VPS in Australia

As many of you know, mr. @trewq is already providing solid and reasonably-priced services Down Under. However I wonder if there are new players in the market.

Please refrain from bringing-up OVH. Thank you.

    I will just note this since he mentioned not to bring up OVH; My Australia servers are using OVH, so if he just doesn't want the OVH network it's out of the question. Thanks though.

    I've tried a bunch of providers in Australia and Quantum Core is the best IMO. Solid network, modern servers (with Xeon Gold 6258r processors and very fast NVMe drives), and they're an actual registered Australian business with an office based in Australia. They're currently running a promotion where if you deposit AU$10 of credit, you'll get AU$50 for free, meaning you can get one year of their cheapest plan (usually $5/month) for only $10. https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/168661/quantum-core-50-free-credit

    To be perfectly honest I would say the reliability is probably a little lower than some of the other local operators and network speed is not super high, but as stated, small business with generally good customer service and good specs for the $.

    Yeah it depends on where you're pinging from. FlowVPS uses Equinix in Melbourne whereas QuantumCore uses Equinix in Sydney. For my use case I needed good ping times from Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, and Sydney data centers are generally better on average for that use case (Melbourne-based hosting was better for Melbourne-based users but worse for Sydney and Brisbane).

    edited December 2020

    Yeah Binary Lane are pretty good, and have a lot of good things going for them. I agree with @its420somewhere that their control panel is one of the best (if not THE best) among all VPS hosts. Their help desk knowledgebase is very good. Data transfer is pooled between all your VPSes with them (eg if you have two VPSes with 1000 GB per month each, you effectively get 2000 GB shared across both). Their VPSes are billed hourly, which is really useful if you want to clone a VPS and spin up another one for testing something just for a few hours. The CPU, RAM, and disk space are all individually scalable on demand, so for example if your VPS is perfect except you just need a bit more RAM, you can add more RAM without having to switch to a different plan and pay for extra stuff (like more disk space) that you don't need.

    An issue I had with them last time I tried their services (start of 2019) was that performance was wildly inconsistent. I could spin up two VPSes with identical specs, and sometimes one of them would feel significantly faster than the other (sometimes disk I/O, sometimes CPU power). They patched their kernels to not report stolen CPU time (KVM_FEATURE_STEAL_TIME) so it was harder to tell if the perf issues were due to noisy neighbours. I imagine the ability to scale CPU, RAM and disk space individually means that some nodes get very unbalanced.

    @hosthatch ?

    Thanks for the recommendations everyone. We recently expanded our NVMe plans there and are considering doing some sort of storage plans there as well (unfortunately the bandwidth costs make it very hard to do similar storage plans as we do in the EU/US).

    We didn't expect as much interest in Sydney and we already sold out our available capacity in a few days. If you want a small VM, please reach out and I can get you set up. For anything bigger, we'll have more capacity there hopefully before Christmas time.

    Can you do special offers on tiny VPSes with say 256 MB RAM and 5 GB space? I sent an email about small hosthatch VPSes for dnstools.ws two weeks ago but never heard back (just assumed you were busy but maybe it got marked as spam). I did actually end up getting one of the flash sale bundles that has a Sydney VPS so I'm looking forward to having that provisioned :)

    We're going to re-do our standard plans starting from January 2020, and include much more resources by default.

    We will likely have a 'starter' plan that comes to around $15-17/year for 1 GB RAM / 10 GB NVMe or something along those lines. But that is the lowest resources we can do on a VPS.

    After a month of hoping @trewq gets some stock I have to look elsewhere. I came ->.<- this close to signing up with @quantumcore last night but in doing my due diligence I realised they want control over what content I have, and that is not acceptable to me. Shame, as they look to have what I want.

    And because I know people will ask - I'm talking about their AUP against having lawful adult content and lawful adult discussions.

    I want to support Aussies but by and large we're a bunch of prudes. :P

  • My 2c on Sydney services;

    HostHatch - Haven't tested extensively since picking up a BF KVM however for the price, I can't see myself complaining.

    HostUS - Been with them for years using their OVZ Sydney presence as a personal VPN. Decided to take the leap and pick up a few KVM's on launch for personal projects and have been blown away by the performance.

    BinaryLane - Have been using them for over 3 years now for multiple clients with nothing but positive feedback ( I don't actually think I have a support ticket with them). Their panel is miles ahead of a lot of providers with extensive onsite and offsite backup options. They also share their upgrades on all POPs in Australia on Twitter and personally (I believe Sydney and Brisbane are fully upgraded now) Their new panel is coming soon too.

    RansomIT - Slightly more expensive then most, however, Oliver's customer service and network experience are truly inspiring, especially with custom dedi needs. I'd be lying to say that network isn't perfect as i did experience multiple outages throughout the year I was with him. Note: Oliver was always fully transparent on what the issue was.

    FlowVPS - Decided to not renewal my Melbourne service after the first year mainly due to our client base being in Sydney. However, @trewq has a special eye for detail and never had any issues, besides the occasional network drop (I believe its RansomIT's infrastructure)

    Linode - Solid but CPU's limited to 2.2ghz and for $5/m all the services above provide much better performance.

    Yeah, that's a nasty TOS. I particularly dislike the "small business catering to a single country" clause.

  • Best providers

    • OVH
      OK Network, shit support and if your VPS is down just give up, no proper IPv6. I guess they are pretty cheap and the best value, but I would probably stay away because they kind of suck.

    • Vultr
      Pretty good value, their CPU and disk speeds are very fast for their pricing, speedtests are up to 10gbps which is the fastest I have seen on a VPS in Australia.

    • Quantum Core
      They are really good, their prices are very cheap, good network, IPv6 support. Can't really ask for more.

    • Network Presence
      I think they start from $3/month, although network and disk speeds are pretty slow.

    • Streamline Servers
      They are a bit more expensive, but their network is probably the best out of most VPS providers in AU (GSL Networks).

  • I second RansomIT. Been good for me.

  • VPS other than USA and Europe will cost you a kidney :)

  • I use Vultr, HostUS, HostHatch for Sydney location

    Thanks. Picked one up. It's KVM, by the way. $35/2years was too good.

    Good point... I didn't think to mention that since KVM is the 'standard' cloud VM these days
