Who’s Cloud is it anyway?

080404_Dave David O’Neill

In this talk, David O’Neill, CEO & Founder of APImetrics, will examine the impact your hosting choices make on overall API performance. In particular, he will discuss the following:

  • The performance of the 3 major public clouds – AWS, Azure and Google Cloud when it comes to handling API calls
  • The effect your choice of set up might have – a medium instance might be slower than a micro on AWS
  • The affect geography and cloud can have on your performance and factors to use when thinking about what you use and where you set it up to optimize performance
  • Region blocking – does it work: releasing some new information on how location is treated by cloud services and the impact it can have on your services and the implications for PII rules or blocking access
