Performance Matters – Even when you don’t realise it.

Sep 14, 2020

When customers migrate their workloads onto our platform, its often due to ageing hardware and the reluctance for capital expenditure to replace that hardware, which ultimately forms part of their cloud journey roadmap.

I have migrated a number of clients from various levels of on-premise infrastructure onto the vBridge platform, and there has been a common theme off the back of the migrations. Performance issues… What performance issues… They’ve gone!

Nine out of ten times this is as a result of the underlying high performance storage arrays we run, giving the applications the “go-go-juice” they need, and we often receive direct feedback from the engineering team, application owners and end users via the grapevine on how responsive the systems are. This is also attributed to the care and attention our team take to keep our platform fine-tuned and up to date with technology that benefit our clients.

Often enough on-premise VMs are overprovisioned on compute and memory, and typically this is to counter performance issues in the storage department. We see this first hand post migration from the sampling analytics we pull from the VMs. We then look to “right size” the compute and memory specs once they’ve been running on our platform for a number of weeks. In this way we can help clients realize cost savings while delivering greater efficiencies through applications and systems that perform better.

Customers can rest assure that workloads that run on our platform will have the resources they need to stretch their legs and perform at their best!
