Automated Download Service Upgrades and Updates


Recommended Posts

I am happy to announce some upgrades to our Automated Download Service Server and Content.


We have recently been receiving reports from outside the US, primarily the UK, that the download speed of the service was in the 100k - 200k range while speeds from our FTP file server were usually above 1 mb/s. With the growing popularity of the service this was decided to be unacceptable. As of today we have added a new server with a direct network connection to Europe. This should effectively increase the download speed by a factor of 10 in areas such as the UK. In addition to the network and bandwidth improvements the opportunity was taken to roughly double the processing power of the server. This should lead to much quicker operation of the service as well, since matching and processing of the media happens on the server.
