  7. 7. Cost Insights<br />Customer:<br />Seamless and predictable scale up ability.<br />Very low starting cost with 99.9% availability.<br />Ethos(ISV):<br />Easy to develop and maintain.<br />Make more money from maintenance(one dedicated engineer can track more than 10 Azure-based solutions).<br />
  8. 8. Performance Analysis<br />
  9. 9. Performance Benchmark<br />Hardware configuration: Legacy: CPU: 2.4G+2.4G; Memory: 1GB; Hard Drive: 60GB<br />Azure Small Instance: CPU: 1.6GHz; Memory:1.75G; Hard Drive:225G<br />

  11. 11. Performance Insights<br />For very limited service requests, Azure-based solution takes slightly longer time to response than self-hosted solution.<br />When more service requests come in, response time of self-hosted solution’s longest transaction will be longer. Meanwhile, response time of Azure-based solution’s longest transaction looks comparatively steady.<br />When service requests increase rapidly, transaction rates of self-hosted solution drops down very fast, meanwhile transaction rates of Azure-based solution looks comparatively better.<br />

Introduction-XLR8<br />Large Enterprise will benefit by reducing cost while improving business agility and keeping strategic control of data<br />Small and Medium Enterprise benefit because isolated SaaS modules can now become fully integrated into enterprise software suites<br />3rd party/internal suppliers and independent software vendors (ISVs) will benefit as they get a direct distribution channel to customers/users<br />
