The digital age, in which all people are interconnected, where we can access resources anytime, anywhere, causes large volumes of data to be generated and processed every day. On the other hand, users are increasingly demanding, expect fast, accurate and reliable answers. In general, there is also a growing use of Web applications, and these should respond immediately to the users, often being rejected if it is not fast enough. According to Google, 2 seconds is the ideal time to load a page or give an answer to a request from a user.
Page load time is the key point in the user experience of every web service, however, it is very common to find instances where design, new functionality, or more content display over-shadow this factor. In practice, most visitors tend to value loading time more than different or unsual features, and also, businesses that need to have good positioning in search engines like Google, have their positioning impaired by being poorly evaluated by the robot.
Based on MachMetrics 2018 survey, we found that most sites have a load time of about 8 to 11 seconds.
This time does not look like much, but according to Kissmetrics 2018 survey, 40% of visitors leave pages that take more than 3 seconds to load, and every 1 second in site load time reduces conversions by 7%.
We have seen above that a web service with low performance will have rejection of the users and with that will have negative impact for the businesses. But how do you ensure higher performance of your applications?
A hardware-referencing web server typically contains dozens of multi-core processors, hundreds of GB of RAM and several TB of storage (depending on the application), all to support thousands of connected users sending and receiving requests, such as for example, a page on a website or an email message.
An essential element for the performance of your application will be the server used. At this point, an alternative is the use of dedicated physical servers, which will guarantee high processing capacity, but it is necessary to consider the high acquisition cost, the complexity to sustain and the waste of resources due to the idleness, which often makes the adoption of this model unfeasible.
But if using dedicated servers is not feasible for most companies, what other alternative is there for your web services to have high performance?
This is where Cloud Computing comes in, because a good solution will guarantee access to high-performance technology, with pay on demand pay-for-use only, and with that your company will have cost reduction, performance gain and can focus on what matters for your business.
Cloud Computing Solutions deliver Virtual Data Center that can meet all the demands of your applications, guaranteeing the delivery of performance due to the constant use of cutting-edge technologies such as hyper convergence, NVM-e, among others.
