  • Vouch for VirtIO! :)

    Thanked by 1jh
  • Looks interesting. The tiny disk is the and small bandwidth makes it non doable for me though.

    Will be keeping an eye on virt.io's offers though, some interesting stuff in the mix like the Anycast DNS and CDN included.

    Thanks. Feel free to contact me if you need a little more of anything - can quote competitively.

  • More folks should be looking for additional competitive free addons, perks, etc. Beyond more RAM, more disk, more throughput. @jhadley certainly you are on to something.

  • @pubcrawler A CDN goes a long way in improving load times, so I believe that it's cool that @jhadley made it part of the package :) Good luck with your offer.

  • @marcm, agreed on the CDN part.

    We string nodes and real servers all over the place to accomplish the same general idea.

    CDNs are interesting, but can be a PITA and lots of over-dependence on them.

    Really aren't any cheap CDN solutions that have great coverage in all places. Big gaps in the cheap CDNs for Asia, Africa and South America.

    Sorta, not exactly :P

    CDN77 uses OnApp's CDN Federation as their backbone - Regardless, it's a pretty nice CDN. I'm currently using MaxCDN, but I'll be switching to CDN77 shortly due to it's widely expanding (and surprisingly cheap) network.

  • That OnApp CDN sounds interesting as does CDN77.

    Pricing on CDN77 isn't cheap though.

    $49 / per TB in US and EU.

    $125 / per TB in Asia

    $150 / per TB in Australia

    $180 / per TB in India

  • OnApp seems to be a provider solution with $$ cost for the software and management.

    Interesting model from OnApp.

    @pubcrawler said: Pricing on CDN77 isn't cheap though.

    It's cheap considering their large network; MaxCDN has pretty much 0 coverage in Asia, and only 2 POPs in Europe and still charges ~$80/TB. If you were to go via RackSpace Cloud Files (powered by Akamai) you'll be paying $184 / TB, regardless of the locations served, (Not including storage costs) which seems significantly more expensive.

    Knowing that the majority of my traffic comes from Europe and North America, It's definitely more cost efficient to use CDN77. That said; as it's effectively a 'crowd sourced' CDN platform, it'd be interesting to see how well it performs, and how reliable it is.
