See the Performance Data
When you're running infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) applications, price and performance matter. A low-cost cloud service isn't useful if it's not powerful enough to run your apps with the performance you need.

VMware commissioned benchmarking tests performed by Principled Technologies, who determined that vCloud Air delivers twice the compute power of Microsoft Azure and three times the storage performance of Amazon AWS. Read more about the performance comparisons.
