      RAM upgrades are possible upto 2 GB per storage VPS, ie, 1.5 GB extra ontop of this existing 512 MB is possible to total it to 2 GB.

      RAM is billed out at $1 per 512 MB per month. So you could make the VPS with 2 GB RAM for an additional $3/month :)

      Expensive. 2GB RAM, 2CPU, 500GB HDD for 3$ would be nice offer.

      @AlexBarakov has deal - 2GB Ram, 2CPU, 1TB for 5€ and amazing provider. Compared to this, pricing of Crowncloud is very expensive. That's why I said it Is expensive.

    • uptimeuptime Member

      agreed that does sound like a great deal.

      just saying, a few bucks more can be well worth it in some cases, CrownCloud being one of them.

      Currently anything less than or equal to $7/m/TB is consider good enough. While it might be expensive for you, please try not to direct users to another host in someone else's offer thread.

      You can't compare things just based on the storage, CrownCloud is providing services at Frankfurt and Los Angeles, not Bulgaria. There are more factors that will affect the pricing.

      EDIT: This is not the first time you are comparing different products, BuyVM is another example that provides fabulous services and you are saying that their product is "very expensive".

      The providers mentioned so far are all very good in my opinion but have to recognize that different offers are like comparing apples to oranges.

      For example, I'm recently seeing these write speeds (sequential writes, to LVM with LUKS encryption even) for CrownCloud 1 TB storage in Frankfurt:

      min 240 MB/s
      50% 375 MB/s
      max 521 MB/s
      

      And on a 128 GB storage deal with the excellent provider in Sofia:

      min 42 MB/s
      50% 51 MB/s
      max 62 MB/s
      

      which is fine for what I'm paying - and that provider will in fact tell you not to expect more speed for that particular offer.

      So I really like the option to pay a little more for much higher performance too - it's a great deal as far as I'm concerned.

      50% 51 MB/s
      max 62 MB/s
      

      I can completely confirm that statement as I'm seeing about the same stats on my VMs.

      @ visionboar: Crowncloud is one of the best providers here (i believe many other users can confirm my words and experiences with them), where be hosted at them means rock-solid stable, fast (both servers also networks) and headache-free services. And high quality haves own price, also i think they prices are accurate, not expansive. If their price politics is not in accordance with your savage ideas and wishes, nobody force you buy it, and you can run buy any ultracheap shit from scammer as for example Hiformance was - who does not have any problem offer you not realistic and no sustainable price for your short moment of feeling to be happy as nice and wonderful you did safe your money (usually what does not last longer as 1 week or shorter). I have VPS from both mentioned (Alpha and Crown) and i`m satisfied what them both provides at its price and parameters. But compare prices of Frankfurt location w premium connectivity service with Bulgaria location, and different storage performance (iops), and then scream here "he is cheaper" is pretty dumb. So pls be a little bit more objective..

      I ran one off a VPS in our LA2 setup,

      Please note,

      • We can enable CPU passthrough if needed for your VPS via a support ticket.
      • The Processor displayed below is incorrect, on the node is a Dual E5-2670 CPU. Mostly due to passthrough not being enabled.
      • Benchmarks may vary from node to node, depending on the usage on each node but if you face any issue with performance we will help. Just drop in a ticket and we'll have a look.

      Why you wouldn't just do stock QEMU CPU or passthrough is beyond me, unless they've got the software provisioned already specific for an E3. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      That's the kinda odd bit really, when building the VPS config, we pass the flag

              --cpu host \
      

      which should work perfectly fine, but it oddly picks up the CPU has a E3 range, when using host-passthrough we've had issues with FreeBSD not booting so we leave it with --cpu host for now and enable up passthrough as requested :)
