    Which plan is it? The next one is of $10 and it has 2 GB RAM. https://www.vultr.com/products/cloud-compute/

    It's Los Angeles.

  • My overall experience has been good. Their support is fast and there is rarely any downtime. If there is any, it doesn't last for more than 2-3 minutes.

    here's a geekbench for a $3.50/m 512 MB ram instance I've been holding onto in San Jose https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/14631814

    The $3.50/m deals seem to be out of stock everywhere except for their "New York" location - which is actually in New Jersey - and that also seems to have some of the $2.50/m IPv6-only deals in stock at the moment :)

    note the modestly clocked single-core performance on this little 512 MB instance is indeed delivering superior potassium.

    Processor Information                                                           
      Name                          Intel Core Processor (Broadwell, IBRS)          
      Topology                      1 Processor, 1 Core                             
      Identifier                    GenuineIntel Family 6 Model 61 Stepping 2       
      Base Frequency                2.39 GHz                                        
      L1 Instruction Cache          32.0 KB                                         
      L1 Data Cache                 32.0 KB                                         
      L2 Cache                      4.00 MB                                         
      L3 Cache                      16.0 MB                
    

    Compare the single-core performance with for example a higher-clocked "compute optimized" instance at Lunanode (which is also very nice - but is a much different beast, and for $40 per month - or, let's just maybe call it $0.05556 per hour) https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/14377647

    And (it's not explicitly displayed in the geekbench) might also note the SSD performance is consistently decent (considering I'm using full-disk encryption via LVM on LUKS)

  • Stop using the old cloud compute plans and give the high frequency a twirl

    grape

  • Fun fact: I made a Vultr server with one of the Minecraft templates, and I kept getting disconnected after running in a straight line for like 30 seconds. I realize it's a $5 instance, but the CPU was getting throttled massively. Vultr advertises their ability to run Minecraft, but I find it hard to believe anyone can have a good experience considering that it couldn't handle one player running in a line for a few seconds.

    Worth the try. Vultr strength is their 10GB network connectivity, even with the $5 plan.

    Let try High Frequency Compute Instance.
