Lots of gateway errors and gateway timeouts. Spaces is not reliable (yet).

I just tested it and it is pretty slow if you have multiple connections. A page of pictures (thumbs) is much faster with block storage. With movies (bigger files) the speed is good though.

Ah. I was just thinking to move a couple of TBs from S3 to DO Spaces but it seems it’s not ready to handle good amount of traffic. Hope they sort out the speed issues, not much use of it otherwise.
