Which location do you want to see the most?

I just thought I'd throw out a little thread. Which location would you like to see the most next?

-Madagasikara

Re: Which location do you want to see the most?

Sweden is more expensive then the well dressed saturday hooker that you bring home to your mother and call "girlfriend".
not to mention that most of the places where one could afford to colo a dedi or rent one aren't ipv6 ready yet.

To get ipv6 you have to go with the more expensive ones and BOOOM! you are out of range for a LES location.

I blame the free market. Not enough competitors when it comes to datacenters or companys willing to colo in their racks.

We got plenty of consultants in all the strange areas but hardware, not that much.

Re: Which location do you want to see the most?

i mapped the current locations geographiclly and it would seem to be interesting to have

Brazil
Russia
India
South Africa
Somewhere in the middle east (Israel is maybe the most plausible )

Re: Which location do you want to see the most?

Unfortunately, HKG is over expensive and difficult to maintain: DDoS attack no stop, GFWC recurring issue, low BW for external people, congested link, etc.

So I highly doubt it will re-open soon.

Re: Which location do you want to see the most?

As some people have said above a location in South America would be interesting, not to say that I was also interested in the HKG location.
I guess dreaming is free.

I believe Oliver is moving into Asia more and more with mainline services so we could well see a resurgence smile

Re: Which location do you want to see the most?

If I had a choice, it'd be somewhere in Asia for sure.
Korea sounds amazing, but it's not too realistic and it's sorta well served with the existing Japanese location.
Therefore, I would vouch for Hong Kong or Singapore, but preferably HKG. It used to be pretty awesome, the connection to China Mobile was really smooth, although I wouldn't rely on it due to NAT+GFW.
