    They will soon be automatically be migrated to ryzen. I think @Francisco said possibly this week. The pallet has arrived and needs to clear customs.

    Yep :) LU doesn't get a lot though, what's there will probably last the day.

    Once the Ryzen's + slabs show up I expect it to burn down quick.

    The crate arrived in LU last night so I'm assuming it's just waiting on customs at this point.

    There's supposedly a 5 day quarantine period but i'm hoping they're willing to count the days it was in transit + the days it sat in the DC against that, meaning we can start racking ASAP.

    Dear gods, yes!! finally! Existing customers will get an email for the slabs?

    Also remind me can you scale down slabs if needed or you will have to get a new one and move data over?

    Yep, we'll send an email and break open the keg for the drinkers in the family.

    Slabs can only be grown, not shrunk. These are actual disk volumes, not NFS/S3/FUSE based.

    ya was checking the site to remember how slabs are setup and I saw scaling was mentioned in the FAQ - sowwy. I remember there is a big nvme cache of TBs in front but the main storage I don't remember what it is.

    Absolutely on dropping the HE tunnel ;) I'm just trying to decide if I get the IX or some HE bandwidth (the bandwidth would be good).

    I'm awaiting an email back from HE on all of that.

    Routed subnets went live this week, and ECMP IP load balancing went live last night!

    IX's are always a good idea; especially if you can make them accessible as a partner/reseller to your customers, entering the market of prem LowEnd IXP VMs. :smiley:

    However, I guess there won't be much benefit of connecting to LU-CIX as most of your traffic probably isn't directed to networks by local LU carriers.

    Since you probably need some additional transit besides Cogent anyways, I think I'd go for some solid HE bandwidth creating a balanced upstream mix. But of course this is just one personal opinion. :smile:

    I agree completely.

    I could try to peer with the main ISP in LU on the IX, but that's about it. To be honest I think just having HE gives a good chance of having a pretty direct connection to them anyway.

    2020 has been the year of improving the entire product line as a whole. Next year will be a focus on marketing and growth, god willing.

    P.S. @Francisco: As I just noticed an empty link (href=#) in Stallion named "BGP communities": Consider adding some goodies like Don't Announce and Prepend 1-3 for Cogent/HE, to make your BGP-capable Slices as enjoyable as possible. :smiley:

    Those do exist, I'll work on a modal tonight :)

    But:

    53667,0,1 = learned from transit
    53667,0,2 = learned from peer
    53667,0,3 = learned from client

    53667,1,174 = learned from cogent transit
    53667,1,6939 = learned from HE transit
    
    53667,2,8100 = learned from Quadranet peer
    
    53667,3,20150 = learned from AnyNode client
    
    Prepends/No Exports:
    
    53667,10x,y = x = prepend 1,2,3(or 9 dont) and y = ASN

    Great! :sunglasses:
    But may... I kindly ask for some backward compatibility for routing gear not supporting extended communities?
    I don't know how many upstreams you intend to add, but maybe something like 53667:1yy (learned from y) and 53667:1yyx (prepend x to y) might work as well.
    Just in case you haven't finished your thoughts yet. :)

    We went with large communities since we'll have people with longer 4 byte ASN's and such. I'll think about finding a way to tag for 'normal' communities :) If you got some ideas let me know and I can probably make BIRD do it.

    @Francisco I see your point. Well, but on the other hand (universal) extended communities and (legacy) communities shouldn't exclude each other. So you could keep your existing BIRD config and simply add 53667:1yy and 53667:1yyx tags for your main upstreams.

    Maybe something like:

    learned from
    53667:174 = Cogent transit
    53667:169 = HE transit
    53667:181 = Quadranet peer
    
    prepend n={1,2,3} or no_announce(n=0) to
    53667:174n = Cogent transit
    53667:169n = HE transit
    53667:181n = Quadranet peer
    

    or in other words:

    53667:1xx = learned from xx
    53667:1xxn = prepend n={1,2,3} or no_announce(n=0) to xx
    
    xx:
    74 = Cogent transit
    69 = HE transit
    81 = Quadranet peer

    @dfroe I'll think on it :) We could always just limit the legacy comm's for transit/major peering agreements.

    You could make it so your dockers get their own /64 of IPv6 IP's.

    Or maybe you're running a VPN and want each user to get their own /64 of IPV6 instead of just NAT.

    I hope you'll be my customer too ;)

    Anthony & I figure it'll take 3 - 4 days to get everyone migrated, hopefully a lot sooner if the 10gbit network is turned up from the start.

    @cazrz said: @Francisco

    Slabs are on the pallet :) I figure we'll have them live within a week of slices + 10gbit network being rolled out. Most likely a lot sooner than that.

    Singapore has some draconian censorship laws in place that makes it a no for us.

    Right now we're considering a UK launch (be it we buy another brand and merge it into the family), and or somewhere like Japan. Japan seems to be freedom of speech laws similar to that of the States with the only issue most likely being porn censorship.

    I'm open to suggestions and feedback :)
