James Mundy writing about using Cloudant from his app deployed on Microsoft Azure cloud:
When I began implementing Cloudant’s CouchDB based distributed database as a
service (daas) to replace our NoSQL Azure Table solution I had some
reservations about the time making calls from our Azure Web Roles to their
separate data centre would add to response times.
Turns out that really wasn’t anything to worry about at all.
This is very interesting (even if James’s experiment is not really a benchmark). I assume that the way Cloudant pulls this is by offering their service only from top notch connected datacenters. That on top of making sure the service is correctly tuned.
