Kazila 512 MB Xen PV VPS Review
I was looking for USA based VPS with great connectivity to Europe. At that time LEA posted new Kazila's offer. After seeing Francisco's I/O test I decided to give it a try. They don't offer instant setup, so I waited 6 hours to get VPS setup. The same day I opened a support ticket which was answered just 3 minutes later, the other one was opened on Christmas eve and was answered in 38 minutes. Impressive.

There wasn't any reboot or downtime yet, however I have reloaded OS once.

With Debian 5 + Nginx + MySQL + PHP installed and hosting a few websites current memory consumption is around 50 MB.

Kazila claims to be utilizing 15k SAS drives. Awesome.

It looks like node has raid controller with cache too.

100 Mbps port can be easily maxed out. All my traffic goes trough Level3, which peers with my ISP, so latency is really low.

Geekbench score is pretty high, although VPS has only one core of E5620.
I'd definitely recommend them to any person looking for powerful and reliable VPS with great support. Merry Christmas and a happy new year to everyone.
