Infrastructure

Here at AzireVPN we have a penchant for doing everything in-house.

Custom hardware

We own the custom designed diskless hardware we use to host the VPN services on, unlike others who rent servers from their data centers. It helps us not only to find issues or vulnerabilities and tweak the hardware but also to prevent any act of foulplay. We co-locate the hardware and install it in the respective datacenters ourselves.

Our hardware

Custom designed servers from Supermicro.

  • No storage
  • Multi-gigabit connections
  • GNU/Linux
  • No storage

    We removed the harddrives in our servers, all to make sure that no data is being saved.

  • Multi-gigabit connections

    All servers are connected with multiple gigabit connections to our 10GE backbone.

  • GNU/Linux

    We use a custom built GNU/Linux distribution running on read-only RAM disks.

  • Master (M)

    Master server is used for image deployment and provisioning, hidden in secret locations.

  • Slave (S)

    Our slave servers are running in all locations and used for PXE and configuration management.

  • VPN (V)

    Read-only VPN servers booted on diskless systems with on-demand scaling.

We use a unified provision system to boot all VPN servers remote from our encrypted boot servers. This enables us to run our environment in a secure read-only state and easily boot up new servers on demand.


Multiple VPN servers in different locations

As of now, we have multiple VPN servers in United Kingdom, United States, Spain and not forgetting our home country, Sweden. Each location has ample servers uniformally setup and there is no room for any discrimination in terms of features at all.
