Dallas upgrade

Post by Edge100x »

We've upgraded Dallas! It is now a Premium location for us and boasts 200 Gbps of upstream capacity, increasing its performance and significantly enhancing its ability to absorb DDoS attacks.

In celebration of the upgrade, we're running a steep sale on our E3-1270v3 and E3-1271v3 dedicated server machines at this location. For a limited time, you can snap up one of these machines for $30 off the normal price -- dropping the cost of an E3-1270v3 from 76.99 to 46.99 per month when the one-time cost option is chosen, for instance.

These machines have been real workhorses and continue to stack up, particularly against modern cloud offerings. Bare hardware platforms like these lack the virtualization overhead and less predictable performance of the cloud, and these machines are faster on a per-CPU-core basis than most VPSes.

Wow! Personally, I never thought of Dallas as much of a "datacenter city" but now it's stacking up just as high as Seattle, gaining over 10x its previous power, going from the second-weakest location to tied for second strongest :O

That's a really tempting deal but I have no use case for dedis :| How long will the sale last?

Not sure yet! We'll keep an eye on demand and go from there.

Also just noticed the giant banner on the homepage. Not sure how I missed that before.
