Hurricane Electric


What is everyone's opinion on the HE datacenter? I'm thinking of ordering a server that'll be located in their DC through someone else. Thanks everyone

Good network, solid DC. Install times are not very good, and they are costly.

Which area are you looking at? San Jose I'd assume?

Excellent, solid network. Very reliable. Install times aren't terrible, as long as you stay "on them" about it. You might also do better in terms of customer service and price by going with a reseller.

Our experience with HE has been good, first just as a customer and then as a reseller. I would highly recommend them.

Never used them. But I heard there great. BTW... how much do they charge per gig?

Hurricane Electric doesn't sell bandwidth per-GB -- like most large providers. If you pay per-Mbps directly to HE, you'll be in the range of $125-$200 per Mbps for fairly low commits, from what I've seen.

If you want per-GB via HE, consider a reseller. Some resellers offer per-GB HE, including us.

Good luck.

Hurricane Electric is great. I have been to their data center in Fremont, CA and I was very impressed.

I second takiman. What I like about HE other than their solid bandwidth, they are staffed 24/7. Most of the time, their assistance is free (you may want to confirm this with your provider). In my opinion, HE is one of the best performing and stable data center in California (performance and financially).

We've been reselling bandwidth and colocation for Hurricane Electric for more than a year now, and have nothing but praises for their service and quality. If anybody needs a reference, drop me a PM i'd be glad to provide a testimonial.

Cheers
