Picking A Datacenter

Apr 23, 2008

we're in the process of revamping our website and was curious what you, the customers, look for when going to a datacenter's website. Do you like seeing customer comments? Upfront pricing? Facilities' amenities? Which providers' websites do you think are good examples of what a good website should look like?

Picking A Switch

Apr 25, 2008

one of my clients build out their network but are still green when it comes to the switch market that I decided to get some input :-)

Pretty much, we're needing the following:

- VLAN support (standard thing)
- Per IP accounting (sFlow/netflow)
- multiple uplinks and ability to segment?

Pretty much, we want to be able to be able to seperate our network to allow for us to have cheaper providers for high bandwidth usage and then the other side for gameservers and things like that.

Now, I'm thinking that maybe it would be better to BGP the two and simply separate clients by their IP space. Now, my next question is that sounds pretty straight forward, but can we control BGP on a low number of IP's? Say we have a user with 1 - 2 IP's for a single gameserver, can we control it so say that IP only gets Provider #1 in their transit?

I've been checking models of switches and have found both the HP 2848 and the Foundry FES4802. Both are within the same price range which is nice, but the foundry seems to offer IPv6 and layer3.

Picking A VPS Provider

Jun 11, 2008

I am on a shared hosting right now with ASO, and I have 4 sites, 1 being a vB forum w/ 2k members. My forum keeps having time-outs and errors, daily, all the time. I talked with the host and they said that with a forum that size, I shouldn't be on a shared. However, I only need about 25GB bw and 500MB-1G of diskspace. I know a VPS will provide a lot more than that, but I want to move to something that will have no timeouts, and no constant errors. I was thinking of simply upgrading to the VPS that asmallorange offers, but after reading the reviews, they said the $50 package (the smallest package) was way overrated. As much as I'd hate to have to move to a new host, can anyone suggest a good hosting for VPS that isn't too expensive (no more than $50/month)? Or anyone who is on/has used a VPS at ASO, what the uptime was, and if it was worth it.

Picking A Web Host For First Site

Mar 29, 2008

I have plans os doing a NSFW site very soon and am trying to gather as much information about all aspects of what it takes before getting this project off the ground. I know a fair bit of what it will take and I have a web designer set up, ect but I need help picking a web host. I really dont know much about what I am looking for and what I expect the site to do (traffic wise) because it will be my first site. It is going to have videos hosted from other sites but maybe eventually in the future I may host some myself. For the time being, I need to know what do I need in a good host to handle a page that basically just has videos on it. I'm leaning towards Lunar Pages as I have some friends that use them and are satisfied but dont know what I would really need as far as basic hosting, VPS, dedicated servers ect. This part is very new to me! Can anyone give me some advice as to what I should be looking for and and recommendations? I plan on hosting from a hosting company and getting a domain from a domain registrar to keep the seperate.

Picking A Host: IPower Any Good?

May 23, 2006

I couldn't find any good review sites, but lots of places recommended iPowerWeb.

What I want is:

* I want to know who the MOST RELIABLE (uptime) hosts are.

* I want to know who has the best 24/7 telephone tech support.

* I want to only pick hosts that have been around for a while and are profitable so they are less likely to go out of business on me.

* I'm looking for a HIGHLY ETHICAL company that doesn't allow their servers to be used for spam or other $#!+ that gets them blocked. (my current hosting company is currently blocked from some email servers because they let someone using their servers send spam, so now their customers (including me) can't send email to some domains (e.g., aol.com). I'm rip$#!+ about this) ).

* I am NOT looking for the cheapest deal. I want premium quality by a large, well-established professionally-staffed company; not some guy running a rack of blades in his basement ever since he got laid off in the dot-com bust.

Picking Managed Dedicated Solution

May 12, 2009

I am in the market for a dedicated server that is managed, here is some info to help narrow it down;

-Budget is $100-200 per month, can go to a maximum of $350 but prefer not to

-Website will be based on a blog platform and serve 5-40MB videos on a daily basis

-Need funtionality to limit bandwidth to avoid overages

-Need 24/7 phone support and FULL management in terms of upgrades, installation and security

-I'm not sure how much resources video use up in terms of uplink but i'm guessing I need 100MBps rather than 10Mbps. If i'm wrong let me know.

Other than that...i'll probably use Amazon S3 to offload extra bandwidth costs once I start getting too many viewers. If you need some more info then ask and i'll try to supply it.

Limestone Networks Support Line Not Picking Up

Oct 27, 2008

I just wanted to warn the rest of you as to my experiences with Limestone Networks.

I've been calling them for half an hour now, and just keep getting a voice mail box.

