This paper discusses the different approaches to performance analysis of cloud computing platforms and proposes a queuing model for performance analysis of a web application. In this model, the cloud computing platform is modeled as multiple queues and the virtual machines VMs are modeled as service centers. In this model, the instances act as virtual machines and VMs run on servers, its number decided a priori before running an application. The performance of closed jobs executing on cloud computing platform was analyzed for different distributions. The model is based on the Reserved Instances behavior of applications on Amazon EC2.
