    Need some advices on start a high IO cloud hosting business

    Hi guys,

    I need some advices on start a high IO cloud hosting business. I m a system architect for a finance firm, the cloud environment I built for the firm can archive a high disk IO speed,see below,and there is still lots room to improve the disk performance

    disk performance: ( benchmark from one of the Windows VMs )

    sequential read ---- 126 mbytes/sec
    sequential write---- 129.2 mbytes/sec
    random seek +RW --- 164.6 mbytes/sec

    There are HA on the SAN, VM servers and network equipments too.

    My questions is, what is the market outlook for such high IO cloud hosting? and how should I price the hosting service?

    Thanks a lot.

    Sequential read and write are almost pointless metrics in 99% of hosting environments - you need to consider random read and write I/O (that is to say, you need to consider the number of random small read or write operations per second).
