New CDN service

Mosso’s new CDN service cost $0.22 per GB.

http://blog.mosso.com/2009/03/cloud-files-emerges/  

Updates:

Some simple tests show mosso cdn is just as fast as amazon cloud front. I offloaded some of my blog’s static image to mosso cloud files.

Pagetest  shows about 10% overall page loading time improvement.

I also wrote a simple bash script to help copying files. It seems mosso does not support gzip encoding yet, nor does cname support.

Some test result:

Pagetest from New Zealand:

EC2 new price

Amazone just anounced reserved instance.

The 3 year reserved small instance price at 3.9 cents per hour, which is equalivalent to $28 per month. Not bad for a vps with 1.7GB ram and 160GB hard driver at all. But I have found some even lower priced VPS, $3.95 per month for 512MB ram with 1 year billing.
