Hi

Some may have seen jhadley on here advertising that he would be starting a new business as a kind of "hobby", to do a bit of testing and to get a few customers.

I was one of the first people to purchase one off him. There were a few initial delays with hardware and stuff, which he emailed me about and I was fine about and in no hurry.

Here is a test file download....

[[email protected] ~]# wget http://cachefly.cachefly.net/100mb.bin

And also...

[[email protected] ~]# dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync && rm -f test

Overall, very happy. It is SSD-based so it's definitely worth it!

Well done James

  • I presume 100MBit line? I'm curious how the hardware will perform with some more people on that node. Can you do a geekscore? ;]

    Am guessing so.
    Where do I do a geekscore, sorry?

    100Mbit line, yes. Depending on demand I can get it upgraded to 1000Mbit but guessing this will be ok for now.

    Geekbench of a the 512MB package is 7123 http://browse.geekbench.ca/geekbench2/view/747384

    Everything is restricted on the servers so that the values remain roughly constant as more servers are added to the node.

  • Look at that. A response from the man himself, good one James.

    Wow. that's an insane score :o, may I ask the location, and DC of these servers?

    Edit: Your site tells me these things. (might I say, awesome blog / personal site too!)
