  • Those servers perform very well, by the way. I have one in Milano. Prometeus are good people.

  • They are old and good. period.

    Very nice IOPS results. Perhaps a bit on the pricey side without the discount.

  • I received a mailer today that their TeraKVM series (shared cores with dual ssd+hdd block devices ) are also now available in NL.

    Best value( per resource) seems to be

    TERAKVM-1000 @ €9.0 / Month (2 vCPU, 4GB RAM, 100GB SSD, 1000GB HDD)
