Compuware has officially launched CloudSleuth today at the 7th International Cloud Expo Conference. CloudSleuth is the industry’s only partner-driven cloud community specifically built to spotlight the performance of the cloud’s “federated infrastructure.”

Partners are the backbone of the CloudSleuth community and play an integral role in collaboration and thought leadership on the site. Additionally, CloudSleuth gives partners the opportunity to provide third-party verification of the reliability of their services. Initial CloudSleuth partners include: OpSource, CDNetworks, GoGrid, Internet Initiative Japan (IIJ) and Teklinks.

CloudSleuth is a free community for both cloud service providers and consumers who are considering, building or managing cloud applications. In addition to cloud computing resources and information, CloudSleuth provides real-time insight into the performance and availability of cloud-based applications using measurements from around the world.

CloudSleuth was created because Compuware saw a need in the marketplace—and received tremendous interest from customers and partners—for an independent, authoritative source for cloud performance and availability data. Customers and partners also sought a community that encourages the free exchange of information to learn about cloud offerings and to solve common problems around cloud performance.

In addition to blogs, forums and resources provided by CloudSleuth partners, the site features a number of applications to help enterprises build and manage cloud applications. Two applications are currently available:

- Global Provider View continuously monitors a sample application running in each of the major cloud service providers. It allows users to see first-hand, in real-time, how well the sample application performs over time from the perspective of end users around the globe.

- Cloud Performance Analyzer is a new application that provides users the ability to explore the impact of Cloud services on Web application response times. Cloud Performance Analyzer continuously monitors a sample e-commerce web application built with commercial third party services. It allows users to see first-hand, in real-time, how third party services impact application performance from the perspective of end users around the globe.

Both Global Provider View and Cloud Performance Analyzer leverage the Gomez network, including both backbone nodes and Last Mile peer collection points around the world.
