So the results are pretty good and we will proceed with the switch-over but....

The 'hacks' to our shopping cart have 'broken' a couple of other things in there on the Admin side. So we have to back out of Amazon for a few hours and try and fix those issues before continuing the migration. Stay tuned

Many thanks to everyone for your feedback. BTW there still seem to be some routing issues with Amazon S3 in Ireland. I'd love to hear from anyone in IE who can test the C2PS download...

OK so the available LR4 files are now up on Amazon. I'd appreciate again if a few people would try a download and post their location, speed and comments

Hi Chris,

Just down loaded from home connection LR4_13-1 (219MB) at 1.9MB/per sec.  Total time was just at 2 minutes.
Now I am on AT&T Uverse with download 18Mbps and upload 1.4Mbps.
Let add that I am on a MacBook Pro 2.66 (June 2009) with 8GB DDR3 Ram with a 500GB 7200rpm Hard Drive.

Best,

Stu

Many thanks again for all of the input. It has given us the confidence to migrate everything over to Amazon's S3 - but over time. A lot of our content will still come through the regular Store server for the next several weeks.
 
Right now only LR4 & C2PS are coming off AmazonS3

I will be publishing the next videos of LR4 in less than five days and will do a mass email to all customers. That will be the acid test to see if a few thousand hits on the same download file will still give acceptable rates. But don't go to the Store for new LR4 stuff yet, I will post here when it's available (and prior to the mass email)

In the UK I downloaded LR4_11.zip at 807 kbytes/s which is slightly less than half my maximum download speed.

In comparison c2ps-30.zip from Camera to Print and Screen (a similar sized file) downloaded at 831 kbytes/sec within half an hour of the LR4 download.

Therefore S3 seems to be slightly slower than your normal server in the UK when there is not a 'feeding frenzy' for new downloads - the download speed for the LR file was much slower when I download it in the first 48 hours after issue, unfortunately I didn't note the speed.

I obviously don't know how Amazon S3 will stand up to large numbers of simultaneous connections but the test I just carried out, while you were posting, showed a worse performance for S3 than your normal server for a UK download. The test was carried out between about 8.30 pm and 9 pm local time on a Friday evening. If it is of any use to you I could retest at a different time of day.

Regards
Nigel

PS a slightly slower download for your legacy files is not a personal concern, as I have either already bought and downloaded all the LL videos or for the earlier LLVJs have the DVDs.

Brisbane, Australia - Getting mostly 812 kB/sec for LR4_11 (270 MB) so it took 5-6 mins.
I am very happy with that.
(My connection is ADSL2+ , 6.5 Mbit/sec download)
Looking forward to the next instalment!

Chris,

Just finished downloading LR4 14. Took between 40 and 45 minutes. The lowest transfer speed seen was about 50KB/sec, highest was over 200KB/sec.

On the basis of my download of C2ps from Amazon, I'm not terribly surprised by this performance. It is significantly better than the experience downloading the LR4 basic files which I did after the announcement that the rush was over.

I was able to get both videos at more or less my maximum connection speed - about 150 - 160 KBps.  I am on 1.5mbps DSL connection with OS X SnowLeopard and Firefox 10 in SW Washington state.

Oddly enough, when I started it settled down to a roaring 15 KBps with time estimated at over 3 hours.  I killed the download, rebooted the DSL modem and tried again, and promptly went up to about 150ish KBps.

In Melbourne, Australia.

Downloads ran at around 300kb/s. About 10 minutes for each file.  That's my Sunday morning sorted.

Cheers,
Alan.

Going slow as an elderly canine in Canberra, Australia, at the moment - 17 Kb/s. I am assuming that I don't have to do anything special to get the Amazon server, just click on the files on my  order information page - or am I mistaken about that? Is there some different path to using the Amazon server?
