9288 VPS Safely Migrated, how did we dodge the DEATH BALL ? How a Hunch Saved the Business and Data of Thousands of Clients

Below is a snippet of our sudden announcement of migrating all our servers to a different datacentre:

We made this announcement on 6th of August, though we started planning for it in July itself, but it was just a hunch hence we could not make it public as we have yet to find a reliable provider, arrange for 11000+ IP, arrange for close 100 Servers, find locations that are suitable for our clients etc…

But what made us take this decision as we have been using DEDIPATH services for over 5 years without any trouble ?

There were few warning signs:

  1. Their CTO Left the company
  2. Support tickets were delayed a lot
  3. Nobody from management was approachable
  4. Then I think in July end two of their facilities went offline for over 3 hours – NJ and LA, this was the biggest warning sign, but then after asking repeatedly they finally sent RFO
  5. This RFO was the final NAIL in the COFFIN and forced us to take this decision of migrating out of Dedipath. This RFO said the reason behind the outage was routing issue, but how can two different locations have routing issue at the same time ? I tried to inquire a lot about it to know the actual reason, but everybody at DP was behind NDA hence could not utter a word, but this made us decide to finally migrate out.

This sudden Emergency Migration was not appreciated by all clients, but we even could not tell the clients that we are doing it on the basis of a hunch that things are not alright at DP hence we had to migrate out, but most of the clients did not complained but still I know it’s a lot of trouble for clients to change their IP in the web server, mail server, DNS Servers, proxy, vpn or for whatever services they were using their VPS.

We appreciate patience shown by all clients during this migration, but whatever we did was in the best interest of our clients, their data and also for survival of Hosteons.

Usually providers physically move servers to another Datacentre as it saves a lot of costs, though it causes downtime but still it’s the most economical way to do migration especially if you own the servers/hardware, but in our case even this was not possible and also we did not wanted to cause hours of downtime and sometimes servers do break during transport that could again cause more problems and data loss.

If we move the servers physically it has many risks:

  1. Server Damage During Transportation
  2. Hours of Downtime as it’s takes lots of time if you have to UNRACK 100 servers, then transport them, then again bring them online in the new datacentre with new IP, new network configuration
  3. Not only this how do we change IP of 9000 VPS all at once ? It could take days before we do this, so this just means downtime of days or even weeks
  4. Moreover there were rumours in Forums that Remote Hands is at HOLD in DP, as the Datacentre “EVOCATIVE” is not doing it, I won’t get in details what exactly is the problem, so we could not expect that we will be actually provided access to our servers

So this option was OFF the TABLE

So how exactly did we migrate 9288 VPS Safely ?

We decided that we will first get the following:

  1. Our own ASN – If we use ASN of our Datacentre it causes lots of problems like if the Datacentre has abusive users it even affects our IP Reputation. So we got our own ASN before migration – AS142036
  2. Our own IP – We have some of our own IP Blocks from APNIC, we used them along with, we directly did contract with IP Vendors and got IP on long term contract, so that we don’t need to change IP every now and then as we had to do when IP are provided by Datacentre, because if Datacentre wants they change or pull back their IP blocks anytime they want, so this time we got IP Directly from IP Vendors and used our own IP
  3. We got new servers, but new server hardware delivery takes time it is not instant, so this took almost 10 days and even in these 10 days we did not got all the servers, even some servers failed hardware diagnostics, we had to get them replaced, rack etc… it was a period of sleepless nights that just finished today earlier with our FINAL Server migration without any DATA LOSS to any client.
  4. It was not easy to apply and get ASN, get new IP, arrange for new servers that too in locations that are similar to what we currently have and above all, all these things require a lot of CASH.
  5. But we have a solid business plan and we keep our business profitable unlike many low end providers who just keep discounting their prices to get sales and ultimately end up shutting down, but due to our SOLID BUSINESS PLAN and over 2 decades of experience in HOSTING INDUSTRY, we were able to pull through this tough phase.



