Hello guys, I was looking at LEB for providers that's located in Los Angeles. So far I think urpad looks promising. Have you tried them? Can you guys give a review / benchmark / uptime stat.

Thanks.

    Hostigation.

    Thanks Jack, will keep an eye on them. Have you tried their services? How is it? Thanks

    i've got hostigation. I'm a big fan of their stuff. i would spring for kvm if you're willing to trade a little bit more money for much better control over your system.

    Hostigation comes highly recommended and tim runs a tight ship, I would go with hostigation!

    I haven't used urpad much, but what I did use I liked it and they have a pretty good reputation. As for hostigation, I've got little to say about it. Why? Because it works. It's a good place to drop your stuff and forget about it because he runs a pretty tight ship.

  • I have also heard only good stuff about hostigation :) Many people suggest them, so they must be good.

    Hi @HalfEatenPie

    What mode are you on? Most of our nodes that are on raid10 get well over 150/200 MB/s disk IO, you might be on a node we didn't upgrade to raid10 yet, let me know the node and I'd be happy to let you know when that node is planned for an upgrade or migrate you to a raid10 server

    All new orders are setup on raid10 servers for optimal disk IO.

    Thanks!

  • TaylorTaylor Member

    @HalfEatenPie said: URPad I only get 10M/s I/O

    Did you submit a ticket? That is very bad IO that would not even be suitable for a webserver.

    @Taylor

    Many thanks for your contribution to this thread.

    Yeah not sure why he is getting such results, even raid1 servers get at least 50 and we have retired or upgraded most servers on a RAID1 array already.

    As mentioned above I have no problem working with @HalfEatenPie to get this resolve with him.

    Thats nice to see you understand the need for such speeds (:

  • URPad are great in Los Angeles. I had a VPS with them in LA for a month and dropped it only because I didn't have a use for it. IO speeds were A++.

    Hostigation and VPS6 are also great in LA.

    @Taylor I did submit a ticket and was told it's normal (on multiple occasions). I've contacted @FTN_Kevin about it and we'll see if we can come to a resolution. :)

    @FTN_Kevin and I are working it out.

    Anyways besides this isolated incident I will admit URPad has a pretty awesome support (24/7 at the LEAST) and its been mostly stable. I'd still recommend them as long as you don't fall to bad luck like I did :P

    Granted I also recommend hostigation. Both of them "you're in good hands" (TM Allstate)

    @FTN_Kevin is Sierra RAID1 or RAID10?

  • HalfEatenPieHalfEatenPie Member
    edited July 2012

    Well I feel like a jerk. But yeah URPad support is awesome enough that @FTN_Kevin just left HostCon to run some tests for me on the LA node.

    In my defense, I didn't ask for him to leave HostCon! (didn't know he was there!) and I told him he could hold off on it till later! So please no pitchforks and torches! (or knives and forks!)

    Do you mean the server load?

  • @rgenzon said: Are they still doing promotions on LEB? Haven't seen any in quite a long time

    Last one was in February. But saying they won/tied the top provider award in the past, I figured they at least deserved a mention.

    Sierra is on RAID10.

    @FTN_Kevin this is why I'm confused. Our hardware node is RAID1 Configuration with 100Mbit port speed, Urpad

  • laaevlaaev Member

    @LAKid said: this is why I'm confused. Our hardware node is RAID1 Configuration with 100Mbit port speed, Dylan Shelton

    I know you had multiple VPS's with us, some were on RAID1 before so perhaps Dylan was misinformed, disk IO tests will show its RAID10, I know personally that Sierra is RAID10.

    I'll definitely speak with Dylan about this.

  • LAKidLAKid Member

    It's not a big deal, but you mentioned above that the i/o supposed to be around 100, but I never had close to even 60(not a big deal really), so I just wanted to know. No complaints, no buts, anyway..:)

  • laaevlaaev Member
    edited July 2012

    Just ran a dd test on Sierra and got 150 MB/s, are you sure running it on your VPS with us not another provider? Feel free to log a ticket so we can investigate if there are any processes inside of your VPS causing that, the host node itself is getting about 150 MB/s and OVZ has little to no overhead so you should be seeing the same result.

    i like Urpad.In fact, my first VPS was with them. never faced any issue before but the reason why i cancelled is because i needed an IRC enabled VPS..

    @FTN_Kevin, ticket was opened and closed. started and ended with 55mb/s. Dylan knows. Better stop here. thanks.

  • syamansyaman Member

    Hrm so is a DD result of 55/MBsec considered unacceptably slow? I think I have a low end dedi with a score just slightly higher than that :p

    No. Its just than so many providers have upgraded that 55mb/s is not the norm anymore. Before, 3 digits io is so wow.... but now if you dont have 3 digits peple will complain....

    No complaints, @FTN_Kevin said it should be 3 digits, but I've got constantly 55, so just wondering where he gets those speed on same node. @jcaleb thanks again.

  • tommytommy Member

    btw 55 MB/s not enough for you?

    let say you got 200 MB/s do you ever use near that for read/write?

    one of my VPS only 30-40 MB/s but I'm really happy with that

    Where did you get this from? LAKid just expressed personal experience with certain node which differs from what was said by host representative and nothing more than that.

  • LAKidLAKid Member
    edited July 2012

    Yup, when host said 3 digits, but I am getting 55, so I asked, that's all.
