OVH Asia-Pacific Network, latest latency optimizations
Over a year ago, OVH opened up shop in the Asia-Pacific region with 2 datacenters: Singapore (SG) and Sydney (AU). We are continuously working on improving our network by adding providers, capacity and new rules to reduce the latency.
Below are some of the latest improvements done in the Asia-Pacific region:
- Singapore <> Sydney: is now on SeaMeWe-3 cable -> We have much more direct path (before 144ms now down to 88ms)
- Sydney <> Europe is now routed through Singapore (before via US) -> Better latency (around 35ms less)
- Transit Singapore : we now have TATA and NTT connected to 2 differents POPs (GSS1 & SG1) -> This ensures a better redundancy
We have also improved the routing to several locations (latest improvements below):
- China – China Telecom: http://sgp.smokeping.ovh.net/smokeping?target=APAC.AS4809 (before 220ms down to 36ms)
- Vietnam: http://sgp.smokeping.ovh.net/smokeping?target=APAC.AS7602
- Indonesia: http://sgp.smokeping.ovh.net/smokeping?target=APAC.AS4761
- Philippines: http://sgp.smokeping.ovh.net/smokeping?target=APAC.AS9658
- India – Amazon: http://sgp.smokeping.ovh.net/smokeping?target=APAC.AS16509-ap-south-1
- Thailand: http://sgp.smokeping.ovh.net/smokeping?target=APAC.AS4765
