Vilnius, Lithuania – Specialized in a range of high-quality virtual dedicated servers for professionals, the company Time4VPS has introduced an AES-256 encrypted VPN service. The brand new service has been launched to ensure the secure access to various online resources. VPN servers are available on three continents: Europe, North America, and Asia.

According to Time4VPS CEO Arvydas Strausas, nowadays internet users are concerned about their privacy and security. In fact, not all internet apps, such as e-mail, web, messaging, Facebook, etc., are secure. In this case, the VPN service provides extra encryption and security for transferring personal data.


“We use plenty of various applications each day. In fact, not all of them are secure. At the end of the day, insecure browsing can end up with a theft of our passwords and other personal information. Basically, the VPN service is one of the most reliable solutions to protect ourselves from this”, – says Mrs. Strausas.

By encrypting internet traffic, VPN service helps to avoid leaking of such personal data as user’s online activity or web browsing history to the third parties. For example, advertisers. Also, VPN protects against cyber criminals when using low-security networks, such as public Wi-Fi hotspot, and helps to evade country restriction.

Time4VPS offers a ready-to-use and easy to set up VPN service that allows using P2P safely. L2TP and OpenVPN protocols are available to perform fast speed, even on connections with a high latency and across great distances.

About Time4VPS
Time4VPS is a part of Lithuanian company “Interneto Vizija” which was founded in 2003 and has quickly grown to serve more than 100,000 clients across 110 different countries. Time4VPS operates its own TIER III data center in Vilnius, the geographic midpoint of Europe, with high-speed communication networks and highly qualified specialists. By combining affordable and scalable options with enterprise-level technology, Time4VPS is able to supply its customers with self-managed full-access VPS services with Linux and Windows operating systems, as well as VPN and Storage services.

COLUMBIA, MISSOURI — Bluebird Network, a Midwest telecommunications company, has begun an expansion of its Bluebird Underground Data Center, located in a Springfield Missouri underground mine. The expansion design is underway and the project will go to bid in late May.

This expansion represents an additional 4,700 square-feet of white space, bringing the total to 22,300 square-feet. The entire data center currently occupies 80,000 square-feet of mine space, with the remaining space being dedicated to critical mechanical and electrical support systems.


In addition to the increased white space, the expansion includes a third 2MW generator, another Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system and a 10,000 gallon auxiliary fuel storage tank. With these improvements, the Bluebird Underground Data Center can independently operate for up to four days on generator power, deliver additional A/B power to its customers and improve the overall operational performance of the data center.

All elements of this expansion will be located underground, continuing its’ design strategy of placing all critical mechanical and electrical systems underground to ensure operational stability. This unique approach leverages the full protection provided by the data center’s natural surroundings, ensuring the best shield from both natural and unnatural disasters.

This expansion is the second of three planned since Bluebird Network acquired the data center in 2014. The first expansion, completed in 2016, added approximately 4,000 square-feet of white space. The third expansion will represent approximately 7,000 square-feet of additional white space in the future.

“This expansion will increase the physical size of the data center and will augment our current processes to make the facility stronger,” says Michael Morey, President and CEO of Bluebird Network. “We will provide space to meet increased demand while enhancing our overall services.”

About Bluebird Network
Bluebird Network, headquartered in Columbia, Missouri, was formed by integrating Bluebird Media, Missouri Network Alliance, and Illinois Network Alliance. In 2014, an underground data center was acquired and created Bluebird Underground, adding a data center facility to the Bluebird suite of services. Today, the network has over 6,000 fiber route miles of high-speed broadband and fiber-optic connections. The Bluebird fiber network also has over 135 Points of Presence (POP) sites spanning the Midwest, including the major cities of Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, Springfield, Tulsa, Omaha, Des Moines, and Memphis.
