We are looking to expand into Atlanta and need some suggestions from the community. We are just looking to start off with 1-2 servers so we are not exactly looking for a 1/4 CAB yet and we are also looking for a fantastic network.
What do you guys suggest in regards to a data center ? and what ever you suggest can you please list resellers as more often then not you need to have 1/4 CAB + to go directly to the data center (of course sometimes you don't such as Gigenet / Colo4Dallas etc) .
GNAX themselves have been great and they are still working on this problem with us. We are having a problem getting passive ftp to work correctly on all of our servers at this location. We do not have this problem with any of our other data centers using the same server configurations/images/settings and have multiple servers at GNAX all sharing the same problem, which seems to reasonably say there's something at the datacenter itself that's causing this problem. Ftp connections fail when trying to login using the password or fail when trying to enter passive mode. If the connection does not use passive ftp, then it works fine. Passive ftp will work sometimes at this location, but itís rare and it doesnít work for long. Has anyone had any similar experience or may know what the problem might be?
I've read quite a few good reviews about ColoCrossing. Most are related to their Chicago datacenter. I was wondering if anyone has experience with their other locations, specifically, San Jose and Atlanta.
I am expanding my server to more locations and one of my server would be in dallas, TX. Now I need a great data center that can give me 300-500 GB per month and my budget is 50-100 per month. Anyone knows a good deal in dallas?
Does anyone know any information about the following datacenter is Dallas Texas:
2323 Bryan St
2020 Live Oak
We are getting a circuit to one of these two locations, and would like to find a bandwidth provider on-net that can offer us IP transit. We are in need of mainly incoming bandwidth only, and would like to do some trading if possible. A hosting provider would be an ideal match as they should have excess incoming bandwidth to spare.
Are there any FutureHosting customers out there (Dallas Datacenter) who wouldn't mind PM'ing me their domains to test SMTP response time tomorrow? I have a server with them that is showing intermittent SMTP timeouts and response time spikes close to 20 seconds and I am trying to figure out if it is something on my node or the network.
I don't need anything special other than a domain name -- I won't be pushing email through the server just need to know how quickly the SMTP service provides a welcome message and responds to a HELO command. I will share any reports I produce with you.
The spikes are just occuring during business hours and support is having difficult tracking down the issue.
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
We are in need of a colo in the Dallas area. Need a 42u rack, 3-5Mbps connection, 20A of A/B power, carrier neutral!, access by customer and escorted vendors, and most important - Type 2 SAS 70 certification!
Just wondering what problems a listing here will cause for emails [url]and it is Level 3.
rejected emails to some or all other networks?
This is for a Data Center's IP ranges, they have advised the cause was 2 of their customers with 6 servers which all contained multiple IP classes on each server caused this and are saying to wait 7 days before the listings will clear.
I do not believe they will pay the express removal, not sure if they even knew about the listing until it was pointed out to them.
Details from site..
What means listed at UCEPROTECT-Level 3?
GAME OVER. We and our users have seen enough spam and heared all possible excusions why some lazy providers think to be not responsible for what their customers are doing.
We are not just another blacklist. We really know better. Massive spam is always a problem tolerated by the provider.
Your abuser / user ratio is exorbitant high. We expect some minimum standards from soneone claiming to be a professional provider.
Due to the facts that you do not reach our standards, we and many of our users have chosen to no longer allow smtp-traffic from all your IP's and ranges. See above what we are willig to tolerate as a maximum by an provider of your size.
In todays Internet it is no longer acceptable to sit down and wait for abuse to happen.
If you want to become an accepted provider with a good reputation, you will have to install preventive measures.
Click here to see what you can do to prevent spam coming from your ranges.
If you think it is not your job to prevent your IP's flooding the world with spams, we hope that you and your users will enjoy your Intranet.
How can our total ip-space be removed from UCEPROTECT-Level 3?
You can not expect to get a free ride because you are the provider. Our standard removal procedures are also valid for you.
After you have fixed the problems, the UCEPROTECT-Level 3 listing will be removed automatically and free of charge as soon as the causal Level 1 listings will expire.
Every IP listed at Level 1 expires 7 days after we have seen the last abusive action coming from it.
If you don't want your users to be affected up till the free expiration, you can optionally Expressdelist, which is charged a total of 250 EURO per ASN.
That is a huge discount compared to our charges for Level 2 or even Level 1 expressdelistings.
It is necessary that problems are fixed in first place, otherwise your complete IP-space might end up in Level 3 again within a short timeframe
Does anyone have any experience in this DC, or are there any resellers who could help me out? We have equipment all over the US, but want something close to our offices for a more robust testing environment. We're only 30 minutes from NYC, but it's a huge hassle and we already have other equipment there.
I've done searches for other DCs in the area, but they don't turn up too much. I'm open to anything in western CT or Westchester county. The only quote I've gotten so far was ridiculous.
Does Level3 charge the same price per rack at every one of their datacenters, or is it dependent on the location? For example, how much would a rack in the Houston datacenter cost compared to the Dallas datacenter? Please no sales people contact me I am just asking to do some research.
Does Level3 have a monthly minimum of some sort? I currently own a dialup internet service provider, buy through a dialup reseller that mainly uses the Level3 managed modem service, and would like to deal with them directly if possible. I am also interested in their collocation services and ip connections in the future.
We are switching from a reseller that blends several carriers to Level3, to reduce our b/w costs (by a factor of 3x). We are driving upwards of 300Mbps currently.
Is Level3 reliable enough in terms of uptime to be our *only* carrier?
We are running a real-time always-on service with long-lived TCP connections, so frequent disconnections would be problematic. A single downtime of a couple of minutes per month would not be too bad on the other hand.
Switching our stuff to Level3 is a lot of work as it is.
Getting a second provider for the failover, which involves setting up a CISCO edge router with BGP, getting an AS number from ARIN, will make this task too big at this point. Is L3 reliable enough on its own to spare this hassle of a second ISP?
Has anyone had issues with Level3 honoring their discard community recently (3556:9999)? We had to null 2 IPs earlier in the week. The first one they didn't pick up the route when advertised via BGP (or if they did, it took hours). We ended up having to call and get them to filter it manually. The second IP we were able to null route fine using BGP. Now we have another IP being attacked and it looks like Level3 isn't going to pick up the route and discard traffic.
We currently take transit from Level3 and Tiscali in addition to peering at LINX in the UK. We reaching capacity on our 100Mbps connection to Level3 which we take through a Reseller. I plan to keep our Tiscali transit as we receive great routes to Europe.
I have received quotes for increasing our Level3 to 1Gbps with 100 Mbps CDR and also switching to Global Crossing direct which are I think are fairly competitive at ~ £12 per Mbps?
Does any one have direct experience with either of these two providers in the UK and can recommend who has the best support/routes etc? Additionally I see a number of other UK providers are using Telia and NTT. Having had no experience with Telia or NTT I am unsure if they are in the same league as Global Crossing and Level3. Also are there any other Tier 1's we should be looking at?
