Ramnode benchmark - SSD-Cached 256mb

I have been customer for a few days right now. It was choosing between Buyvm and Ramnode (http://www.ramnode.com/) but because Buyvm was out of stock I bought one at Ramnode. So far I'm really happy with it, Openvpn is running without any problems and I mainly use it for watching Netflix. I'm currently also running irssi on it. I won't write a review because I think I can't write a good review without being atleast a customer for a month.

If there is anything you would like to see tell me and I will see if I can run it for you :)

Adding the US rep's instead of the original german one solved the solution. Thanks for informing me about it Nick, :) 10/10 right now and happy customer! :)

  • Most repository downloads are slow unless you're running your own local cache dedicated to your network.

    Thanks for the post. I know a couple of our templates have German repos by default for some reason. Have you tried manually changing that?

    @Nick_A No, I expected they would have got the right from the beginning. I will try it and report back in :)

    I changed the German rep's to the US ones and atleast apt-get update works 10 times faster now. Ofcourse I got nothing to install right now so I have to wait for it to see if it really worked. Tough thanks for letting me know @Nick_A Going to change the OP.

  • Good job Nick_A :)

  • The repo issues is often a problem for folks.

    I wish providers would get the right most local and best performing repos in their images by default.

    At minimum, setting up a local repo / mirror / cache really would help them as well as end user. Has to be lots of repo traffic overall for major providers. Know BuyVM has their own mirror for San Jose location...
