Where are servers located for real time streaming



If I want to reduce latency for real time streaming, what data center and region is recommended?



The majority of our hardware is currently located in Reading, UK.


What do others tend to do for realtime streaming? Co-locate in the UK or if in the US then just deal with the latency.

I did get a message that said I was consuming too slow.


The 'consuming too slowly' message was likely due more to either:

  • your stream returning more data that you could consume (how many interactions per second were you receiving?)
  • lack of bandwidth on your network

The latency to the US should be minimal.
