A Plague On Both Your Datacenters

So I now have two main servers - a Ryzen 3700X at WebNX in Utah, and a Xeon W-1290P at TMS in Dallas, each with 64GB RAM and ~3TB of SSD.

I'd like a 5900X, but they are nowhere to be found.  I would have settled for a 3900X, but it was out of stock right when I needed it.  It's back now - a bit more expensive, but with 128GB RAM and 4TB SSD, so probably worth the extra if I hadn't already got the Xeon.


I also have a central backup server with a RAID-Z pool.  It's at the same big datacenter complex in Dallas as the Xeon, but with a different hosting company.

Backing up from Utah to the main server in Dallas runs at around 40MB/sec.
Backing up from the main server in Dallas to the backup server runs at over 100MB/sec, since they're so close to each other.  Basically saturates 1GbE.
Backing up from Utah to the backup server runs at around 1MB/sec.

It uses the exact same route over Cogent as between the two main servers, but is 40x slower.

3 I enjoyed this iteration of the tech thread but I can't otherwise think of anything clever to say. Thanks.

4 What, nobody is making the obvious joke about the dysfunction of the courts, and about how this is obviously the result of the transfer rates being regulated under interstate commerce?

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
