VPSDime Review - 9 Months In
Just over 9 months ago I signed up for a VPSDime High RAM plan in Dallas. I got it when @serverian was running a 1 month launch trial, and ended up sticking around.
High RAM VPS (Dallas)
Performance on the VPS in Dallas has been excellent. I never bothered benchmarking much of anything, the performance was good and my sites were up - zero issues since mid-September last year. I don't recall any real downtime other than the odd reboot - which I believe were for upgrades(!) - Node was upgraded to SSD Cached for free.
The service has been excellent and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a high RAM VPS with solid performance, it's a steal at $7/mo for 6GB.
Move to High Storage
My rebill date was a couple days ago, and due to my recent dedi purchase I didn't have a real need for the High Memory VPS anymore so I requested a move to their newer Storage VPS line - asking if I could apply my upcoming credit to a storage VPS. I got a response near instantly and the new box was setup in minutes.
I requested to stay in the same location (Dallas) and after ~24 hours testing I wasn't thrilled with the network performance. The box has excellent download speeds, but upload speeds to the other boxes I tested wasn't up to my standards. Could only get 1.5-3MB/s up. While still decent and backups to the box would be fast, I could see there might be a problem if I ever needed to restore the backups quickly.
After a quick ticket in I was offered a move. Their support were willing to throw a test file up in the UK location for me to try out and speeds looked good. Gave the go-ahead and was moved within an hour or so.
Overall Score: 9.5/10
I've been happily using the VPSDime service for 9 months and hope to use them for many more years. They're right up there with my other 2 favourite providers (BuyVM & Ramnode). I can only dock half a point for the 'poor' network performance as my experience up to that point, and now past that point, has been nothing but excellent.
I've also been a happy Winity.io customer with a 4GB box in Los Angeles since ~February.
