NexusBytes Review

Causality is a bitch.

@Edmond asked for more stock on SG, so I asked @seriesn for more resources and he asked me if I can to do a review.

I usually don't do them, because I am to lazy.
But okay here we go.

Specs

4 Cores
4GB Memory
60GB NVMe
1TB Bandwith

So, what we got here are 2x Sponsored KVM's for microLXC, 2x 4GB ones.

Support

So far I had one ticket, due to IPv6 issues related to Virtualizor.
He did promised to come back to me in 4 days with a resolution, after 5 days, I asked him about the status, he said Virtualizor has provided a work around and since then, it works fine.

Uptime

Uptime wise, you can make yourself a picture: https://status.microlxc.net/
These are 60s checks btw, so far no big dents.

To be fair, I did a few reboots on SG.

Performance
Performance wise, I got no Steal or I/O wait or such alerts, it performs very well.
I cannot do any bench right now, due these nodes already have stuff running, but surely you find stuff on LET.

Fin

  1. Support is quick
  2. Uptime is decent
  3. Performance is decent

From my side, everything works, I can say I do recommend NexusBytes despite these ones are Sponsored.

Going playing some games now, brb.

    Im sure of the 4gb ram, about 1gb should used by proxmox itself...

    It not look like review. Where are Benchmarks?

    Out of many review I read, this one made me giggle like a teenage girl. Gotta loves @Neoon's minimalistic approach.

    Thanks fam <3 and thank you for allowing me the option to sponsor your sweet project :)

    Thanks for doing this @Neoon and @seriesn and sorry for the inconvenience caused, really appreciate this!

    I haven't ran any benchmarks on it (trying to keep the usage as soft as possible) but it runs as well as any other VPS, if not way faster with the snappy Ryzen 9 3900X that it runs on! I really enjoy using it so thank you! :)

    Well, I actually did run benchmarks on most NexusBytes / @seriesn locations and I can confirm that his Ryzen nodes have very good CPU and memory performance.

    Thanks no.

    No one ever said microLXC uses Proxmox.
    I even needed to choose a storage method that was 1 stop away from wood, so it uses next to nothing in memory.

    It works, besides the public imageservers are shit.

    oh, I just assumed so. nice that you use some other solution...

    I too am going to switch nat vps to lxc in future...waiting for virtualizor unprivileged lxc support...

    I am mostly quite open what I am using, already talked about that on LES.
    LXD with the RestAPI, which supports unprivileged containers since a while, that's what microLXC is using.

  • nice review Sir

    don't forget to click Thanks

    @Neoon sorry for the confusion! think I was sleepy while typing that, :|
    I had tried proxmox a while back & it used about 1gb ram on host, so I was meaning to say you can use a larger kvm instead of 3-4 smaller ones which will give you more capacity. but you don't use proxmox, there is no issue. :)

    Regards

    Yea that was the goal, not to use bloatmox.
    It does indeed eat about 700 to 1 gig for nothing.

    LXD uses nothing.
