Latency test between Azure and On-Premises – Specifications

Internet Connection

Create IT as an Internet connection of 100mbps Down/20mbps Up. Azure was capping at a 150mbps symmetrical connection.

TeamViewer VPN, Azure Site-to-Site and Point-to-Site connections were capped at 10mpbs.

Azure plans

In Azure, the most economical plans were chosen, considering our requirements. Some plans were free, some were cheaper than the others, but having VPN capabilities and all configurations supported, we chose the cheaper plans that were available with all these needed features supported.

Browsers

We used Chrome, Firefox and Edge. This was to eliminate browser differences. Not showing any differences in total execution times, we kept using Chrome as a default testing browser.

LAN Connection

Lan wise, our internal network is based on a 1gbps Local Area Network.
