How we tested the cloud management products

We obtained our own accounts at Amazon, GoGrid, and Rackspace. We connected to each vendor's product through an Xfinity broadband connection from our lab, or a proxy connection via our network operations center at nFrame in Indianapolis. We spawned numerous types of instances and looked at how each product controlled instances through their life cycles, as well as how well they monitored them and through what processes.
