    Whats the ideal vps plan and price for you?

    edited March 2012 in General

    I would love to hear what people want most. I think creating a VPS plan for yourself is the best idea. Now be realistic about this and not 10000TB of hdd space or anything.

    Here's my Ideal Plan:

    Ram: 1GB ( a small minecraft server / file backup )
    vSwap: 512MB
    Bandwidth: 200GB-1TB ( might need more than 200GB if I backup and use minecraft daily)
    Location: Near Michigan (not because I provide services there but because I live there lol)
    IPv4's: 2
    HDD Space: 50GB ( backups of my data, perhaps use this like dropbox )
    Price: About $7/m

    Whats your ideal plan?

      Well it depends, if the provider is you, @prometeus, @KuJoe, or any other well-known provider here in LET, I don't mind to pay yearly ;)

      I could do OpenVZ easily on that lol. If I ever see a Xen provider doing that
      little muscle in my brain says "don't make that server sitting next to you xen (although I totally could)"
      lol Picture of server sitting next to me ( don't mind the fact theirs no HDD's, they are in the mail ):

      Although if you can add another $10/m to that:

      My ideal ones would be something like:

      KVM or maybe Xen
      10GB HDD space
      512mb ram
      1,5-2tb bandwidth

      for $7 . I know this is ridiculous but if i see that kind of offer i know i won't pass it. I'm sure everyone would say the same.

      OpenVZ
      50GB
      1gb ram-2GB RAM
      100Gb bandwidth

      $7.

      Actually the chicagovps 2gb ram offer was amazing. I;m not sure how they did it but its pretty much the mother of all offer for this year.

    • @Damian said: quickpacket

      What was wrong with quickpacket?

    • @vps6net: Ticket #666917. I was having some issues with lack of connectivity from our servers that I wasn't experiencing with VPS nodes. The fact that it was hosted, literally, halfway around the world may have something to do with it. That issue, combined with a change in the target market for the project that it was part of, meant that we didn't need to keep it.

      My statement here was more of a statement that in the future, I'm not going to pay for a longer term of service than quarterly til I determine if the service fits my needs. It was NOT to speak poorly of VPS6's service; I was considering VPS6 for Los Angeles connectivity, since it appears that Hostitek has died.

      Xen PV/HVM or KVM:

      Disk: 10gb
      Bandwidth: 200gb
      Located in West Coast, not routing through nlayer since it recently had some issues of connectivity with my ISP
      @about $5, can be doubled if it's with peer1

    • @dancom96 said: What was wrong with quickpacket?

      Node instability and connectivity issues. The node that I was on rebooted 6 to 10 times in the month that I used their service. I can't imagine that there's much reason for continual reboots on OpenVZ. I've figured out how to keep our own VPS nodes up, even with vswap, so it doesn't give me a warm fuzzy feeling when I'm on a host where there isn't the same level of attention.

      Regarding their connectivity issues, it was similar to my earlier post where I would notice timeouts where other monitored systems did not match timeouts.

      This was during a period where I was culling the less-viable nodes, and it was on the chopping block.

      I will say that they had some pretty awesome support; after I submitted my cancellation request, they opened a support ticket with me and we discussed the issues I had encountered and they seemed to have genuine concern.

      Before anyone else asks :)

      -Hostpolar: 6 days to replace an ethernet card in a server? Srsly? I live in a rural area, and even I can still source and install an ethernet card in a couple of hours.

      -BGSA: Overpriced, support was exceptionally rude.

      -Alienlayer: SLOW. Slow network, slow disk i/o. Ignored support ticket about it. I'm not doing anything exceptionally intense here, but still.

      Other requirements: Ability to run IRC servers/services MUST be allowed.

      Yep :P However, we never get exactly what we want. Here is my ideal plan:
      512 ram
      burst/vswap 128-512 (i dont use that, but if something gets out of hand I need a bit of space till I fix it)
      20+ GB
      CPU 1 2000-3000
      BW 3 TB+
      5 $ for the minimal version.
      Oh, and OpenVZ...

      Ah, no problem, thanks for the explanation. Hopefully we can improve the connectivity in Turkey as time goes on, but at present it's just very expensive.

      KVM and Xen HVM both use QEMU to provide visualization, but I've found KVM edges out Xen HVM as more robust supporting more features to the guest.

      The issues with the node you were located on were resolved about a month ago (you can see evidence of this in the comments on our most recent post on LEB). We had a few abusing users that we removed and spread out the users on one node over two to improve performance.

      As for the connectivity issues you were encountering, we tried to work with you on that. We spent a few hours over several days going through the issue with our upstream providers, but we could not detect anything on our side. It's possible that the issue was with one of your upstream providers, or somewhere in between our location and yours, but we were unable to track it down since you elected to not pursue the issue. We do not believe it is our issue, since none of our other customers have reported similar issues. However, we're still willing to work with you if you are interested in trying again.
