SSDVPS - First Experience

I thought I would purchase on of these
http://lowendbox.com/blog/ssd-vps-7-2gb-ram-40gb-ssd-openvz-in-los-angeles/

1) All emails sent from their systems are sent as [email protected] . After not receiving the activation emails I discovered our mail systems rejected all their emails as their sender address is not fully-qualified but rather "[email protected]"

2) Loaded up Centos 6.4 and performance was very good, diskio at approx 280MB/s. After installing cPanel I found that cPanel quotas not working. After doing the usual checks I submitted a ticket to ask if secondond level quotas are enabled on the VPS, and I get the response below.

_Hi,

I recommend http://www.platinumservermanagement.com/ as our services are self managed._

When I queried the response, it is evident that they don't know what I am talking about Now

Does anyone else know about ssdVPS?, as right now I have some concerns about their technical capability.

    If they can't figure out how to enable second level quotas...CANCEL.

    edit: this provider is the one who when they were asked why their WHOIS info has the address of their data center instead of their business address responded:

    I would rather leave my personal home address off my whois and use the data center’s address instead.

    Run...
    Cancel...
    Check the offers section here for one of the many hosts who know what they're doing....

    On a "pure" SSD node?

  • Well it looks like they came good, enabled quotas and closed ticket.

    Just doing a dd, today its approx 230MB/s

    dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync
    16384+0 records in
    16384+0 records out

    My SATA setup's in RAID10 are pushing more than that > 350MB/s

    SSDVPS's test results when they posted their LEB offer last month were in the 650-680 MB/s range. The test results people have posted have been dropping steadily to the 200-280MB/s range as their node(s) fills up.

    PureSSD comes in many flavors. :P

    Slow Flavor: This result is from my VPS at a Spanish provider with "pure SSD" nodes...they're running OpenVZ inside of KVM

    dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync

    16384+0 records in
    16384+0 records out
    1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 17.556 s, 61.2 MB/s

    Fast Flavor: this is my dedicated server with SSD drives at Seflow

    dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync

    16384+0 records in
    16384+0 records out
    1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 1.4771 s, 727 MB/s

    .

    Reece said My SATA setup's in RAID10 are pushing more than that > 350MB/s

    The dd results from one of my VPS's on a RAID SATA (w/SSD cache) node at Iniz NL are 9x faster than my "pure SSD" VPS in Spain

    dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync

    16384+0 records in
    16384+0 records out
    1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 2.27895 s, 471 MB/s

    TL;DR: buying a "pure SSD" plan doesn't always guarantee blazing speed.

    This is why I hate that terminology...
