NEW YORK - March 31, 2014 - PRLog -- After completingour initialASsetup lastmonth (AS18845 –Castlegem Inc.),withInit7 and AtlanticMetro as transit feeds,wehave already taken the next stepahead. We are bringingaboard Staminus forDDOS mitigation,and Cogentas transitcarrierto complementoursetup.

Staminusare wellknown fortheirexcellent DDOSmitigation service,and the fact that they are local,in New York,made thechoice even easier. The setup willbe complete shortly,and clients willthen have the option to choose virtualprivate server (VPS),dedicated server,and colocation plans that come with DDOS protected IPs.

Cogentwas chosenfor3 reasons:1)They are present at allmajor (and even not so major)internet exchanges– this will reduce ASpaths globallywhere othercarriers do notPoP. 2) They offer routes that others do not,bringing both extensive reachability and redundancy into the game. 3) Theyare competitive.

We have a long history withCogent in Manchester,theirreliability,support,andstability –not asingle unplanned outage – helped us favouring them,and after confirming network performance from New York, the decision wasmadeto bring them into ourBGP mix. Incidentally,this willalsobenefit ourtradingclients as many companies involved in trading in New York have Cogentas transitfeed.
