More 80 Slot Server Providers?

Recommended Posts

From what I am seeing, in the US the only 80 slot providers that are authorized as licensed server providers are ViLayer and Host Havoc.  This is kind of disappointing since I was looking to create a more central U.S. server specifically Kansas City, MO since it has has the best latency balance for both costs.  Our test were showing 80 ms and under latency for either cost if not less from Kansas City which is very playable. But the only provider that offers this is ViLayer which from all accounts appears to be a three person company with bad customer support.  Host Havoc on the other hand has there most central location as Chicago, IL which gives a latency of around 100 ms  to 120 ms for people on the west coast.


Has anyone had any luck with standing up hardware in another hosting provider and getting it licensed as well?  What kind of hardware has anyone here hosted a server on that would allow for an 80+ slot server with smooth game play?


And before you try to get into why I need to have good latency from either cost it's because I will have admins/friends that will be located on both costs of the U.S. that will also want to play on the server.

Sounds like you could go with the dedicated server approach and then get your server licensed that way.

Obviously you would require some sort of technical knowhow if you would want to run your own server, but given the prices of 80 slot servers currently (~80-90$) it is a valid alternative. 
I'm from Europe and here you can get a good Intel Core i7-4770 (~4Ghz) dedicated server for 42$/m (+25 if you want to use Windows) which would allow you to run 3-4 Squad servers at the same time.

If you want to run a 80 players server you will need a very high per-core cpu frequency, around 4Ghz+ is usually fine.
