Question

CDN upload from different regions

Hi all, just curious about how I might want to go about this. I’m working on an application which requires a user video upload. Currently our Spaces are in NYC and our team did an experiment to narrow down what might be causing it. With a 12mb file it takes about 9 seconds to upload from the east coast. One of our team members in London tried to upload the same file and it took 6 minutes.

What can be done about this or is there something I’ve overlooked in setting this up?

We are using the presigned urls - making a request to our server to sign the url, then upload directly to the DO space
