BIG DISK OFFERS: $2.4/TB all-in storage VPS and Ryzen 5950X w/big block storage!

Crunchbits.com BIG STORAGE VPS and Ryzen 5950X Specials

We've finally got the additional storage nodes in, and are starting to trickle them out. We expect to bring a new storage node online every 48 hours until we run out of disks. As a penance for being so behind on delivering the replenishment of our much-requested storage VPSes, LET members can enjoy this 20% off coupon: CHOKEMYDISK

In addition, we were busy upgrading our network infrastructure and added additional overall connectivity to each hypervisor. While we were at it, some RAM and HDD space were tossed in to our Ryzen plans to really push them over the edge. These disks are slower than our standard storage plans, but they're perfect if you need to squirrel away a lot of... linux ISOs. To celebrate this, we're also running an extremely-limited 15% off coupon for Ryzens: ONLYTOWEL

Both of these specials are going to run until 1-31-2023

Website: https://crunchbits.com
Looking glass: https://lg-cda.crunchbits.com

P.S. Shirts from the pushup thread are going out today and tomorrow. If you missed out/aren't already getting one from that thread and would like to get one, feel free to reply in here to get one until we run out. You're gonna like the way you look, I guarantee it.

  • Woo hoo.
    @crunchbits Can I sign up monthly and then upgrade to Annual for storage? Will you honor the discount on Annual plan too?

    Discount applies to all term lengths, even with our quarterly/annual having a built-in discount (so you'll end up even lower per TB).

    yeah - i see that, but, just wanna try for a month before a longer commitment... hence was checking if i can switch bill period later?

    Ahh, misread that. Yes, as long as your original order was placed with this coupon you can switch to a longer billing period and keep it. It's a lifetime recurring discount as long as you have this active service with us. I totally understand wanting to try it out for a bit first, make sure we're a good fit.

  • Is smaller HDD plan doable?
    500GB or 1 TB?

    Are you affiliated with IonSwitch somehow? It seems that you both have Coeur d'Alene and Spokane locations.

    No on the smaller sizes. I don't want to get into splitting cores into 0.5 vCpu or anything like that.

    The CDA location is the same data center, but no we are not the same company/hardware. They are great, and I have lots of good things to say about IonSwitch. CDA/Spokane are the same metro so our other locations are in the same city but separate. Rumor has it there is another non-Idaho/WA location coming online Q1, too ;)

    When will you reveal the new location?
    This offer is limited to CDA location or will you add Spokane and new locations later?

    A few are in the works, but the one that is just pending a cage build/power drops is in the SW USA. This is limited to CDA. Our bandwidth and connectivity there is honestly better than our Spokane location.

    Oh.. that definitely wasn't intended :)

    Next step up from 32TB would be 64TB--just didn't think we'd have any demand for that, but it's pretty simple to add.

    The original prices displayed on the order page for the Ryzen servers seem to be wrong. $7, $14 etc. when it should be $8, $16.

    More of a side note: In case you want potential customers to close your web site after a couple of seconds, congrats, your designer did a great job. If however you want potential customers to enjoy or at least be able to easily read your web site you should fire your designer. Lightish grey on darkisch white is hard to read, in particular for people with eyesight problems.

    Otherwise I wish you well and good sales.

    Click dark mode in upper right, and send web designer resume.

    edit: It has been so long since I saw it without, I thought that dark was the default but was just my devices saved preferences :s

    Definitely interested in solid designers though. Have had too many not-so-great experiences in the past that it dropped much lower on my radar.

    Thanks no to both. While your indeed very attractive offer incited some curiosity you are at least 5000 km too far away for my needs. And regarding a web designer resume (from me I presume) I can't; it would be an empty sheet of paper but I do know when I have a hard time reading something.

    Again, no offense intended, my goal was simply to guide your attention to a potential problem.

    None taken, it's useful feedback. Not you necessarily, any reputable designer. We've had issues with stalled/non-delivery of one and another that just needed too much babysitting and could not get on the same page. I saw that recently two really popular designers in this space also started having issues as well.

    As much as we'd love more orders, it's good practice to at least spread it to different locations (within same host) or to some other providers--at least with regards to backup/production.
