      yes and it is very fast as well
      here are the specs if you are interested
      https://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/global.semi.static/PM1725_NVMe_PCIe_SSD_Samsung_2016-1.pdf

      the issue is in xenserver in general, their io path is not optimized for single vm performance .
      I mean running 50 vms on the node we can saturate the disk easily but a single vm is always limited .

      So you can think of the numbers you see here as guaranteed numbers (it will never go less than that)

      by end of this year citrix will release new storage drivers based on their new code base SMAPIv3 that is supposed to fix this issue among others and will allow single vm to perform much better than this in terms of disk io

      on the other hand the reliability and the mature of the xen echo system is worth it for us to have io performance hit

      Is it Xen HVM or Xen PV?

    • That's a decent performance for 4-core offering at this price point. I've seen a lot worse. Anyone using dmcrypt on their VPS is going to be further limited by aes encryption performance. Any disk operation will quickly become CPU-bound at a much lower rate (dmcrypt is a bit faster than nench.sh 500MB/3s+ but not much). NVMe or regular SSD would not make much of a difference.

      Any plan to go for limited bw at higher port speed? How about traffic to your other storage VM?

    • Nvme vps should get a 2x portspeed bump at least .

      it is XEN PVHVM or what they call it PV over HVM

      basically you get the good from both worlds

      it is an HVM VM with PV drivers to increase network speed specifically

      soon citrix will finally release PVH on xenserver at that point we will be the kings of virtualization world :)

      I dont think so because we get windows license per physical server and due to high ram on these plans the number of vps per server is low which make the license cost high on the end user

      you can use up to 25% of the 4 cores (= 1 full core 100%) all the time
      you can use all the cores 100% for 2 hours burst with no issues
      if there is need of the cpus after 2 hours you will be limited to 25% for 2 hours and then the limiting will be lifted (automated)

      First let me note that I would normally not publish results and a review so quickly after just half a day of testing. And I will continue my testing until tomorrow evening (european time) if the provider allows it.
      However, this VPS is so stable that I'm not expecting any slips worth mentioning. Kudos, well done @Hani !

      Let me note something else: I made those tests under FreeBSD. Why? Because when someone noted that they achieved much better results under Linux I of course investigated. After all, I'm looking for solid results. In fact, I even extended my benchmark software to allow for more tunable parameters to allow for digging deeper into a system. What I found was that the reason for Linux' better disk results is simply aggressive caching, or in other words: Linux shows you impressive results but those results aren't stable; they break down under heavy load or when memory gets tight. As my priority is to find the real performance of a system, I'm not interested in nice numbers but in reliable and true real world numbers. Worded differently it seems that Linux answers the question "What's the best you can expect from your disks?" which I'm not interested in, so I stuck with FreeBSD because what some consider a disadvantage actually is an advantage for my testing/benchmarking (but likely not for a newbie with a LAMP stack and light load).

      CPU and memory

      A Xeon 26xx is a decent processor for a server, even older versions (in this case v.2), 2.6 GHz (3.4 GHz turbo) isn't screaming fast but really decent and damn good enough for most users and anyway cache is more important than clock rate for real world performance and the 26xx are quite well equipped. 20 MB L3 cache are good enough to keep the L1 and L2 cache lines well filled.
      As for the memory it's what they say it is (6 GB) and it's DDR3 which is slower than current DDR4 but one must see the whole line from memory to the L1 caches and the 26xx performs nicely. I've seen quite some more current processors who don't do much better overall. Also very positive: Stability. Look at the "span" value! Even in single core mode it's around just 10. Very nice.

      Disks

      I'll keep that one short and dry. The performance isn't great (for an NVMe). One would expect considerably better results from NVMe disks. In the tested system the performance is more like what one would expect from a nice SSD. So, if you want a VPS with real NVMe performance this one is not for you.

      Network

      What I like most is the stability. I've rarely seen such a stable network in the low end segment. Yes, there are some outliers, e.g. Brazil, but a network that offers about the same connectivity and performance to San Jose at the west coast as to Milano, Italy is remarkable - and most of that with sturdy consistence. Very nice!
      I don't know whether ServaRica do have more serious offers for businesses but if I happened to need my (presumably business) web site very well reachable and quite fast at that for customers in both the USA and Europe then ServaRica would be one place to look for that. I'm impressed.
      The downside is that locations outside of the "big business" grid like Sao Paolo, BR or Chennai, IN show really poor results.

