Presentation Abstract

With the advent of Cloud Computing which promises significant reduction in CapEx and OpEx along with other benefits such as Elasticity and Pay-per-Use, organizations across the globe are planning to move some of their applications and infrastructure to Cloud Architectures. However, organizations are also speculative of the potential challenges especially about performance and security of their applications and data placed in Cloud environments. This paper makes an attempt to highlight the aspects of application performance management in Cloud-based architectures and enlist the performance challenges for different Cloud Service Models (IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS) and deployment models (i.e., Public and Private Clouds) and suggest pointers to address them.
