There's not much to say at the moment. I got a good deal and I jumped on it! They've been very good to me and the server has worked as intended.

I have more benchmarks from day one (September 17, 2016) at this site. I intend to do an update in three or four months, as it is way too early to say anything. But I'm happy with the service so far.

  • What colocrossing location?

    You should add more exact locations of where you are testing to on your benchmark, for example DO and RamNode both have NY locations, which would show a good result for CC buffalo while DO SF would be a bit slower.

    Yeah, sorry about that. The CC location is Buffalo, NY.

    You can see the locations used by the script, here:

    I'm not sure but virmach's one is v2, and their servers have 32gb ram, not 16gb like in benchmark.

    yyyyyy

    It's not VirMach. I got it straight from ColoCrossing, no middle-man.

    Must've been a loss leader deal to drum up some publicity. I want to like CC, because who doesn't like dirt cheap E3s, but every time I test that Buffalo network out it's consistently hot trash.

    I didn't even intend to actually publish any review here or even on my site, but I figured "what the heck, what's the harm?", and did it anyway.

    For now, the point is just to establish a "baseline" and I'll post an update in three or four months. It's way too early to say anything about the service, other than the fact that ColoCrossing handled everything very nicely and communication has been great.

    It was a spur of the moment thing. I should have sat down and actually put some effort into it. But what the hell, this will have to suffice for now.

    This is also somewhat ironical as I have always had a great deal of disdain for ColoCrossing ;)

    Give it another go. We've made tons of improvements the last year, and if you're a direct customer and not on shared resources like a vps you're going to have a great experience.

  • @k0nsl, nothing against your thread but, with specifics such as price/deal/provider missing, I find limited value in this thread.

    Even if the benchmarks completely blew away anything we've seen, without a price, none of us could do a proper comparison.

    Maybe a bad example but, I could easily grab a cheap 64GB RAM beefy dedicated server and rave to LET about the resources I have at my disposal. However, if I divulged that the box was from VolumeDrive, everyone would have a very different opinion on the matter.

    Hope to see follow-ups, along with more details.

  • Ishaq said: Everyone hating on CC is just jumping on the bandwagon

    Reminds me of the episode of Southpark where Cartman gets his own amusement park and doesn't let anybody in. Doesn't divulge on details, if any other user did this with another provider accusations would be very similar such as paid posts/shilling/etc.

    Plus a reply, like below, doesn't help and adds fuel to it.

    and if you're a direct customer and not on shared resources like a vps you're going to have a great experience.

    We do have a pretty smart, and recently improved, network monitoring platform that stops abusive traffic in real time. There are the rare false positives that do happen, which we regret and work to avoid at all costs. We're very much committed to ensuring our network is clean.

    e3-1240v3 with 16gb and 2 x 2 tb for $60 with 10 TB bandwidth and a 1 gbit port and 5 IPs. Deal?

    At this price, correct. We can do other locations but the price would be $90/month.

    Buffalo won't disappoint you if you give a try. We've invested very heavily into our home market lately.

    Decent price certainly, I will mull it over.

    yes, they advertise as v2, but I means you got in fact, according the reports of many friends :p

  • k0nslk0nsl Member, Member without signature

    I hear ya. I should have been a lot more clear in my post and I should have added more details. I will do that on the follow-up in three or four months.

    I needed to get one box migrated from DataShack/Nocix as I got tired of them and I was willing to give ColoCrossing a chance. So I did. I got this new dedicated server from Mr. Biloh for 60 bucknicks per month. He matched the price I had with Nocix, basically.

    I have some VPS services on CC network and other than this dedicated, nothing more. If you look at my comments here and there about CC and CVPS (et cetera) you'll see I've never said anything positive. So this is at least not some kind of shill-thing going on here. I was simply willing to give them a try and so far I've had nothing to complain about.
    All my IPs are clean (well, one is listed here).
