Episode 47: Racing the Clouds
By Corey Quinn • View the Website

More and more enterprises and on-prem applications are moving to the Cloud. Therefore, flexibility, agility, time-to-market, and cost effectiveness need to be created to address a lack of visibility and control.
Today, we’re talking to Archana Kesavan, senior product marketing manager at ThousandEyes. The company offers a network intelligence platform that provides visibility to Internet-centric, SaaS, or Cloud-based enterprise environments. Our discussion focuses on ThousandEyes’ 2018 Public Cloud Performance Benchmark Report.
Some of the highlights of the show include:

Purpose of Report: Reveals network performance and architecture connectivity for Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud (GCP), and Microsoft Azure
Report gathered more than 160 million data points by leveraging ThousandEyes’ global fleet of agents that simulate users’ application traffic
Data collected during four-week period was ran through ThousandEyes’ global inference engine to identify trends and detect anomalies
Internet X factor when calibrating network performance of public Cloud providers; best-effort medium that has no predictability and is vulnerable to attacks
AWS’ performance predictability was lower than GCP Cloud and Azure leveraged their own backbones to move user traffic
Certain regions, such as Asia, were handled better by GCP and Azure than AWS
Customers should understand value of long-distance Internet latency when selecting a Cloud provider
Determine what the report’s data means for your business; conduct customized measurements for your environment
