London, 28 March 2012: Cable&Wireless Worldwide (CWW) today announced that it has joined CloudSleuth, a partner community that monitors cloud hosting services across the world and fosters the development of industry best practices for the cloud.
As a CloudSleuth partner, CWW will join other leading cloud providers and participate in the CloudSleuth Global Provider View. This free service gives businesses real-time benchmarking data for the performance, availability and responsiveness of public cloud services.
"There are still barriers to the adoption of cloud, and concerns around availability and SLAs feature prominently. The Global Provider View gives an unbiased analysis of the performance and availability of public cloud hosting providers to help organizations make informed cloud purchasing decisions. We are pleased to be building on our Compuware relationship by becoming part of the CloudSleuth community," said David Bartholomew, director of flexible computing at Cable&Wireless Worldwide.
"Cable&Wireless Worldwide is one of the world’s leading cloud providers and we’re delighted that they have joined the CloudSleuth community," said Kimberly King, vice president of channels and alliances at Compuware Corporation. "The company is already a member of the Compuware Partner Network and a welcomed addition to the Global Provider View. We look forward to having their cloud experts provide invaluable insight, knowledge and ideas to the CloudSleuth community."
Sponsored by Compuware (NASDAQ: CPWR), CloudSleuth is a partner-driven community that brings together industry experts, early cloud adopters and cloud newcomers to foster a collaborative exchange of strategies, best practices and resources for deploying and managing applications in the cloud. Content is provided by a growing network of contributing cloud partners.
The Global Provider View application uses the Compuware Gomez Performance Network (GPN) to measure the performance of an identical reference application running on multiple cloud service providers. The application continuously measures vendor page delivery performance from more than 35 Internet backbone nodes across the globe. For anyone considering a cloud vendor, the Global Provider View provides near-time vendor performance comparisons on a regional and global basis. Compuware Gomez® has developed a worldwide reputation for the quality and impartialness that clearly and unambiguously defines the methodology used for each of its benchmarks.
