Performance Lessons for the Enterprise
By Andy Still
Released: June 2016
If you’re planning your company’s first foray into the cloud, you’ve no doubt heard many compelling reasons for making the move. But one area companies often overlook is Internet performance: optimizing the route that data takes across the public Internet to reach your systems, a stretch known as the middle mile.
In this report, author and middle-mile expert Andy Still maps your cloud journey from initial preparation to having your own highly performant cloud-based system. At each stage, you’ll learn the best methods for optimizing Internet performance by understanding the nature of your application, the characteristics of your end users, and the way various cloud providers can connect one to the other.
Not all cloud vendors are created equally and, despite what they’d like you to think, it’s not necessary to tie yourself to a single provider. Pick up a copy of this report and learn why the best Internet performance may involve using a combination of components from multiple cloud vendors.
Andy Still has worked in the web industry since 1998, leading development on some of the highest traffic sites in the UK. He co-founded Intechnica, a vendor independent IT performance consultancy to focus on helping companies improve performance on their IT systems, particularly websites.
