Los Angeles Data Center

Krypt operates three datacenters in Los Angeles, California at One Wilshire, 600 West 7th Street and 800 South Hope. Our datacenters boast Tier 1 providers with One Wilshire being the largest West Coast POP (point of presence) for all telecom providers.

About Our LAX Datacenters

VPLS - One Wilshire
One Wilshire is one of the World's largest single site IP peering hubs, which is home to over 200 of the largest carriers in the world. VPLS also participates in the Any2Exchange peering exchange with VPLS' CEO Ted Mektrakarn serving on the Board of Directors for Any2Exchange. Through CoreSite's Any2Exchange VPLS has established numerous peers with over 300,000 combined routes or one third of the Internet routes!

VPLS - 600 West 7th
Our datacenter at 600 West 7th Street is home to the some of the largest ISP's in the world. This datacenter has over 450,000 sq. feet of datacenter space, 17 1500KW Generators, 20,000 gallons of diesel fuel on site and much more. All of our Los Angeles locations are secure facilities and feature 24 hour roving security patrols, video surveillance, card access doors and state of the art fire suppression systems.

VPLS - 800 South Hope
Our newest and largest datacenter space was first built out in December 2009 and was home to over 1200 servers a month later. Currently this datacenter houses over 10,000 servers with room for more expansion. Our LAX VPLS Technical Assistance Center (vTAC) is also located on premise where engineers work diligently 24x7 to monitor and support our systems and network.

We Run Our Own Network

That means we are not dependent on providers to make routing changes. If you have problems with a connection, let us know and we'll change the routing to the best possible route we can offer! This kind of service can not be matched anywhere else. We run our own BGP (Border Gateway Protocol out of AS35908 and AS4213) Check out the CIDR reports to see how large the VPLS backbone ranks up!

Krypt's diverse network allows for better routing and peering which gives the user better connectivity. We have a five main colocation centers in Santa Ana, Orange, One Wilshire in downtown Los Angeles, California and 2 other nearby facilities at DIgital Reality Trust and USCOLO. The five sites are connected via a dedicated dual path dark fiber circuits and a 40Gbps DWDM wavelength. We have Tier 1 providers such as 10Gbps to Time Warner Telecom, 10Gbps to Level 3, 10Gbps to Cogent, 10Gbps to Global Crossing, 20Gbps to TINET/Tiscali, 20Gbps to Teliasonera, 10GBps to Hurricance Electric and 10Gbps to China Telecom. With over 100Gbps per second of transit and 20Gbps of local peering at any2Exchange and Equinix LA peering fabrics. All this amounts to one thing, lower pings, no packet loss and no choke.

Although the ping is a good indication of how well your server will likely perform, it should not be the determining factor when choosing a hosting provider. Trace route outputs provide a more detailed routing plan of how you are connected to the server. Since Krypt has multiple data providers we assign customers to various providers based on geographical location, ping, and trace route reports. We do not charge you extra to route through named tier providers such as Level 3 or Time Warner as other companies do.

Your Connection Won't Be Clogged

Don't be fooled by web hosting companies that say they offer 100 Mbps unmetered for less than $150 or so. The reality is that you do get a 100Mbps port, but you're also on a shared switched with 48 or even 96+ users which then has a 100Mbps uplink to the core switch or out to the Internet. What does that mean for you? Simply put, you don't get 100 Mbps if your neighbor and his neighbor are fighting for the same amount of traffic. You'll probably end up getting less than a sustained 2Mbps of average transfer. This leads to collisions, TCP re-transmits and in the end a very non-enjoyable experience if your were an IP packet. This is horrible for video streaming, Camfrog, VoIP, and gaming.

With Krypt Dedicated Unmetered Bandwidth packages you get a server connected to a 100Mbps switched port on a private VLAN, to a switch that is Dual 1Gbps connected to our core switches for redundancy and throughput. We offer 5, 10, 25, 50 and 100Mbps packages. Our switches are never oversubscribed and our providers are Tier 1. There is no cheap or low end transit providers to choose from with us, we'll route you over the best provider that gives you the best latency for whatever it is you need to do.

Krypt is an incompetent, irresponsible, and unreliable company. DO NOT HOST [...]
DO NOT HOST with Krypt!

They are merely a startup company. But that's not why you should'nt host with them. I was referred to Krypt by a employee of theirs who used to work for Softlayer and was my account rep over there. He talked so highly of the Krypt staff and their business model that I got convinced and transferred one of our we b projects over (25+ websites and domains).

They were ok till mid year last year (2013) when they had a "portal update" and their payment system started malfunctioning. This caused numerous problems for us and other clients and yet Krypt and its staff did nothing to resolve the issues.

The first time it happened they terminated our account due to "non-payment" and blamed it on us not paying for the services while we have no intention of such. We have yearly contracts with other hosting providers and paying the hosting payments has never been a problem.

After contacting a supervisor there and making sure the account balance is taken care of [read more...]
