Across IT organizations, there is strong interest in deploying applications in a cloud environment to achieve increased business flexibility and cost savings. However, common cloud computing solutions can introduce unexpected costs when IT departments focus their performance related concerns on intra-cloud performance and reliability when constructing their cloud models, rather than the issues of performance and reliability of the overall application and content delivery chain from the cloud environment to the end-user. This is a serious miscalculation for two reasons. First, the cloud computing provider's choice of network carrier shouldn't penalize the cloud user when network performance is degraded. Second, end users have proven that they will abandon applications and websites based on the smallest performance delays or downtime, jeopardizing the perceived value of the cloud initiative. In this session, Internap will discuss why end-user requirements or demands must take precedence in assessments of cloud computing environments and their usage for any application deployment that is business critical, or crucial to the organization’s revenue model, and outline how to achieve this with a “total systems” approach.

    • Overcoming Latency: The AchillesHeel of Cloud ComputingNovember 10, 2011 Adam Weissmuller, Director of Product Management
    • Internap provides intelligent IT Infrastructure services differentiated by best- in-class performance, availability and support.Global HQ in Atlanta 2,700+ Enterprise Customers 450 Employees 2010 Revenue: $244M
    • Our conception of cloud computing has evolved… ECI.com Ecofriendlymag.com In the beginning, we had a Cloud seemed to be the nightmare…. perfect answer… But now we have some questions… i.current.com
    • What it’s really all about… …Your  End  User.  
    • Why they matter A poor web experience results in lost revenue opportunity, a poorer customer perception of your company, and can boost your competitor’s bottom line. – Equation Research sanctioned by Gomez Application performance has become a critical competitive advantage, which has a direct impact on customer satisfaction, top line revenues and the bottom line.
    • Never forget…Downtime “cuts deep”•  Outages cause immediate negative reaction.Poor performance is “death by a thousand customer defections”•  Cumulative impact of poor performance may be greater
    • Cloud Computing is merely a means to an end… “One of the most important concerns for many Web businesses is how cloud adoption will impact their customers, the end user.” – Gomez, Cloud Computing and Web Application Performance: The Risks of Adopting the Cloud, 2010 Dedicated infrastructure environment Internet The “Cloud” (Public, multi-tenant) WARNING:  Demanding  End-­‐user  Requirements  S>ll  Apply  
    • Calculating latency: the big picture What’s your application or website’s “TSL” and how does it match up to pressures to perform? CL1 + NL2 = TSL TSL < End-User Requirements Don’t  defeat  your  cloud  ini>a>ve  by  failing  to  meet  end-­‐user   expecta>ons  for  performance.  
    • Dissecting the user experience Systemic Element Web/App Page 1 Location: Position close to end-user Internet 2 The Internet: Performance counts 3 The App: Minimize server roundtrips Web 1 Web 2 Web 3 4 The OS: Tailor instances 5 Tiers: Deploy on relevant platform DB 1 DB 2 6 Intra-tier: Minimize latency Storage Most cloud providers
    • Elements 1 & 2: Why network performance is relevant On average – any one carrier Carrier Performance represents the “Best” available path only 12% of the time. On average – any one carrier represents the “Worst” available path 12% of the time. 88%  of  the  )me  –  any  one  carrier  represents  a  less  than  op)mal   path  across  the  Internet.   Source: Internap Customer IP-Scope / Customer Portal View – Apr 2010.
