Inception Hosting UK KVM NVMe VPS

So i was lucky to get this little demon during BF/CM. Trashed it around alot , mostly benching/crunching numbers and finally testing my stuff for speed/latency.

2 vCPU 1270v6
2GB DDR4 Ram
1 IPv4
/64 IPv6
1.5TB transfer

Selected this VPS due to 2vCPU at 3.80 Ghz, planted in clouvider's very prem UK network.
initially i must say cpu performance is not truly consistent, but it does not affect web tests. it is just unfortunate to have me as a fussy customer but okay just 10 more months left for IH.
Anyway after i PMSed at Anthony he was kind enough to ask the neighbour to cool down, and since I have noticed more consistent optimum benches.

Geekbench single core would still be considered amongst the top in Q1 2019; alas AMD has Ryzen. Nevertheless its not common to have such well performing high clockers for such a low price.

DDR4 ram speed is really commendable.

IOPS is clearly stable, did a 50/50 read/write with 8G file to see whether it fluctuates. most of the time within 15-20K. Did this repeatedly over the course of 2months.
In most cases i think maybe 5K IOPS both ways would be more than sufficient.

IPv6 included for CC refugees consideration.

managing my own ISO installation via SolusVM is a cinch. personally noted that seq tests perform better in ext4 instead of xfs (tested in at least 5 fresh installations).

i think there is promo with double space and more transfer at the moment, you know where to get it. Likely exclusive offer.

i do regret not getting during this period as a lot more fun tests can be done with 30GB NVMe.

oh yeah, FREE Directadmin license too for all UK VPS.

  • hmm ... interesting, it seem i need contact @AnthonySmith to enable cpu passthrough or at least enable aes-ni & rdrand

    yes aes is good for benching :tongue:

  • Anthony's servers are superb. Im using them myself and you cannot have a better stuff for the price in UK location. HostUs is quite close though.
