Transparency report: October 2014

author David Wibergh, about Status & transparency reports

One of OVPN’s goals is to be transparent. Because of this we decided to publish the traffic loads and statistics for each of our servers every month.

This is the first of many monthly reports that we will post here.

Summary

We succeeded in keeping an uptime of at least 99.5% during October. It’s clear that we aren’t even close to our maximum capacity, which leaves room for more future customers.

In addition to providing a fast service we also work on maintaining great physical security in the Stockholm datacenter. In March we will increase the physical security even more in Malmö, and will at the same time start offering our Multihop add-on.
