CDN Comparison: Edgecast, S3 and Cloudfront in San Francisco

Recently we decided to compare CDNs.  Using NewRelic we setup a test on Synthetics.  Pretty interesting data.

Edgecast All counties

Edgecast Just San Francisco

EdgeCast seems to have occasional long hangs even in San Francisco.

 

S3 Just San Francisco

S3 seems to be slow, but very consistant

CloudFront Just San Francisco

Cloudfront has the greatest speed bursts, however, suffers from a few long pulls.
