There are no specific use restrictions however you should purchase this with the primary use being storage which is why all packages come with 1 CPU core maximum, this is also a confirmation field on the order form.

    Is it possible to upgrade an existing plan to a larger plan later on, without losing the data on disk?

    Yep, just boot in to gparted or w/e/ and expand your partition.

  • These look really nice. Very tempted to give one a whirl.

  • Could you explain the whole thing about "the primary use being storage which is why all packages come with 1 CPU core maximum" ??

    If I order a plan with a dedicated core then that's what I'm limited to, so what does it matter what I use the VPS for? Or is it more of a disk I/O thing?

    My guess would be "pls don't transcode 24/7" or similar.

    But since it's a dedicated core, what does it matter if I use it 0% or 100%?

    0.5 of a core

    Not sure on the semantics tbh but if you need more power then pay more money.

  • Assuming I chose a plan with a full dedicated core.

    I just don't understand the cautionary statement, seeing how it's dedicated resources...

    I don't know tbh, the normal VPS plans with dedicated cores are more expensive than the storage plans are.

    I assume (I'm guessing) that the provider expects/hopes that storage customers will use less resources.

    Only @AnthonySmith can give the definative answer :p

  • Yeah, maybe he just means "The most you will get is 1 dedicated core, so it's more suited for storage than high-CPU usage websites"

    Maybe I'm just over-analyzing it. But it's the first time I've seen a VPS with a dedicated core, and a provider expecting a certain usage from it. I thought the whole point of getting a dedicated core is that you can do what you want, and not impact other users on the node. :smile:

  • @blackbird, what I got from @AnthonySmith when I asked him in a ticket a while ago was this:

    The statement/understanding is there so as to avoid any unrealistic expectations people may have, it is all to common to see public complaints from users about slow storage from other companies selling 'storage' packages and then people go and install WHM/cPanel on them or something else very disk IOPS bound.

    Thanked by 1blackbird
  • Thanks for that. Makes sense. I could see people (especially on LET) doing a "Why isn't my HDD storage VPS performing as fast as my NVME 4-CPU VPS?" :neutral:

    Yes it really means keep in mind this is raid 5 spinning disk storage, intended for storage not app stack performance

    Hmm. Since when do offer threads not auto-sink anymore?

    (Not specific to this thread, to be clear. I see other offer threads getting bumped too.)

  • AnthonySmithAnthonySmith Member, Patron Provider

    It was broken during BF/CM and it seemed to not cause any major upset so it was left broken I believe.

  • joepie91joepie91 Member, Patron Provider

    Typical :)
