Transparency report: February 2016

author David Wibergh, about Status & transparency reports

This is the monthly transparency report for February 2016. In the previous transparency report we stated that traffic statistics will be presented for each datacenter instead of for each single server. This was decided for the purpose of readability as a total of 24 servers are now operated by OVPN.

OVPN had one instance of downtime in February affecting the website and our DNS servers. The downtime lasted for 30 minutes and was caused by a power outage.

Summary

Our VPN servers had an overall uptime of 100 % during February. OVPN nearly broke the previous traffic record as a total of 767 TB was encrypted through our servers.

OVPN also officially expanded to the international market in February. Marketing towards the new markets has slowly been initiated during February. Among other things, we’ve created a Facebook page, a Twitter account and an Instagram account. We encourage you to like and follow these accounts in order to receive quick updates and news about OVPN.

It’s also worth mentioning that the servers in Frankfurt currently have American IP addresses. Thus, accessing American streaming services can be achieved by connecting to these servers.

Below you’ll find performance numbers and statistics for our datacenters in Stockholm, Malmö and Frankfurt.
