Thanks @Brandon offer me the Virtual Server free for a month.

The detail of the Server from the ordering page:

• 256MB RAM • 10GB Storage • 250GB Bandwidth • 1 Free IP Address • Dallas • SolusVM Control Pane • IRC / OpenVPN Allowed • Price $6.45/mo • order Link:

The normal price is a little expensive.

I run a small testing after I received the email about the server.

  1. IO Tesing

     [[email protected] ~]#dd if=/dev/zero of=test.bin bs=64k count=4k oflag=dsync    
     4096+0 records in
     4096+0 records out
     268435456 bytes (268 MB) copied, 2.72925 seconds, 98.4 MB/s
     [[email protected] ~]#dd if=/dev/zero of=testfilex bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync
     16384+0 records in
     16384+0 records out
     1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 9.24248 seconds, 116 MB/s

This is amazing.

  1. RAM Detail

     [[email protected] ~]# free -m
     total    used    free   shared   buffers   cached
     Mem:                256     153     102       0         0       142
     -/+ buffers/cache:  10      245
     Swap:                0        0      0

    No double the server is based on OpenVZ with 256MB and not any burst or vswap.

  2. Network Testing

     [[email protected] ~]# wget
     Connecting to||:80... connected.
     HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
     Length: 104857600 (100M) [application/octet-stream]
     Saving to: `100mb.bin'
     104,857,600 11.0M/s   in 9.1s
     09:42:40 (11.0 MB/s) - `100mb.bin' saved [104857600/104857600]

This shows that the network interface is 100MBps.

  1. CPU Testing

     [[email protected] ~]# less /proc/cpuinfo
     processor       : 0
     vendor_id       : GenuineIntel
     cpu family       : 6
     model          : 45
     model name     : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2620 0 @ 2.00GHz
     stepping        : 7
     cpu MHz        : 1200.000
     cache size       : 15360 KB

    This server has 4 E5-2620 CPUs. It is really powerful.

  2. Operating System

     [[email protected] ~]# lsb_release –a
     Version:    :core-4.0-ia32:core-4.0-noarch: graphics-4.0-ia32:graphics-4.0-noarch:printing-4.0-ia32:printing-4.0-noarch
     Distributor ID: CentOS
     Description:    CentOS release 5.3 (Final)
     Release:        5.3
     prename:       Final

So far everything goes perfect. And I am planning to build a WordPress on it.

The SolusVM is very convenient to reinstall the OS with some clicks.

But the root password need to reset after the server online. Good or not?

For me, I can accept that.

Finally, I build a WordPress Blog with the review of this server. The uptime will list on the page.

That’s end. | Buy Virtual Machine Information: Reviews & Promotions
