*Listed rates are monthly estimates, as configured. Prices are for United States data centers only. Not all configurations are available in all data centers. Resources charged hourly, even when bare metal servers are powered off. Monthly estimates based on 720 hours in a month, 30.42 days in a month 4.35 weeks in a month based on available locations. Charges are presented in the Estimator as a point in time estimate based on selections you choose in the tool, and as of the date it is created. The estimate cannot and should not be relied on as a final monthly price and is not a guarantee of the actual amounts you will owe and be responsible for paying if you elect to purchase and activate Edge Computing Solutions. Monthly estimate of charges does not reflect variability of month-to-month usage, applicable monthly recurring charges or any other setup fees, taxes, connectivity, bandwidth or other applicable charges or fees associated with activated services. Lumen reserves the right to update this pricing estimator and prices presented on it at any time without notice. Does not include operating system/software licensing cost.

FAQs

Each server is assigned its own IPv4 /29 subnet. The first three IP addresses are assigned to the upstream routers, with the fourth address assigned to the server. The 5th and 6th IP addresses are unassigned and you can use then on your server.

  • 1st IP – router default gateway
  • 2nd IP – reserved for router1
  • 3rd IP – reserved for router2
  • 4th IP – assigned to server
  • 5th IP – unused/available
  • 6th IP – unused/available

Currently, we don't support additional IP space. You can use only the /29 subnet that is assigned to the server.

Each Edge Bare Metal size server has four 25-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, with two interfaces on each of two separate NIC cards. By default, all four interfaces are placed into a single link access group (LAG) or bond utilizing LACP for individual link monitoring.

Each server connects to two switches: 2x 25GE to switch A and 2x 25GE to switch B. These switches are in the same physical rack as the server. Each of these switches have multiple 100GE fiber connections to multiple other switches in the data center that create an ethernet switching fabric. This switching fabric can sustain full traffic capacity with any single switch or link failure.

Note: This switch redundancy means that a server can always expect up to 50 Gbps of throughput, even if one of its directly connected switches were to fail. While a server does have 100 Gbps of total bandwidth capacity, half of that is redundant.

Egress from the data center’s switch fabric to either the Internet (AS3356) or the MPLS IP VPN network (AS3549) is provided by two diverse provider edge (PE) routers—one pair for each network. These PE pairs connect to a corresponding pair of switches in the fabric. Traffic can be forwarded through both PEs and will switch over automatically upon failure of a PE, switch, or the link between them. This dual-routing path is important to remember when using traceroutes or other reporting. PE1 may be active today but PE2 becomes the active path tomorrow.
