Application Workload Demand

Definition - What does Application Workload Demand mean?

Application workload demand is the demand placed on a system by an application. IT professionals use strategies such as workload tiering, workload balancing or workload management to anticipate and deal with application workload demand.

Techopedia explains Application Workload Demand

Part of dealing with application workload demand may include figuring out whether to migrate certain work to a cloud service or to control a workload across a data center/cloud environment. Application workload handling tools may also be able to source cloud resources on demand, in order to help with changing workload levels. In general, these kinds of tools help with handling dynamic input/output requirements and controlling or minimizing latency, which is the lag time of a system to complete tasks.
