Where are servers located for real time streaming


#1

Hi,

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

Thanks


#2

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.
