Five new 1 Gbit/s servers available (NL)

Recommended Posts

Hello!

We're very glad to inform you that five new 1 Gbit/s servers located in the Netherlands are available: Ceres, Julliet, Pallas, Riguel and Sedna.

The AirVPN client will show automatically the new servers, while if you use the OpenVPN client you can generate all the files to access them through our configuration/certificates/key generator (menu "Client Area"->"Config generator").

The server accepts connections on ports 53, 80, 443, 2018 UDP and TCP.

Just like every other Air server, Ceres, Julliet, Pallas, Riguel and Sedna support OpenVPN over SSL and OpenVPN over SSH.

As usual no traffic limits, no logs, no discrimination on protocols and hardened security against various attacks with separate entry and exit-IP addresses.

 

Do not hesitate to contact us for any information or issue.

Kind regards and datalove
AirVPN Team

Amazing.

 

23 servers in NL is a handful!!  When I get ready to sign in Eddie gives my 60 server options.

 

Are AIR users getting pampered or what?  LOL!!

Cool edition though may I ask why it is necessary if all the other NL servers are running nowhere near capacity?

Hi,

 

this is a an important question.

 

We have recorded a dramatic increase of clients requiring connections to NL servers in the past weeks and months. With the increase of single connected clients (consider that since April a user can connect simultaneously three clients and also consider that Air user base has grown up considerably during this year), we must take into account different variables to a server load in addition to available bandwidth.

 

CPUs of our servers not only must handle TLS auth and OpenVPN AES-256 encryption/decryption, but also SSH and OpenSSL additional tunnels. There is, so far, no scientific study which determines how the CPU load increases (under the same provided bandwidth) with the increase of connected clients in an OpenVPN server, but empirically it might be not linear (example: 50 clients requiring 1 Mbit/s each stress CPU more than one client requiring 50 Mbit/s does). So, we could have a server that has a line and a port of 1 Gbit/s, but whose CPU gets at capacity before that limit (for example already at 650 Mbit/s). Therefore, in order to respect our commitment to always provide at least 4 Mbit/s per client in at least one server in the world, we add servers before this limit is reached. In the particular case of the Netherlands, we have decided to go beyond our warrant, because customers clearly appear to be very interested in this country.

 

With the current configuration and considering the average numbers of clients connected to Netherlands servers with an excess prudential margin of 20%, we are now able to provide more than 4 Mbit/s per client in the Netherlands alone, even keeping into account potential aforementioned overhead. In the "Top 10 Users Speed", right now, we can see that the topmost 4 clients are all in the Netherlands, ranging from 65 Mbit/s to 40 Mbit/s each.

 

Kind regards

Would you consider adding server CPU usage % on the status page both on the site and in the Eddie client and have it display alongside other usage metrics?

Hi,

 

yes, we'll consider it.
