Hello!

We’d like to start by wishing you and your family a happy holidays, and a happy new years!

We’re so damn excited to announce the availability of our Block Storage Slabs, as well as our Ryzen 3900x based slabs, in Luxembourg and New York!

Snapshots & Backups are now also available in both locations! Snapshots are free, but limited in count.

IP load balancing is available in the form of ECMP. It's completely free, just contact our support department and we'll assign you a private ASN that you can use to peer with our route server and announce your floating/anycast IP addresses!


BLOCK STORAGE SLABS!

  • $1.25/month per 256GB.
  • Increases in increments of 1TB after the 1st 1TB.
  • Maximum of 10TB per Volume.
  • Maximum of 8 Volumes attached to a single Virtual Server.
  • Storage is NVME cached for both reads and writes (over 10TB of active caching!)
  • Storage is connected to all nodes over Infiniband RDMA to give local storage like performance!

  • Nice, just out of curiosity are you using Gluster for storage? Since ceph doesn't support RDMA.

    Can you please explain what this means to a n00b that doesn't really understand this stuff? Does it mean I can use my BuyVM anycast addresses for load balancing across multiple VPSes? Is it round robin or could it be based on server load?

    @ferri said: Same question

    It's just packet roundrobin based on hashing. It's unaware of server load nor does it do any health checks of any kind. Adding/revoking of servers from the 'pool' is all done by announcing/revoking the IP from your BGP session with us.

  • @Francisco , what is the difference if I purchase directly from here to the website?
    If I visit the link of both plans, it goes to same cart configuration "Luxembourg - AMD RYZEN KVM - LU RYZEN KVM 1GB". Almost same specs but maybe it's on the CPU? here its 1/4 core, in website its 1 core.

    Plans in this thread
    SLICE 1024

    • ¼ Core @ 3.9+ GHz on a Ryzen 3900X CPU!
    • Fair Share CPU Usage
    • 1024 MB Memory
    • 20 GB NVME Storage
    • 1000Mbit Unmetered Bandwidth!
    • 1 IPv4 Address
    • $3.50/month - Las Vegas / New York / Luxembourg

    Plans in https://buyvm.net/kvm-dedicated-server-slices/
    What is the CPU here?

    Hello,

    I haven't updated the site to show that we're using Ryzen 3900x's yet :) We were waiting on LU to be done that way there wasn't any cries of false advertising and all that.

    Thanks. does this mean most of the plans 1024 will have Ryzen 3900x with ¼ Core?

  • FranciscoFrancisco Top Provider

    @ravenchad said: Thanks. does this mean most of the plans will have Ryzen 3900x with ¼ Core?

    The 1GB plan will have 1/4 of a core. The bigger the plan the more dedicated CPU you get.

    The CPU isn't capped, it's there more incase you slam the CPU 24/7 and we do enforce a cap.

    at least a location closer to countries in Southeast Asia, or any location with the best route (lower latency) to Indonesia. my hetzner cloud in falkenstein is ~ 170 ms, online.net dedibox paris is ~ 166 ms, but buyvm vegas is ~ 210 ms and lux is ~ 257 ms to jakarta
