Alpha 17 World Sizes and How it Affects You Dear Current and Future Valued Customers, We have created a new tiered pricing structure based on slots for higher world sizes for the 7 Days to Die Alpha 17 release. This decision was not made lightly and it took us weeks to decide on what we were going to do as we know exactly how much of an impact such a change would have for our customer base. This change has been in testing for a couple months now and we are constantly evaluating as we go. This new pricing structure has been in place for a week after A17 launched and will be in place for the foreseeable future. As always pricing is subject to change throughout development stages of 7 Days to Die. 8192km or less 12 or more slots 12288km or less 30 or more slots 16384km or less 40 or more slots The amount of memory that these new world sizes use can take up to 10GB of RAM or more. This is a huge difference to the way the game now handles worlds and memory usage compared to the previous versions before A17. We are one of the, if not the actual, largest 7 Days to Die server hosts. With the amount of 7 Days to Die servers we host across our network we would be completely overloaded if we opened map sizes to all of our 7 Days to Die server customers. As a result we have had to create a new pricing structure that covers the memory usage but still provides an affordable competitive price. The changes [...]
Germany has been one of our larger EU data-center locations for a very long time now and we decided it was time to spruce it up! We finally migrated to a new data-center and upgraded all of our hardware to Intel i7-8700 Coffee Lake chips. These chips are the latest from Intel and have 6 cores with 12 threads instead of the regular 4 cores / 8 threads with all other previous i7 generation chips. On top of these brand new chips are the NVMe SSD drives in every single one of these new bad boys. The top of the line SSD drives ensure the fastest load times and least amount of save lag for your service. This upgrade makes our Germany location the most updated data-center we currently have in terms of technology. SHOP NOW

We do this without requiring our customers to sign any minimum contract terms and give our customers the ability to cancel services at any point no questions asked.

This kind of service and support has been available in our Sydney, AUS location and we are now expanding our operations to the western coast of Australia as well!

After careful consideration we are happy to announce that Squad rentals are now cheaper! We have reduced Squad pricing from $1.10/slot to $0.99/slot across the board. We have worked in tandem with the Squad developers throughout the development stages and they have done a fantastic job optimizing the dedicated software for Squad. We will continue to monitor the dedicated server performance and we will revise pricing if more optimizations allow for it.
The Johannesburg, South Africa facility is not in a direct flight path or low lying area and is centrally located between Johannesburg and Pretoria with a major power substation close by. A geotechnical audit has been done to ensure ground stability. This great new location will allow us to serve a more global community by offering our service and reputation to more people than ever before. Our fully redundant, physically separated A+B feeds provide power to the facility. This means that a single utility power feed can be disconnected without affecting your service. Equipment with a single power supply also benefits from this redundancy through our sophisticated static transfer switch design. The average power per square meter is 3.5 kW / m2. These features coupled with UPS backup and a standby generator on each feed provide even further resilience. Our network is multi-homed with multiple up-links per data center via our upstream providers, EOH Carrier Services and Metrofibre Networx. Should a network failure occur, traffic is automatically rerouted via alternate uplinks, significantly increasing our network resilience. Connectivity is provided through diverse, redundant fibre routes connecting the facility to a 10Gbps fibre ring. We’ve partnered with INX-ZA to extend the reach of the Johannesburg Internet Exchange (JINX). Temperature and humidity conditions are within the generally acceptable boundaries set by the American Society of Heating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). All our air conditioning units have N+2 redundancy. When ambient temperature allows for it, we make use of direct free cooling, significantly reducing our power consumption and carbon footprint. Juniper offers a high-performance network infrastructure with a highly responsive environment for accelerating the deployment of services. The virtual chassis technology increases the redundancy and resilience of [...]
