Public Cloud Performance Benchmark: Key Findings + Q&A
Report author Archana Kesavan will take the stage to unveil the findings of the first-ever Public Cloud Performance Benchmark Report. While comparative studies of public cloud providers typically focus on the services offered, pricing tiers, data center locations etc., this report compares network performance to these public clouds, within each of these public cloud providers (across regions and availability zones) and between cloud providers. For enterprises embracing digital transformation, the insights presented in the report will serve as a data-driven guide to best practices and decision-making for operating in the public cloud.