This is on top of the fact that the reason I'm calling it to check up on a ticket I submitted weeks ago which is still unresolved (they go for days without answering it, and then when I poke them about it they comment and disappear again for days).

What is really disappointing is that all of this is after I spoke to one of their lead guys there, who gave me his email address and told me to bring any issues to him if I still had problems with the support. I sent him an email last week, and never got a response.

So, if you're looking for excellent prices, great machines, an excellent control panel, and to be blown off my support, Limestone Networks is someone you should check out.

Picking Dual Xeon Vs Pentium, IDE Vs SATA,

Nov 28, 2008

how to get the best "bang for my buck" for a dedicated server; I don't have specific requirements, just have training videos (flash) to play on the site, traffic isn't high now but I want to be ready...

Looking at ThePlanet as an example, what do the choices mean:

1) Xeon 3060, vs Dual Xeon, vs Pentium 4

2) IDE Drive, vs SCSI, vs SATA drive

I know I want 2-4 GB Ram, but beyond that, I don't know what components matter and are worth paying for.

Which one of those datacenters would you choose your site to be hosted at?

I'm leaning towards softlayer, and then FDCServers (especially with the upgragde on august 1).

Joe's Datacenter Colocation

Aug 7, 2009

I'm looking around for a nice, cheap colo place for a Dell PE 2650 I just purchased...


* At least burstable to 10Mbit... dedi 10 is nice.. 100 is nicer..

* About 1000GB xfer should be good to start, I guess I can work with less

* Cheap IPs with no problems obtaining more

* Cheap remote hands since there's really not much in the RI/MA area. I will be going to school in upstate NY so I guess something around there would be cool too. I'm willing to ship anywhere though.

* Discounted/included DirectAdmin would be really nice...

* Not going to be selling IRCd stuff unless it's allowed and nice firewalls. I will probably only use it for a personal IRCd and irssi session.


* Joe's Datacenter [url]

This company seems too good to be true... they offer great services for great prices and have many good features. I also spoke to an admin who said he will be able to include a DirectAdmin license for free. They include 5 IPs right off the bat. I got about a reply in an hour at like midnight from Joe (or just another Joe) himself.. and I'm not even a customer! They do free reboots. $50 to colo our 2U with 1500GB and 100Mbit. It's 25 extra for unmetered w/10Mbit but I'm sure the admin would be willing to just offer more b/w staying at 100Mbit instead of moving to a 10Mbit port.

* FDC Servers

Great reputation.. Pretty good prices for what I would imagine to be quality service. Not much more I can say about them.. Did not ask them about DirectAdmin.


I think I'm mainly just looking for any input on Joe's Datacenter because I really think I want to start my company there. If anyone has any better offers I'm open to anything.. but DirectAdmin would be really nice... just remember that.

I'm also looking for a solution to HyperVM... LxLabs (to-be LxCenter I guess?) is now releasing it for free.. I'm not sure if it's patched yet or not though. I think I might just start with HyperVM for now since noone is going to target us.. seriously.. we are two kids with like 2 clients right now. We can always migrate later if HyperVM never takes off again.

Starting A Datacenter

Oct 10, 2009

What if i got a really good connection to this house i have in Sweden and bought some servers there, is it a good idea and would it sell? How hard is it to get a good connection, the house is in a fairly populated area of Sweden and i have partners who could help run it and do support 24 hours.

But its just a thought and we would start small. What do you guys think?

Datacenter From My House

Aug 4, 2009

I just got a phone call yesterday because my house I just moved into came with a small peice of land about 3 miles away * no clue why* And a company wanted to rent it out for colocation. Is this a scam or should I do it? They said it would only hold 60 servers. The building on the land they would be renting already has backup generators emergency lights etc just no internet leading to it.

Creating A Datacenter

May 4, 2008

I have a old pentium 2 lying around. I was actually wondering if I install a smll linux distro such as DSL linux, is there a way to make it into a fileserver only?

3 comptuers will connect to it.

My main computer and server will use the same internet (ive got a 5MBS line but right now I am just doing an expirment so I dont care if its slow.)

theres a laptop which connects wirelessly using my neighbours (i dont have wireless) so thats a whole different IP and differnt ISP.

and my dads computer which is about 3 KM away.

So I want to do it, store like a couple of word documents

How To Build Your Own Datacenter

Oct 15, 2008

I am making some business plans and having an independent datacenter is one of them. Certainly it isn't easy as leasing a space, and buy some stuff. Some of the things I have to watch out for are network activity, getting bandwidth support, power supply, get an engineering company to design the facility and a lot of stuff.

Are there any companies who handles all that? What would be the specific steps to accomplish my agenda?
