Faster Upload to Linode server?
Is there a way to improve my users' upload speed?
I understand that this has a lot to do my users' internet speed / bandwidth and ISP. But is there anything that I could do on my end? Would putting a server closer to them help? i.e. My linode is in Fremont right now. Would putting my linode in Atlanta increase upload speed for my users in the east significantly or is this negligible?
Freemont: 9.21 MB/s
Now all of them peaked at 9.95MB/s (basically maxed out my bandwidth) and sustained that rate, but different DC's took longer to get up to that speed, so for downloads of <100Mbytes this ramp up will have greater impact.
(Of course this was download, rather than upload, but I expect the same to be true)
In addition, is there a bandwidth limit for uploading into a linode? Is this limited by network or disk write?
I sometimes have 50 concurrent users uploading 5-10mb photos into the same node. Is this going to slow things down?
Generally, more users means more latency, however whether or not a measly 50 users will affect things depends on Linode's network. My best guess, no, but don't take my word for it.
