Is DDoS scrubbing/filtering legit or junk at the $3-49/month?
Curious, do you feel the DDoS filtering you are getting from your current provider/host is working up to your expectations of how it should protect your server? I am referring to any vps/ded/colo that costs $3-49/month?
We have been looking into adding DDoS protection to our network for colo/ded/vps. Every solution costs 10-20k/mo or 150k+ for equipment purchases. We own all our equipment/servers. So we try to build our own services as we need them to keep costs down, as most do.
I can see how some VPS only providers would rent a server from a company who already offers ddos protection and then you just offer that same solution to each of your clients. So this is one way.
It becomes a much harder problem when you own your own suite and equipment. Oplink.net has been growing year after year. We started with 1 > 8 racks in the open white space area inside the Level3 Houston DC and moved into a suite with 21 racks. A couple years later we knocked a wall down and added 10 more racks.
Here are some options we have looked into already:
1. Level3 Scrubbing direct with our uplink (way too expensive)
2. Cloudflare magic transit
3. Purchasing a Cisco 9000 with a VSM module, (seems to be hitting EOL and costly)
4. Talked with Corero this morning, waiting on prices.
From my understanding Cloudflare & Facebook both use XDP and eBPF Prototype Kernel, with custom kernels built in house. Creating a linux ddos filter that uses xdp/BPF solution. Has anyone experimented with this?
Does anyone have any recommendations for us to check into? Something affordable ?
