VPS servers are housed in the 25,000 sq.ft AtlantaNAP datacenter in
Atlanta, Georgia. We strive to provide the most reliable network by
utilizing the best equipment consisting of Cisco with gigabit
connections to Savvis, Telia, PCCW-BTN, and Global Crossing.
AtlantaNAP utilizes the Avaya Route Science route optimizer to ensure
the highest performance routing to your VPS versus normal BGP. While
normal BGP simply looks at how many hops from internet user to your VPS,
the route science system traces back to the internet user up to 7,000
times a minute identifying any problematic areas such as speed,
packetloss, amount of hops than re-routing the connection to ensure the
fastest possible route to your VPS.
VPS enterprise class servers are 2U rack mounted Supermicro
servers running Seagate Cheetah SCSI drives in Raid 10
configuration with 16 GB fully buffered ECC RAM and dual power
supplies. Hot-swap drives, fans, and PSU means no downtime during drive
and PSU failure.
VPS exclusively run the industry leading
Virtuozzo software from SWsoft
to power your VPS. Virtuozzo creates virtual environments on a single
server ensuring that your VPS is isolated with your own system resources
