100G DDoS Protection is a unique service that Sharktech provides our dedicated server customers that expect DDoS attacks that exceed our standard DDoS protection limit, currently set at 40Gbps.
This service spreads incoming attacks using BGP across all of our data centers leveraging our total bandwidth available and our DDoS protection hardware located at each site. The IPs provided for the 100G DDoS protection are unique and differ from the standard IPs assigned to your server. The reason behind that is these IPs belong to prefixes that are being advertised across all of our data centers using anycast.
Anytime communication is initiated with a 100G IP the closest BGP path is selected for incoming traffic and reaches one of our data centers where it goes through our network and DDoS protection system than it is transported via GRE to the network hosting your service, your service would than respond back to communication through the local network. This means the traffic path is asymmetric (incoming traffic is going through to your service by a different path than outgoing).
A few things are worth considering when choosing 100G DDOS protection:
