    The servers are excellent, as usual. Tests for 512MB (ioping, i/o, network speed, unixbench, geekbench): pastebin.com/xjk3MwzD

    Results are better than my other (more expensive) VPS's with similar specs.
    ioping average: 0.2ms
    dd: 252 MB/s
    Cachefly 100MB: 6.98M/s
    Unixbench: 1925.3
    Geekbench: 3907

  • Not from the current offer but a review how the performance looks like after 2 months or so:

    CPU model :    AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 6176
    Number of cores : 2
    CPU frequency : 2299.928 MHz
    Total amount of ram : 512 MB
    Total amount of swap : 512 MB
    System uptime :   31 days, 9:24,
    Download speed : (55.3MB/s)
    I/O speed : 133MB/s
    ioping: min/avg/max/mdev = 0.3/0.3/0.4/0.0 ms

    How is the disk performance and reliability compared to your SSD plan?

  • prometeusprometeus Member, Provider

    SSD should give a more stable latency and higher iops, reliability is for both in the hands of the murphy law :-)

  • I think you made a typo on the price for both plans.

    so confused, what is swap per each offer?

  • prometeusprometeus Member, Provider

    @LAKid said: so confused, what is swap per each offer?

    KVM give you a blank disk to install the OS like with a real computer, you decide (or let the installer decide) how big the swap partition need to be.

    thanks, I will pass, the price seems to be very weird comparing to your birthday offer.

  • prometeusprometeus Member, Provider

    I think you are mixing the special that was sent via email to the clients (sold out now) with these. Look at the plan name they are different.

    :-)

    I know, but that was really a gift we handed to 80 clients (only 40 were planned) :-)

    After one of my offers you bought one plan and for some reason there was some I/O problem while you tested the vps, you asked a refund and I did it. I think you are the less staying client ever. I want a second chance: chose a plan and pm me the price you want to pay, you'll have it and hope this time you will stay with us a bit more :-)

    You're probably confused, I never ordered your birthday one because I currently have 3 vps with you, so I wanted to cancel one small monthly vps and grab yearly one, but it was gone, so I was waiting for your posting, but comparing to your birthday one, this is 50% of what you offered, since I canceled small vps for** anticipating similar deal**, now I have 2 remaining.
    I'm not complaining or anything, just clarifying.
    Also, I am not the less staying client ever, if I am, why would I have 3 vps with you? :)

    @LAKid said: You're probably confused

    I'm 46 so maybe these are sign of premature senility, I just realized who you are but never linked you with lakid :-)

    I just wanted to be younger, :)
    received your email, didn't have to do this.:)

    Great Service, and server, thanks...:)

    any plans of adding more iso?

    @jcaleb said: any plans of adding more iso?

    what do you suggest? Recently we added the gentoo latest install :-)

    FreeBSD? Although I don't need it in the near future. But it would be better to have more options =) I just have the impression that people choose KVM when their need is not Linux. i.e. BSD or windows.

  • prometeusprometeus Member, Provider
    edited May 2012

    I'll install the freebsd iso. As for windows I'm thinking about adding the spla iso, the problem is we should get enough orders to justify the costs of the datacenter license for two sockets...

    You could add the OpenSuse ISO to complete the collection of popular free server operating systems. Scientific Linux is another common choice.

  • LAKidLAKid Member

    One of the best providers for LET members....thanks.

  • jcalebjcaleb Moderator

    I should have taken 2 gift package when i had the chance =(
