[breakout B] Benchmarking the Cloud

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Benchmarking cloud providers is difficult and time-consuming. In 2017 our cloud provider decisions were based on tests and informed assumptions. Then, while developing new features, we began to see results that contradicted our assumptions. 
This is what led to the 2018 Cloud Report, in which we compare Amazon Web Services (AWS) with Google Cloud Platform (GCP). While revisiting our 2017 decisions we realized that cloud providers improve behind the scenes and that a cadence of benchmarking is important for staying on the cutting edge.
In this talk, Andy Woods, Product Manager at Cockroach Labs, will speak about
  • Why we decided to benchmark
  • Gotchas we encountered along the way
  • What we learned from the exercise
  • What’s coming in the 2019 Cloud Report
