Cloud may not be the panacea IT practitioners hope it will be. If end-user customers become disenchanted with application performance at the edge, latency will prove to be the Achilles Heel of Cloud. Find out why cloud computing should be part of a total solution to address IT objectives, while simultaneously improving the customer experience.
Cloud computing represents a compelling and proven solution for IT departments to increase flexibility and cut costs typically associated with the deployment of new platforms. However, the consideration of cloud computing should not be limited to this view and should take into consideration the entire system solution – from Cloud to end-user.
Selection of a cloud solution in this regard can yield benefits for IT while addressing requirements for application performance by the end-user. Use of redundant cloud architecture, redundant data center infrastructure and an innovative route-optimization technology can provide the required performance and availability of applications. Additionally, use of technologies beyond the cloud edge such as TCP acceleration and content delivery networks can further improve content delivery to end-users.
