- Number 1: Mr. Linthicum prescribes that you should focus on the architecture and planning. With a cloud system you could have data, the application, the user or machine all thousands of miles apart. An architecture designed to deal with this type of latency is needed and Mr. Linthicum says that techniques like buffers or cache or even moving components that constantly interact closer physically can be used.
- Number 2: Minimize how much information moves among the core components of your cloud-based applications. Mr. Linthicum points out that just like with on-premise systems where you have the bandwidth and performance to move large pieces of information back and forth, you will also have that same benefit within your cloud system, but latency will show up when starting to move information among different cloud providers or between the cloud and the enterprise.
- Number 3: Is the latency issue embedded into the cloud platform itself? Mr. Linthicum recommends asking to test before you purchase. Test with real-world data loading.
