I'v always hosted my images on an Australian Server with the thought that most of my customers are Australian and the shorter distance would speed things up.

After reading this thread, I thought I'd do a quick test

The page I tested was www.jadremtoys.com.au/mobilo/

I set up a test page using
1. local images (sydney)
2. images using cname
3. images using the direct link to Amazon cloud

I only tested twice so its not very definitive but here are the results for the first pass

1. 5.099 then 5.301
2. 5.632 then 5.1
3. 5.67 then 5.8

So on look, you would have to say use local images or cname

I'll do a few more tests over the coming days and see what happens

cheers

I assume you tested from the Australia location, right? It might be worth doing a test using cloudfront as well since that's Amazon's CDN - though make sure to run enough tests for the images to get cached at the edge nodes.

Thanks, and yes, I was using the Sydney server for testing. I used Amazons cloud for the third test, and I'll have a look again in a week to see how its all going.

The best results I've ever had using your site was when I hosted the test page and all resources from our media server at home!(windows 7)
