Hi everyone.

I'm happy to announce some updates regarding SouthBendVPS;

  • We now offer an internal IPv4 Network*
  • We now offer a 10% commission Affiliate System
  • We have separated our offerings into "Premium" and "Budget" plans.  "Premium" = higher I/O priority and full access to core allotment (100% of x cores), and semi-managed**.  "Budget" = lower I/O priority, and 50% access to core allotment, more resources, and self-managed.  
Internal IPv4 Network*
 

Our internal IPv4 network allows you to access other VPS on the network without using your bandwidth allocation.  Here is an example of our internal network speed:


$ wget http://172.16.0.1/100M.zip

Semi silly question here, with this internal IPV4, is use in the same datacenter counted against quota?  I know the internal IP is different and can't speak outside of your setup.  But say if I wanted to use your service to fetch files from my @24khost VPS in the same facility.

If not, any idea of how such can be facilitated there or in general?

By internal, I mean like RFC1918 addresses.  Meaning, any traffic using our eth0 interface (external) would be counted and any traffic used between each VPS via our internal IPv4 network would not be counted.  If @24khost wants to set up a cross-connect or similar I'd be happy to help set that up  :p

I actually think that they're in the same rack as us (Are those Poweredges with the SAS 15K's Devon's?)

But to answer your question, yes, it'll still be counted since it's leaving our switch.  :)

So a cross connect, we are talking about a facility level cross connect with monthly facility charge or something else?

I ask, because I run into this from time to time.  Find a facility and maybe I have a colo unit there or a storage VPS and I end up fronting that with a VPS in the same facility so as not to expose the real server.   Stinks eating up bandwidth like crazy on "internal" data transfer in same facility.

Well the cross-connect thing was kind of a joke but if they're in the same rack, I'm sure something could be done  :)

Yeah, same rack is a gigabit ethernet cable run :)  Good info.

Outside of the rack would be a facility cross connect then?   Do they charge both monthly + setup for those?  Only dealt with cross connects before for custom bandwidth in a facility.

If they do tack on a fee, we could always just put up a GRE tunnel and push traffic through a tunnel.  But that also depends on how the datacenter meters traffic.  For all I know they may not meter traffic that doesn't hit an upstream.

If the Poweredges in this picture turn out to be 24khost's, then we might be able to work something out  ;)
