For many IT users and developers, using Amazon Web Service’s (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) to host their application introduces multiple changes to software development, deployment and maintenance processes. EC2 promises increased flexibility, ease of deployment, instant scalability, and a vast ecosystem of third party services. 

However, EC2 functions in ways that are significantly different from the traditional on-premise servers that system administrators and developers have previously used. These differences can lead to novel kinds of performance issues and also require different tools to gain visibility into an application and its underlying cloud-based infrastructure. 

After reading this white paper, you will gain an understanding of the five most common performance issues that occur in EC2. Specifically, you will learn why these issues occur, how to detect them, and best practices for how to either avoid these problems all together and how to resolve these issues when they occur.
