A while back Linode added another data center as an option to its clients. I thought I would showcase a little of the info I found out about it:
- Located in Newark New Jersy
- Operated by NAC
- Linode picked this to provide better performance for non United States customers
So far it sounds like customers have greatly enjoyed this new option. I personally have not switched my site over to it since things have been running great for me so far, but here is what others are saying:
- nwrk reports a 30ms and 75ms better ping time to England.
- tofu reports an even better ping time for him through Belgium
- pd reports a 25ms better ping time to Northern Germany
- simlun reports a 36ms better ping time in Sweeden
- Even Peet in South Africa reported a better ping time
NOTE: You can view these reports for yourself: check out this Linode Blog Post.
