Dedi or abuseable VPS with graphics card

NekkiNekki Moderator

I know this topic has been and gone in the past, but there's never been a resolution before.

With all the new LE* friendly dedi providers on the market, are there any with a graphics card/on board GPU?

At a pinch I'll take a VPS with the same if you don't mind me raping the cores and GPU for a few hours a day.

Europe or East Coast US.

Cheers.

  • Would a E3-1225v3 work?

    Dunno, how much?

    How much BW? What location? I can essentially sell you a dedicated AMD 6950 inside a KVM but BW is pretty limited and NAT only currently.

    Minimal bandwidth; after setup (no more than 20GB), I just need sufficient transfer to maintain a Remote Desktop session for a few hours a day.

    Any location with under 100ms to London.

    NAT is fine, my own IPv4 isn't needed.

  • Actually i3-4130 would be cheaper - last unit. I am pretty sure they have HD4400 on board.

    i3-4130

    8GB RAM

    1TB Disk

    5TB on GE

    We can probably get it for $25/month as its the last piece.

  • @core_rapist may I know what you'll be able to abuse with a gnome desktop?

    Pretty good at 25$.

    Great, I've still got $60 of credit with you due to overpayments so I'll have a crack at that for please. I assume that's $25/month pis monthly? Don't want to committing a longer term until I've proven I can do what I want.

    Fucking hell, delivered already.

    I'm still looking for other possibilities in case this doesn't work.

    It probably didn't need to get reviewed because you were paying from account credit.

    I think I spoke to soon, the server is there but I can't reinstall the OS yet so I assume there's still some setup ongoing.

    No rush.

    Open a ticket that should work straight off the bat

  • Just a quick question for MarkTurner :

    Can we install our on ISO with Delimiter ? Is there any IPMI/KVM available ?

    Also, do you have any server like that one in stock with a dedicated GPU ?

    Thank you.

  • Winne said: Can we install our on ISO with Delimiter ? Is there any IPMI/KVM available ?

    On all our blade servers there is a full IPMI/KVM, these all have virtual media so you can mount and ISO and boot from it.

    Which ISO did you want to boot?

    Also, do you have any server like that one in stock with a dedicated GPU ?

    Do you mean GPU as part of the CPU or standalone? Which GPU are you trying to get?

    So, server has the goods, but now I'm struggling to configure the video card drivers under Debian. Anyone got any suggestions?

    does debian has something like PPA of latest mesa git builds? if not build and install latest mesa git. older/stable version of mesa is bad.

    if you're going for video encoding maybe windows is better for you because Intel Quick Sync.

    I've installed gnome desktop (Centos) and it was running flash player with just an Adobe install, only issue, sound wasn't working. Shouldn't it be the same in your case?

    Footy Manager?

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

    No, you can do all of that without needing a GPU. I need to run an application that requires a GPU, so that GPU needs to be properly configured at the OS level in order to it to be utilised.

    Pretty sure I have that installed already, but I'll recheck.

    My word, this is serious work. You'd have thought it'd be easier to get a graphics card to work under Linux a little more easily these days.

    how do you access the server? if VNC, the vnc server must support libGL Extension. (try fedora if you're lazy, I mostly use fedora for 3d on VNC because it just werks.) or x11vnc to remote the main display as it has OpenGL.

    even without gpu/on a vps footy manager should also run from swrast gallium llvmpipe which also have OpenGL 3.3.

  • My suggestion.

    No idea exactly about your budget for this, but what about renting some EC2 GPU spot instances? Sometimes the price for some of these is really cheap, and since you need this a few hours a day, that may work for you.

    Maybe depending on your workload, your processing will be even faster than using integrated graphics, because they use more powerful cards.

    NX, which supports OpenGL. It has issue around direct rendering, but that would only result in performance issues, not a failure to install and configure the GPU drivers.

    IF I can get this working I'll cancel some other servers and migrate their work to this i3, so it's probably more cost-efficient than EX2 CPU instances in the long run, and more convenient. Don't need any real power as I'm not doing anything particularly complex.
