What is PerfKitBenchmarker?

PerfKitBenchmarker (PKB) is an open source benchmarking tool used to measure and compare cloud offerings. It is a community effort involving over 500 participants including researchers, academic institutions and companies together with the originator, Google. PKB reduces the complexity in running benchmarks on supported cloud providers with unified and simple commands. PKB measures the end to end time to provision resources in the cloud, in addition to reporting on the most standard metrics of peak performance, including: latency, throughput, time-to-complete, IOPS. PKB currently supports eight cloud providers: Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services, DigitalOcean, Microsoft Azure, Rackspace, Kubernetes, OpenStack, AliCloud and local environment.
