Server Specs

Hardware Features

  • 3.3+ GHz Processor (CPU)

    Our servers use a quad core Intel® Xeon® E3-1230 v2, E3-1231 v3, or newer processor. New servers are deployed with an Intel® Xeon® E-2174G or equivalent.

  • 32GB ECC RAM

    Error correcting and highly clocked, this RAM is deployed for high speed performance and stability.

  • Enterprise Grade Solid State Drives (SSD)

    We use Enterprise 240GB SSDs or larger on all servers.

  • Enterprise Grade Hard Disk

    We host our game servers on the SSD, but backups, the OS, and other non-essential files are run on standard disks.

  • DoS Protection and a 1Gbps Uplink Network

    DDoS attacks are a constant threat to game servers. Our network is built for network attack reliance.

  • Linux OS

    We've built our entire infrastructure on top of a Linux ecosystem to focus on performance, security, and stability.

Hardware F.A.Q.

  • Why don't you offer servers with higher thread-count?

    While other CPUs, such as the Intel E5 series certainly offer significantly more threads, they rarely offer the same level of performance by clock speed or IPC that we get with the current series. We've found that this particular CPU will give us a very predictable but high performance output at a much lower cost.

  • Why do you only have 32GB of ram on each node?

    This question runs parallel to the previous, regarding our server's performance. While the amount of RAM on each machine has no effect on performance, our CPU thread availability is a very limiting factor. By limiting how much RAM and CPU threads we expect to use to a much lower number per machine, we can guarantee high performance servers.

  • How much DDoS protection do you provide?

    Our datacenters have both external and internal packet scrubbing to protect against large scale attacks against each server.

  • Do you own or lease the hardware?

    We lease our hardware from reputable brands that have much larger netops, hardware, and infrastructure teams than we currently do. We find this more advantageous given the fact that we operate in datacenters throughout the world. We've strictly banned budget brands that would impede stability or performance.

  • Do you provide dedicated IPs?

    Yes, all of our services are issued a dedicated IP address that will only be used by one customer at a time.

  • Which Linux distribution are you using?

    Each host machine runs a Debian based Linux distribution.
