Production servers are hosted at the Finland, which raises some challenges due to the geographical distance to, for example India, where the majority of the users are located. Lately, performance of the servers does not seem be the actual issue, but instead, it’s the network performance and high latency that are causing poor usability.
It is to be decided where the new servers will be located; should we continue using in Finland, set up the new servers in AW?
Each option has its pros and cons, for example:
Won't help that much but I think it's a decision only your company can make. As you said, Cloud Services like AWS are well suited for your needs as network performance and scalability are great but in the other hand it's out of your network and needs a deployment phase with your own network (which is usually not that hard from what I,ve heard from many customers).
If you want to stay on your servers you might want to improve network performance or at least availabilty with redundancy (Data Center architecture) in different locations, load balancing being based on location but that's also challenging for your sysadmins!
Hope this will help a bit!
