Managing the performance of cloud-hosted services doesn't come without challenges. Luckily, there are tools to help you monitor, measure, and improve performance. You'll start this course by exploring common performance management challenges and solutions. You'll then examine parameters to track IT infrastructure and application performance, differentiate between performance and scalability, and identify key metrics to monitor virtualized environments. Next, you'll look in-depth at the purpose of various tools and services, such as the purpose of the five pillars of the AWS framework, how to improve infrastructure resources on Google Cloud Platform, and the role of IBM Cloud Application Performance Management in increasing cloud efficient. You'll also work with CloudWatch Agent, AWS Compute services, Amazon QuickSight, and Application Insight to increase performance efficiency and visibility and troubleshoot issues. Finally, you'll outline how to ensure applications are more scalable, resilient, and manageable in Azure.
