So tell me about this new Newark, NJ datacenter

How does it compare to the others? Who runs it? Specs? Stats?

Does it block any services like Atlanta? What DDoS protection is there?

From what I've heard, it's at Net Access Corporation (NAC), and doesn't block ports, but does limit whoises to 10/hour. (And I can confirm that nac.net shows up in traceroute…)

If NAC did block ports like Atlanta, I kind of doubt Linode would have chosen them. Linode didn't know Atlanta blocked so much when they signed up, but Atlanta refuses to change their policies.

Fat pipes, null routes, and my Cancel Customer button.

thanks.

What's the expected down-time for switching from e.g. atlanta to the new datacenter in newark ?

Five to ten minutes per Gig of images to be transferred, plus the time to shut down at your old DC and boot at the new one.

this might be a stupid question but does the ~10 mins per GB apply to the used or the total GBs of my image ?

I'm asking cause i currently use about 1.5GB out of 10GB so the difference is quite significant.

It applies to your total disk image(s), including your swap image. You can always reduce the size of your image before initiating the migration to speed up the process.

Huh? Of all the things to limit, whois seems like an odd one.

/me shrugs. I heard it on IRC. It may not be true.
