I'm buying Cisco ASR 1000 router that should handle 2 Gbps bandwidth. Please advice on components, models, etc.
I have a vendor, but I'll appreciate any reference, based on your experience, on where to buy one at reasonable price. I think I can probably get refurbished ASR 1000 or similar as well, if the vendor can guarantee the quality of the device.
I was on the phone with tech support at a datacenter that hosts one of my servers and I asked him as I have all my servers beside this particular one on 100mbps connections about the noticable difference between the speeds as 10mbps is fast to begin with.
I was told that he, from personal experience, never noticed the difference between the two because any computer he accessed his sites/files from never had a connection itself of over 4mbps.
He then went on and said the only people that 100mbps would benefit are people who personally have a computer that has a speed of over 10mbps.
I'm gullable and he was very convincing but does anyone have a better explanation of noticable difference (from the client perspective) between the two speeds?
I'm not much of a co-location expert as we do not own our own equipment but a customer we help from time to time is asking me about this. They have a cabinet at theplanet and only a pair of redundant 100mbit uplinks coming into their cisco 2924 they rent from theplanet. Theplanet wants $350/mo along with $350 setup for a pair of redundant gigabit uplinks. Then another $225/mo for a Cisco Catalyst 2960G.
Does this at all seem reasonable to anyone? The switch can just be purchased so it's not that big of a deal. The uplink cost cannot be avoided though. If it's not reasonable obviously they can go back to their account manager to discuss it but I don't know what you'd expect to pay in Dallas for that.
Also before anyone suggests any other provider not an option. Last time they looked around theplanet was the only provider in dallas capable of handling the attacks. Others would just null route the IP's rather than trying to mitigate the attacks. So no point in making suggestions as it's been explored in the past.
Well i need for a week some provider who can setup a spare server/vps with 1000gps uplink , to maybe convince my college to get in contract and get better providers, instead of hosting the college site on our in-house machines. Since the loading speed of site is awful ! So am thinking of trying out for only a week the machine from that provider, and if am able to convince the department to maybe get into some contract with me (who in turn will be than using that provider for getting the server).
So if anyone around wht knows someone who has spare box for a week with 1000mbps uplink would be great.
Please note, no mysql is required, just simple apache, and no traffic, just 1 or 10 hits in the entire week.
I was told that there are some companies out there that provide universities free hosting, so if anyone is aware of such company do let me know please.
After the recent null route of my server ip by providers datacenter without asking no questions nor informing anyone from VD or myself. I am forced to seek a replacement for a 10 mbps unmetered server used for web proxies.
Suggest me good place which has good business ethics and atleast care to inform their customers of their actions.
no Burst net based resellers or anyone even remotely related to burst!
Like for example, recently talked to liquidweb. They have a 100mbs uplink port on their servers, but they only let you use 30% of it. But you can upgrade at anytime. Is that normal for hosts to do that?
I recently purchased a new Dedi server, and got 100 MBPS Uplink. Now, I'm uploading 16GB size of files into this server, and I have a suspicious feeling that this upload speed is not what they told me. For the very 1st day, I opened a ticket and they said that they upgraded it to 100 mbps. I saw this speed was faster immediately. On 2nd day, it went down to around same slow speed before. Since then, I kept opening a new ticket and they said it was done, or sometimes I am under DDos attack..? What? I don't even have the site up yet! How come there is DDos attack?
Anyway, today I was told that I'm getting billed for this 100 mbps uplink, because it's a new service. What a crazy thing going on here... I am so tired of this ticket game and just don't understand why they don't commit what they told me initially.
Can anyone please tell me how I can verify and prove that I am having this 100 MBPS Uplink speed? The only thing I can tell with my eyes is that I can see those FTP upload progress bar. When it's very fast to upload one file, I assume that I have right speed.
But is there any tool or command that I can execute on the server shell, and tell them what I get as a proof?
I am curious if anyone knows what 1and1.com's uplink speed is for their shared accounts? A shared developer account get's 3TB of bandwidth. But I am wondering what type of bandwidth that is. How fast is it?
Does anyone know of a private Data Center with Satellite uplink/downlink connectivity in addition to Fiber?
I know the government depends on them for military purposes, but I was wondering if anyone is aware of a private, FCC liscenced data center with the capability to transmite/host data via satellite in case of disasters, remoteness etc. It seems complimentary for a data center but I haven't heard of it.
Is there any market research on this? What is a good source of information to find out about how many data centers there are, how much revenue they bring in, costs, etc? What is the data center bible?
