    Is the single IPV6(solusVM says) assigned from its own /64 subnet?

    Can a a handful more be manually assigned(in the future) if the subnet is reserved?

    It's from an own /64. You can assign more from there.

    Hey Alex! Couple Q's for you --

    1. What CPUs do your UK KVM hosts have? And is KVM pass-through possible?
    2. I noticed your Terms of Service explicitly forbid Minecraft and TeamSpeak servers. Was the TS addition recent? I used to have a TS server running previously on a NY OVZ service and don't recall this being a part of your ToS when I first signed up. Are other types of game servers also disallowed?
    3. (Only applies if game servers are permitted) I couldn't find any specific details, but what is your AUP policy on KVMs? Would be hosting a couple game servers, which may burst to a high CPU clock periodically for short durations (< 1 hr) and want to make sure that's acceptable.

    Hello Mason!

    Hope you're well! Let me answer your questions now:
    1. KVM nodes use either E3v5/E3v5 or Dual E5-2650v1/v2. E3s in London, E5s in Bulgaria. Do note that the CPUs in London might change to E5s or Scalable in the near future, due the RAM limitations of E3s. CPU pass-through is not an issue, however should be requested via a ticket, as it's not the default setting.
    2. As a general rule - we try to avoid gameservers and TS, due to them causing some DDoS issues and while most of our locations have proper filtering in place, we do not want DDoS magnets on our network. TS and MC for friends and family is perfectly fine. Same goes for users, such are yourself, who I know are not problematic. TBH - I just don't want to deal (or make my team deal) with a bunch of butthurt kids, attracting tons of DDoS - so we have this in our TOS. We do not go through VMs and do not monitor the content, so we really don't know who is running what - as long as it's not causing problems.
    3. As long as the bursts are not very long, all should be fine. You have to note that none of these plans come with dedicated CPU, so hogging it up 24/7 will lead to a warning.

    Hope this is good enough for you!

    Around 170EUR for the bandwidth + the server costs - this is if you plan on using the full 100TB. We're always willing to do custom quotes, so feel free to PM me with more details and I will quote you accordingly. We would be able to do pure Cogent for cheaper.

    @vimalware - thank you for the benchmarks - we rarely get reviews up here :(

    Let's talk. I am awaiting some 6TB drives, along with 4TB drives and got plenty of stock on 3TB drives. Got some 14x LFF chassis available as well. ;)

    Just need a bit of ram, a reasonable CPU and a disk. 4TB might do, 6TB would be better.

    Currently - no. Any reason why you would need pure Cogent for storage VPS?

    Exactly. That sweet level3 and gtt peering is letting me wget from as far away as LAX at 24-25MB/s.

    Not a cogent route seen anywhere after testing against 10 of my favorite vps.

    OpenVZ. Today, not necessarily a bad thing. But the clock is ticking. What will all these OpenVZ providers do when it goes EOL next year?

    Will shoot you up a test IP from our Volume network next week, to do your tests. I am curious on what difference you will see.

    Awesome. I'm glad at least one provider is being proactive about this.

    Well, I am probably more concerned about it than my customers. That being said - a couple of other big providers over here confirmed they are testing as well. We'll most likely see first offers on OVZ7 in Q1 2019. Probably won't be from us, but still :)

    This is the part that worries me. Lots of customers don't understand. And lots of LE providers don't care (or also don't understand). Which means lots of potentially exploitable systems down the road....
