10Gbps - 40Gbps Dedicated Server
Provider A and Provider B both provide you a server with a 10Gb - 40Gb Uplink. But this is just a small piece of the high capacity deployment. Throughput can be dramatically reduced by the number of servers on the same switch. Also the capacity of the switches uplinks. At Active Cloud we deploy a scenario similar to provider A. We limit the amount of 10Gb servers on one switch and 10Gb Servers are connected to the same switches as our 100Mb and 1Gb servers. One server cannot degrade another servers throughput. On the other hand Provider B will oversell the switch. Installing many 10Gb servers while only having a single 10Gb connection to the internet. This will severely impact your throughput as your packets will be competing with others to get to the internet. Higher quality service does come at a price. You will find that provider A is priced more expensively than B. Which ties back to the old saying "You get what you pay for."
