500GB storage + 512MB RAM for 20$!

500GB storage + 512MB RAM for 20$!

edited September 2012 in Providers

1 vCPU 512MB RAM 500GB HDD (1TB +10$) Linux OS (Windows +10$) 4TB Traffic @ 100Mbit 1 IPv4 (IPv6? no idea) Piscataway, NJ (Choopa DC)

Order: https://www.constant.com/order/order.php?PLANID=610&cpu=617&ram=827&hard_drive=822&bandwidth=611

Sounds unbelieveable... any expiriences? Seems to be Xen. HDD might be a single, dedicated, disk and no RAID.

  • If this was in the EU, I would buy a few of these right now..

    I work for Nodisto.

  • If it is reliable provider, I'd buy a few of these, no matter where they are located. But it sounds unreasonable, 500gb for 20$. Maybe over-used old single drives.. But if it is in raid array, I really find it concerning.

    Main reason I need EU is so I can encode my videos and stream them to me without any risk of lag (USA tends to be slightly problematic)

    Yeah, even if I/O was bad - 500GB for $20 is perfect for my use.

  • Considering choopa had a 8Tb dedicated server deal for about $60 a month and about $100 setup, I would say it sounds believable to me.

    Choopa has great EU BW, i have one of their 8TB specials and do 12MB/s since today night to get my backups from them to my home PC. So i guess this won't be an issue.

  • I think it's a single dedicated drive too. Is this an established provider?

    Hmm.. I'll give it a think, would sure as hell help if I could upgrade to a 1gbit so I can be a little more flexible with my setup (I could put a stream server + torrent server on it with 100mbit, but with 1gbit I could just put a torrent server on it and them use SSHFS to remotely hook it up to my stream server in the NL. - sshfs + torrenting wont work with 100mbit though)

  • @fan said: I think it's a single dedicated drive too. Is this an established provider?

    They are owned by Choopa, so yea.

  • Now this is what i like :) Even if io is bad, it will not matter as the network is slow enough and i think these will be mostly for backup, anyway. M

    Who's General Failure, and why is he reading my drive A: ?

  • How about the Hostslim previous offer? :D

    You get a dedi, more RAM and more storage with Kimsufi :)

  • For the guys on the West Coast, we picked up a storage node from BuyVM for all misc data this week: 512mb / 500GB storage / 15.00 per month

  • Not seeing what's the big deal over a Kimsufi.

  • I swear this was going to be EDIS and I was going to explode. :X

  • @rm_ look at the prices; they're crazy for what you're getting (especially HDD space with the 2G however it's usually a crappy old/slow drive good enough for backups). However I now swear never to go near OVH again.

  • I live right next to piscataway. I'm really close to choopa, nac.net, atlanticmetro and all the dc's in NYC. seems that I made a good choice :)

    Don't explain me what Kimsufi is, I know them and already have one, thanks. I was asking why people think "500GB storage + 512MB RAM for 20$!" in this thread is such a big deal to even put an exclamation mark there; that I don't see any advantages this offer has over a Kimsufi 2G.

    Why would you buy this and not a kimsufi with 2GB ram and 1TB storage?

    Let's see - ECC RAM? Besides everybody and his mother already has a kimsufi. Diversity is a good thing.

    • Network, Location
    • Hardware independency
    • Easy up- and downgradeable

    La parole nous a été donnée pour déguiser notre pensée.

  • Still, with a dedicated server you're not sharing anything, which is why I stepped away from VPS a couple of months a go.

    Location is the only really valid point I see, the others are valid as well but are just not very great selling points.
