Transparency Report: March 2015

David Wibergh, about Status & transparency reports

This is the sixth summary we publish that reports the amount of traffic passing through our servers, uptime and traffic spikes.

We had no planned downtime in March and no server experienced any operational problems. However, our website went down 20 minutes on March 28, causing connection problems for people during that time.

On March 13, we launched four new servers in Malmö. These servers will not be included in the summary as they were not in production for the entire month. On the 31st of March our old server in Malmö (VPN01) was permanently taken out of production, which means that the migration from Excellent Hosting to Bredband2 is complete. VPN01 is included in the summary since the server was in production all of March.

On March 13th we updated the DNS settings for vpn01.prd.malmo.ovpn.com to the new IP address.

Summary

We managed to maintain an uptime of at least 99.5%. The volume of traffic increased very much in March - but since much of that traffic was handled by our new servers in Malmö, it is not that visible in the information above.

OVPN has grown rapidly but March takes all records. OVPN has over 1800 customers as of this writing. It is very clear that our great focus on transparency and security is appreciated and that OVPN is a very competitive VPN provider.

Although OVPN grew so much in March, we have a lot of capacity left to bring in new customers while ensuring high speeds for our current customers. We are able to manage and encrypt 20 Gbps at present - although we usually only use between 1 to 2 Gbps.

We currently have eight servers in operation and we are already planning expansions to more cities in Sweden. Our biggest priority today is to place four servers in Gothenburg and afterwards place four servers in Umeå.

Our hope is to expand to Gothenburg & Umeå in 2015 so that we can provide even faster connections for people who do not live near Malmö or Stockholm.
