Last night we turned up our initial deployment of machines at a facility in Newark, NJ. It’s operated by NAC, who runs an impressive facility, has many great peering arrangements, and doesn’t block any ports. We’ve got redundant gigabit uplinks, plenty of power and cooling, and room to grow. We’re hoping that this facility will improve ping times for those in Europe, Canada, and north east US.
Did you know that you can migrate your Linode to any of our four facilities? Switching datacenters is simple: One button press and your Linode and its contents are automatically migrated. If you’re interested, please submit a support ticket. We’ll set up a migration and issue you the new IPs, and you can shutdown and initiate the migration when you’re ready.
You can test ping and download times for all four of our facilities with the links provided in this forum post.
