Initial thoughts on Tzulo

I decided to try the offer on LEB from Tzulo. The server was set up in a couple of hours. Decided to take a SSD over the 2TB hard drive.

Worried about the life of the SSD...

Comments

  • The network is good. AYKservers (re)sells a lot of their servers.

    How to clean up a questionable reputation: throw the kids some BF/CM offers.

  • Thanks for sharing. Looks pretty good. I wish their VPS wasn't sold out so I could try them out, might use them for colo.

    That ssd though.... it has been on for 1002.958333333333 days. Around 2.7 years old.

    would be more worried about the quality, since SSD's have improved a lot over the last several years

    wouldn't worry about the life. a brand new ssd would probably be more likely to fail in the next 6 months

  • I've looked again the freevps bench.sh v2(got my own copy from a few months ago) and it has 100MB files all over it.

    I'll make a copy for myself and see if there are 1000/10000MB(there were some time ago). IMO longer downloads give a more accurate view than 2-10s downloads.

    Go give Vultr(referral) a try. | GNU/Linux http://debian.org

  • Anyone know how long Tzulo has been around, or any long term experience with them?

    Don't forget failproof. If a download takes 2hours, it won't be fun.

  • any experiences using tzulo ?

  • Thank you for sharing so much! The overall impression is pretty good. Best of luck, mate!
