Ryzen, Threadripper or Epyc for a VPS hosting?

HannanHannan Member, Host Rep

Hi,

I've seen some discussion around this topic but which do you think?
I do love Ryzen CPU's but the only issue is the RAM limitation.
What do you suggest and what models?
Epyc 7003 Series with 512GB of RAM?

  • The best you can afford basically. Your starting point seems reasonable for a VPS host.
    There's no single, "correct" answer to your query regarding spec, except if you're a service vps host looking at scalability then you need EPYC not Ryzen.

    would you prefer all customers to be left stranded if one EPYC node goes down, or risk shared across 4 much speedier ryzen nodes?

    unless you were planning for multi EPYC nodes from the get-go.

  • Ryzen is better, Ryzen is less oversold due to smallest DRAM.

    I think it is not a good idea run business by home product. Epyc and Xeon.

    It depends if you're targeting consumer or business. And even then, most businesses that don't deal directly with SaaS probably don't even know the difference between Intel and AMD, they just pay one guy to do stuff for them.

    It depends what kind of market you're going for - if you're trying to sell gameservers for example you'll want to be selling and marketing i9s and Ryzen 9s due to the high clock speeds and brand recognition.

    You are right, But I think Xeon / EPYC also has High Frequency option. If DC product can meet you require , Choose DC series first(I suggest)

    So here is the thing, Do you think something like

    Dual EPYC 75F3
    1024GB RAM
    8 x 7.4TB NVMe
    2 x 40Gbps for shared storage
    2 x 25Gbps for Public Net

    Would it work?
    Or going for something smaller?
