Both our internal network
and our connections to the Xeroscape
switches are wired with 100 Mbit ethernet. From there, Xeroscape uses multiple DS3/OC3 links from Tier 1 providers
such as WilTEl Communications and
Unlike our Fremont, California
location, we do not currently have the option of gigabit networking through Xeroscape. However, Xeroscape's networking
is sufficient to maintain excellent reliability and performance for all of the machines on their network.
Compared to Hurricane Electric, Xeroscape has a limited amount
of space in their colocation facilities. For this reason, their rack space costs are significantly higher. We
have been installing new servers to Fremont, California
and Amsterdam, Netherlands.
However, if you prefer your servers to be in Kansas City this location is still an option.
Xeroscape provides 15-amp circuits separate from the racks. This gives us a little more flexibility in server configuration
and helps us somewhat offset the additional price for the racks. Xeroscape has recently improved their power system to
provide much more uninterruptible power supply (UPS) capacity and diesel generator backup.
