    I think there was a little drama last year with those cores - dedicated cores?

    @Philipp said: And its not 16 % less

    Of course you're also right. Fixed.

  • are the cores dedicated or shared?

    RackNerdGang est. 11/11/20

  • @PHP_Friends hello, have being eyeing the page since some time.
    Trying my luck here, but are the cores dedicated? Generally all your offers have dedicated cores, I think.
    If not, just wanted to know if there's any limit on CPU usage. Won't bash it, maybe some spells of light remote development, and maybe some Plex playback.

    Thanks :)

  • The price without VAT is calculated like 4.95€÷116% not 4.95€×84% :D

    Thanked by 1PHP_Friends
  • Is it with unmetered bandwidth?

  • @PHP_Friends - can you also provide details on the specific CPU models being used on the host node? Thanks.

    No, dedicated cores are always clearly described as dedicated at our product descriptions. But according to our quality standards we make sure the nodes don't get overloaded, so there should not be a relevant amount of CPU steal. We just don't guarantee it 24/7 like we do at our more expensive (regular) products :)

    And we have added more powerful CPUs this year (mainly Intel Xeon E5-2650 v2 running at stable 3 GHz), so way more power than we had last year (mainly used E5-2620/2630 v2).

  • Has anyone already bought and wants to share the benchmark?

  • @PHP_Friends Any discounts on the usual ryzen line? :tongue:

  • Highly recommend @PHP_Friends using them for more than 2 years, more stable and good provider

    There's nothing planned yet as we are permanently nearly running out of hardware for our regular products. Having even more AMD EPYC / NVMe orders would get us in trouble :D

    @suricloud said:

    Please check https://php-friends.de/vserver-ssd/traffic
    In short: 10 TB per month come with 1 Gbps, if you use way more your server will be throttled to 10 Mbps till the end of the month.

    No, that was an offer with Intel Xeon E5-2630 v3 / v4 CPUs from our "SSD G2". G3 servers, which we started about 18 months ago, have not been part of any promotional offers yet as the hardware is brand-new, so the price can't be heavily reduced. At least not when you have enough regular orders as new nodes must be paid somehow :smiley:

    In my opinion this is not possible with our quality standards, so there's nothing planned which get's way cheaper than this one.
