How to Identify and Solve Poor Cloud Performance Problems

Meta: Why do you have poor cloud performance issues? Discover the cause of these problems, and you enable to undertake some solutions as well.


For those who often use traditional IT system probably get stuff in the cloud-based system for the first time of innovation. Do you know why?

They do not have a solid understanding of the cloud computing; especially a public cloud-based system. Then, they think that cloud-based system has some black holes when using. The truth is that they cannot detect where to pay attention to first and what tools to choose and use thereafter.

Step-by-step guide to identifying poor performance 

Cloud-based performance is much more difficult than you may think as this is a complex system. Fortunately, follow these below steps to help you find and fix main reasons.

Step 1: Check all the infrastructure systems first 

The infrastructure systems include the databases and the applications to know the causes. You can use some analysis tools and systems to identify CPU and storage utilization as well. These are the poorest performance.

When using cloud computing, you can allocate more CPUs and storage to expand the size of these in the long-term of using. Though a public cloud can increase the size to meet your needs, this is not the end of a story. You should arrange and provide more servers to control extra workload as soon as possible.

Step 2: Observe the application's performance

There are several handling tools which can try to use for applications. So, you should use one or more tools together. Applications are the major cause for poor performance because they may not have been controlled to use some native features of cloud-based workloads. Therefore, they can be very ineffective at using the infrastructure.

Step 3: Find out other reasons for poor performance troubles 

After checking the main causes, it is time to find out other elements. Firstly, you should check the security system that encryption services probably stabilize storage and computing.
Then, you need to check the governance services again. Even the monitor services will show you about performance problems for the first time. These tools may oversaturate the infrastructure.

Step 4: Check other networks including bandwidth the inside and outside of cloud-based system

You probably consume public cloud services is the open internet, so you often compete with other packages.

To test if it is a major cause of your poor performance, you need to do some tasks such as applying ping tests, using some main tests to discover what trouble in the cloud-based system.

Step 5: Control databases carefully 

If you manage your databases in a hybrid cloud, this is also a daunting task because databases ought to perform in private and public cloud. Governance security levels and wide area network limitations can make harder issues to solve when users may access these databases.

On the flip side, you should decide which databases to store in the cloud-based system and which data needs to regularly updated. When moving large amounts of the database to the public cloud, you should also use disks and backups to minimize cloud performance problems.

Step 6: Create multi-cloud applications to increase the cloud-based workloads 

In general, multi-cloud applications are made to separate elements which are called componentization. These apps make smooth workflow which passes multiple providers. Make a performance standard to discover certain issues easily when they arise.

Then, you can use cloud management logs to find out the root of the cause. Please note that the problem is not with a single provider and you have to look at the application’s workflow through the multiple-cloud structures.

Step 7: Look at the user’s browsers and computers 

Sometimes, there are lots of troubles with the user’s browsers which affect the cloud-based system.
Some malware, big issues, and other stuff which comes from the Window PCs and Macs can cause the poor performance. Do not miss out your browsers and computer categories when above steps are clean.

Also, you can hire experienced technology team to support or find reputation outsources depending on your budget and your databases.


By following those steps, you enable to diagnose the root issues of poor performance in your cloud-based workloads. Also, you can apply my recommendation steps to other kinds of cloud system such as private cloud and hybrid cloud as well. Please carry in mind that application workflow plays a key role in cloud-based performance.
