Backup/Storage VM

Backup/Storage VM

edited June 2012 in General

Would any one be intrested in:

Xen/KVM 4 Cores at 2.6Ghz 512MB RAM 80GB RAID 10 HD 1TB BW 100Mbit

Would you guys prefer kvm or xen?

  • If price was decent, yes. Prefer xen.

  • PhilNDPhilND Member

    Price would be $6.95/mo

    I like XEN much better than KVM myself, but KVM seems to be all the rage these days?

  • KVM over Xen. At $7 it would be a nice offer.

  • KVM would probably bet better than XEN although i don't see a reason why a storage VPS doesn't use OpenVZ.

    If it's a storage vps why does it need 4 cores and 512MB of ram? Why would you put a 'storage vps' platform on xen? As far as I'm aware xen doesn't allow overselling of disk space because every container has its own logical volume?

    Why so much ram and cpus? If only for backup/storage.

    @gsrdgrdghd XEN because it's dedicated DISK. @Corey Yeah, XEN uses LVM which is dedicated volumes.

    We wouldn't limit you to strictly 'backups' you could run whatever you like, just think of it as a normal server with alot of disk, perfect for backups.

    Would you consider lower price with less ram/cpu?

    like 1cpu and 32 or 64 mb ram?

    @PhilND you may want to consider IOPS and disk speed as well... not just buying the cheapest largest disks you can because you decided to give people 80GB of disk space you can't oversell (not all your users are going to use all their space).

    @MikHo Probably not, it's not the hardware that is stopping us lowering prices, it's the prices of IP addresses. So $6.95 for the above is probably what we're looking to offer at.

    @Corey The disks are good enterprise drives, in raid 10, it'll be plenty enough for a vps, and if you're pushing tons of IOPS you shouldn't be on a vps(or at least a SSD VPS) right?

    @liamwithers Haha, i didn't mean literally anything it has to abide by the terms of service. I just ment we wont limit you to running just rsync, or just an ftp server.. etc.

    Yeah you should be ok.

    80GB is nothing.... pm some providers i'm sure they'll be willing to hit you up with some disk space.

  • 80GB is nothing for backups. We are using over 1.5TB on our backup node and ~500GB on a second backup server.

    @LiquidHost that's true. But you're a VPS provider. The average joe isn't going to be sticking 1.5TB of data up in VPS if we're talking about full nodes, then no... it probably won't cut it.

    We were going for performance and redundancy in one package, and we're not limiting it to JUST backups.

    I've done some more numbers, 512MB XEN 200GB HD RAID 5 1TB BW 100MBIT $6.95 a month

  • Presumably this is located at Hetzner?

  • @PhilND said: why?

    I might be interested.
