Azure Latency Test with AzureSpeed.com

AzureTestMeroCloud

There’s a cool speed test tool for Azure at http://azurespeed.com which allows you to test network latencies and speed to Azure data centers from different countries and locations.  Along with finding the closest Datacenter near your location, it tests the storage latency to Azure as well as upload and download speeds.  This is a third party tool with open source on GitHub.

 

It clearly shows that Singapore DC has the least latency from Kathmandu followed by West India and South India DCs. So, obviously, when you are hosting your solution in Azure, it makes sense to select Singapore DC when your targeted customers are from Kathmandu. image

The above screenshots is an example of a latency test that I ran from my home location in Kathmandu. Have a look and let me know what you have to say.
