Latency Delimiter NYC vs OVH Canada
One of the big questions we get from customers on live chat is ‘How do you compare to OVH for traffic to X location’.
There are quite a few factors that need considering when answering question – latency, packet loss and throughput are the main issues.
To answer the first two points, I’ve replicated OVH’s Smokeping site: http://bhs.smokeping.ovh.net/smokeping?target=USA which shows latency and packet loss to 300+ locations around the globe.
Below is a table showing our latency from our New York datacentre versus their latency from their Canadian datacentre.
Out of 310 locations, Delimiter’s latency was lower for 227 of them; with Canada being our weakest country with 3 out of 17 being faster on the Delimiter network. This will change over the coming weeks as our Toronto and Vancouver peering goes online.
