Does running in the cloud mean a consistent worldwide experience?

Unfortunately taking a digital business to a global scale is not as simple as it seems. While cloud service providers deploy more regions year after year, all of their offering is not yet uniform worldwide.

You could choose to use all the regions offered by your CSP.
Besides the money investment required, would it guarantee a consistent experience at world scale? The answer is that it is absolutely not certain you will actually improve the overall experience.

All regions are not served equally by Cloud Service Providers

Leading cloud computing services (Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Computing as examples) are underserving some markets. While Latin America, Africa and the Middle East are poorly covered in cloud infrastructure, other more subtle regional differences exist.
CDN providers’ regional coverage also varies massively. Depending on the geographical spread of your user base, which providers you pick may end up with vast differences in experience.

All applications do not cope with latency in the same way

Your application profile (and your transaction profiles) can be sensitive or not to latency between your users and your resources.

Defining your strategy for an application global coverage requires: 

  • Precise and permanent visibility on your users
  • Knowledge of the performance of CDN and cloud providers for the different regions
