CloudStore — towards scalability, elasticity, and efficiency benchmarking and analysis in Cloud computing

Abstract

This paper describes CloudStore, an open source application that lends itself to analyzing key
characteristics of Cloud computing platforms. Based on an earlier standard from transaction processing, it
represents a simplified version of a typical e-commerce application – an electronic book store. We detail
how a deployment on a popular public cloud offering can be instrumented to gain insight into system
characteristics such as capacity, scalability, elasticity and efficiency. Based on our insights, we create a
CloudStore performance model, allowing to accurately predict such properties already at design time.
