Posted by Mary Nachimov on Oct 26, 2020 8:27:41 AM

Introduction

Cloud migration is simply the process of moving applications from the current environment to the Cloud. Traditionally, companies have been migrating on-premises VMs to the Cloud. However, recently, there is a rise in Cloud to Cloud migration among customers that want to avoid vendor lock-in and adopt a multi-cloud strategy. Whether you are just testing the waters or well-versed in Cloud computing, Cloud migration is a core process in the global digital transformation that's been accelerated due to the recent pandemic.

Is Cloud Storage IOPS the real cause for poor application performance?

Posted by Bonnie Wong on Sep 14, 2020 9:30:00 AM

Introduction
Choosing the right compute size for a VM is always a challenge. In the cloud environment, choosing the right size for a VM from hundreds of instances offered by the provider is even more challenging. Generally, app owners look at vCPU and vMEM usage of the workload to determine the configuration required for the particular VM. In Azure, there are more factors that need to be considered. In this article, we will focus on Azure’s VM IOPS requirements and how the new feature in Turbonomic 7.22.8 enhances the recommendation for continuously choosing the right size for VMs while assuring performance and reducing costs.
