I was out trolling on the net this weekend and I ran across a neat tool/site called CloudSleuth, which was put together by Compuware. Now I have seen a few other tools out there that look at cloud computing performance, most on an individual basis. However, CloudSleuth gives you information about other cloud environments so you can do a comparison and provides you with a pretty good graphic interface.
Aside from being a tool for investigating performance, CloudSleuth is attempting to become a community and exchange for information about cloud technologies. According to the CloudSleuth site they provide “…a collective exchange of materials, strategies and best practices, CloudSleuth debunks the myths of cloud computing.”
As stated on the CloudSleuth site, this community is a “…means to foster collaboration, maintain constant, relevant communication and feedback on the subject…” There are a number of white papers, document repositories, listing of events, blogs, polls, and even a software catalog. Right now, there is not as much content or interaction going on as I would like to see, but I think it will get there.
Take a look and let me know what you think.
