Interoute Claims Fastest Transatlantic Cloud

Interoute claims that its global cloud platform, Interoute Virtual Data Centre (VDC), delivers nearly double the throughput across the Atlantic than the next best cloud provider, as evidenced by research conducted by Cloud Spectator.

The research from March 2015 compared Interoute VDC with three leading cloud providers (Amazon AWS, Rackspace and Microsoft Azure), testing network throughput and latency between Europe and USA and between providers' European data centres. In all of the comparisons, Interoute VDC demonstrated the highest throughputs and lowest latencies.

Key research findings:

Transatlantic:

  • Interoute VDC delivered 1.1 Gbps throughput, which was 96% better than Amazon AWS, 141% better than Rackspace, and 195% better than Microsoft Azure.
  • Interoute VDC had the lowest latency, between its London and New York data centres. Interoute was the only provider in the comparison with both of its transatlantic data centres located in key business cities, meaning that VDC users can access compute and storage resources, and deliver data to their customers, from two centres of European and US business activity. 

Within Europe:

  • Interoute VDC achieved 1.3 Gbps throughput between its London and Amsterdam data centres. This was 52% better than Amazon AWS (Dublin – Frankfurt) and 73% better than Microsoft Azure (Dublin - Amsterdam)
  • Interoute VDC achieved a latency of 6 milliseconds between London and Amsterdam, over three times better than the inter-data centre latency of the comparison providers.

“This independent report confirms and validates our networked cloud strategy. Building cloud into a world class network provides our customers with significantly better performance when compared with the traditional cloud models. Businesses looking to grow between Europe and US should definitely be looking at the importance of these network characteristics for their ability to shift workloads into the cloud. Interoute’s fourteen global zones are all built into high performance network with over 300 interconnects in Europe alone. So wherever you choose to put your data and connect to us, your services are typically going to perform faster on Interoute than on many other global providers,” stated Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute.
