When it comes to measuring applications performance across our local enterprise network, we think we know what network latency is and how to calculate it. But when we move these apps into the cloud there are a lot of subtleties that can impact latency in ways that we don’t immediately realize. Let’s examine what latency means for deploying cloud applications and how you, as a developer, can keep better track of it. The goal is to ensure the best performance of your cloud-based applications.
You can read more on this topic and find out why latency isn’t so easy when it comes to the cloud in my article for HP’s Input/Output site here.
