First of all, I hope my post are is posted in the right section . Below are something i got confused hope you one can help.
My business partner 's IP server are in: Sanjose, CA , and I am looking for a datacenter which give the least latency to that IP. I found 2 . 1st datcenter is in San Francisco, CA . 2nd data center is in Newyork.
Then I do the ping from each datacenter to the my partner's IP.
1st datcenter's result: 75ms
2nd datacenter's result: 2ms
I 've done multiple time, 2nd datacenter always give better result. Now my question is:
Isn't the 1st datacenter suppose to give better result, since their location are closer ? How come the result produce different, what is the accurate way to check latency ?
