FlowVPS KVM 4GB

The search for low priced 2 vCPU SSD kvm in Asia region has been an arduous one.

After giving up on getting a lower priced VPS in Japan, expanded search within Asia with good speeds to JP.

Saw this very competitive price AUD 9.32 KVM NVMe with 2 CPU , gave it a shot. First time going for E3 Xeon and not very confident on computing power.

Initial benches were very ok, satisfactory. Sometimes so-so. decided to load test site, but had accessibility issues to JP. Thinking that it was my own problem, decided to forget about this vps but raised a low support ticket anyway.

tech support replied very quickly and took ownership of the case. Within a few hours things were tweaked and wow, performance was improved and much more consistent since.

Ping to JP improved a lot along with speeds too. Test site loads consistently well.

Now monitoring uptime. Preparing to move production over. Update again in a few months.

    I appreciate the order, but lets not shit in a review for @trewq's company :) He's in AUS, you can't compare costs in each market.

    @trewq nice offers boss.

    EDIT - realized this isn't an offer thread after the fact, fixed some of my wording.
