I have a server in NYC2. I regularly back up 150 MB of data from NYC2, to Amazon S3, in their Oregon region. It’s very slow.
I ran these tests AFTER this morning’s NTT network changes. There was no improvement.
150 MB upload from VPS to an Amazon S3 bucket in the us-west-2 (Oregon) region
* Digital Ocean, from NYC2 (2 GB instance): 11:50
* Digital Ocean, from SFO1 (2 GB instance): 3:35
* Linode, from New Jersey (1 GB instance): 0:25
For this upload, DO/NYC2 is 25-30 times slower than Linode/NJ. What’s going on?
