With the rapid growth of cloud infrastructure in the organizations, more applications are dependent on the quality of services like network, disk, memory, processor. Due to this, many organizations drift towards choosing right cloud for deploying the application which caters to user’s needs. Currently, opensource cloud platforms (OpenStack, Eucalyptus, Cloudstack, Opennebula etc) are gaining a lot of popularity that establishes private cloud with low cost. But it is difficult for organizations to choose a platform suitable for hosting web application or running virtual machines for high availability. This paper focuses on choosing right cloud platform for network, disk, processor, and memory in running application specific to user’s need. The efficacy of our method is validated through a series of experiments which consists of benchmarking the performance of OpenStack and Eucalyptus opensource private clouds. The experimental result shows that Eucalyptus cloud performs better for Network, Memory and Processing operations while OpenStack cloud performs better for Disk I/O operations.

Keywords: Benchmarks, Cloud, Eucalyptus, OpenStack.
