Austin, TX- December 21, 2017- Liftr News, a division of DoubleHorn, LLC, has announced the addition of interactive metrics to the Liftr Index. The Liftr Index is a Frost & Sullivan certified index that compares cloud providers in a single, streamlined metric for each provider, as well as a metric that shows the health of cloud providers as a whole.
The Liftr Index metrics include data for the top three U.S. cloud providers, AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure, and are created by Liftr’s proprietary analysis. The metrics will go live Friday.
“We’ve been collecting our calculated index data for several months since the launch of Liftr News,” said Tab Schadt, CEO of DoubleHorn and Liftr News. “This will be extremely valuable to those financial decision makers who are trying to choose a cloud provider.”
The analytics allow users to view Liftr Index data by provider in selected timeframes. Users can compare movements in the Liftr Index all the way to the launch of Liftr News on September 15, 2017. Users can toggle between single provider data or compare the three providers, along with the Liftr composite score. It allows users to see the effect of events such as new data center openings or increased security compliances. The data reveals trends for each provider such as how Google is slowly working to catch up with AWS and Azure.
“Our goal with these interactive analytics is to help people make better decisions when it comes to buying cloud,” says Schadt. “For over a decade, we have been collecting data and knowledge about how businesses use technology and now cloud. We’re excited to put these tools in the hands of our users and see how it affects the industry.”
