Notes:

  • Figures above were obtained by staff associated with RDSI/AARNet.
  • Speeds generally varied (up to 10% after ramp up) over the duration of a download.
  • The figures above were obtained from transfers of large files (at least 500MB).
  • Higher latency usually means a reduction in perceived network performance (interactive use).

Hints for Researcers:

  • Researchers with an enormous number of small files, group them up in multiple tarballs (for example).
  • Aim to have at least 2 copies of all your research data.
  • No labels
