Bandwidth Pooling

Customers with two or more Mammoth VPS automatically have bandwidth pooling enabled: the ability to combine each VPS data usage limit into a combined, total limit.

If you have two VPS and your first VPS reaches its data limit, data consumption will be recorded against the second VPS until both have reached their limit. More generally, this is how it works:

  • As your VPS consumes data, it is added to your monthly "data used" counter.
  • If your VPS reaches its data limit, we will check your other VPS to find the VPS that has consumed the least data and add the data usage onto that VPS.
  • Eventually, all your VPS might reach their data limit, after which further data used will be recorded normally and billed as excess data.
