Linode 東京二號機房開幕

大家等 Linode 的東京新機房很久了,總算是開了:「New Linode Datacenter: Tokyo 2」。

在 comment 有特別提到東京一號機房不會擴充:

Tokyo 1 is at capacity and we have no plans to add any additional. You will need to move out of Tokyo 1 for plan upgrades, KVM, newest hardware, and so on.

該來搬了 XDDD

Linode 東京第二機房的訪談 (a.k.a. PR 稿)

前幾天提到的「Linode 東京機房擴充的工作...」,這幾天 Linode 就開始發 PR 稿造勢了:「Behind The Scenes: Details About Upcoming Tokyo 2 DC Launch」,把重點拉出來。

新機房在品川 (Shinagawa),原文應該是打錯了 (n 跟 b 差一格而已):

Linode will be opening a new datacenter in Shibagawa ward, Tokyo, Japan, this fall and I was able to interview Linode’s datacenter operations manager, Brett Kaplan, who answered questions I asked regarding the upcoming Tokyo datacenter launch.

目標在 2016Q4 上線:

Soh: Can you say when this new datacenter is expected to come online?
Brett: We are hoping to launch later in Q4 this year.

用的是 Equinix 的機房:(然後這邊的 Shinagawa 是對的 XD)

Soh: So, where did you decide to establish the second Tokyo location?
Brett: We are utilizing an Equinix datacenter in Shinagawa ward Tokyo, Japan.

這樣看起來應該是「Tokyo TY2 Network Interconnection」這個...

Linode 記憶體升級,以及新的日本機房計畫

Linode 的 13 歲禮物:「Linode’s 13th Birthday – Gifts for All!」。包括了記憶體的升級計畫:

Linode 64 GBLinode 80 GB$640/mo ($0.96/hr)
Linode 96 GBLinode 120 GB$960/mo ($1.44/hr)

比較小的機器都是 double RAM,比較大的機器就沒那麼明顯了... 但這樣就超越 DigitalOcean 的規格,而且還領先其他 VPS 不少。

不過由於東京機房已經滿了,這次升級不包括在內,但也透漏了東京的新機房將會在今年年底前啟用:

Unfortunately, since Tokyo is sold out, the upgrade is not available there. We hope to have our second Tokyo facility online before the end of the year.

是個好消息 XD

Google Cloud Platform 宣佈加開美西與日本

Google Cloud Platform 宣佈加開美西與日本:「Google Cloud Platform adds two new regions, 10 more to come」。

所以 Google 在這塊的經濟規模夠撐了?還是先投資?純粹猜測還蠻有可能是後者,因為新宣佈的這兩個機房的位置都比以前機房好:美西對於矽谷的幫助看起來會不少 (之前離矽谷最近的機房在美國中部),而日本則對於整個亞洲區還是極重要,因為一般 ISP 都是在日本、香港與新加坡交換,台灣一般來說需要調 routing 才能配合。

這看起來比較有得跟 AWS 打了?

Google 也放話到 2017 年會加更多機房:

These are the first two of more than 10 additional GCP regions we'll be adding to our network through 2017.

日本的研究團隊發現吃寶特瓶的細菌

日本的研究團隊發現吃寶特瓶的細菌:「Newly discovered bacteria can eat plastic bottles」。

A team of Japanese scientists has found a species of bacteria that eats the type of plastic found in most disposable water bottles.

發表在 Science 上:

The discovery, published Thursday in the journal Science, could lead to new methods to manage the more than 50 million tons of this particular type of plastic produced globally each year.

論文在「Feeding on plastic」這邊,吃的是 PET 寶特瓶。

安倍政權打算規範民宿,使得 Airbnb 變成非法

日本市場是 Airbnb 成長最快的市場 (參考「Airbnb to Boost Japan Listings, Its Fastest-Growing Market」),也使得日本的旅館業者想透過立法手段打擊 Airbnb 這類服務:「Airbnb Faces Major Threat in Japan, Its Fastest-Growing Market」。

Under pressure from the hotel industry and a populace concerned with the surge of foreigners in their neighborhoods, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s government has released guidelines for home sharing -- called minpaku in Japanese -- that could make most Airbnb rentals in the country illegal.

不過 Airbnb 的手腕感覺上比 Uber 來的軟一點 (雖然比起其他企業還是很硬),應該會試著以遊說的方式阻擋?
