Interest in Windows VPS?

edited April 2013 in General

Hi, setting up KVM VPS right now, but that's boring!

Would there be interest in Windows VPS and if so which version:

2008
2008 R2
2012

Min requirements for 2012 is 512MB RAM, 32GB HDD.

We'd be looking at KVM 512MB RAM 35GB HDD for $7 including license. There will be plans with more RAM too.

Any interest in this? It will be first available in Texas and later LA.

  • @Hassan said: How?

    We need the license for our own stuff.

    @suapbrudda said: Or more ram if we provide our own lic? Win2012

    Possibly.

    It doesn't work with CPU anyway. I tried. I run it on my graphics cards at home though :p

    Doesn't work or doesn't work well? Because I still catch people trying, among other really annoying abuses of KVM on Windows.

    Well people try anything. Oh there are abusers; Windows or not. It doesn't work as in it doesn't generate any useful results. You might get 0.00000000000000000001 BTC. It's not going to be worth the time and effort (and cost of the VPS). You won't get anything close to $7/month back.

  • CPU hashrates are extremely low, dwarfed by even wimpy GPU mining which is soon to be spanked by ASIC miners as they become more available.

  • wroxwrox Member

    Oh yes! 2012.

  • marcmmarcm Member

    @concerto49 - Been there, done that, so enjoy the abuse. We will never again support Windows.

    @marcm and there is abuse on Linux, point being?

    Mind explaining what happened?

    If I would it would be a TL;DR type post that I don't feel like writing and probably no one would feel like reading. In a nutshell there was allot of abuse. If you really have to do this, then just dedicate a node to Windows. I recommend you use KVM over Xen HVM, RAID + BBU and don't allocate all the available cores to every VPS. And don't be shocked when you'll find your customers doing illegal activities and using your VPS servers as a fence, trying to shield themselves from any possible consequences. Best of luck!

  • @marcm said: If you really have to do this, then just dedicate a node to Windows. I recommend you use KVM over Xen HVM, RAID + BBU and don't allocate all the available cores to every VPS.

    We never give all the cores to most VPS plans, especially not 512MB. Always run on RAID + BBU. It's a standard. Definitely KVM.

    @marcm said: And don't be shocked when you'll find your customers doing illegal activities and using your VPS servers as a fence, trying to shield themselves from any possible consequences.

    They do it now - Windows or not - is there a difference?

    @marcm said: In a nutshell there was allot of abuse.

    In a nutshell it happens on Linux too. This isn't $7/2GB land anyway :p -- that's worse.

    @marcm said: Best of luck!

    Thanks. Yeah the full node will be Windows, otherwise it'd be a waste of the license.

    I've just started looking at Windows 2K8 at work, so it'd be nice to have something to mess around with for a month or two without fear of crapping on a critical service. Definitely interested.

    Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.

  • Oh sorry you've got a site windows licence. Then forget my comment about the BYO lic.
    I'd still be interested, you mentioned there would be more RAM available which would be nice.

    Marcm, glad you're sharing your experiences, but not everyone running a win box is a scriptkiddie. Many of us just want a dev box to play with from work/home/anywhere.
    There are plenty of people abusing linux boxes too, just look at the number of people complaining even here about getting their a/c suspended for various activities.

    You monitor, you shutdown/ban those abusing their box.

    Yeah, we've had plenty of people abusing on Linux and I'm sure most hosts do.

    Yes, it's a Windows DC license per CPU. I've double checked and double confirmed it. It's legal. This isn't something dodgy. As said, I need the license for a few other things hence the discounted price.

    There will be plans with more RAM for sure. Up to 4GB at least. It's just outside of LEB price.

    Ok, look I need to run Sharepoint :p

    I think this will be a great selling point. Nice package, Concerto. :)

    I think we do pretty well for this. :)

    I'm all for more competition in the low end Win VPS market. :)

    Thanks.

    I'm not saying you're doing bad. Was simply referring to the possible amount of abuse.

    We don't have autoboot sadly :p

    Does anyone recognize the value in a huge ecosystem? Running app support on a Windows VPS will have benefits, not the best OS, but obviously an opportunity.

    Thanks! Jeff
