as there were some changes to the offers from providers I tend to use (hetzner vs. netcup ;-)) and all the NVMe related discussions lately, I had another look around the german market to see what providers are making steps towards NVMe...

I stumbled across the offers of https://www.first-root.com/ - who are in the german market for quite some time now (I think from 2011 or so) but never made it to my list of providers that are of interest to me. can't remember why that is, most likely because not really low end and quite expensive for what I usually look out...

yet if one does believe that NVMe could be a game changer, offers with large disk of that kind are still not easy to find - and that is something First Root offers. while investigating I came in contact with their CEO @FR_Michael who is now lurking around here and interestingly enough we found that we played quite some rounds of CS together back in the days ^^
he offered me a test drive of their NVMe products which I took ofc, because always love to have something new to play with. so without further ado, benchmarks...

geekbench: https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/7090234

someone lately mentioned VPS reviews doing a php compilation, so I did that too - it took 3m49.251s.

they are hosting out of KPN DC in Dusseldorf using them as part of their upstream but have their own equipment and AS (as41108), serverbench (incoming wget network speeds):

so they easily beat hetzner IO wise with 42k vs. 30k on the 4k blocksize and 11.6k vs 5.6k with 64k blocksize (50% readwrite mix) - I have been told the node is filled about 75% but it is dedicated ressources in this price category anyway.

I am not using other suspects like DO or Ramnode, so can't tell about the numbers there, but I'd say NVMe clearly makes a point here ;-)

other facts regarding First Root: CPU is passthrough, so VME/VMX is available as is AES-NI. mining related stuff is forbidden by their TOS (for sole benchmarking purposes: xmrig achieved around 140H/s out of those two 4770T cores :-P)

I set up proxmox on that box and everything worked fine as nested virt (LXC/KVM), no issues - not many providers offer that.
also a single addon IP is 1€ (without VAT), VLAN is available for free in combination with one or more subnets.

their control panel is nice and clean and also available in english language (one might need to re-login). VNC is available, support seems helpful if you need additional images (I am fine with debian, thx). afaik byol windows is no problem, though I did not see images for installing that ;-)

at least with their Ultra packages they do include a backup which is taken on the fly (without downtime) and not counted towards the disk space but placed on extra infrastructure, very nice feature!

for what it's worth, you might to watch out for the usual german habits like contract terms and 1 month cancellation period (cancellation can be done easily from within the control panel)

things are running very smoothly now for more than 2 weeks, so overall for a first impression a very interesting product lineup.
most likely not for cheapskates, as it's competing in the range of bigger VMs like from ramnode, buyvm, and maybe DO, vultr, hetzner - even though no hourly cloud stuff yet.

as they also have some smaller product ranges starting from around <3€ (incl. german VAT, which they deduct for international customers), maybe @FR_Michael can be convinced to release some offers/special discount for the LET crowd within our pricing range ;-)

edit: changed link from first-root.de to first-root.com to directly go to their international pages ;-)

    Seriously?... That's like measuring bandwidth not by speed test, but by running 10 pings to google.

    Run instead (and remember forever):

    ioping -R /

  • I really wouldn't have guessed that a 40€/mo plan would do better than a 5€/mo plan :P

    Thanks for the review, overall it looks quite good.

    tbh I just add that to the things I do for comparison because it has been done a lot. I might better omit it completly... as I am looking more on fio stats anyway.

    but here is what you asked:

    # ioping -R /

    thanks for the hint, I'll try to remember ;-)

    while I agree with that, I am pretty sure there are a lot of providers with 40€/m offers that won't even come close to hetzner ;-)

    Currently we are running promos on our OVZ and KVM Light and Start. NVME Promotions will be available in the near future but currently we are deploying new nodes just for regular orders and upgrading customers.

    Just some more things:

    • all our vps can be ordered without auto renewal contracts. If you need that you just need to manually renew the contract before the termination date is reached. If you don't do that your VPS will be suspended and shortly afterwards deleted including all backups.
    • We don't allow spam. We hate spammers and we really don't accept that. In case your order is somehow ... unusual... we might stop your vps from using smtp. This can be lifted by our support after verification.
    • we are not ignoring DMCA but we give every customer the change to handle dmca requests and we don't suspend/delete vps just because of an incoming dmca notice.

    If you have further questions just leave a post :).
