Today, (January 31st, 2016), OVPN went from having servers in Sweden to also having servers in Frankfurt, Germany. That means that we have officially launched our service internationally.
As of now, we have a 10 Gbit/s uplink to Cogent and each server has a 10 Gbit/s link. In processing power, each server can handle roughly 3 Gbit/s, and since we have eight servers we have enough processing power to handle 24 Gbit/s.
Whenever we get close to reaching the max capacity of the uplink, we'll get more uplinks in order to continue delivering great speeds to our customers. If needed, we also plan to start peering with DE-CIX, and we might start using multiple ISPs for transit.
We currently have one blade system in the rack, and every node is equipped with a Xeon E3-1241V3 3.5GHz processor, 8 GB RAM, and a 10 GbE Intel NIC. Just like always, these servers run without any permanent media storage.
We can at least fit another two blade systems in the rack, which means another 16 servers, and processing power for 48 Gbit/s.
Below are some pictures of the equipment and the cabinet in Interxion.
