About LiftrNews.com’s Proprietary Cloud Index (Liftr Index)
The Liftr Index is a Frost & Sullivan certified index designed to compare 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. Currently, we provide index values for three Cloud Providers: Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure.
For over a decade, DoubleHorn has been hosting and managing cloud services, as well as collecting data and knowledge about how businesses use cloud. This has gone into the creation of the Liftr Index, but this is only the beginning of big data for liftrnews.com. More details and functionalities of the Liftr Index are in development now. We are also working on other indices and ways to share data that users will want as they make major technology decisions.
