Improve Internet Performance by Diversifying Your Cloud Portfolio

  • Improve Internet Performance by Diversifying Your Cloud Portfolio-

    Take Control

    Take control by teaming up with multiple cloud service providers.

    Working with multiple cloud providers will help you circumvent these issues by rerouting traffic as quickly as possible to ensure minimal interruption in your customer service.

    Moreover, having multiple CSPs can help protect against problems before they even occur. Deploying apps and services to two (or more) cloud instances allows them to back each other up, using a load balancing or failover DNS architecture. This fail-safe, along with an ability to monitor the availability, reachability and performance of your selected cloud instances, can allow you to react quickly and change routing issues arise.

Quality Internet performance is essential for the health and well-being of your company. SMBs and Fortune 500 alike are allocating an ever-increasing portion of their budgets toward strengthening their web assets, cloud-based services, content acceleration and SaaS-based applications to keep their customers' Internet access fast, secure and uninterrupted.

But the question is: Does all this investment really translate to better access to products and services for end users? For many top financial, retail and social platforms, the answer is a resounding "no."

From the time a potential customer enters a domain and the page opens, a tremendous amount happens between the business connection and the end user. Errors can occur within the network, at the CDN or ISP level, or with a customer connection. A website can be slow for many reasons as well, and most consumers — and companies, for that matter — have little insight into the 'how' and 'why' of their performance issues. Understanding these connections — monitoring, controlling and optimizing these connections — is the true test of Internet performance.
