PEER 1 Hosting’s cloud division offers better performance and value to customers
Recent benchmark tests revealed that Zunicore’s cloud hosting services outperform Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), offering customers better system performance and value for their money.
UnixBench, the industry-standard benchmark, tests various aspects of a system to calculate its performance. The UnixBench tests were intended to compare cloud providers on factors such as network latency, speed, system performance and cost. The benchmark was carried out as part of a potential customer’s plans to build out its server infrastructure to support expanding traffic to its website by implementing cloud hosting options.
The tests were carried out just two weeks after Zunicore’s launch, before it had established tuning. Despite this, Zunicore’s System Benchmark Index Score beat EC2’s ranking by over 2x. Even with this high performance difference, a one month Zunicore subscription costs $311 compared to $489 for EC2.
Woozworld – the number one social world in the tween market with more than 6.5 million users – ran the benchmarks as part of its search for a cloud provider. The company plans to investigate other factors, such as SLAs, downtime history, maturity and support before making a decision.
