There is a new app, called CloudSizer, that can help organizations size up the workloads running on physical servers to see what it would take to move onto public clouds. As reported on Channel Register, server research specialists, Ideas International, has spent years coming up with its Relative Performance Estimate ranking; this allows the performance of different servers and their price/performance running various workloads.


 

"CloudSizer can show you pricing in US dollars, British pounds, or Australian dollars and covers cloud providers in North America, Europe, and the Asia/Pacific region. In the United States, the tool can size up public clouds run by Amazon, Elastic Hosts, GoGrid, Gandi.net, Hosting.com, IBM, Linode, NewServers, Penguin Computing, Rackspace Hosting, ReliaCloud, SoftLayer, Storm on Demand, Terremark (now part of Verizon), Voxel, and Zerigo.

"It can do capacity planning and pricing for Amazon, Elastic Hosts, Gandi.net, Linode, Rackspace, and Voxel in Europe, and Amazon, Cloud Central, Linode, and Voxel in Asia. Once you pick one or more public cloud, you tell the app about your current physical server in terms of its make and model, its memory capacity, its duty cycle (per cent of the day the machine is not idle), and its peak utilization."
