Intra-cloud latency is real. Here’s what to do about it

We’ve all heard about inter-cloud latency, the delay in sending and receiving information to and from public clouds. Think of a remote client leveraging the crowded open Internet, or applications communicating between cloud brands, such as AWS and Azure.

The assumption is that application-to-application or application-to-data storage communications would pretty much be latency-free within the same cloud brand. After all, they exist on the same cloud platform and there should be a huge pipe between system components internally contained. Intra-cloud solutions on public cloud platforms should not have latency issues.

This is generally true, but not always. I’m running into a lot of instances where intra-cloud latency is hurting cloud-native application performance for larger enterprises. Moreover, those facing the latency issues don’t have the knowledge or tools to deal with these performance hindrances.
