I hope you enjoyed the amazing Super Bowl! There’s another game going on with organizations migrating workloads to the cloud. Migrating applications to the cloud is a balancing act between performance and unique cloud-related cost factors including data egress, bandwidth, and compute time. These costs can mount quickly, especially when trying to optimize your applications for performance. Add to this challenge both a mobile and remote workforce where bandwidth and latency are likely to cause lost productivity, which is itself another hidden cost.
I recently interviewed Jason Schlueter from Communicus where he explained how NitroAccelerator addresses these issues for them and so much more. NitroAccelerator has enabled Communicus to move SQL Server-based business intelligence applications from on premise to Microsoft Azure cloud. Now their analysts have access to the data they need all over the world. Without NitroAccelerator these analysts were dealing with delays of 40 minutes or more to access this data. NitroAccelerator brought this delay down to a mere 2 or 3 minutes! This was not only a huge boost to productivity, but it also impacted direct costs through reduced data and virtual machine charges. This interview made me feel like Nitrosphere won the Super Bowl!
