Commercial Cloud computing is becoming mainstream, with funding agencies moving beyond prototyping and starting to fund production campaigns, too. An important aspect of any scientific computing production campaign is data movement, both incoming and outgoing. And while the performance and cost of VMs is relatively well understood, the network performance and cost is not. This paper provides a characterization of networking in various regions of Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform, both between Cloud resources and major DTNs in the Pacific Research Platform, including OSG data federation caches in the network backbone, and inside the clouds themselves. The paper contains both a qualitative analysis of the results as well as latency and peak throughput measurements. It also includes an analysis of the costs involved with Cloud-based networking.
