    I am running one of those vServer Black Friday 2021 SSD - stable, no complains, didn't notice any problems :) Support (despite being German company and only GER website [Solus is English]) speaks English. However I only tested support in billing related problems - I've made a bank transfer with wrong (older invoice number) title and they returned that (Germans! :P) - they had no problems when my payment (with correct title/invoice number) arrived a week later.

    There is no pre-paid option or wallet and you don't seems to be getting invoice in advance - just they day it should be and then you have (in theory) a week to pay that [I think there is some online payment, I don't use it due to conversion rates].

    However I am cheap bastard and despite this working like a charm I will try to snipe something faster/newer CPU this Black Friday (-:

    Reading those - I guess there is no reason to buy vServer Black Friday 2021 SSD - just get vServer Winterspecial 2021 SSD Maxi is double the cores for the same price (okey, one is 3 months billing, second one is 6 months... but both are 12 months commitment). I was duped :(

    Great service, been using them for two years now and have no complaints whatsoever. Last year I was curious about how effective their ddos protection is and at some point few months ago I experienced few random attacks which were mitigated successfully. The basic ddos protection does take some seconds to kick in and you need to pay a bit extra if you wish it to be permanent (somewhat similar to OVH VAC) but in my case it worked great although I'd wish to kick in a bit faster, other than that performance and uptime have been amazing which is something that most of us look for. Did I mention the extremely affordable price?

    With our VPS products we dont offer officially nested-virt. Its a "regular routed" /64-IPv6.

    I'm not going to buy one of these, but I was considering you guys for later when I need to expand...

    When you say you don't offer it officially, does that mean you can do it but have to support it yourself, you don't permit it or it doesn't work?

    I always prefer to run my haproxy in a separate VM to my webapp when possible and then wireguard in the host.

    Currently it is enabled by default, this may change in the future. However, our normal products will continue to have nested-virtualization included for free in the future.

    I find this very questionable practice while other providers are cancelling discounted products or raising prices :wink:

    My vps is stable and network is fast so maybe I'm gonna one more server from them because these great offers

    Try some netcup servers if tou wanna feel some questionability in billong practices. Those collectors will make your day.

  • Another solid ringer for php-friends. I have a vServer Sommerspecial 2019 G2 with them since early 2019 and it's probably the second longer Server I've had in a while. It's so solid, that I often forget I have bills from them or that I even have it since it's a node of a k8 cluster. Set it and forget.

  • @PHP_Friends Is it not possible to have an English version of the site/billing system? I know G translate, but, it will be easy for new customers.

  • @PHP_Friends you have direct peering with DTAG/AS3320, don’t you?

  • The /64 is not routed, you need to proxy ndp if you need it :(

  • i have terminated this package:

    Promo from PHP-Friends!
    
    2 vCores with Nested Vir (Intel Xeon Gold 6140 / 6240)
    8GB RAM DDR4 ECC
    80GB NVMe RAID10
    1GBit bandwidth
    20TB traffic
    1x IPv4 + /64 IPv6
    SolusVM panel with German + English
    5,12 €/mo with 19% VAT. Minimum term 12 months.
    

    if someone is interested in this server, please contact me. would then clarify whether it could be taken over and if so, on what terms.

    It would be 8 dedicated vcores (threads), meaning 4 actual cores.

    It would be 8 dedicated vcores (threads), meaning 4 actual cores.

    Its 8 vCores.
    Not 4 actual cores, neither 8 dedicated threads from cores.

    Its virtualised, host kernel dynamically assigns tasks from these vCores to threads.

    Because of that it can sit on 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 actual cores.

    More vcores / more overselling = higher chances that tasks will be assigned to second thread on same physical core = worse scaling.
    With just 2 vCPU you have 2x scaling pretty much always.

    PHP-friends doesnt oversell that much so you have way better scaling (so these 8 vcores can be comparable to some other provider with 12 or even 16 vcores), Im using them for long time and scaling is always almost perfect - in my case 4 vcores are assigned to 4 different actual cores.

    Adding to discussion - Biggest benefit of such "dedicated core" offers is not even pure CPU power. Huge benefit is that they have WAY less clients on one physical server. That means that everything is faster and less limited, including RAM speed, CPU cache can actually store your data instead of getting pegged by instructions from 300 VPSes at once - Geekbench wont show it that clearly, but databases such as Redis will perform way nicer.

    PHP-Friends says that it's dedicated.

    Its virtualised, host kernel dynamically assigns tasks from these vCores to threads.

    This really depends on how the host configures their VMs. Hosts can use processor affinity ("CPU pinning") to make particular VPSes always run on particular cores, which is generally recommended for VMs with "dedicated cores" as it significantly reduces context switching resulting in improved performance for all VMs on the machine (especially if all VMs use processor affinity).
