I’ve taken to using services like Digital Ocean for my private computing needs as well as my more professional computing needs, for instance spinning up a droplet to use as a game server or mumble server. However for this to work as well as possible I need to know what regions offers the lowest ping/roundtrip to my connection and the connection of my friends. I could of course deploy one in each of the possible regions myself and do a benchmark, but I’d rather not pay for the time if I don’t have to. So does digital ocean offer any kind of benchmarking or official servers to find these kind of statistics?
