Well, Why Didn't You Say So?!

Mosso has two products of interest: Cloud Servers, which are virtual servers except that...  Well, except nothing, they're virtual servers, and Cloud Files, which is a CDN except that...  Uh, yeah, CDN.  Right.

Problem is, their CDN doesn't have an Australian POP.  The nearest one is Singapore, which is close in air miles but might as well be in Iceland as far as ping times go.  (...  Okay, no, ping time to Singapore is about 250ms, to Iceland about 350ms ...)

With SoftLayer's CDNLayer, I get about 15ms ping time to the nearest POP.  With Mosso's Cloud Files, I get about...
[root@yurie work]# ping cdn.cloudfiles.mosso.com
PING rackspace.vo.llnwd.net (117.121.253.28) 56(84) bytes of data.

64 bytes from cds20.syd.llnw.net (117.121.253.28): icmp_seq=5 ttl=58 time=14.4 ms
Uh.  Well, why didn't you say so?

1 Does that ping say what I think it says ?

2 If you think it says that they have a CDN POP right here in Pipe's Sydney datacentre, then yes, it says what you think it says. smile

We're currently hosted at SoftLayer.  They resell Internap's CDN, and they too have a POP in Sydney.  (Most of the time.  Once a week or so it disappears offshore for several hours.  I've never even got them to confirm that there's a problem.)

And Sydney to Sydney is a good ten times faster than Sydney to Dallas.

I'll be rolling out CDN support soon.  And then, in coming months, adding Mosso to the mix; since they're also in Dallas, ping times between the servers will be low enough for me to integrate things without any noticeable lag.
