Icon KYAU Network

KYAU Network is powered by Arch Linux and KYAU Labs. While once utilizing dedicated servers to power, everything is now located on-site via the local KYAU Labs datacenter with external access being routed through a VPS using a Wireguard VPN. KYAU Labs chiefly utilizes Kernel-based Virtual Machines (KVM) to separate services onto separate virtual machines (VMs). Each VM and/or VPS is setup using kyaulabs/aarch.

Icon Security & Reliability

Our network has been setup with security and reliability as our two primary focus points. Our DNS server has been setup to achieve an A+ with 100% in all four categories on DNS Spy. Our web server, running nginx with Let's Encrypt SSL certificates, has been setup to achieve an A+ rating with 100 points in every category on SSL Labs.

Icon Why Arch Linux?

Arch Linux was an in-house decision not taken lightly, in 2013 the switch from FreeBSD to Arch Linux was made without regret. Running Arch Linux on a server in a production environment is very feasible, provided you know a bit about security and keep on top of advisories. That being said we do not live in a perfect world, and server logs are proof of that.

Icon Shell Box

The shell box was decommissioned on April 25th, 2018 when all of our services were brought in-house. It is possible that it might be revived at a later date, but don't count on it.
