The commuter's guide to connectivity and latency

  1. 1. to internet connectivity and latency
  2. 2. The internet is the great granddaddy of data sharing – but that doesn’t mean it’s always the right choice for your primary data.
  3. 3. • Everyone can ride. • It’s packed with other users. • It’s easy to find stations. • It gets you where you want to go… eventually. It’s a lot like public transportation:
  4. 4. Like the subway, the internet has its disadvantages.
  5. 5. Trains can be unreliable, delayed and overcrowded.
  6. 6. If you need to arrive somewhere on time and in one piece, you might take a private route – in a taxi, an Uber or your own car.
  7. 7. The subway is a one-size-fits-many option, and there are plenty of ways to improve on it for a better commuting experience.
  8. 8. but it might arrive late, covered in a stranger’s coffee. The same thinking applies to the internet. Public IP transit gets data to its destination…
  9. 9. If your enterprise needs to access massive amounts of data, latency matters – and the internet may not be the best option.
  10. 10. Up to 50 percent of cloud customers bring at least some workloads back on premises due to latency and other performance issues with production applications (according to IDC).
  11. 11. any application using storage across the public internet gets saddled with up to 100ms or more of latency. Even when users have sufficient bandwidth,
  12. 12. To avoid that slowdown, streaming services like Netflix use content delivery networks (CDNs) to take advantage of regional networks and accelerate beyond the internet’s average speeds.
  13. 13. It’s time for enterprise storage to follow suit. Your customers depend on you for instant data access – you can’t afford to share bandwidth with the entire internet.
  14. 14. Private, dedicated networks get customers off the subway and into a cab.
  15. 15. Like a CDN, a private storage network uses a regional data center to guarantee low,one-hop latency.
  16. 16. Users can access masses of data when they want it,where they need it, and predictably experience full throughput at multi-gigabit speeds.
  17. 17. That means average read latency well under 10ms and average write latency under 20 to 25ms.
  18. 18. (In other words, the days of sharing internet bandwidth with Netflix downloads and mobile chat clients are over.)
  19. 19. Public IP transit will get data to its destination, but even its best efforts won’t cut it for today’s primary data requirements.
