Atlanta Network Upgrade

On March 15 during a planned and notified maintenance window we initiated a network move to new switching gear, which is the final step in separating our networks from the sale of our prior company AtlantaNap to Zayo.

We had already completed the rest of the move over the prior 90 days during maintenance windows successfully.

There was a problem with the piece of equipment and subsequent configurations that caused a spike in CPU loads on that network segment due to problematic configurations between the old network and the new network.

The issue was isolated to one network segment in one of our three data centers. Most customers were resolved immediately however a subset of customers required new VLAN configurations be updated to their profiles which turned out to be a time-consuming process leading to extended downtime for a small number of customers.

This was a one-time move due to a prior sale, which we do not have in the future since the networks are now fully separated.

Cloud is Live in Atlanta

Our Cloud Servers are live in our Atlanta facility and will shortly be rolled out in our New York City area and Dallas facility in the next 30 days.

Some great features of our cloud include:

  • Fully redundant hardware design
  • Fully redundant network design
  • 20Gbit connectivity between all servers
  • Full automation – from account creation to termination
  • Vast array of OS templates

We have many new features coming soon and will be releasing various updates in the near future.

Sincerely,

The Case for Raid

As a datacenter operators of 1,000’s of servers at NetDepot and previously the owner of a mid-sized shared hosting provider, I know directly the benefits of using Raid as opposed to be going cheap and not using Raid. I am all for being cheap, however the benefits of using Raid vs using a single drive far outweigh the pure cost perspective.

Increased IO
Not only do you get the redundancy issue, but when using Raid10, you also get increased performance.

Redundancy, Redundancy and Redundancy!
Hard drives fail. Did you read that, hard drives will fail eventually. Fortunately with Raid10, when a hard drive does fail, we can replace that (without any downtime) and the array will rebuild without any data issues.

Comparing this to replacing a single failed drive, can be the difference of no downtime or a simple reboot to a full restore without raid that could many hours or even days in some cases.

All of our internal infrastructure here at NetDepot.com runs on Raid10 and I sleep well at night knowing that, I would suggest the same to anyone else.

Sincerely,

Rodney Giles, President
