​First off, I am quite a fan of AirVPN.  There isn't much I can complain about, just a few questions about future access to your servers around the world.

​A quote from AirVPN to Torrentfreaks's annual VPN survey:

​Q: 11. Do you have physical control over your VPN servers and network or are they hosted by/accessible to a third party? Do you use your own DNS servers?

 

 

​A: 11. Our servers are housed in data centers which we have physical access to, provided that the access is arranged well in advance for security reasons. Access to servers is also guaranteed to the data center technicians, for any need of on-site support.

​I have worked around DCs quite a bit and I understand the pros and cons of their physical security.  As well as the techs that work on these servers, I was one for a while.  This being said, do you see the future of AirVPN moving these servers away from Co-location racks and placing them on-premise? 

​If not, are you looking to rent your own cages within these DCs along with your own techs to keep these servers locked down to only people with AirVPN embroidered on their shirts?

​Thanks for your time,

To me, this sounds like a much more expensive solution (maybe I'm wrong?). Overall, I think AirVPN's current approach strikes a balance between reasonable security practices and affordability. Of course, there is always more that could be done - servers housed in nuclear shelters outside any jurisdiction - but at the end of the day this should also be subject to a cost-benefit-analysis. I'd like those t-shirts, though!
