Web Acceleration and Front-End Optimization in the Cloud [SLIDES]
The cloud is a performance jungle, with layers of complexity separating users from applications. Services are elastic, which means you can have any SLA you want, as long as you're willing to design it yourself. And you can have a fast application, too—if you're willing to foot the bill.
So how do we make sense of cloud performance? At Cloud Connect 2012 in Chicago, Strangeloop technology VP Hooman Beheshti joined other cloud computing experts for an in-depth tour of the challenges on-demand computing poses to performance.
What you'll learn from this slideshow:
- The new models of delay, capacity, and uptime that on-demand computing requires.
- What and how to measure when it comes to performance, and how to think about metrics.
- Where delay happens across the cloud environment.
- How shared computing and back-end contention affect user experience.
- What the WAN and the Application Delivery Network mean in a cloudy compute model.
- How to spread load and optimize application front-ends to speed up applications.
