  • Feral moving to Interxion on November 4th

    Figured some T-I peeps might want to read this fresh email from Feral.

    __________________________________________________ __
    Hello,

    Now is an exciting and crucial time for Feral Hosting, a lot has been planned over the next few months and I wanted to keep you well informed of the great things to come.

    First of all, we're moving everything to Amsterdam, Netherlands into Interxion. This will bring:

    * a world-class facility to host our servers: Interxion are one of the best in their field;
    * stronger guarantees: 99.999% power uptime SLA (2N), additional physical security;
    * room to grow indefinitely: a lot of power and space reserved in our own cage;
    * the need to never move again: we're planning to stay for many many years;
    * and most importantly: a carrier-neutral data centre allowing us to buy bandwidth from 40+ carriers.

    This means we will be building our own network and will have a lot more control over how bandwidth is delivered. Our plan is to connect to multiple carriers while selecting the fastest routes from each. We will then start connecting directly to your ISP to eliminate potential issues. Interxion do not sell bandwidth, instead choosing to focus on providing the best facility possible. We are building a Feral network!

    From day one we hope to add AMS-IX and Fiber Ring (a sister company of Leaseweb) connectivity which should result in better connections to Europe. After that the only thing holding us back is negotiating the right price. A perfect platform from which to look at improving connections to the US and Asia.

    We are also proud to say that we have done our part and ensured our current uplinks have remained uncongested even while we have seen tremendous growth. Last week we hit the 60 Gbps mark---a level that most data centres do not see. I want to do more to emphasise our commitment to no congestion by offering network transparency: eventually revealing what the speeds and capabilities of each of our servers, switches, routers and even our transit uplinks.

    Naturally, we'll pass improvements and savings on by eventually increasing upload quotas.

    To do this--and here's where it gets awkward--we need to move all of our existing hardware to the Netherlands. The plan is to have everything packaged, insured, then driven to the Netherlands by a trusted company that specialises in handling our equipment. It will not take more than 2-3 days and you will be compensated the time it took plus 50% more.

    By taking this approach we're avoiding the much slower method of upgrading everyone one at a time over the next year. We'll get it done quickly in classic no-nonsense fashion leaving us to focus on the important things.

    Interxion will be ready for us to move in on the 4th November, however it might happen the week prior. We will update you with more information as we get it closer to the time as we get a concrete date. The move will occur on a week day.

    Finally, we are looking at replacing our network cards so that we can use fibre optics everywhere. It will also bring a number of speed improvements that are always welcomed. To do this we will be taking the opportunity to evaluate and find out what is currently best on the market. We might be sending out an e-mail to announce a small bit of downtime while the current card is replaced. Unless, on opening the server, it is found that tiny little hamsters have been running the show all along, replacement will only take a few minutes.

    We can then come to a decision and replace all network cards during the move to the Netherlands and build out a fully redundant fibre network offering, 20 Gbps per server.

    This is only the tip of the iceberg for our future plans, these are exciting times! Please feel free to reply to this e-mail if you have any feedback, comments, or reservations: we do love to hear from you.

    Regards,
    Joshua

    Netherlands will be full of seedboxes.:-D

    All DC located in Europe have poor connections to Asia

      Shh! I wouldn't want our happy customers in Malaysia, Thailand, or the guy in Singapore (who gets around 15MB/s via FTP) to hear that....the speeds they are getting just might collapse

              Apologies to the OP, just answering the question..

              No, we are in Amsterdam, at the Switch datacenter. Leaseweb's volume network doesn't have the peering we want, or need for our members, and their premium network is a bit rich for our blood.

              Additionally, when a member says they have peering issues, our provider is willing to re-route the back traffic over a different backbone. Try asking for that over at OVH or LW.

                Could you please stop writing this crap?! Stop lying, you are not in LW not because "Leaseweb's volume network doesn't have the peering we want" but because you cannot afford it! You are in YISP.nl which has only:
                • - 20Gbit AMS-IX
                • - 10Gbit Openpeering / NL-IX
                • - 10Gbit Level 3
                • - 20Gbit Cogent

                How do you want to compare this poor peering to LW volume network ? LW has it + a lot of more so what do you have and they don't ?

                Also stop writing about things you have no idea of! I'm talking now about "reroute", OVH and LW will do this if there is any problem. Any DC will do this so please stop promoting your service everywhere with false information.

                  Sorry to the OP, didn't mean to have this happen in your thread.

                  Lets take this back to the thread that began all this, and you can start answering some questions.

                    The truth is that you shouldn't go everywhere and write this crap that OVH and LW are blee and only your connection is superb and then you wouldn't have to apologise to anyone.
                    I have already shown what poor connection your DC has when compared to LW volume network. You are not willing to make a comment about that and you appear to answer all the questions with so much pleasure. So if you need some more details about your DC, here they are:

                    Internet exchanges: : AMS-IX, Openpeering / NL-IX
                    Transit Providers: Level 3, Cogent

                    LW volume:
                    Transit Providers: Level3, Telia Sonera, Global Crossing, Tata Telecommunications, Deutsche Telekom, Cogent
                    Internet exchanges: AMS-IX, LINX, DE-CIX, and 27 other in Europe and US, multiple private peers

                    So you have just 4 features- 2 transit and 2 internet exchanges. Taking that into account, your claim that LW doesn't have what you need is just ridiculous!

                      thx, but no apology necessary. I'm happy it started a discussion about any seedbox host, hence the forum title

                      In my opinion (could be wrong though), this forum (and my post) is a *the* perfect place for competitors to respond (with facts).

                      That last sentence has a lot of parentheses.

                          Hello, I choose one of your servers found in a peer list of my torrent to ping form my home and found something strange that the time is lower than others located in Evo as well.Could you tell me why this difference exists? The routers in Telia changes every minute but ones of others not .Time of yours is only below 300ms but others over 600ms.
                          I think there is something special in premium network.

                            We are not at Evo, we are at the Switch datacenter, different DC, and I'm glad to hear that you are getting better ping times with us, and that I'm telling the truth....but as you might imagine, I personally find both of those things unremarkable.

                            We work very hard, and have gone through multiple data centers, and even more quotes for service to end up where we are, having the quality of bandwidth we do.

                              You have never replied to this question so I'm asking it again. A simple question, what do you have that LW doesn't have ? If you have something that LW doesn't so please share this info with us but please stop lying. You are not in switch DC only in YISP.nl and they are listed as a client in switch DC but they have their own connectivity and this is a huge difference.
                              Stop making fools of people.
