CLOUD MIGRATION PERFORMANCE AND RELIABILITY CONSIDERATIONS

The complexity of modern business systems means that the migration of an application to the cloud causes a risk of performance and reliability (P&R) problems.  Cloud project managers need to consider the P&R risks so applications continue to deliver satisfactory performance during and after migration.

 

KEY FINDINGS

  • Cloud experts use the term performance when they mean load vs. capacity and this is leading to an assumption that current plans adequately deal with performance.
  • Although Application Dependency Mapping identifies the major network flows in a system, it does not characterise those flows in terms of sensitivity to network latency.
  • Application performance and reliability is key to a user’s assessment of the success of a cloud migration project.
