Limestone Networks Launches Dallas-based IaaS Cloud Hosting Platform

Limestone Networks, an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider of enterprise-grade dedicated servers, cloud servers and reseller hosting, has launched its LSN Cloud. Powered by Intel SSD drives, the new cloud hosting platform is located in a data center in Dallas.

Designed with enterprise clients in mind, LSN Cloud was built to provide high availability, performance and scalability. Using technologically advanced network equipment and hardware, including Intel SSD drives for speed, Juniper rack-level switches, Cisco core routers, Supermicro chassis with redundant power and dual Intel Xeon E5 series hypervisors, Limestone Networks’ cloud hosting platform would be ready for the most demanding business applications.

“Our core principles when designing LSN Cloud were high availability, performance and scalability,” said Ryan Gelobter, IT Manager, Limestone Networks. “These principles extend not only to our network, but also to our hardware. We are utilizing stacking features from Cisco and Juniper to provide the high level of redundancy that LSN Cloud demanded. Every switch has at least 20Gbps of capacity to our core routers which is easily upgradeable to 40Gbps. 100Gbps is possible in the future. We use only Intel Xeon processors and Intel SSDs in our hypervisors which gives us fast and reliable performance.”

LSN Cloud is located in a Tier 3+ data center where it uses Tier 1 fiber carriers for optimal data transmission. Located in the former Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, Limestone Networks’ data center is a stone fortress with government-grade security features and maximum failover.
