We use high clock speed processors with amazing single threaded performance. We monitor them around the clock to ensure that there is enough free processing capacity. You'll be able to burst up to 1-2 CPU cores. Since most games can only utilize a single processor thread, a higher speed processor helps with performance.
All of our plans use one of the following processors:
We only use Intel solid state drives (SSDs). A single solid state drive can offer the performance of more than 30 regular spinning drives. We choose data center grade models to ensure performance consistency.
Our strategic Boston, MA location has excellent connectivity to the rest of North America and Europe. For public servers, this is a good central location for players from the western United States to western Europe.
Error correcting code memory keeps your server stable by correcting single bit and detecting double bit memory errors.
We protect your creations with automatic daily off-server backups and enterprise-grade Juniper hardware firewalls. Backups protect your worlds from griefers, mistakes, and physical server failures. The firewalls guard against unauthorized network access.
Your servers are on a gaming-optimized network for awesome pings and stability. Through pure reliable Internap backbone, and high performance Level 3 IP, a patented network optimizer pools together seven network providers and continuously analyzes them to give you the best ones. The network performance guarantees are the most stringent on the market: 100% uptime, < 45 ms average monthly ping within the continental U.S., < .3% packet loss, and < .5 ms jitter.
