ReThinkVPS is looking to expand into Xen VPS's. I was wondering if there is big interest in unmetered Xen VPS's and if so what kind of featuress would you like to come with it?

    1Gbit unmetered, 100GB disk, 2GB RAM, Xen HVM, Load own ISO, $5 a month ... ...What? You were thinking it too.

    When you find that perfect VPS, KEEP IT.

  • @DanielM It will be completely unmetered 1Gb/s but obviously we will have a fair usage policy.

    How's with your previous http://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/2293/would-you-buy-an-ultra-leb/p1 thread? :P Will be this time public offer or just something to discuss about? :P

  • @rethinkvps said: It will be completely unmetered 1Gb/s but obviously we will have a fair usage policy.

    How many GBs is fair?

  • DanielMDanielM Disabled

    @rethinkvps said: we will have a fair usage policy.

    So its not unmetered?

  • @DanielM No I never said that, we don't suspend for bandwidth usage but we don't allow the lowest possible package to push 10TB.

  • debugdebug Member

    You say you won't suspend for bandwidth...but you'll suspend the lowest package for pushing 10TB

  • semoweb is offering at WHT a VPS with 10TB transfer for $5.83. I was thinking of ordering one and trying to use all the bandwidth, just for the fun ;-)

  • If it's unmetered gigabit, I'd expect to use up to 313TB bandwidth each month. Sure, I probably won't, but I should be able to.

  • @Debug We would ask the client to either upgrade their packages or we would limit their network speed.

    Then you should label it 1Gbit till 10TB and 10Mbit after and not unmetered. Just a thought.

    Still 10TB on 1GBit is plenty for most people I think unless you are abusers like @rds100 :p

    Thats like 333 GB a day, how could you possibly use that expect with tor or public torrents?

  • Unmetered vps sounds like a good idea.

    I prefer the unmeated vps personally.

    You need to state the limits clearly.

  • @kalam why not just state the limit in the first place?

    Don't call it unmetered if it's not. It will ruin your reputation among popular forums and intelligent clients.

    FYI - Future LEB posts will reflect your definition of "unmetered".

    Shared port...

    I guess if he put 20 clients on the node...

    it would be 50mbps each with 1gbps burst = 16.5TB/month

  • So, according to this it's really:

    Unmetered, until either... 1) We want more money from you. 2) We want to save more money.

    Get two unmetered servers and constantly download to each other.

  • AaronAaron Member

    @rethinkvps You do this already. You're currently offering unmetered 1gbps VPS servers for $7.95 a month? http://www.rethinkvps.com/vpshosting.php

    Just be honest with your customers, it will turn out better.

    1. 1GB dd test file + plowup to various sites; loop
    2. If you add a 2nd VPS into the mix, plenty more ways to do it. Burn BW both ways with a socat relay, by downloading usenet binaries
    3. dl all the speedtest files from all servers
