Linode open Singapore location!

Linode have opened their Singapore location in Asia!

https://blog.linode.com/2015/04/27/hello-singapore/

We’ve spent the majority of the past few months working on getting great connectivity to the Internet. Our Singapore network is powered by Cisco ASR 9000-series routers, and currently blends transit from Telstra/Pacnet and PCCW, along with direct peering into the Equinix Internet Exchange (EIE) – providing us with access to hundreds of peering opportunities. Check out our Speedtest page to test latency and download speeds.

Singapore supports all of the standard Linode features available in all of our datacenters – like 40 Gbit/sec redundant connectivity to each hypervisor host machine, the Linode Backup service, NodeBalancers, native IPv6, etc – and is the same simple pricing as our other datacenters.

  • China -> US -> SG

    the route is too bad

    How compared with dediserve singapore?

    CEO of PT. Rokok Kopi Internet Tidur Tbk.

  • I feel very disappointed about the route to China on Singapore Node.
    Many Chinese users believes that the linode will use the PCCW route.

    nocheers said: I feel very disappointed about the route to China on Singapore Node. Many Chinese users believes that the linode will use the PCCW route.

    It does - The normal PCCW route (via LAX), not premium direct China (which is simply not possible even within Linods pricing when 1Mbit costs 60$+)

    You complain on a very high level here...

  • dediservedediserve Member, Provider

    We can provide direct China premium transit in Singapore (and soon Hong Kong) but as @William stated, it's a $50 per Mbps premium option

  • @William said:It does - The normal PCCW route (via LAX), not premium direct China (which is simply not possible even within Linods pricing when 1Mbit costs 60$+)

    The Japan node don't have any vps to order now due to the large amount of the Chinese users. So many users guess linode in Singapore Node is another strategy for the linode to ease the shortage on the Japan Node.
    Some people even I guess the Linode will use the PCCW premium direct root to China, but the flow is less than the other Node. Also, a little more expensive than the other node is universally accepted.
    But the fact is disappointing.

  • JonchunJonchun Member, Provider

    Linode needs to get their other shit together before trying to launch a Singapore node though... They used to be the paragon of VPS hosting, but now their support is giving robotic replies and I'm starting to see more and more bad reviews about them. (Before, you couldn't find one if you tried)

    Why Chinese users always unsatisfied with local region routing? Always suggest take 100Mbps unmetered from north for much less than slow Asian region offers

    Yes, I can boogie

    Some special reasons, you know.

    Quality (IPv4, IPv6 is not much congested) to CNC and CNT sucks from anywhere unless you pay Premium Premium (yes, dual premium, one premium for direct routing and another premium for less congestion) "peering" in HK - Especially on evenings and in the morning.

    CM on the other hand is fairly good peered on HKIX, though this links (according to HKIX "only" a single 40GE interface (sounds much but at 100million+ customers it isn't...)) get loaded at some times as well.

    Only way to "guarantee" at least SOME speed to Chinese users is hosting inside China where congestion is not really an issue anymore (all 3 carriers run now Nx100GE+ between the major cities, from Shanghai up to even Ürümqi).

    Only way to really guarantee 100% non congested BW is to host with CM, CNC or CNT directly, best case in the same cities your users are at. (Before "Dual Homing" became a thing in Chinese DCs many sites (mainly with the change of CNNIC to allow own ASNs inside China) used servers at both or even all 3 ISPs and decided by DNS which IP to deliver)

    [From Indonesia] Slightly better than dediserve network, only about 7ms difference. Looking forward to Singapore LowEndSpirit-style VPS.

    Good to see some more VPS providers coming to Asia Pacific!
    From Australia DigitalOcean has much better latency to Singapore though:

    Looks like DO are going via the faster link off Perth, while Linode are going via Japan or HK

  • nice. more and more Asia provider

  • From China Unicom to Linode SG now changed to

    China -> Korea -> Hongkong -> SG

    Still mediocre from Europe and Russia compared to DO SG.
