DigitalOcean open Frankfurt location!
DigitalOcean have opened their Frankfurt location in Germany!
40GbE network interfaces and improved SSD storage.
Thanked by 1ATHK
Also, fast CPUs.
Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2650L v3 @ 1.80GHztbh I have seen faster, by my quick performance test this is about 2x slower than what I get on RunAbove 2GB for $2.5/month (
Intel Xeon E312xx (Sandy Bridge) @ 3.7 GHzthere).
Being a European I thought I should check it out with freevps.us/downloads/bench.sh But it keeps stalling on Leaseweb, Haarlem, NL...
IPv6 can't work ?
more worrying things.. such as the crap CPU
no lol. they are terribly slow and underpowered.
Is that DigitalOceans' standard CPU in all locations?
Located in Frankfurt but no direct peering with the largest ISP in Germany
IO looks pretty good, already is decent enough in other locations for me tho.
No, Amsterdam 2 have Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2630L v2 @ 2.40GHz or 2Ghz
No. They can run different configs in each of their locations. Varying RAID configs too.
What is it you do with all of your compute power?
FRA1: System Benchmarks Index Score: 1014.8
what you on about? i simply said it was a crap cpu whatever ur name is ^
Iperf tests over the private network.
40GbE seems wasted if guests only have access to 1Gb/s. I like the idea of guests being limited to something lower than the port speed on the host node, it prevents neighbours saturating the port, but 10GbE interfaces would have been fine for this. Doesn't compare well to Linode who also make use of 40GbE interfaces and allow guests access to 40GbE for inbound and private networking.
How is the connectivity to Asia?
IO: 700mb/s IO
DO Aff link
For inbound, sure, but outbound is what matters more to most people and Linode compares much less favorably there. You have to spend $80 a month to get gigabit outbound, compared to $5 a month at DO.
Funny to see people calling a E5-2650L v3 crap and prefer to have E3-12xx config. Guess we will go for E3-12xx configs for our new Europe locations, it will safe us a lot of money. xD
Well, the power of 1 core/thread isn't that great compared to an E3.
Private network speed often matters more to the subset of people who use the private network.
E3 is a single thread winner anyday. 1 E3 core could be 2/3 times faster
Unfortunately these come with a low ram limit (still 32GB I think ??). What about someone doing E5-16xx instead? You can pack more ram, preserving single thread performance.
Right? I really like this location. It's consistently well under 10ms from my MX1 server too
You can't seriously be suggesting that the majority of people prioritize private network speed over public outbound speed?
Most people don't connect vital services like network mounts, back end database servers, stuff like that over public network. Private network typically runs things that do not respond as well to fluctuation. In many cases I would consider it's consistency to be more vital than public network. If that's relevant to what you're saying, apologies if I misunderstood.
