C06. Informix Benchmarks on Cloud Systems

Lester Knutsen /Advanced DataTools

How fast will your database run in the cloud compared to your hardware?  After working with customers moving their databases to the cloud and testing our new Informix training systems, I will share observations and performance recommendations. I will also share results using the benchmarks from my Fastest Informix DBA contests.  I found a 25% variance in performance on VM systems running the same benchmark 100 times, making it difficult to judge if a change improved performance or just time variance.  Does this variance also apply to cloud systems? I will share some results from my testing on cloud platforms.
