The 20 Questions:

Why Anycast?

An anycast network is more redundant, and fault resilient than a regular single PoP network. By announcing in multiple distinct locations we gain redundancy against network and server failure as well as the ability to reduce latency by taking in the connection closer to the source.

Anycast also allows for an increase in Mitigation capacity (particularly Layer 7) and overall throughput per service.

Is this more complicated than a regular filtered service?

For most setups it shouldn't be :) We still provide all the same guides and scripts for setup.

Can I point one or more Anycast PoP at a single server?

Yes you can select which Anycast PoP should be forwarding to each defined backend.

Can each PoP communicate with my server direct?

Yep.

Optionally with GRE Tunnelling you can also choose to have all PoPs pointed at a single backend, and for that backend to communicate with the appropriate PoP all via a single internal IP address; or you can define only a single tunnel (the choice is yours!)

This is an Anycast IP, can I connect out?

We have worked hard to build a solution that is able to function in every way like a regular Remote Protection service. With a GRE tunnel you can make outgoing connections. There may be a small delay for the first few packets while we create an optimized route through the network.

What about Support?

Low End plans have support Priority capped at Medium. Support for Low End plans is provided in a reduced capacity.

The Technical Stuff

Featuring:

  • Redundant internal backhaul, resilient against communication failures
  • Internal Mesh network, ingress traffic at one PoP and egress it at another (no complex configuration required!)
  • Direct Server Return (DSR) from the first filtering hop wherever possible for minimal latency
  • Able to handle all kinds of PoP switches, rejoins and splits without interruption
  • Support for tunnels to one or more filtering PoPs (with or without BGP) for redundancy
  • China Telecom & CN2 optimized routes in L.A
  • Multihomed w/ Telia and Tinet and Peering

    I am currently using your Multi-Homed (2 PoPs). Actually I am not familiar with DDos, I just know my website can get more protection after using your service.

    (1) What difference between Multi-Homed and above Anycast DDoS Protection?

    (2) Should I change my Multi-Homed to above Anycast DDoS Protection?

  • SplitIceSplitIce Member, Provider

    @noqqkk

    You get all of the same features and more (more locations, more functionality, one IP - easier to use). Plus it's probably cheaper per month (it definitely is for larger DNS Multihomed services) :)

    Very cool! Looks like you've put a lot of effort into this and made a very nice solution. I was going to ask some questions but decided to just go ahead and sign up, thinking that your UI would answer the questions for me - and it did.

    @file Thanks I'm glad you like it.

    BTW there is a new UI coming, hopefully within the month. I wanted to have it out before the big reveal but I couldn't wait.

    Lots of exciting things happening over the next 3 months. And mostly based around this product line :)

    I was thinking of this service last night, and looked over your beta post again in the hope that you'd updated it.

    Time to spend some money...

    @leyton Sorry mate, the feedback came back positive.

    Enjoy a deal instead :)

    What's up with the Miami location? I seem to connect to Ashburn from a location in Miami.

    Also, the Miami location is not listed on the Network Status / Our Datacenters pages of your website.

  • SplitIceSplitIce Member, Provider

    @niels Sorry we are in the process of updating the status page in respect to the new product line.

    We have a reported issue in Miami which we are investigating. As such the location is temporarily disabled as a precaution.

    Is it only the looking glass for which the location is disabled? Any idea when it will be up again?

  • SplitIceSplitIce Member, Provider

    The location was taken offline for the /24 announced. It's currently back up, however we may need to take it offline again for maintenance depending on the result of an investigation. As always traffic re-routes to the closest PoP (in this case Ashburn, Virginia) w/o interruption.

  • Posting here since it's the more relevant thread :

    Does the bundled 2-zone rage4 dns have their geodns feature enabled ?

    For queries/month, around 1-2MM is plenty for me.

    @vimalware At this stage it doesn't as we haven't put a UI control in for it. But providing you don't want to make frequent changes I'm happy to set it manually for you.
