Any other Google fiber users out there? Just curious as to what to do with all this upload bandwidth, leaving out the obvious download stuff of course in this discussion.
1) For starters I would like my family out of town to be able to stream our home videos, which I imagine plex should work. Planning to just create a dedicated folder on my HTPC for this purpose. I don't think plex supports intel quicksync yet. You also have to pay $5 for mobile client software (android/ios/etc). Though the server/app is free.
2) Probably run OpenVPN for connecting via open starbucks wifi hotspots. They have restrictions on TOS on running servers but don't really specify beyond that.
3) Cloud backup to - provided 1tb Google drive, though oddly I hear the upload speeds are slow. Others to consider - Crashplan, bitcasa, backblaze.
4) Any other ideas?
Source was a Raid 0 Array at 77 MB/s read and 89 MB/s write seq
Upload to Google Drive: 10-22 Mbps (web interface)
Upload to network box: ~300-350 Mbps (limited by target intrinsic 2tb hdd rotation speed apparently)
Upload to Skydrive: (won't load > 2gb file) 10-50Mbps (avg 30s, used web interface)
Upload to Dropbox: 50-70Mbps (avg 60s, used application, not web interface)
Download from astraweb (max 20 connections) 200-300 Mbps - can't seem to get more than 300-400 Mbps even if I tag another 20 or even 50 connections from another provider (NGD/UNS)