      Other/General

      The IP of the VPS I tested is actually in the same /24 as the test IP provided above by ServaRica. I noted that positively; no tricking, just an IP from the really used IP range. Nice.
      As for Xen, I don't care. Xen is OK and the performance is about the same as KVM. Each one has its (mostly minor) advantages and disadvantages but I never had problems with Xen.

      Finally, the price. 7$ for 4 (decent!) vCores, 6 GB memory, and an 80 GB "fast SSD like" disk, along with very nice connectivity is a very attractive deal. One caveat that I want to mention is that the VPS seems to be limited at 100 Mb/s. For most users that shouldn't be a problem at all but if you really need massive bandwidth, then this VPS might not be for you. I personally like it very much though as I know that about 98% of VPSs hardly ever come even close to 100 Mb/s; in fact, I had dedis that were limited at 100 Mb/s and I had no problems with that.

      TL;DR A really sweet deal, especially when you need to be very well - and fast - reachable from both the whole USA and Europe (even Moscow and Bucarest show nice results) and with, let's say, a very nice SSD. Another big plus: That VPS is stable and not the oversold crap one often encounters. Recommended.

      Is it possible to move my ssd vps(same price) to nvme offer + extra directadmin license?

      sure just open a ticket although it will take a bit longer to move and upgrade due to number of orders we are getting

    • Able to upgrade resources?

      100mbit port to 1gbit port metered?

      you can place an order and not pay for it
      then open a ticket to ask to enable affiliate

      we will delete the order after that

      yes i will explain down

      100mbit port to 1gbit port metered?

      it will be free to upgrade to 1gbps with a limit we are working out the details and updating our automation and control panel to support that

      for unlimited 1gbps we dont offer it yet

      additional RAM?
      additional CPU?
      additional STORAGE?

      for ram , cpu and storage we allow you to multiply the resources of the vm
      so for 14$ you get double the resources in one vm and so on
      for now we dont support individual resource upgrade

      Windows 2019 Server?

      you can custom install it from iso if you want
      I will check if we can make the template for it ready

      I tried to answer last 2 questions yesterday but LET was so slow I couldnt

      Hi everyone

      Just wanted to let you know that we have been working hard to overcome the disk speed issues to get the real potential of NVMe

      Well we got close

      The disk performance improved up to 2X to 3X times compared to the time of the release of this plan

      Although the perfomance is still less than what the NVMe that we use can provide but this is comparable or better to other NVMe offers in the market

      we will plan to move all users who already ordered with zero downtime to new servers where we fixed the issue and any new order will be on new servers (will fix the old servers as well)

      if @jsg or @Falzo want to test will provide test vps

      if you want me to run any test let me know what the test and i will run it

      I'm close to do my write up but I'm willing to do another round of tests.
      If you reopen my access and if you finally solve that ugly "payment reminder" issue. As is well known and agreed upon, I do not charge anything for my tests nor do I pay for access to the test server.
      Unfortunately I received another reminder after your support promised to solve/cancel that mistake.

      Just signed up and paid for one month of service to test as a possible replacement for another VPS I have. I can confirm that I/O speed is higher that the above results, but I seeing very poor network speeds. See below for my results.

      A few questions:

      1) Can we request the PTR record for these VPSes be updated? This is a must for my use case.
      2) How do you go about requesting the doubling of the resources for the VPS and does the monthly cost just double?
      3) Are the above network results normal? If not, what do we need to do to fix it?
      4) If the VPS passes my tests, can I request to be moved to a yearly billing cycle?

      yes sure just open a ticket and it will be done

      2) How do you go about requesting the doubling of the resources for the VPS and does the monthly cost just double?

      yes monthly cost double currently you can do it by ticket but if there is enough interst we can add it as plan to make everyone life easier

      3) Are the above network results normal? If not, what do we need to do to fix it?

      not normal at all there was a networking issue it was just fixed now so the numbers should go back to normal

      4) If the VPS passes my tests, can I request to be moved to a yearly billing cycle?

      yes sure any time
