      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

  3. I have some legacy IPV4 /24 netblocks from ARIN. Seeking a reliable VPS provider with nodes in US who can advertise one such block in BGP and route it to a VPS, i.e. so the VPS would have ~253 usable IPV4 addresses. Please quote lead time, as well as any one-time and/or monthly charges that would be added to the normal VPS cost. Also, please state which of your packages would be eligible for this add-on. Thanks.
  4. I am looking for a provider located Central US that can provide a BGP tunnel for transit and turn it up by Tuesday, August 11, 2015 end of business day or later.

  5. Good Slides about Anycasting

    https://www.nanog.org/meetings/nanog29/presentations/miller.pdf Anyone looking to do Anycast and wondering where to start here's a good rundown of what's needed and things you can do. The biggest hurdles are being able to announce your own space or having carriers that will ensure it's routed correctly.
  6. Some fun info about Colocrossing for today. The reason Colocrossing can't offer IPv6 and has delayed setting up BGP sessions (See Crissic's LA departure thread) is because they don't actually have a large core router. Instead, they use switches similar to the photo below as their "edge network". These routers can bring up a BGP session but they can't hold "an internet worth of routes". These switches top out around ~10,000 total routes. So how does Colocrossing get around this? They use multipath between all of their peers. Multipath does round-robin blasting packets down each peer in equal weight. Ever wonder why you have really ugly traceroutes like this? 3 host.colocrossing.com ( 0.652 ms host.colocrossing.com ( 0.708 ms host.colocrossing.com ( 0.826 ms 4 ( 0.288 ms 0.287 ms buf-b1-link.telia.net ( 0.326 ms 5 nyk-bb1-link.telia.net ( 9.606 ms 9.604 ms 9.545 ms 6 tinet.yyz02.atlas.cogentco.com ( 12.793 ms 12.846 ms nyk-b3-link.telia.net ( 9.808 ms 7 tmobile-ic-302276-war-b1.c.telia.net ( 27.436 ms xe-4-3-0.atl11.ip4.tinet.net ( 49.765 ms xe-8-0-0.atl11.ip4.tinet.net ( 49.862 ms 8 eth2-1.r1.ash1.us.atrato.net ( 21.874 ms total-server-solutions-gw.ip4.tinet.net ( 49.968 ms eth2-1.r1.ash1.us.atrato.net ( 23.592 ms 9 eth3-1.r1.atl1.us.atrato.net ( 46.245 ms total-server-solutions-gw.ip4.tinet.net ( 61.983 ms Notice how you have Cogent & Telia on the same hop, as well as Atrato once you start getting to Colo@? That's because each packet of the traceroute is going through a different peer in round robin. If they were running full routing tables they would have a single path through a single provider to get to a destination (since that ISP/path would have been picked to be the best, assuming they aren't doing cost based balancing). It's pretty sad and this setup actually causes random speed issues for some users, especially Comcast customers. You'll have good speed one one transfer then garbage the next. I'm not sure where they "invested" $1,000,000 into their network but it's obviously a lie.
  7. I'm looking for VPS hosts in the US and Europe that will can provide a KVM single CPU, 512mb, 10gb HDD and 50gb bandwidth VPS. I'll need a BGP session, IPv4 + IPv6 or just IPv4. Over this I'll announce a /24 and /48 from my own AS. Please get in touch if you can help out, feel free to message me. Thanks! Nat,
