DataShack - Dual Xeon 5462 Benchmark

DataShack - Dual Xeon 5462 Benchmark

edited September 2012 in General

Hey guys, I know there's been a lot of argument about what constitutes a low end Dedi. As mentioned in previous posts I've been wanting to migrate a heap of stuff off Linode for ages, I've been keeping an eye on DataShack & found a pretty nice deal that I thought I'd grab.

Dual Intel Xeon 5462 8 Cores / 8 Threads 8GB DDR2 ECC RAM 500GB HDD 20TB Bandwidth

Order link: https://www.datashack.net/cart/?id=182 Use the coupon SAVE15 to get this config for $74/month

The benchmark below I replaced the main HDD for a 128GB SSD & am using the HDD as a storage drive (they seem to be out of stock of SSD's now though).

Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5462 @ 2.80GHz
Benchmark Run: Fri Sep 28 2012 17:12:40 - 17:40:52

  • @serverbear Single HDD? No RAID1 at least?

    I just noticed they have E3s, My day has just been completed but not sure how I would go about asking them to upgrade all nodes.

  • only 500GB HDD :(

  • Sounds like a pretty good deal.

    BTW what does it mean by /29 /28 /27 ips etc etc.how many ips exactly are those?

    5

    @cosmicgate said: /28

    13

    @cosmicgate said: /27

    29

  • @cosmicgate said: BTW what does it mean by /29 /28 /27 ips etc etc.how many ips exactly are those?

    /29 - 8 IPs, 5 usable /28 - 16 IPs, 13 usable /27 - 32 IPs, 29 usable

  • Thanks guys. So /26 - 64 ips, 61 usable?

    vpsdash.com - Tips and tricks in life, information and technology news to get things done

  • @cosmicgate That's right. You need to loose 3 IPs in order to be able to use the block. The smaller the block, the bigger the waste.

    /small rant: I find it ridiculous that some data centers still try to force a /29 block on you, despite the fact that a bigger single block is all you need. I actually like to be considerate about IPv4 usage / waste.
