Inject life into your cloud-hosted applications: 5 best practices to boost end-user experience Feel as though the performance of your cloud-hosted applications has become lacklustre?Here are five best practices that can help you boost end-user experiences, simplify performance management, and reduce the cost of your AWS environment.The Boost Mode feature aims to improve the quality and performance of games that have not been patched to support PS4 Pro."This can provide a noticeable frame rate boost to some games with variable frame rates, and can provide frame rate stability for games that are programmed to run at 30 Hz or 60 Hz," Sony explained at the time.To be fair, Sony has tried to make simple as possible to replace the internal storage, but it was still a fairly involved process that required physically unscrewing the drive, reinstalling the system software, and then copying over all your data.But in the upcoming 4.50 software, Sony is finally adding the ability to simply plug in a USB 3.0 hard drive to instantly get more space, and will support hard drives up to 8TB.According to Sony, firmware update 4.72 "improves the quality of the system performance." The patch weighs in at around 340 MB, and it's mandatory to install--just turn your PS4 on and the update should begin downloading automatically.A recent PS4 Pro update added 4K support to its media player, but you still won't be able to watch 4K Blu-Rays.
Sony has pushed a major new update for the Play Station 4 that includes some much-requested features.The PS4 has supported external hard drives for a while, but Sony limited it to system upgrades and media like videos and music. However, with version 4.50, you can download and install games directly to USB 3.0 hard drives up to 8TB in size.That's really handy for those of you who have a digital library but only own the base 500GB console.It effectively means you don't have to open up your PS4 to swap the internal drive for a larger version, although that's still possible too. Despite its impressive hardware and fair share of standout games, the handheld Sony sent to die may have hit another snag.Content installed on the external drive will show up in the Play Station 4 software alongside anything on the internal drive.
