https://stockservers.com/cart.php?a=add&pid=45&promocode=4GPVJY1STD


Features

  • noVNC from client area
  • Comes with OS of your deciding but OS can be changed in client are
  • Mount own ISO from client area(open support ticket if ISO not there)
  • IP given via DHCP so no need to manually configure
  • VPS statistics inside client area
  • Basic DDoS Protection

All servers are provisioned manually but once provisioned, Please enter on order form if you would like an OS pre installed or just an ISO attached,

We have very minimal amount of stock of these as its spare space on several servers, Most servers are i7 or E5 CPU, the cores are not dedicated and are fair share so abuse will not be tolerated, No miners, No Tor basically if we get a abuse report or DMCA you will need to get it sorted or we will have to terminate but we do give chance before we terminate.

Any questions just ask and I will give a 24 hour test to select people who want to benchmark but it will have only a shared IP and can only used via noVNC.

    Decided to grab one of these and see if I could use it for a project idling.
    Had a nice chat with Aaran, who seemed very open towards feedback (gave him some in regards to the control panel).

    Here's a benchmark for anyone interested:

    @Decicus Thanks for the feedback, And also thanks for pointing out the error in the client area which i have now got sorted ;)

    Im always open about how we do things and how we have servers setup, I hope this works as you hope it would :)

    Always here to help if anything should go wrong.

    Yes of course, shoot me a dm but I won't be able to provision till tomorrow now as I would personally have to do it instead of support.

    It all depends on the server, Re run ZFS on all servers we have so at a minimum its going to be servers with 2x3TB HDD in a raid1 but we have a lot of servers with 4x2TB or 4x6TB in which case we do Raid-10 but again we use ZFS not LVM

    we use ZFS

    I'm fine with a little disk over-commit on ZFS.
    I just realized I had GiB and GB mixed up.

  • OujiOuji Member

    Just ran a benchmark. Looking good so far. This offer is not unmissable, but very very good as the bandwidth and disk space are unparelled at this price range.

    Also the setup time was really good. Just had to setup the OS myself, something I'm not used to (I guess you can say I'm spoiled). But it was a seamless experience using the noVNC console.

    Unfortunately not at this time, Proxmox is a pain for templates but I am working on a solution for that. But your IP is given via DHCP so installing via iso we found was the best option plus you have more control over your install

    Thanked by 2cybertech vimalware
  • BopieBopie Member, Provider

    @Ouji Thats actually the best benchmark so far iv seen ;), Normally i will setup the OS for people but that adds time for the provisioning so i do give the option to install your self :)

    I'm hoping to find a way to auto provision from templates for these as i wasn't expecting this offer gather so much attention, So far really my options are 1) pay someone to make me templates to work along side my provisioning module 2) use Virtualizor over the top of Proxmox to control provisioning ...

    I will see how all goes

    Given how fast you setup the VM, I didn't care to install it myself. Ubuntu doesn't have a lot of stuff to customize in the install, so it's quite fast do it.

    With that transfer and storage size, you had a hint that it'd gather some attention as they're very good.
    Templates would be a very welcome feature, but for me, all I need is uptime and stability. Also the speeds are very good.

  • BopieBopie Member, Provider

    @Ouji this is why we use ZFS along side proxmox, I'm going to test tomorrow how well vortualizor sits along side the way we have our servers setup.

    FYI the server your on is only raid 1 so I'm shocked at the bench speeds.

    Yes im aware of that, I don't personally setup the nodes I have a guy for that ;) and it still amazes me to this day just how he gets things to run how he does but im glad everyone is happy so far, Im waiting on more IPs from hetzner so some orders are delayed until they get assigned to me.

  • BopieBopie Member, Provider

    Important

    I cant edit my post so i will post it here, This package does support windows when ordered at the non discounted price, If you use the discount then we do not offer windows, This is because it would be unsustainable for us to offer such a VPS with windows at that price. The thread does state "Linux" and im sorry if i didn't make this clear enough.

  • Yes very happy, CPU juice aplenty. Seems to have low I/O latency. Personally a fan of ZFS too

    I expect people to be scepticle that remember that company, however what happened after the sale made me sad aswell as I built that from the ground up and it was my baby... Things are different with this company, I do not intend on going anywhere but I understand why you feel how you do as I would in the same situation.

    I'd rather not discuss in detail on here though as I'm not affiliated with piohost anymore and haven't been for some time now.

    Also this is KVM right? so how are these cores shared? (I'm pretty new so don't know much about KVM and openvz ect.)

    Also torrenting is allowed as long as you don't receive any dcma right?

    Cores are not dedicated they are shared and fair share, Basically you cant max them out 24/7, the moment we would consider warning is when you impact other users performance.

    Torrenting is ok for personal none copyright materiel however we do not monitor your server so you are correct as long as we dont get dmca then there is no reason for us to bother you.

    as for deliver i was just in middle of an email to everyone who has ordered as we have a massive backlog now. We did not expect this many users to be interested in this offer so did not prepare as we should have and its own fault, if any one is interested in a refund then we well certainly do that for them.

    It's a pretty good offer. Thanks a lot. Understood, I don't plan on using a lot of resource, I don't know if I can but I was thinking about using Plex to direct play(without transcoding) my media, will that be considered as abuse? and also I think you missed to answer about fuse mount, I need it to mount gdrive.

    Oh yes sorry i did, Have got a massive workload to get through so im sorry for that, Fuse should be fine as you will have your own kernel etc so i see no reason as to why not.

    As for plex as long as you dont use more then 50% of your CPU power for longer then 15minutes then your ok but we would only enforce this if we notice a performance impact on the server form a single user, thats when we would then consider if said user is really abusing the shared cores or not. It might be worth just trying to start and see what happens and if its to much then obviously just monitor it.

    @sritub do note that some audio codecs also need transcoding so it will use up CPU even when you disable transcode (deoends on the audio codec and player). Something like 3-4 simultaneous streams should be fine on that config though

    @Bopie You did set a limit on number of orders possible based on stock right? Because it'll feel really bad if someone was able to place an order but don't get the deal and have to take refund.

    @sritub I did indeed set a number based on stock, However as mentioned i placed the order for IPs before i posted and they never got delivered before so now i have to wait till monday morning, Im also now playing with another control panel instead of proxmox which will offer the possibility for automation, If it works out i will activate a few orders.

  • @Bopie - do you support CPU pass through for this (esp. the AES flag)? Also, is IPv6 available?

  • relentless collector of highest clocked, highest performing KVM/NVMe/Gbit VPSes at the most competitive rates. just to hard idle them. zero knowledge on coding/programming; a mere hobbyist.

    ***Update

    Provisioning has started again and re have restocked the VPS, If you couldn't order before you can now and we estimate delivery in 12 hours

    How did you run the benchmark without AES?

    My results are 4200 single core and 6700 multi core, how did you get 12000 for multi core?
