Re: Vivid 100 upload speed - 150KB/s when backing up to cloud ...

But that isn't going to affect the OP's problem.

Re: Vivid 100 upload speed - 150KB/s when backing up to cloud ...

I just had a look at the iDrive website.

"Your data is encrypted with 256-bit AES encryption on transfer and storage. You can also set your privacy to the highest level by creating a private key for your account during signup. That means no one but you will have access to your data. You don't get this privacy with iCloud or Google Drive. We put your privacy in your hands."

Your PC is encrypting the data before transfer. Depending on the CPU speed, it's going to slow down the data transfer speed.

Your using the super hub 1 in router mode give it a reboot or try modem mode to do a upload.

Re: Vivid 100 upload speed - 150KB/s when backing up to cloud ...

Wow - thanks for the replies all 🙂

To winkle out the single file upload, I need to see about finding somewhere to FTP a file to that's a few hops away ...

I'm intrigued by the modem mode thing. I definitely put this superhub into MM the day I got it (ages ago). I know I did, and I can only access the control panel on 192.168.100.1 However it does still have the "enable modem mode" option ??????

Interestingly, a power cycle has increased the upload speed - I'm currently at 190KB/s ????????

I take the point about encryption, but the server running this upload isn't even running at 5% CPU - and it has enough memory to spare.

Ultimately, this is a one time only issue. Once the backup is done, it'll be the odd incremental - a few MB a week ...

 

As a friend noted, it would have been quicker to get a flight to the US with a 3TB drive ....

Your speed might be limited as to where the server is I tried this FTP upload test and get 185KB/s

https://dlptest.com/ftp-test/

or here I get over 550KB/s

ftp://speedtest.tele2.net/upload/

Tried both those servers and got 500KB/s average for a 1GB file ...

Re: Vivid 100 upload speed - 150KB/s when backing up to cloud ...

500KB/s is 4Mb/s, which is more or less the same as the speedtest you mentioned in your first post. 

So the problem is related to your backup arrangements rather than the VM service.

Having said that, you should be getting the full 6Mb/s, which might be something worth taking up.

Re: Vivid 100 upload speed - 150KB/s when backing up to cloud ...

Yeah, there's something weird, as I can have 3 machines backing up simultaneously at c. 100KB/s - so 300 in total. Also IDrives own speedtest utility says c. 6MBits/s. Anyway, one disk backed up - 2 to go. Then it'll just be a few odd MB incremental so no worries. All good experience when I have to dissuade management from "going cloud" .....

It doesn't have to be either/or. I use Acronis to back up to a NAS on my LAN for ease of restore and to the Acronis cloud for disaster recovery.
