Does anybody have experience or know the reliability etc. of the Cogent facility in Herndon, VA? I know the overall sucky reputation of Cogent, but was just wondering if there's anything specific regarding this facility that makes it good/bad etc. Thanks.
I manage a half dozen or so servers at this facility. While it is definately not my top choice for an IDC, the servers have been fairly stable since they were placed there over a year ago. We monitor these servers at 60 second intervals, and there has only been one extended outage of about 1.5 hrs, and a few isolated smaller outages, which may or may not have been attributable to cogent (could have been customer rebooting his firewall, etc).
