We now include 10Gbps DDoS Protection from attacks on all Vultr Dedicated Cloud (VDC) instances in NY/NJ, free of charge.
Vultr's DDoS system works by dynamically routing traffic from your server when an attack is detected. Attack detection is fully automated based on proprietary detection algorithms, filtering attack traffic while clean traffic is able to reach your servers.
When a DDoS Attack is detected, incoming traffic is re-routed to our Attack Mitigation Farm (AMF) which filters traffic based on specific attributes of the current attack. Clean traffic is tunneled directly to your server in the same data center, ensuring that no packets ever leave our premium low-latency network as one might typically encounter with a 3rd party DDoS Mitigation service provider.
Our DDoS protection works against Layer 3 and Layer 4 attacks.
At this time, DDoS Protection is available for Compute Instances in select locations and included by default with Dedicated Instances (VDC).
Yes, all IP space is monitored for attacks, however DDOS mitigation is only performed for Vultr IP addresses. 3rd party IP space is monitored in the same way and is eligible for automated temporary NULL route protection if an attack exceeds certain heuristics.
DDoS Protection is available in the following locations:
Coming Soon - We will be offering higher protection levels as an add-on subscription in the future.
