if having servers on the East coast vs the West coast would give significantly better speeds for those people accessing sites from Europe?
We have servers in Texas and someone trying to sell us on a CDN (content delivery network) showed us numbers where it was taking 4-5x longer for someone from Europe to download a file. We want our sites to be faster for Europeans so I was wondering if moving to the East coast would help.
I am really not sure if the location is effecting to speed. I am chooing a provider for colo'ing few servers. I know each region has very good providers (in both services and network, from reviews on WHT), but - from the west coast to central, the latency difference is around 30 - 40ms - from the central to the east coast, the latency difference is around 30ms
so, if I go with a provider in west coast, it really saves me 60-70ms latency from my area. However, someone likes gnax in east coast using Route Science, that's advertised to help to get the better routes.
I dont see any in west coast using RS or FCP. So, should I go - with a "normal" provider (I mean network without RS or FCP equipments) in west coast, - or with a provider with RS/FCP in any place?
I have been looking for a VPS on the east coast (near New York). I am looking to spend around $30, but I need 500GB or more of bandwidth. It would be very preferable for the host to allow IRC connections. I have found a couple hosts that fulfill both of these, but at the moment VPS Empire is looking the best. They allow IRC for an extra $2 a month, which is very reasonable.
I would like to see if you guys have any other recommendations or suggestions for me.
We're running a couple of servers and daily we use an r1soft provider to move the data to the mid west. Our servers are at WebNX and we are also looking for a data backup point in the west coast to make sure we can maintain another snapshot of our data.
We are looking for a rsync provider in the west coast - I have checked out rsyncpalace and their machines are at WebNX and we are looking to keep our data in a different data center.
Any leads on a good reliable rsync provider in the west coast?
I was looking at the offer section and I found that there is limited choices for providers that is on the west coast. I am just looking for simple and cheap server to run on directadmin for my adult site but I can't seem to be able to find one. Anyone knows of any decent providers in the west?
After two and a half years I am upgrading my server that hosts my CS server. Unfortunately, my host will not allow me to upgrade it and keep the special I got from them those years ago.
So I am looking for colocation on the east coast (I have players from Belgium and surrounding areas) with the following:
1U Server Colocation 750-1000GB a month (yes I have used that much in a month though usually only 400GB) 10 or 100 Mbps burstable 2 amps 3-5 IPs
I am hoping I can find this for >$100. Are my requirements too high for this price point? I may consider other areas of the US if my europe players can get good pings. My current host is located at 56 Marietta in Georgia.
I am looking at getting some Qwest bandwidth at 200 Paul, San Francisco. Not being too familar with Qwest's network and as part of evaluating that decision I did some testing to see how the routes/latency looked from various points on the Internet and from our other data centers. For pretty much all the testing I did from the major tier 1/2 networks, Qwest has great peering in places you would expect resulting is decent routes and low latency.
The strange thing is that the one exception is routes from Level 3. As an example, traffic from various Northern California points on Level 3's network to a test IP on Qwest's network in Sunnyvale all go via Denver to connect to Qwest and then back to the Bay Area. For LA originating traffic, it goves via Dallas. Same thing for Seattle that is going via Denver.
Hard to imagine these two tier 1 providers don't peer at any location on the west coast at all? Is this typical between these two or is there some temporary outage right now? Or is there some peering spat going on between them?
Seems pretty silly for traffic to go 3,000 miles between points that are only 10 miles apart!
Here is an example of the route to a test IP sunnyvale.speedtest.qwest.net (220.127.116.11):
I'm colo'ing my first server, and I'm a little nervous about sending my server to the mainland (I'm in Hawaii) for colo. I was looking at Pacific Rack, and also at iWeb. Can anybody comment on these or recommend anybody else? I just need very basic 1U colo.
Dependability and low ping times from Hawaii are my main priorities. Preferably something that Time Warner is tied into since most Hawaii residents use Road Runner cable modems.
I'm going to be running a dedicated zimbra server.
am i asking for too much? everyone seems to only offer 1 or 2TB bandwidth but i'm hovering right around 1.5TB a month at my current location so i need a bit more for growth.
i run a non-profit gaming website and our budget is somewhat tight. we've been in a speakeasy datacenter for over 7 years and the only reason we're moving is because we outgrew the small server we were blessed with for so many years.
does anybody know a cheap dedicated server in US (west coast) or Asia region. The price should be arround $40 per month. no setup or less than $50.
Server is for DNS, SNMP monitoring and some backup data only. Minimum requirement are 512MB+, small CPU, 80GB/120GB+ HDD and 200GB+ Traffic should be enough for it. More than 1 IP, remote power and Gentoo Linux is preferred.
I had searched in the past but it seeams that companies like vrtservers/theplanet/etc. will have much higher prices right now as a half year before. I know there were one for $29-$39 in SJ or LA depending on the RAM/HDD/IP but I don't remember which company it was.
But in general it seams that servers in Europe (NL, Germany, ...) will be much cheaper right now with much more support and features like RemotePower, more IP addresses, ...
Ive recently been getting blips on my private lan with SL and have been unable to get it resolved.
Everything from firewall configs (despite its not being changed in 6 months) to the fibre being dirty and switch flapping has been blamed so being in this position and going in circles for 24 hours means I'm considering alternatives.
The issue would be so bad but the issue is on the 16 core box used for the DB and it uses the iSCSI which means the data is enjoying itself getting corrupted. It wouldnt be so bad if after I'm told its fixed, repair the DB it happens all over again.
So bascially this is what I need elsewhere
1x 4 Core Harpertown 4GB and 500GB in Raid 10 1x 4 Core Clovertown 4GB and 250GB in Raid 5 3x 4 Core Clovertown 4GB and single disk 1x Opteron Dual Core 2GB and single disk 1x 15 Core Tigerton 16GB and 250GB in Raid 10 or iSCSI
Bandwidth around 10TB a month
Id need a private lan and really I would rather a 1GB port on the private side.
To get away from the problems im having I would also rather a dedicated switch as to avoid the kind of issues im having now
The company I'm currently working for is looking at colo space on the East Coast. I already have a quote from Equinix for their Ashburn DC4 - but I'm trying to do some due diligence and shop around a bit.
We're looking at 5 cabinet cages, and we have moderately high power requirements. The Equinix DC4 gives us 32kVA total availability across the 5 cabs.
Can anyone recommend other comparable facilities on the East Coast, or recommend Equinix resellers?
Couple days ago all of a sudden my host that I've been with for years all of a sudden went down the drain. Why? Supposedly, my site was used for spam? Stupid. They are "trying" to compile my database and files, but I DOUBT that will happen.
With an already 24 hour downtime. I am receiving a lot of emails and phone calls on site. I need my community to get back up asap! So I guess it's time to find a new host.
I need a RECOMMENDATION on a westcoast host that will provide me with great customer service and the requirements I need to run my community.
Must handle vBulletin real well, have the requirements I need, and have great customer service.
This is a local forum, which is why I would like to be on a Westcoast Host.
Whats ur take on Wired Tree folks, shall i jump the ship and provide them with utter bunny mayhem (cause i am known to be intolerably insane when my server is down). How is their overall support, and network and performance ? Anyone current got "Server" from them who would like to throw some light on their performance and services ?
