Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Monitoring performance after transitioning to the cloud, part of Cloud Computing First Look (2012).
Once you've made your move to the cloud, your work isn't done. It will be important to ensure …a continued good experience. Monitoring the performance of your cloud systems will help …to make this happen and there are a number of tools out there to help make sure you continue …to get what you're paying for from your service provider. …Let's begin with establishing a baseline and metrics. You researched your vendors before …signing on with them and there is some research you should be doing afterwards as well. Here …is some variables you should be checking regularly for fluctuations.…
Number one; connection speed, which is the speed at which you connect to the cloud. This …is actually an analysis of your Internet Service Provider not your cloud vendor, but you do …want to see a consistent number here as opposed to fluctuating connection speeds with high and low spikes. …Another variable is the datastore delete time, or how long it takes to delete the datastore. …You'll want to be checking datastore read times as well, or how long it takes to read data. …
David also presents an overview of migration and common cloud technologies as you contemplate a move to the cloud, including Google Apps, Microsoft Windows Live, and more. The final chapter outlines how to evaluate the ongoing effectiveness of the cloud for your business.
