Not just cloud-native, network and the internet have always been contributing factors for introducing latency in the system performance. A system that resides in one continent always appears to be slow for its users residing in a different continent.
Underwater cables have tremendously helped overcome the distance, but on land, a complex network of DNS servers, routers, ISPs, etc., always introduces those additional hops for any internet-based business.
As far as an organizational intranet is concerned, they seem to work a bit better on-prem. But given the COVID pandemic, we have seen a tremendous change in the way they operate in the last couple of years.
The network architecture of any system is more than a backbone of anything we do in Tech. I personally have great respect for folks who build and design networks and keep an understanding of the same in the general sense of the word.
In this post, we discuss various challenges and cloud-native approaches to improving networking performance. This is part of the series “Cloud-Native System Performance,” where I cover some of my approaches to enhancing a system deployed on the cloud.
