A Performance Measurement Framework of Cloud Storage Services


Recently cloud storage services emerged as essential services with the spread of mobile devices have been developing into sharing contents with numerous users around the world by combining with personal cloud. In addition, they have been evolving into overcoming the limitations of mobile devices and supporting a diversity of mobile devices. Cloud storage services involve enormous investment expenses, but they are expected to be more profitable, so aggressive investments of them are being made and their service quality is being improved. Nevertheless, the performance of cloud storage services is not easy to evaluate due to the diversity of storages and their complex operating environments and so on. It is difficult to compare performance measurement results objectively and quantitatively because each service provider applies its own configuration methods and performance evaluation standards. This paper proposes a performance measurement framework for cloud storage services, which could provide objective and quantitative performance measurement information, to select a suitable cloud storage service by comparing and evaluating them. The proposed framework could help to manage cloud storage performance effectively and it is expected to contribute to market activation by providing comparable cloud storage service performance information to both providers and users.
