Re: Alternative IaaS Providers
KennethB, thanks for the feedback. We'll look into doing some expanded testing. Do you use any of the other providers you listed?

Alternative IaaS Providers
This is definitely a nice thing you put together, but I would be interested in seeing it expanded to see how a few more providers like Digital Ocean, Atlantic.net, and Linode compare against the players you mentioned.

Re: Useful for private cloud implementations?
IT as a service - is getting very popular and helps keep certain level clients of cost down.  And at the same time these vendors can keep up with the multitude of technologies by dispersing across many people.

Useful for private cloud implementations?
I also wonder how applicable this strategy might be for those looking to provide similar services such as IT-as-a-Service or other IaaS offerings internally? I would think it is just as important to create benchmarks and/or measure internal services against external benchmarks. It's only then that you can assure users that you're giving them everything and then some when it comes to performance and offerings.

Rackspace
I wonder how the uncertainty about Rackspace's future is affecting the IaaS landscape. The company announced in May that it was evaluating its options, but has yet to find a buyer.
