  • @serverbear you should get a benchmark from the Canada nodes, I'm pushing 300 MB/s on dd.

    This signature is brought to you by the NSA. Spying on the entire world since 1952!

    You can run it on your own box you know ;)

    Here's one for the 256MB (both in Denver, for some reason my GEOIP is messing up & thinks it's in Washington DC):

    Much better IO.
