RE: InterNAP - any comments?
One thing to keep in mind with InterNAP is that they are not so much a Transit provider in the usual sense as a broker of Transit from the major providers... The upshot is that there's an extra AS hop (theirs) in your paths. If you're single-homed or have connections only to InterNAP, this is probably fine... Their route quality and SLAs are well-managed by all accounts. However, it gets trickier if you try to multihome (with multiple providers). In order to balance properly on both inbound and outbound, you may have to do some serious tweaking on your connections to all of your non-InterNAP BGP sessions. YMMV... It's been a few months since I last talked to them, so they may have worked out a new scheme by now.

Very good. At point we had three DS3s going to them. Now we're down to one DS3 circuit. Very reliable service, very clueful NOC, excellent notification of all work performed ahead of time, circuit outages, BGP flaps etc.. Been with them for three years now. -----Original Message----- From: matthew zeier [mailto:[email protected]] Sent: Monday, February 04, 2002 3:04 PM To: [email protected] Subject: InterNAP - any comments? I'm looking at InterNAP as a provider. Anyone have any comments on them? -- matthew zeier - "In mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them." - Johann von Neumann
