Each of our servers are built with game server performance in mind.
3.8+ GHz Processor (CPU)
Our servers majoritively use an Intel® Xeon® E-2174G or equivalent.
64GB 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 SSDs to power all customer game servers.
Enterprise Grade Hard Disk
We host our game servers on the SSD, but backups, the OS, and other files not required by your game server are run on standard disks.
DDoS Protection and High Performance Network
DDoS attacks are a constant threat to game servers. Our network is built for network attack reliance.
We've built our entire infrastructure on top of a Linux ecosystem to focus on performance, security, and stability.
If you're like most tech-savvy server owners, you've got a couple questions:
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 64GB 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.
