Given the proliferation of the public cloud within the enterprise architecture and the dominance of Big 3 - AWS, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure, this session will present an agnostic, first-of-its-kind comparison if the performance of the three major public cloud vendors.

Ultimately, it is important for IT leaders to understand that cloud architectures are complex and not to be taken lightly. Enterprises heavily relying on the public cloud, spanning multiple AZs, regions and providers should arm themselves with the right data to understand performance and changes over time.

Overall, the collected performance data indicates comparable and robust network performance across all three cloud providers, yet geographical exceptions persist. Cloud connectivity architectures vary between the three providers, with corresponding differences in the level of Internet exposure when connecting to the cloud.

Given the globally distributed nature of customers, their client base and infrastructure, plus the inherently variable nature of the Internet, monitoring global performance of cloud providers is imperative to determining how their application or service performs on a global scale.

Relying on the cloud means relying on the Internet -- that black box shrouded in a cloak of invisibility that no enterprise owns or controls -- yet they rely on it for outcomes. And as multi-cloud increasingly becomes the norm, visibility issues are significantly compounded. Whether an enterprise is deploying GSuite and wants to monitor performance across branch offices, or if they want to deploy their own applications hosted on GCP and ensure they have the most control possible over the end-user experience, visibility into how these applications are traversing the Internet across multiple service providers is nothing short of critical for ensuring exceptional digital experiences.
