Cloud Application Performance

I help Fortune 500 retailers scale their cloud applications using open source software

Why Cloud Application Performance Matters

Is your organization able to deliver the best quality and value at the highest speed? Probably not. In fact, your competitors are likely way ahead of you. If you're unable to deliver on the following goals, your customers will happily buy elsewhere.


Delays in response time, or even worse - system outages - are proven to result in fewer page views and reduced customer trust. This directly impacts your bottom line. Every second counts.

Competitive Advantage

Simply put, if your application is slower than your competitors', your customers will buy somewhere else. Regardless of your product, service, or market, every application is in the customer service business. Your customers need to be happy with every click.

Customer Acquisition & Retention

Being able to quickly measure customer sentiment - feedback in the marketplace - is crucial in order to attract and retain customers. How quickly can you collect and report on your key metrics?

Brand Goals

Major performance problems and outages quickly attract negative media attention. Even smaller problems can slowly erode brand value. Customers will become brand champions if you outperform their expectations, which keeps them coming back.

I leverage open source software to avoid absurdly high licensing fees.
