Gopro AmazonCloud Storage Location Option

Hi,

 

wouldn't it be nice, when the user could choose the S3-Region where he resides?

 

This would speed up certain things like uploading and downloading.

I've read some of the Amazon S3-Doc and that should be possible, shouldn't it?

Region-Downloads  would be easy (CRR), uploading should be more tricky, becouse the upload endpoint has to be a new source bucket for the region, i suppose. The uploads have to be moved to the us-west-2 bucket for CRR.

 

 

Some S3 links:

Cross-Region Replication

aws sync

Speeding up upload is easier than i thought.

 

Here you go

Amazon S3 Transfer Acceleration

 

You can test the speed comparison for the bucket 'gopro-media-uploads'

I've made and it states that uploads would be 32% faster for my eu-central-1 region

 

S3 Speed Benchmark

 

So GoPro,  please enable that d a m n thing and update your apps to use

 

https://gopro-media-uploads.s3-accelerate.amazonaws.com

instead of 

 

https://gopro-media-uploads.s3.us-west-2.amazonaws.com

Thanks

Re: Gopro AmazonCloud Storage Location Option

It's even more dramatic in mobile safari. 248% speed difference

Re: Gopro AmazonCloud Storage Location Option

Your welcome.

 

Keep in mind that this is an issue for all applications which uploads media to the cloud.

  • GoPro App Mobile
  • GoPro App Dekstop
  • GoPro Firmare

But i guess, that the team knows that ;)
