    • Sweet! Thanks for that one Serverian. Maybe add locations? I mean something like "Locations: 6" (amount of them, no need to list all locations).

      Ein Hoffnungsschimmer, den es nie hätte geben sollen.

    • ipv6 is beta in vultr also i think.

    • Vultr is getting better days by days, more features are coming as their words. Still have credits with them and so far so good.

      and i hope that asap can have one DC at singapore too
      :D

    • AnthonySmithAnthonySmith Top Provider

      yep IPv6 is beta on vultr, I have used both, vultr seems more responsive

    • I have vps from both providers.

      @serverian can you add start offer also?
      DO 5$ 512MB Ram
      VULTR 5$ 768MB Ram

    • So, DO killer indeed?

      As long as DO is free or almost, will use that, though :)

      It's Turkey sucks for not even having a DO or Vultr DC in it.

      IWStack is a different product. It aims to be intermediary between our 100% corporate clouds with vmware and rhev and the VPS for the masses stuff. I mean, have similar features (sure, wont have anything that kvm does not support and no management) but a "worker class" price. It is not simply a drop-in replacement for a VPS with hourly billing and API+some customization. We believe power users should have full access at the UI, but we are not there yet. In the meantime, a basic interface for control is ready, as soon as i return from vacation will write a few tutorials and launch it, so people used with a regular VPS wont keep messing with the UI.

      The only reason i even consider digitalocean instead of vultr right now is the private network.

    • I think vultr will be better if they manage to open a Singapore Datacentre

    • vultr is better right now, they have more locations already.

      What is that? Control for some orchestrator using API?

      It's not a private network within your only vpses but public network inside their datacenter. Basically "private" is just another marketing the same as "cloud"

      Please don't cry.

    • @Maounique said:

      This is an example panel we mocked up in about an hour using the API that we allow our clients access to. We're going to go public with the mackup panel as a simpler method for users to administrate their services, as we will be building our advanced features on top of our own API.

      " If the API you create isn't good enough for you to use, why should you expect your clients to use it? " That's the current rationale behind the project. It allows us to see " Well, the API is missing this feature.. " and actively develop that into the API as we go forward, making the API the most central part of the entire system.

      Still much better than going through public route anyway. Not to mention free bandwidth between the box

    • One of the big things Digi has over Vultr right now is the community - the discussions/tutorials on DO are pretty awesome. It's got a much longer head start though obviously.

      yes I know what kind of private network they offer and it's good enough for me, as far as I know vultr doesn't offer any

    • I think vultr is good they have 12 location also there NL location is giving full gigabit which was 100mbit previously speed.

      Nice comparison @serverian - We support SSH keys via startup scripts. Application templates are theoretically possible via startup scripts and we will make some available for popular applications.

      Regarding IPv6 support:

      1) on DO only "grandfathered" users get to participate in Beta (which means early adopter users of DO who signed up during some period back when they were just starting, and it's not possible to join the Beta for anyone else); IPv6 Beta available only in Singapore; and finally, each droplet gets just one IPv6 address with no way to get more.

      2) don't know much details about Vultr's beta, but from what I read a /64 subnet can be requested, which is already worlds better than DO; also seems like anyone can request to join the beta-testing.

    • DH22DH22 Member

      I have had issues at several of Vultr's locations where DO has always been reliable for me. CPU is better at Vultr and ability to have additional IPs is nice (or more accurately its stupid for DO not to support this). But I had too many network/stability problems with Vultr that I have almost completely stopped using them. To be fair I am not using DO that much either due to not supporting additional IPs but otherwise DO has been great for me.

    • DaveADaveA Member

      @DH22 - Sorry to hear you had problems. We are not getting this sort of feedback from other users. I'm sure you've opened support tickets but could you PM me a ticket # so I can personally look into it. Thanks!

      You did reply once to a recent ticket regarding frequent server/network hiccups in the UK. I can PM the ticket # to you. At a couple of your other locations it felt like Vultr was either getting DDOSed or servers were overloaded occasionally with latency spiking up very high.

      Since the majority of my servers are game servers, these issues probably impact me a lot more than most on LET. For purposes that don't require extremely stable performance you do get more for your money on Vultr than DO.

      (The server for this game uses very little CPU or RAM and runs great on DO 512MB and with many other VPS companies.)

      I've found Vultr to be great. I'm still using my initial $5 credit which was doubled to $10 because I only require the services for very short amounts of time (a few hours) to run Windows. CPU is very fast and network is also very speedy, often reaching over 500Mb/s transferring files at the London location. (Haven't tried other locations)

      @DaveA I have had a great experience with vultr so far with using it to nest one of the LES nodes, the IPv6 works great (although some geo-ip issues have been reported) the only thing that may force me to move to Linode is the lack of support for advance buying of bandwidth with a rather high fee p/GB after the allowance.

      Of course I have accounted for this in the project the best I can but the lack of ability to buy extra ad-hoc resource is a bit of a let down and the bandwidth is VERY disproportionate when upgrading packages i.e. the $70 p/month package only gets 100GB extra bandwidth despite paying 100% more.

      Maounique said: IWStack is a different product

      Well, despite the fact that you only offer one location (witch I' fine with it as I live in Europe), I think that IWstack has all the features that DO and Vultr give to users plus a lot of more plus an unbeatable price and pricing model IMHO. So, why IWstach is not a DO and Vultr killer? What can Do or Vultr can do that IWstack cannot (except locations)? As of performance, I compared in production sites and in streaming a do instance with an iwstack instance, I found no difference (both behaved fine). As of the UI, if you play with it a bit, you will find that it is no problem at all although it is not simple.
