EZZI vs HE.NET


Hi guys, I'm not going to fool around on the forum to just get who is better than who. I know there's no BEST thing.

However, I really want to know YOUR thoughts about those two datacenters.

EZZI is cheaper for sure, but I'm not sure if they're reliable. And also, I would like to know EZZI and HE.NET's connection speed to Asia as most of our clients are in Asia.

I did search the forum already, but still would like to know more about them.

Any comment would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

ezzi is east coast isn't it?
he.net is west coast. your asian customers will probably have lower pings with a west coast network than east coast. correct me if i am wrong?

can't compare ezzi and HE. ezzi purchases bandwidth from different providers.
To answer your question, you'd probably get better routing through Ezzi though. they also have peering with HE.

what you can do is go to www.traceroute.org and try traceroutes to each network from Asia.

Why can't you? Both sell servers with their own network...I would go with ezzi over HE though. HE has a single connection, which if it goes down, it's all down whereas ezzi has several providers (good ones at that).

Because HE is a bandwidth provider while Ezzi has peering through HE

EZZI doesn’t peer through HE, HE and EZZI peer with each other. This arguable makes both companies on the same level as tier 2. HE is bigger network wise though.

EZZI is also a bandwidth provider, just smaller than HE.

if you want the best connection for asia clients though, you havta go with west coast then. No doubt the pings will be much lower and they will get much better speed. I can transfer files from asia to california at 5000k/s . ive never even come close to that to the east coast no matter what datacenter i pull to.

while ezzi.net might sell "t3's, t1's & "oc3s" they dont have a private network which extends throughout the nation. they lease lines/fiber from different providers.

HE.NET on the other hand has its own true-global network & the ability to provide much larger sums of bandwidth as their network is more equipt to do so.

as far as the question here goes though, speeds to your customers in asia is dependent on how you want your stuff setup. If you want a single homed provider that is on the west coast then HE.NET in san jose(lowest rates out of all HE.NET DC's) if u want redudency though, id go with EZZI as they have multiple carriers.

HE is bigger than EZZI. I would compare HE to Peer1 with not so many POPs. Also, NAC.

Nice to see "RaineTech" spreading factual information around the forums again.

Hey guys, thanks a lot for your replies.

I did a traceroute as suggested, similar results for EZZI and HE.NET.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean. HE uses a lot of williams bandwidth (which is NOT their own). Both companies are similar. HE is obviously much larger in terms of sheer size, but ezzi is larger at dedicated servers. The information you posted had nothing to do with what I posted earlier. The poster was trying to determine which network was better for his hosting. Both HE and ezzi have networks and both HE and ezzi sell dedicated servers.

Hurricane Electric (HE.NET) is a big bandwith provider. You say, it is single, what if it goes down? Why it should? It even has pop locations at Europe. I never had a network downtime since 4+ months (since I got my server here exactly) with he.net

ezzi is good but, you can't trust them
he.net is more people friendly. They don't shutdown your server immediately like theplanet/servermatrix does.
if you go with he.net, you'll take less risks for sure.
