One of the most common questions customers ask is how does windows azure perform.
Well Microsoft published a series of benchmarks in an excellent web site called azurescope.
The thing is azurescope is going down on January 15th 2012 so I decided to publish these benchmarks here and make sure they will be available to the public.

Let us discuss queue write latency.

This test measures the write latency observed from a Windows Azure worker role instance while accessing the Windows Azure Queue Service.

Key Analysis
  • For message sizes upto approximately 1000 bytes, enabling Nagle decreased performance. Use ServicePointManager.UseNagleAlgorithm to turn off Nagle.
  • The number of pre-populated items have almost no affect on the observed latencies.
