Welcome to Benchmarking Suite’s documentation!

The Benchmarking Suite is an all-in-one solution for benchmarking cloud services simulating different typical application behaviours and comparing the results on different cloud providers. It wraps a set of representative, de-facto standard and widely used third-party benchmarking tools and relies on them for the workload simulation and performance measurement.

The Benchmarking Suite automates the benchmarking process managing the allocation and de-allocation of necessary resources, the installation and execution of the benchmarking tools and the storage of data.

It has been designed to be extendible and allow an easy integration of new third-party benchmarking tools and cloud services. Data collected and stored during the tests execution is homogenized and aggregated on different higher-level metrics (e.g. average value) allowing performance comparisons among different providers and/or different dates.

The Benchmarking Suite development has been funded by two European reasearch and innovation projects: ARTIST [1] and CloudPerfect [2], and proudly supported by EIT Digital [3] within the EasyCloud innovation activity.


The Benchmarking Suite is an open source product released under the Apache License v2.0 [4].
