Vultr announce $1,000 account credit event?

Is there event for $1,000?

Comments

  • A post with a title more informative than the body?

    Vultr are giving $1,000 credit to the customer who happens to launch the 100,000th instance.

  • I want to win... again.

    Signature goes here.

    Contest Terms: Spamming new instances is prohibited. Users launching excessive instances per hour will be excluded from the prize. Winner will be credited within 24 hours after the 100,000th instance is created.

    Good, makes it fair :D

    I can't find the number of deployed instances on their website

  • Wow, another event!

    See above. The whole point is people deploying instances with a chance to win, not just start deploying instances when it gets to 99,990

  • The idea is not to spam vps creation so hiding the counter will helpfully mitigate that.

  • Is this the reason my vps io speed is slow? :(

    if you run a very large database or complex applications which uses large files and you want to improve server performance, I'm sure you will make the dd test every hour :)

    And slow down your application and everyone elses every hour? BS - no sysadmin in their right mind would do this. It wouldn't matter for measuring performance anyway - most people around here use some sort of caching so you would probably be hitting the cache.
