    only one of the providers you listed is west coast.

    Outside of that look at quadranet and he.net

    Exactly.

    To add onto Ryan's list, take a look at WebNX.

    The IPs are going to be a toughy though.

    will check into this thanks for the input ..

    and its true not all my mentioned providers offer a westoast datacenter..

    now sharktech has a datacenter in denver and denver is more midwest than west, but on a 2nd thought, maybe midwest would be ok as well since our other spot is in in the east and denver is almost central on the map, so it dont have to be west coast then ..

    but i need more detailed infos..can you tell me why would you recommend the mentioned providers whats is special about them or any more infos ..

    im open for more ideas and oppinions on my previous mentioned hosters ..

    which network / datacenter in general should i take a further look into and why ?

    like i said before we need the best we can get for money ..

    ive checked into quadraNet and their order form doesnt even work ... not a good look .. but must not mean so much ..

    Please excuse the dust. Our ordering and customization system is in development and will be released soon.
    For the time being, please submit your order requests to our sales department via email or telephone.

    problem is they all hosters talk the same but its only a website so its hard to tell which one really does what we want.. i need some more thoughts ...

    simple as that which is the best known reliable datacenter / network / hoster in the USA / west / midwest i should go for any why...

    and yes i know

    but IPs are important for us we need around 150-300 and i know some do troubles with the ips but some of them stil have enough resources left.. on our east coast spot we didnt had any problem to order such amount of ips..

    I am sorry to disappoint you but at the moment we are not providing any servers with more than /27 in our Denver DC, and no more than /26 in our Chicago DC. Even if they meet the IP Justification requirements.

    We are running short on IPs and like everyone else trying our best to conserve our current allocations.

    can i try your vpn?

  10. #10
    send me a pm shin

    and after some talk and further reading i narrowed down the decision to 2-3 now..which is gigenet, softlayer (which wont give us more than maximum 50 IPs) and awknet which dont have any capacities left at the moment since they build a new datacenter this moment..

    From a technical point of view, quadranet meets all your requirements and I would recommend them. I don't know who you're going to find to give you 300 ips on a single server however, that's going to be nearly impossible.

    we already got a spot on the east and had no problem to get on 200 ips and could easily order more but i know what you are talking about...

    and quadranet i will check on them again later on..

    but what about quadras anti ddos protection setup and general network speed ? any thoughts?


    i mean to me after rading alot it came down to those 2-3 providers i mentioned since they seem to the 'most known' or 'best' or however you wanna call it...

    gigenet should be good has a strong name..

    softlayer i talked to them today but they have a strict ip policy so i dont know..

    you want a ton of IPs and are asking about ddos protection?

    thanks for the referrals from everyone above!!, but this doesn't sound like business we would be interested in

    lol, sorry Chris.

    As to the OP's question, the quadranet network is great, but as said, that many ips is going to be tough from any provider.

    On a single server, that's definetly true. And while I've not looked at the numbers for one-off VPN service, I do know from operating a lot of tunnels that it's a fairly CPU intensive operation. I can't imagine putting 300 VPN clients on one server, unless it was a fairly monstrous box...

    an openvpn based VPN really doesn't use a lot of cpu. Even a relatively modest (at the time) server 5+ years ago could do 100 megabit full duplex with openvpn.

    For a single client and the default Blowfish/SHA1 configuration, that's certainly true. 300 simultaneous clients are a much different story - encryption doesn't scale at all linearly with concurrency.

    how about this:
    Dell Q8200 Core2Quad (4 x 2.33Ghz)
    4GB DDR3 Ram

    cipher BF-CBC...
    can it handle 200 concurrent clients?

    I'm sure it can, the question is, how much throughput can it handle at reasonable latency? That's a level-of-quality question for you.

    I would go with a i7 series processor with hyperthreading. You want threads, threads, thread if you're determined to do this with one box.

    Of course, if you split this up into 4 boxes, you'll find that the list of providers you can work with gets much bigger.
