A fundamental limiting factor in achieving great application performance to your end users involves minimizing end to end delay, i.e. from the data center to the end user. In this talk, we focus on understanding the network aspects of web performance. We analyze end-to-end latencies at a global scale from different parts of the world, and use data to show the best case scenarios one can achieve with a handful of locations and quantify the gains one can expect by adding more locations. The talk will provide the audience with the network knowledge and metrics necessary to make informed decisions on network planning for application deployment.
