For the last 18 months or so, Ausdroid has been served to you from – of all places – California, in the United States of America. We’ve used Linode for our server hosting for quite some time now, and while it has served us well, it’s time to come home.
Linode has served us well, but it has pained us a great deal that despite being Australia’s #1 Android news site… our news is served from overseas. Well, no more.
As of last evening, Ausdroid is now being served to you fresh, and at lightning speed, from the Equinix data centre in Sydney, Australia. You see, the friendly – and super cool – team at Orion VM (who use the Equinix Data Centre) have decided to partner with Ausdroid to bring us back to where we should be. Gone are our two servers at Linode, replaced with two behemoths in Sydney.
You should notice vastly increased server response times, lightning quick downloads, and above all, the same Ausdroid news service you know and love. Thanks for bearing with us – there have been a few hiccups – but everything should now be settled. Let’s get on with the show!
