Getting Hit By The Variable Performance Of The Public Cloud
Phoronix: Getting Hit By The Variable Performance Of The Public Cloud
With yesterday's official release of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS I set out to do some benchmarks of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS vs. 14.04 LTS in the public cloud. Unfortunately, that testing was drawn out due to the variable performance out of instances/droplets in the public cloud that are even of the same instance type...
Re-use the same instance ?
Why not test with the old version and then copy all the files onto the same instance and reboot ?
Couldn't you do something like that ? I know it will take some practice to get the procedure right, but it should be possible to do so.
Or maybe it would be easier to make a separate partition.
