So I've set up 2 VMs (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS) on Windows Azure. Both are located in Asia - as far as I know Singapore and Hong Kong. Since ICMP is disabled (and I'm unable to enabled it) you can run traceroute.

  • It's 30-day trial right?

  • No, we are in BizSpark and we can run up to 12 extra small VMs each month for free for 3 years.

    Thanked by 1Satellite
  • I got DreamSpark from my education, but no free offers for me I think :(

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

  • OK few first impressions:

    Cons: - no ICMP support (simply saying it's not possible to ping it), - no IPv6 support, - since no ICMP it's not possible to setup HE.NET tunnel,

    Pros: - amazing management panel, - easy setup, - good connectivity, - good locations (East and West US, West and North Europe, East and South-East Asia), - you can prepare your own VHD with any Linux OS an provision it to Azure

    Total score: 8/10

    They have a free trial as well (German) Cheapest windows 'VPS' is ca. 7EUR / month, not bad.

  • @William - as far as I know for Windows you need to activate it with your own license key :(

  • Thanks. I've been playing with it as well, mainly because of MSDN.

    Their panel is awesome, I agree.

    I could do without the "endpoint" configuration stuff.

    I wish it had a console. I changed my SSH port without setting up the right "endpoint" and had to reinstall the OS. Be extra careful with iptables :-)

    The inability to resize disk is a pain, though not fatal - you can create a new one, move things over, nuke the old.

    I have reported a serious bug. If you detach a disk without unmounting it in the VM OS, the VM crashes.

    I do wish you could put the OS disk on a persistent disk. That to me is really a headache. I've been creating scripts to do all post-install config, since if the VM's disk dies (it's raid, etc. but still) and the VM moves, I could start with a blank OS.

    Overall...I prefer EC2. But honestly I prefer a good VPS provider to either, because of the more generous bandwidth, console access, and the ability to buy the provider's stickers.