This is just a partial announcement but they did shutdown with less then 24 hours notice, and if we had not migrated out in time, then we would have lost data of almost all clients by now as it was not possible to arrange for 100 Servers in such a short period and also migrate data of 9000+ VPS within 24 hours, as I know it take us over 20 days to migrate out data of 9000 VPS

The best part is our clients had close to ZERO DOWNTIME, the reason being we did a live migration of VPS, just the IP was changed, so it all depends how quickly they start using the new IP

So this is how we DODGED the DEATH BALL just on the basis of a hunch and over 2 decades of experience in HOSTING INDUSTRY

Some major FREE Upgrades coming soon to Budget Gigabit KVM VPS

We have been constantly trying to improve and upgrade quality of our services and now we are doing one more major upgrade to our Budget Gigabit KVM VPS, after this upgrade even our Budget KVM VPS will performa like Premium VPS:

1) Retiring all our AMD Opteron VPS Nodes and upgrading to Intel E5 based Nodes with same RAID 10 SSD Drives (these nodes will be hosting almost half the number of VPS on them compared to our old VPS Nodes)

2) Upgrade VPS Node Port from 1 Gbps to 10 Gbps, this will improve network performance a lot.

Moreover we would like to inform all our Legacy 100 Mbps unmetered VPS clients that since we are now upgrading server port to 10Gbps, we will be strictly enforcing our Acceptable Usage Policy to avoid any bandwidth abuse, because it affects performance of all other VPS on the same node. We have found a lot of Unmetered VPS users using upto 50 TB per month on 100 Mbps Port, which clearly means that these VPS were using more then 100 Mbps 24×7 (yes it happens sometimes, traffic shaping does not work 100% accurately on VPS Nodes), we are rate limiting such VPS to 10 Mbps to avoid further abuse and to avoid of quality of service going down for our other clients, though if such user wants to switch to our Gigabit KVM VPS packages, just submit a support ticket we will do it. Moreover if you are on 100 Mbps Legacy package and if you are not abuser and following our Acceptable Usage Policy you can continue to use your VPS without issues and won’t find any kind of cap on your network. Most of these Bandwidth abusers appear to be commercial VPN/Proxy providers which is already against our Terms of Service, so if we find good proof that you are using it for commercial VPN/Proxy your services will be terminated (it does not matter if you are on unmetered or metered plan, but we don’t allow commercial vpn/proxy providers on our network)

We have lots of VPS nodes so this whole process will take almost 1 month or may be even more, but we are planning to start this process within next 3-4 days. This is how we have planned:

1) We will add new VPS nodes to same network as our current VPS Nodes (on 1 Gbps Port) then we will migrate all VPS from old VPS nodes to new VPS nodes, there will be no data loss or IP change, but you will experience downtime of few minutes usually less than 10 minutes.

2) Once VPS are migrated to new nodes, we will have to shutdown the VPS nodes and physically move them to the RACK with 10 Gbps network/switch, this migration can take 1-2 hour, as it involves shutting down vps nodes, physically UNRACK the VPS Node from old RACK and move it to the new RACK and plugin all cables, then route the IP ranges to the new switch/RACK and booting all the VPS nodes back online.

But once this done you will experience much better network performance as well as CPU performance, overall quality of VPS will improve a lot.

We will be doing this across all our locations – Los Angeles, New York, Las Vegas, Jacksonville.

We will be even starting Budget Gigabit VPS Service in Dallas soon, since this will be a new node, we will start it with 10Gbps Port

We will email all clients about it before we start this migration.

For regular update on this upgrade kindly bookmark this link as we will be posting future updates about this upgrade on above post

VPS Nodes and Web Hosting Server Migration and Downtime

We are constantly working on improving our network and services hence to improve our VPS as well as Web Hosting services we have decided to change Datacenter for our services.

Currently all our VPS Nodes as well as Web Hosting servers in LA are hosted with Psychz but to provide even better services we are migrating all our servers to InterNAP

During this migration we will be physically moving servers to InterNAP and your IP will remain same, there will be no change in your services as we will be using same hardware.

We will be sending out email to all clients once we schedule a date and time for migration, but this migration will lead to about 5 hours of downtime, all our services in LA will be down during these 5 hours, but once it’s migrated we are sure all our clients will really enjoy and like the new services as they will be much better then our current services, all clients will get much better network latency.

Following customers will be affected with this migration:

1) All LA KVM VPS Users who are on Node 1 – Node 12  (Users on Node 13 will not be affected as it’s already at INAP/InterNAP)

2) All OpenVZ VPS users

3) Web Hosting Users

Our NY KVM VPS users will also not be affected with this migration.

But we still advice all our clients to take backups of their important data as servers are electronic equipments and there is always a possibility of things going wrong when such migrations are involved though we will be doing our best to make sure all data and servers are securely transferred.

We will email all our customers once we finalise date and time for migration, we will even post an announcement about it here.
