very. fast. internet. connection
We have a cool one-off project to move about 30 terabytes of data out of the Amazon S3 storage cloud and onto physical disks.
We used this cabinet - it is one router hop off of the main Boston fiber ring and is provisioned for burst speeds up to 1GB/second!
We rate limited the circuit to 250 mbit/sec which lets us pull data from the storage cloud at roughly 25 megabytes per second.
