Instance type selection in terms of file upload

Question

Hello Members

 

I have m5.xlarge instance for a website using which we upload video files to server and from server file is moved to digital ocean space bucket.

I observed that uploading a 460 mb file takes 6 minutes to the server. [While from server to digital ocean space it takes only few seconds]

My internet speed is good as you can see in below image.

While other site takes 2 minute for uploading the same file.

I am assuming there would be difference in instance type or may be server configuration.

I am not good in server related stuff. So suggest me the way to proceed so that i can reduce the file upload time.

 

Thank you

File transfer speed will actually depend on multiple factors. What you see on Speedtest is megabits per second test that is done using short burst data between client and Speedtest designated server. The actual file transfer is going to be much different. The factors that will influence it are :

1.  Network conditions between client and server (not just upload speed)

2. Actual distance between client and data Center hosting the server

3. server’s network switch capabilities (up/down transfer capabilities).

4. quality of client network. Some networks will clamp down transfer speeds midway.
