Improving Network Performance


“Performance is an interesting thing these days, first decide what performance really means.”


When working with your hosting provider to improve your network performance, the first thing to do is identify what performance means to your enterprise. Is it getting your application seen by as many people as possible? Do you need to distribute it in a local geographic area? Will it stay on this continent? Or do you need to distribute it globally to ensure that teams working in different countries can access to the same information simultaneously?

To ensure that you provide the best user-experience for your internal and external teams, you need to ask your hosting provider the following questions:

  • Can your applications be virtualized?
  • Can they be distributed?
  • What is your single-point of write access vs. read access?
