Dallas, TX – Limestone Networks, a leading cloud IaaS, dedicated server hosting, and colocation provider, has unveiled a complete product line refresh with a focus on the increasing trend toward dense, high throughput bare-metal servers. They have introduced new high-end single and dual processor servers to their product lines. “Our custom spec build department has seen a significant uptick in high core-count, high throughput dual-processor server requests over the last 12 months”, VP Preston Gosdin states, “so satisfying that need with our new standard stock offering was a top priority. Customers no longer need to special order high end CPUs such as the E5-2690 v4, because they are now included as normal stock servers on our order form.” Also offered are the new E3-1200 v6 series CPUs, along with the high core-count E5-1600 v4 CPUs.

Limestone expects the trend toward these high-end offerings to continue as more and more customers virtualize, containerize, and cloud-enable their applications. Bundle these new server offerings with Limestone’s top notch managed support packages, high-end network, and diverse software licensing options, to experience quality hosting at unrivaled prices in the bare-metal hosting market.


To set themselves completely apart from the competition, Limestone also announced that 100 TB (terabytes) of outbound bandwidth is now included with all normal stock dedicated server packages. In this market quality hosting companies rarely offer more than 30TB of bandwidth bundles with their servers, Limestone has changed the game by offering this extremely high throughput on servers costing as little as $138 per month. This offering is on Limestone’s world class hosting network comprising of more than 100 GBps of internet capacity, 5+ carriers, and soon expanding to multiple regions. The value of this default bandwidth availability is another example of how Limestone Networks is leading the dedicated hosting industry to the next level.

If you are in the hosting business and are seeking a hosting provider with a proven network, and now a new product lineup that includes high end single and dual CPUs or high core-count CPUs, then Limestone Networks should be on your list of established cloud, IaaS and dedicated server hosting providers.
