    Windows can be run on 256MB RAM?

    Btw its not advisable to give the ip for DRAC out!

  • @DanielM said: Btw its not advisable to give the ip for DRAC out!

    +1 Not a good idea at all.

    And @DanielM we have people running Windows on 128MB.

    How? :L unless your using win 98 or somet?

  • @DanielM said: How? :L unless your using win 98 or somet?

    Win 2003 does too I think in 128mb

    I use http://tuxlite.com to configure all my VPSes and I love it!

    I cant say for sure since i tend to avoid Windows at all costs, all i know is i can see people running Windows 2003 on Tiny (128MB) plans..

  • I use one of these as pretty much my only remaining LEB after the VMPort disappointment/OpenVZ hostage situation.

    Its been completely solid.

    I think the post just means Windows is available, you can run 2k3 web edition on 256 but I would not suggest running 2k8 on anything less than 768, or mayby 2k8 web on 512.

    Will post some bench marks.

    Also as a general tip, if your paying your host for Windows make sure its legal :) (SPLA etc.)

    VMPort and disappointment in one sentence, the wounds are still fresh dude.

    On a side note, props to NECS as that's some sh*t hot I/O. What disks are you using, 10K SAS? And @AnthonySmith, is that with virtio drivers?

  • :p its ok, was not targeting your personally, rather the entity known as VMport that offered OpenVZ as a replacement for KVM.

    Anyway sorry to derail, results will follow.



  • necsnecs Member

    The disks are 6Gb/s SAS, RAID 10. The trick is setting up the LV as the default settings were about 30%+slower. However, as you know you cannot always guarantee the I/O on a shared environment...

  • @GetKVM_Ash yes virto.

    Jebus... this made me consider the quality of my own services :s

    Not sure I have ever seen a 3000+ one.

    I might try out your VPS service they seem extremely cheap :D

  • @AnthonySmith said: Jebus... this made me consider the quality of my own services :s

    Anthony, what cpu do you use ATM?

    @necs said: 4 x vCPU cores

    What are the specs of the node?

  • @prometeus E3-1270

    This VPS has:

    model name      : QEMU Virtual CPU version (cpu64-rhel6)

    I am not sure how to get the specific model in a KVM guest?



  • @AnthonySmith said: I am not sure how to get the specific model in a KVM guest?

    forgot this is a kvm offer :-)

    Your E3-1270 are good as far as I've seen with my boxes.

    Let's wait @necs to unveil the cpu mistery :-)
