Merry Christmas from BuyVM! More features from Franta Claus!

Hello {$firstname},

We wanted to start by wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas, A Happy Holidays, and a prosperous New Years!

2022 has been an overall good year for BuyVM and we wanted to share some of the upcoming changes & improvements for 2023 – at no additional cost or price hike!

We’ve bumped our global network capacity by 500%!

The 2nd half of this year was us focusing on network upgrades by increasing our global network capacity by ~500%. This has helped us address congestion issues we had in Las Vegas & New York.

Burstable 10Gbit for all qualifying services!

As an added bonus, If you’re a premier user, or your service has been active for at least 90 days, you’ll now qualify for a network connectivity upgrade from 1Gbit -> 10Gbit burstable. This upgrade happens automatically without a reboot or support ticket. Neat.

Route smaller blocks via BGP, on-the-fly change your outbound route!

We’re working to interlink our locations, allowing users to be able to announce a /24 (for instance) over BGP, and then announce smaller blocks (even a single IP) in another BuyVM location, and it will interlink/cross over. Perfect for VPN companies that want a smaller block in each DC!

You’ll soon be able to control what ISP (basically Cogent or HE) your VPS takes for outbound traffic, on the fly. This will be done via a setting in Stallion, or by setting DSCP with your firewall.

Private LAN’s that span the world!

You’ll soon be able to create as many private LAN’s as you want, and connect as many as you want to a single instance. Want only 2 of your VM’s to have a specific private LAN? No problem. Want a big ‘head end’ node that’s plugged into ALL of your private LAN’s, so you can use it as a router/VPN entry point? Go for it.

Private LAN’s will soon span the globe, meaning a VM in Las Vegas can talk over its private LAN to a VM in Luxembourg. No longer do you need to use TINC or a mesh of Wireguard’s.

CPU upgrades from AMD Ryzen 3900X to AMD Ryzen 5900X!

Earlier this year we deployed some Ryzen 5900X based nodes, and they’re awesome. So awesome we’ve decided we’re going ahead with upgrading all nodes from 3900X -> 5900X over the coming year! We’ll start with Vegas and head east from there.

As always, we thank you for your patronage.

From our family to yours,


Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
