Letter for Santa


#1

I’m using DreamHost for different things, blog,photo and for developing (git repositories).
I’m very happy with you guys the only problem is the latency I have from Italy.

So this is my e-mail for Santa:
“Dear Santa,
I have been a good boy this year.
I have moved all my on-line photos accounts to my DreamHost account using Gallery2.
I played a lot with my blog, experimenting etc…
I’m using my shell for managing my developing stuffs I don’t want to pay github for that when I have it on DreamHost.
I know that you, DreamHost, are near me. You, DreamHost, are working a lot, giving me more and more applications. Your support make me feel safe, I know that there is always someone there ready to help me when I’m stuck. You, DreamHost, put a lot of effort to make me feel confortable but geographically, we are very far.
Dear Santa, I know that probably I’ll ask something very difficult for DreamHost but it would make me and a lot of people very happy.
Dear Santa, is it possible to have DreamHost in Europe?”

I don’t believe we have any current plans to expand to data centers outside the Los Angeles region.


#3

Why would you need DreamHost in Europe? Worldwide connection performance to the DreamHost servers seems pretty snappy.

Dear sdayman,

I came from Italy very often I have the impression of a low speed connection accessing to my DH account…

Twelve to fifteen hops within your ISP?? Yikes! 200 ms isn’t bad considering that you’re going halfway around the globe, though.

Previous statement stands with regard to our plans.
