Layer.ae Free IPv6 VPS for developers :-)

rskrsk Member, Provider

Many of you are familiar with MyRSK, and the great service that we provide since 2009. Many providers come and go, but we are here to stay :-)

Layer is devoting its resources and employees to help many developers world wide, who have the capability of building great applications, websites, and scripts.

Therefore, we have built a platform named "Layer Dev", with a single purpose of helping out developers by providing them free virtual servers where they can work on their projects and scripts for absolutely no charge.

These VPSs come with 2x CPU cores, 256MB of ram, 10GB of RAID HDD, 500GB of Bandwidth on gigabit speeds, and a /64 of IPv6. If the developers think it is not enough, they can donate an amount of their choice (even if it is $1) to double their resources for the lifetime of their account.

The free tier plans come with some limitations to avoid abuse, such as no mailing, tor, torrenting, etc.

Visit our site to subscribe for an early access to the BETA : http://dev.layer.ae

As always, we welcome new ideas to better deploy the Dev platform :-)

  • I'm not sure about the virtualization, but it's probably OpenVZ.

    Can we please use a word other than "donate" when referring to a for-profit business? Pretty please?

    Currently openvz, with an option in the future to deploy kvm :)

    The dev part of Layer is not for profit. The donations will help add more nodes, additional features, etc.

  • Registered and can't wait more =)

    So the dev part is completely separated, with a 501(c) or similar foreign designation?

    There is no "foreign designation". It is completely separated from our paying platform. Even if the developer wants to move to our paying platform then the whole vps is migrated out of Layer Dev and all things will be handled by Layer. Not dev.

    So, no.

    Just to update you guys, it is most likely that you get your welcome emails by today. Once you receive the email, you can use the order link to get your free VPS.

    Unfortunately, it is a first come first serve approach, that is due to the sheer amount of signups we received. Rest assured, most of you will get your free VPSs though, if not in the first batch, definitely in the coming ones.

    Thanks!

  • Did anyone get his VPS yesterday? I didn't.
    I'd expect to see at least a few 'thank you'/feedback posts if VPSs had really been delivered (as announceded by OP)... It's a bit odd to see zero replies by now .

  • @Rallias From dōnāre to give.

  • Do these have IPv4 ports like LES or are they purely IPv6?

    Favourite host in general: Ramnode (affiliate link)
    Favourite host for hourly billing/custom ISOs: Vultr ($50 free credit for new accounts, affiliate link)

  • Nope.

  • still waiting

  • rskrsk Member, Provider

    Priority was given to current clients. Dont worry, my word is my word and i never failed to deliver.

    Patience is a virtue and remember there are more than 300 signups.

    Felt its better to do single mails insteinstead of mass to avoid spamming those who are still in the queue.

    @hostnoob said:

    They have a single port to allow you to ssh in via an ipv4 address.

    Is that a requirement, or just because it's so hot over there you want something light?

    That's not "donating". That's pay-what-you-want. Donations necessarily yield nothing directly in return - that's what makes them donations.

    Calling it "donating" is misleading, non-profit or not.

    Well, once you release it, then you can come back and say that, in bold. That will make everyone happy :)

    You guys are pretty rude and demanding for a free service given by @rsk. The fact that he's offering this is pretty nice and generous.

    In b4 ppl call me suckup/buttkisser/bootlicker.

  • @Pwner said:

    Sorry if I sounded rude, but my point is not to abuse the word "soon". While I appreciate @rsk for the free service, but it would be great if I actually get the service not just words of free service. In other words, don't advertise something when it's not ready, even if it's free.

    First come first served. If you're late to party then it's your own fault.

    This the reason why mostly this of type projects are closed. You guys blame @rsk for not providing free service ASAP For only you and don't care about others.

    Overall, Go complain for service you have paid.

    There are many users on here not getting it, and I'm not complaining. Saying it's coming late isn't complaining.

    Ok, what project you're planning to develop ASAP if you get free vps?

    Let see if anyone would be interested in giving you free vps ASAP without waiting and placing ADS.

    @rsk cancel all current vps, require open source projects only and with backlink something like this "we've developed this project thankfully by using free vps provided by layer.ae".

    I'm sure almost %99 of current vps will be used for something different
