It was fine > 2 months ago (only the odd issue once in whole of last year), but recently it's getting abysmal.
Running a ping tool, I see we're getting and average 250ms ping time between the last NZ and first US hop.
What we've sort of managed to do is basically get someone in the US office (we're only 4 people globally) to set up a spare laptop and we use Join.Me to do remote screen share and then RDP from that box to the client servers as best we can.
Surprisingly this works 'ok' - not great but ok.
I know NZ is pretty poor for international connectivity. So I was wondering if the I could rent a server say in OZ or the US/Canada or perhaps Japan/Singapore and then use the same technique. I suggest OZ as perhaps they have better links than we we do.
Logically it seems sound, but like all things enterprise networky I'm sure I'm missing something not obvious to me.
Also we're in the process of buying new permanent box for the US office, but I was thinking about perhaps we could rent some virtual cloud machines to do the same thing.
Sorry for the rambling.
