Are there any guidelines on minimum Downstream/Upstream internet speed requirements for customers who are using the cloud?

I have a customer with 15 users, and I suspect they will have performance issues once the system is fully utilized.

Any insights are appreciated.

While I'll be interested to see if there are any rules of thumb out there, it does seem like a bit of a moving target since there's such a wide variance in traffic generated by different content management users and organizations.

One thing that I have done, though, is to test DW Cloud from strong data connection environments for a sort of benchmark so that at least a comparison can be made.

Just one guy's two cents...

Hi Chris,

I agree, it is difficult to gauge, however, there must be an absolute minimum that is required to properly utilize the system.

Just like we have minimum system requirements for on premise installs, we should have the same for cloud DW.  This would serve as a separation line between client infrastructure limitations, and the cloud performance.  Without such guidelines, each ADP would be forced to come up with his own requirements.
