I need to transform a website that has the following characteristics:
- The content does not change often
- The content is made up of large files (Videos, Images …)
- The users are on different continents (mainly Europe and South America).
- It is an association so budgets are limited.
Currently, the site uses a PHP/Mysql solution hosted in Europe. Performance in some places is not good.
The architecture I am considering is based on ipfs-cluster for storage.
Today I have three nodes:
One in Europe, one in South America and one in my development station. They are up and running and the results are promising.
But finally I ask myself the following question: since IPFS is distributed is it really necessary to have nodes on different continents from a performance point of view?
Wouldn’t it be the same to have a VPS node in Europe, a Raspberry PI machine permanently connected and a dev. machine?
Thank you for your feedback.
