Truth and lies about latency in the cloud
When it comes to measuring application performance across our local enterprise network, we think we know what network latency is and how to calculate it. But when you move these applications off premise and onto the cloud, do you know the ways in which latency can be impacted?
Latency itself doesn’t have to be the problem, it’s the unpredictability of latency that can causes issues. However using dedicated connectivity to cloud providers via carrier neutral data centres can provide benefits and stability.
In this paper we will look at:
- Defining Cloud Latency
- The cost of Latency
- Quality of Service and Traffic Prioritisation
- The Effect of Latency
- Solutions to improving Latency
