Monthly Bandwidth Question.


New Member
We already have a couple dedicated servers with Interserver and was thinking of getting one of the small atom servers with a couple hard drives SW raided to use, mainly to dump backups to over scp.

My question is since the servers are on the same local network, and the traffic doesn't traverse the internet, would traffic between servers be counted in the monthly allotment?

There are two options:

1) If its just for backups, an unmetered port can be used and you'll never go over your limit. Since its internal only sales will be able to set something like this up in a similar price point as non-unmetered.

2) Setting up a local network can be done so traffic doesn't count on the external port, or just have only an internal network.

In a standard set up there is no way to tell between local traffic (in the dc) vs external traffic.
