The BigScoots Network

Our high-performance, fully redundant network utilizes routing and switching products from the top leaders in the industry. We provide the best network equipment (carrier grade Cisco and Juniper) to help optimize overall network and routing performance, and provide the lowest latency and jitter. This is perfect for trading, voice services, and game service providers. A fully redundant 10 Gigabit Ethernet infrastructure is used across the entire core of the network to reduce the risks of internal congestion due to DDoS attacks and to maintain optimal flexibility and performance.

Our network is fully meshed, using OSPF, and redundant with a wide selection of backbone providers, and supplemented by our peering network which consists of over 100 direct peering relationships including Amazon, Facebook, Cox Communications, Cablevision, and many, many more. We took care in choosing our carriers; our research showed them to be some of the fastest and most reliable networks available, resulting in us utilizing some of the largest carriers in the world, like Level3, NTT, and Tata. Since 2009, our data center has been a leader in IPv6 connectivity allowing all of our customers to take advantage of the new features and advantages of IPv6.


Level(3) is one of the world's largest and most reliable carriers. Nine out of ten of the world's largest telecom carriers all continue to use Level(3) services, as do five of the top six U.S. Internet Service Providers, and nine out of ten of the largest European telecom carriers. The company operates a 22,500 mile broadband fiber optic network in 72 US markets and 20 European markets.

gtt networks

GTT is the combination of Tinet's extensive Tier 1 network which includes over 100 IP/MPLS PoPs covering the most Europe, the USA, Canada and APAC and GTT's extensive legacy-free IP backbone. Based on the amount of Internet traffic on GTT's IP backbone, it is among the largest Internet carriers worldwide: the company operates one of the top 5 IP network backbones and one of the largest IPv6 networks worldwide.

Pure SSD vs. SSD Accelerated

Pure SSD Storage

Services with Pure SSD Storage can deliver extremely high random as well as sequential reads and writes offering ultra-high disk performance. This means that whether you are running a basic Wordpress website, a high stress database or application, enjoy a very large number of concurrent visitors on a regular basis, or anything in between, big or small, a Pure SSD service will increase its performance.

Our Pure SSD servers have at least 128GB RAM and 32 CPU cores utilizing only the latest enterprise grade, highly redundant equipment. The SSD drives themselves yield upwards of 150,000 IOPS each and are configured in a redundant hardware RAID10 cached environment. With the much higher hardware cost, you sacrifice capacity for performance.

SSD Accelerated Storage

Services with SSD Accelerated Storage provide far higher than average disk performance with the added benefit of maintaining the disk capacity of traditional drives. Standard workloads such as small traffic websites, production webservers or mid-traffic database driven sites that require higher storage than our Pure SSD solutions offer are ideal candidates.

Our SSD Accelerated services are built using the latest LSI CacheCade technology[!]. CacheCade works by having a SSD array, otherwise known as flash cache in front of the primary disk array thereby accelerating all incoming reads and writes. It dynamically keeps the hottest (most accessed) data stored on the SSD array so you can be sure that your most critical parts of your website or application are always moving at near-SSD speeds. While significantly faster than non-SSD accelerated hosting environments, there is still a performance decrease from our Pure SSD solutions – you are sacrificing performance for added storage.
