Powered by PathView Cloud, the Cloud Provider Scorecard rates the performance of leading cloud providers to and from numerous locations throughout North America. The scores, 100 being the best, represent a proprietary scoring algorithm of network performance characteristics – such as capacity, jitter, latency and packet loss – between the provider and these locations. The cloud provider offering the best performance to each city is indicated by the colored circles on the map. Cloud providers are monitored continuously and the scorecard is updated daily. Cloud providers include AWS, GoGrid, Hosting.com, Rackspace and Salesforce.com.
