With NY3 spaces still down, what latency can I expect connecting my K8s cluster in NYC1 to Spaces in SFO2?

Does this use the global backbone and does this count towards bandwidth usage out of spaces back to NYC1?

More specifically, I’m interested in figuring out how long it will take to transfer several (30-50) 200MB-400MB files on a daily basis.

I’m reluctant to provide clear answers from my own test, as these numbers may be inaccurate in either direction at any given time. Traffic from NYC to SFO is going to go over upstream providers and while we have a great network blend, the reality of a network path is not always the same one day to the next.

With that said, I recommend downloading the NYC1 100mb test file from an SFO2 droplet to test the performance for yourself. You would run this command from an SFO2 server:


You can substitute “nyc1” in that URL for any of our datacenters. You can also test your speed to a datacenter at the root subdomain:
