Best Practices for Continuous Performance

Overview

Cross-Tenant Communication

Configuring Tenants is different from creating Groups.

For example, if you create a tenant for your DevOps group and another tenant for your Test group, they will not be able to collaborate with each other. Instead, set up each DevOps as one group and Test as another group within the same tenant.

Auto-Aging Policy

To track Cloud Costs, enable the auto-aging policy for your development users so you can control their cloud use. See System Tags for additional information.

Images or Services?

When do you use a custom image versus defining a custom service?

UseAdvantagesDisadvantages
Image Administration
  • Images are easier to maintain as it is a based on the OS image.
  • Images may include snapshots and bundles of multiple services.
  • Does not require detailed knowledge of each service and script.
  • Images are tied to a cloud.
Service Administration
  • Service scripts are specific to just one service.
  • Services are portable and you can run them on any cloud.
  • The service may not have installation scripts and face the possibility of the service not being invoked.
  • The service could have a UI-based installation instead of a script-based installation.
  • Requires detailed knowledge of each service and script within the service.

Monitor Service

The Monitor service monitors and reports information on the Cloud Status that is displayed in the The Dashboard.
