June 20 – Moved to Amazon Sydney

Written by James McDonald

June 21, 2020

So for a while I have been using a Digital Ocean droplet based in Singapore and it is cheaper than an AWS EC2 Instance

However I did some tests and found that ping times to Sydney from Melbourne were ~20ms and to Singapore ~400ms

I noticed some lag problems with a web app I am using for a client so to improve I have migrated back to Amazon

There also seemed to be performance issues with the DO droplet.

So back to AWS
