    Quantum Core

    dahartigandahartigan Member, Host Rep

    Nearly 2 months ago I came across a deal from @QuantumCore for a VPS in Sydney for $5 AUD per month (that's about tree fiddy in USD) - https://quantumcore.com.au/linux-vps

    I'm going to paste this bench.sh before I continue.

    That's not bad at all for $5 AUD per month, in Sydney. The network is fast my man. Not OVH. I don't actually know for sure, but it's premium AF.

    Check out that Asia speed!

    Looking glass: https://lg.quantumcore.com.au/

    I've been using this as a remote desktop (it's 25ms away, performance is awesome with x2go) and I'm able to stream video from sites I wouldn't normally be able to on a VPS. (I'm not elaborating on that, you know exactly what I mean). For a single core, it's quite beastly. Definitely, absolutely, bet my left nut on it, it's NOT oversold.

    Haven't needed support, no comment there. General chit chat with the owner has been friendly, and the vibe I get is he's focused on quality. Quick to respond during human waking hours.

    There's a $50 free credits if you put $5 in. I believe the $50 credit lasts for 60 days. It'll cost you fuck all to try it out. - https://quantumcore.com.au/freecredit

    I wanted to show @QuantumCore some love as they haven't got as much attention as I believe they deserve.

    @poisson we have exothermic potassium here. Would be interested how this ranks, if you pay $5 for effectively 6 months (if you pay half yearly before 60 days), plus the change..

    And finally, official certification:

    Tl;dr grab your $5 AUD and get some Australian potassium of the finest quality outside of Melbourne :-)

    • I also enjoyed this offer and shared it with a few friends, but most people do n’t know, the real offer is always short-lived

    • dahartigandahartigan Member, Host Rep

      This, the @SmartHost flash sale and the most recent @seriesn flash sale have combined to be the 3 best purchases in recent times for me.

      Gotta say, with the $50 credit (especially if you got the first round with no expiration) and my $5 that's 11 months for $5. That makes this the steal of the year for me, looking at it that way.

    • Have been using the $5AUD @QuantumCore VPS since May this year, as a fallback for a @HostDoc one. As you said @dahartigan it's a little known gem and that's without me getting the benefit of that big chunk of freebie credit.
      Mostly, it's completely stable (and idle) though I did use it in earnest whilst reconfiguring the HosDoc one. I pushed a CWP user account between them, no bother.
      It doesn't suffer from the I/O problems during host system backups either. ;-)

      Thanked by 1dahartigan

      Support open-source, go on, you know you want to.

    • Actually with the credit this is a winner for sure. Can the 50 dollar credit pay for 10 months of service in advance before the 60 day expiry?

      I understand there may be a 50% off first invoice coupon that one could possibly use to purchase a year for $30 of credit before the 60 days expires.... waiting to hear back from @QuantumCore to see if this is a legal move or an oopsie that needs to be fixed..

      I personally plan to renew at $5/mo when the credits run out, put it that way ;) As you mentioned, it doesn't seem to suffer what ails another provider..

      Unfortunately not, it's SAU which routes through a few providers like Superloop and Equinix but Equinix unfortunately mainly uses Vocus which is bad (HE is used a lot). Domestically it'll be a good network through.

      My ISP is Exetel and I've got an amazing connection domestically to it. Never noticed any poor routing, now you mention it I'll see if i can find a weakness.. but in my normal usage it's been flawless. Same deal with binarylane too I believe..

      That'll be because Exetel has recently switched to Superloop & Telstra transit so you will have been using Superloop the entire way to your server most likely. BinaryLane too use Superloop, their network is technically better than Quantum as they use SL for both domestic and international.

      Nice, hope you're going single homed Superloop (with someone like HE as backup) - at this rate there's not a single network in AU that beats the quality of Superloop in both international and domestic.

      Only? I find that to be quite fast, and that's around what I get from binarylane. I'm not sure if it should be higher or not, but it certainly feels fast when using it (and I'm using it as a remote desktop which would bug me even more if it were slow, it'd be noticeable opening firefox etc)

      My own cheap SSD laptop doesn't even give me these speeds and it feels very snappy already. Good enough.

      seems like a good provider, and I wanted to try, unfortunately during that bonus offering fiasco they became a victim of their own success, and the actual potential customers weren't able to try, but some crazy mob from a Chinese forum (or that's how I remember it)

      @QuantumCore probably you should consider offering something in the future

      just my 2 AUD cents

      Hey TGL,

      Sorry I'm not quite sure what you mean? What would you like to see us offer?

      As for benchmarks, you really need to compare apples with apples. Run the same benchmark test on the same operating system with the exact same specs. :)

      @Gravely my Brisbane one was a lot less (I actually use this QC to replace my BL. Crazy right?) Perhaps I'll try a Sydney BL and see if there's a difference. I personally can't feel a difference between 400mb and 2000mb, if it's sub-100 it feels slow to me. Maybe I'm not super perceptive?

      @tgl you make a very good point that it was abused by the wrong crowd. I believe there is currently a promo, $5 gets you $50 credit you can use in 60 days. You can prepay for 6 months as soon as you get your credits, and either blow the remainder or let it expire out. $5 for 6 months ain't bad in AU.

      When you order the service you want, change the cycle in the cart to 6 months and add it. Checkout and pay with the store credit :-)

      Edit: You still gotta cough up $5 initially to get the $50 credit, but since it expires in 60 days you just gotta choose the longest billing period you can afford.

      I had an existing monthly until I realized I could do this, so I just cancelled that at the end of billing period and migrated manually to the new 6 month one.

      I also edited my previous comment before I saw your reply to it.

      Or another genius approach would be to deposit $10, score $50 for a total of $60 and use that to buy a yearly.

      $10 for a year is just as good, plus you dont waste the leftovers.. us skint bastards need to remember these things :-)

      Sounds like a lot of work ... open a ticket and I'll just move your existing service to semi-annually after you add the credit ;)

      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.

      Or another genius approach would be to deposit $10, score $50 for a total of $60 and use that to buy a yearly.

      $10 for a year is just as good, plus you dont waste the leftovers.. us skint bastards need to remember these things :-)

      That was what I was wondering. If billed monthly, then impossible to finish the credits on the lowest plan but if this is possible, then probably deal of the year goes to this. Beats many BF deals.

    • @dahartigan Do you know what's the host node CPU?

    • Should look into RansomIT/ColoAU for your new network blend as well @QuantumCore - similar to Superloop :)
