Boosting our Pentium4 Line of Servers

We’re now making any standard purchase of a Pentium4 class server with 2GB of RAM. With over 800 P4’s this is a huge invest for us to bring these servers up to modern specs and we’ll continue to offer the best hardware and price for performance model out there. Our P4’s start at just under $80 for a 2.8GHz with HyperThreading, 2GB of RAM, 80GB SATAII HDD and 1500GB or 5Mbps dedicated unmetered bandwidth. These servers are ideal for smaller traffic websites and can support any 32 bit OS such as Windows 2003 or CentOS 5.X.

Undersea cable problems slow Asian Internet traffic

Some of our Asian customers are reporting slow Internet access (trace routes and ping times) to the United States and other areas of the world. Currently, two of the major undersea communications cables in the area have received major damage and are no longer functioning. Telecommunications companies are rerouting the Internet traffic, but it will take at least a week to reach full speeds.

The two affected cables are

  1. Asia-Pacific Cable Network 2 (APCN2) – connects China (Hong Kong) and Taiwan
  2. East Asia Crossing (EAC) undersea cable – connects Hong Kong and Taiwan

We expect the EAC cables to be repaired by August 20th. There is no estimation on repair times for the APCN2 cable.
