At April, 25th, CloudScale members participated at the annual meeting of the SPEC Research Group in Prague. The SPEC Research Group is a part of the “Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation” (SPEC) which focuses on quantitative system evaluation and analysis. Along other performance properties, scalability is of main interest for this research group. In particular, the group plans to create benchmarks and evaluation techniques for scalability.
Two CloudScale members participated in fruitful discussions on metrics and evaluation techniques for scalability. As CloudScale sees several opportunities in continuing this cooperation with the SPEC, UPB joined the SPEC Research Group on behalf of the project at June, 12th. Therefore, CloudScale hopes to contribute to standards in scalability evaluation in the future.
