We are making a bold claim that for local users, Now Tokyo has 10x less latency than other Now regions.
To test the claim, we had one of our engineers in Yokohama check the latency using both their
office connection, and a VM. The results say it all:
Shown above is a recording of a latency test on HND1. The recording is done from the perspective of a user in Yokohama (Japan), using hnd.now.sh.
Smaller is better. Data showing the average latency(ms) of an office connection versus VM between each Now region from Yokohama.
The latency difference is significant, showing a performance boost of well over 10x.
To make this experience available to you, we take care of the Geo DNS, load balancing,
automatic Let's Encrypt integration, and abstraction over the underlying cloud provider
to prevent lock in. Now Tokyo ultimately translates in you being able to offer
a vastly improved service to a greater number of customers.
