struggle to understand the real cost of ownership due to the difficulty in normalizing performance across providers. This report shows the findings of our recent study where we provide a standardized comparison and illustrate potential advantages on NxtGen's offerings and those of the other providers in the study."

The public cloud services market in India is poised to expand by 30 percent and reach $1.7 billion by 2018, according to latest industry reports. Worth USD 370 million, the Indian SME market is burgeoning with over 40 million small businesses, of which only a meagre minority are online. This indicates a tremendous untapped potential for adoption of cloud computing in the country.
