Enterprise DDoS Protection - $50/mo per IP

We offer a monthly DDoS protection service for $50 per IP Address that uniquely offers three layers of detection and protection. The service is available to all of our dedicated server and cloud clients. It will protect you from an attack up to 10Gbps and 6 million packets per second. To sign up, simply speak to an Account Specialist or upgrade directly through the Security Center in OnePortal.
Scant little on details, big on PR/marketing hype.

Good to have options though.

Reseller Black Lotus adds huge latency. Meh. Pretty easy to do too.

Yup. There's like 6 hops in that trace that are all BL.

$3-$6/mo for filtering and people complain?  Those trolls need to find a bridge to go hang out under.

bz's more referring to the folks that have the audacity to get uppity about not getting a discount on already insanely-priced service :p  But aye, agreed.

BuyVM pricing is already cheap. I don't consider them in the same class as the general LE* provider, so I don't mind paying 'more' for 'less'. The service works, and when Vegas doesn't lose power it's stable. :p Those who complain only do so because they're used to paying around $3.50/mo per GB of RAM as per LEB offers. You can also get cheaper, but I still feel like I should be paying more for the service.

Anyways, Limestone networks is using BlackLotus? Only experience with them was generally good, back when I worked for URPad we had a dedicated server with BL, had nice tools/features and the protection just worked. Expensive as shit though. Is Limestone's routing to BL all that bad? I mean, most places that do filtering is going to route traffic somewhere geographically different anyway, right? All I know is if you do a traceroute to vpsboard it stops in Seattle, even though the server is in Vegas. Not optimal routing but it works.

BL is in LA so basically LA to Dallas. Not much point of being in Dallas then.

Dallas to LA is 1,436 miles.

Vegas to Seattle is 1,129 miles.

So comparatively speaking, not a ton of difference between the distance between Limestone and BlackLotus and BuyVM and CNServers.

CN is in Portland :p

I think the point he's trying to make is that there's no advantage since it's backhauled from blacklotus. It isn't like they rolled out their own platform and it added a new player to the market.
