Office 365 Accelerator
Beyond Application Performance
Improve your productivity now, and go faster with your Office 365
Organizations around the world for years have proven the benefits of fully or partially moving their applications, data, networking, and connectivity infrastructure to the cloud. But, even with many important advances, nearly one third of organizations using Office 365 report service performance challenges or insufficient service availability. We have identified three key roadblocks:
Globally distributed enterprises restricted by a single O365 instance
Microsoft hosts Office 365 in the region in which the business is headquartered – so if a global enterprise has locations in different continents, they have to deal with a single O365 instance.
Companies with centralized internet egress and hair pinned traffic
Enterprises that use centralized internet egress points will also have a single peering location with Office 365 – which means that more often than not, traffic ends up hair pinning, adding latency that delivers a hit to O365 performance.
Cloud-based security and network limitations
Companies that use cloud-based security may deal with different security incidents or lack of performance depending on their network topologies
“Performance is the fourth overall technical problem with Office 365, with 20% of organizations reporting service performance challenges and another 12% citing insufficient service availability” -Gartner 2018
