      PRICES IN THREAD OR EAT SHIT AND DIE

    • Is the pricing recurring? Also does it apply to future uprgades?

      The pricing is recurring for as long as you keep the server -- It will not apply toward future upgrades.

      @NickMNXio - Care to explain when you say 50% off for the life of the server!

      Also some location / DC details would be nice... CHI I guess ?

      These prices will be going away after BF.. but if you spin up a server under these pricing terms, it will remain at these prices every month.

      Also some location / DC details would be nice... CHI I guess ?

      Yes, Mt Prospect IL USA (Chi region).

    • Signed up to take a spin.

      My notes so far:

      Cons

      • Only Stripe, no PP. I understand why but still.
      • No snapshots? I was surprised, considering they use SmartOS which (to my knowledge) is supposed to make it really easy to get snapshots with that zfs.

      Pros

      • The 768MB VM came with 1GB of swap. From my experience with other hosts, that's generous for such a small VM and means that they're confident about their disks performance.
      • time yum update for 424 actions (including that awfully slow microcode update)-> real 4m10.110s, user 2m51.786s, sys 0m44.845s - pretty decent for the specs/price
      • Network + disk (not /dev/null): ~13MB/s from WSI, ~13.5MB/s from Hetzner & OVH, ~30MB/s from Linode Dallas, ~18MB/s from DO NYC1

      Conclusion

      If it had snapshots and with the BF pricing, it would definitely make sense for me to replace my usage of Wable (snapshots) and Scaleway (vfm).

    • Argh, I stopped when I found that they do not have PayPal. Too bad.

      Thanks for the feedback all. FYI Snapshots and PP are planned..

    • Signed up because I figured I could play with Solaris again for $2.50/mo, and with full control of my reverse ptr, well- I'm hooked already.

      I won't be back until @bsdguy is released.

    • I was sitting on the fence about getting a lower-to-second lower FreeBSD 10 box because I absolutely love the responsiveness of this, and the incredibly simple management, but it looks like they're back to normal prices. It's not even 9 pacific yet! Darn it!

      Dollar cost average, and it's still a steal :)

    • Thanks, Nick-

      Well, I was thinking of FBSD mostly as a toy now that I've decided that I can live in the SmartOS container restrictions. Other than SMF sucking my soul dry- I.. I like this. It (mostly) does what I want it to! Of course, now I wish had grabbed a Beastie toy before making dinner!

    • Do you offer any whitelabeling? I've been touting your services to folks who have been around since ASN were 4 numbers, and wouldn't mind getting a cheaper fix for my own needs. :D

      Is IPv6 available?

      I asked this same question on the support community a couple days ago. It was the first and only post.

      IPv6 is not currently available.. it is an active development item, and will be available soon.
