Contabo Review - VPS M SSD

  • @edfox thanks for the links, I am glad I will be using a Contabo box soon. Sorry for the off-topic, but those stats definitely makes me conclude that the SSD in my Netcup review is not a real one

  • edfoxedfox Member

    Also if anybody wants me to take any tests i have an idling contabo VPS M box until 17 May or so

    Thanked by 1bdwebservices
  • I had a VPS-M (4Gb RAM) at Contabo (February 2013 - August 2016). I'd say the service was quite good. I left that hosting since I just didn't need that exact VPS any more. But today, I think, I'd keep that VPS, given the same situation.

    Apart from several short-term packet loss conditions, everything was quite smooth and nice. I used support by email - quite quick and useful.

    Yes, I have the same experience so far. I asked to change the order after a few hours and it was smooth and friendly.

    Did you make this one https://serverscope.io/trials/m0x0 ? Otherwise you could try updating it.

    Last time I used Contabo the VPS worked great but the packet loss was so bad at times that I couldn’t use SSH. I had to cancel it.

    Been considering picking one of those VPSes up again for a few a few weeks now. Would make for a good archiving box.

    When did you use Contabo the last time?I currently got one of their cheaper SSD-based offerings running a few months and thus far I've not had any issues with the network.

    Just checked my e-mail and can only find Contabo e-mails from 2015. I either don’t have the newer e-mails anymore OR time went by a lot faster than it felt like! Haha.

    Unfortunately not, with regard to VPS we can only provide the offers displayed on our website. It is not possible to further customize the hardware specs of our VPS at the moment. Should this ever become an option in the future, we will of course inform you via our website/blog/social media.

  • contabo is the biggest scammer. when you buy a server after a few days they send you a spam email. mostly we not check spam/junk box emails. after 2 days they close the server and ask for 30 euro for handling abuse report. this is not fair. don't buy a server from contabo.

    @Naxid said:

    Contacted their support. You are allowed to fully use them and ofc also burst. If you are continuously running at 100% you may encounter performance issues as cores are still ( virtual)shared.

    I too contacted the support and got a different reply.

    My question:

    2) In the 100% SSD VPS series, can I use 100% power of the cpu cores continuously? If not, what are the restrictions?

    Reply I got:

    Regarding your second question we have to tell you that a VPS is not intended to be used at 100% CPU usage all the time. This is because it is a shared hosting. If you need the full performance all the time you have to go with one of our Dedicated Server:

    What's wrong with that though? Yes, you can use and boost your cores the way you like it but they are kindly informing you that a VPS is still a shared environment so if everyone goes 100% 24/7 you may experience a different performance than if you rented a Dedicated Server. Hence the recommendation to get a dedi if you need to rely on 24/7 100% performance. With a VPS, noisy neighbours can still ruin the fun for you.

    What's wrong with that? Also it's 100% SSD and not 100% resource. Means servers will have SSD and not hybrid with HDD cache.

    And they are right that you should buy a dedicated server instead if you want 100% CPU resources all time

    Why though? The part you quoted says exactly what is the case. Yes, you are allowed to use the cores the way you want but you are advised that performance may decrease in a shared environment as opposed to a Dedicated Server if everyone was to max out their cores 24/7.

    Allowed is what is written on the contract you sign. Not intended is the common sense applied when you buy any service in a shared environment.

    Show me please.

    On the order page they say it is KVM based so, naturally (as far as virtualization allows) the cores are yours. Also after contacting support (the part from me you quoted) they said you are allowed to make use of your cores any way you want. They just reminded you of the classic "Don't be a dick"-rule that common sense applies in any shared environment. Regardless, it is what it is. Either take it or leave it.
