    I'm running the one with CentOS 5 (BL460C) on the name.

    let me get that started for u.

    Edit:
    Just kicked off the benchmark so i will reply in a few hours with the link

    Any problem with the iLO or can I ask them to install ESXi 5.5 ?

    I got 5.5 to install direct from the HP-specific image via iLO with no problems. The install was slow, but that's to be expected given that I was using a local ISO.

    notice any issues? driver problems?

    Looks like an OS issue.. wojons markturner

    yeah it really is the case took a machine of mine did the test. not sure if its with this build of centos or if its centos is just slower for some silly reason. I wounder if it has to do with the knerel version since proxmox 3 is based on debian 7 which uses a 3.2 kernel. I know this server has 2 procs and not sure if the 3.x kernels have some perfomance stuff over the 2.6.x kernels when it comes to multi proc i think there was something (http://lwn.net/Articles/518329/) i know this is about 3.6 kerenl but could be related.

  • @wojons @david_p if you have Proxmox installed with v3 kernel - then OpenVZ probably wont work, so you need to revert back to the 2.6 kernel.

    If you have a server thats not yet in production, can you switch kernel back to 2.6 on Proxmox and rerun the test.

    Do you get the same result or does performance plummet? I think the 3.0 kernels yield higher performance

  • jarland said: Given the history, that's a big deal to me, but at some point I have to say...the service is awesome and the support has been incredibly responsive and helpful

    I agree, I still have the atom (bought it just for fun) and the response from their support dpt. is awesome! The dedi itself is quite good, also for it specs. Wish it had some little more BW...

    Does not make any sense that proxomox 3 comes with containers and and a 3.2 kernel but does not support openvz.

  • Proxmox uses pve-kernel-2.6.32-20-pve

    Kernel 3.2 will support KVM, but try firing up a OpenVZ container and it will fail. The kernel does not include the OpenVZ extensions.

  • @jvnadr - Glad to hear support has been good. I think you can add additional bandwidth. Email [email protected] and ask Steve.

  • jarjar Member, Patron Provider

    You guys are just making me antsy to dig into that dedi :P Decided to keep my atom too though, the network on it improved a lot.

  • @jarland how much is atom. how much disk and bw they give? thank you

    $10/m or $5/m if paid annually ($60/year). Comes with 100GB disk and 2TB BW.

  • Din't know you can get a BL460 + ilo with that pricing o.O

    Btw, here's a snapshot of the improvements I've seen on the atom now. I keep seeing the other dedis do better, but I'm positive CPU limitation has something to do with it. Also SAN storage, which is awesome but obviously doesn't burst as well for pretty DD porn. Functions like a beast though.

    CPU model :  Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU  230   @ 1.60GHz
    Number of cores : 2
    CPU frequency :  1597.087 MHz
    Total amount of ram : 1888 MB
    Total amount of swap : 89 MB
    System uptime :   16 days, 13:53,
    Download speed from CacheFly: 50.7MB/s
    Download speed from Coloat, Atlanta GA: 34.0MB/s
    Download speed from Softlayer, Dallas, TX: 16.0MB/s
    Download speed from Linode, Tokyo, JP: 2.65MB/s
    Download speed from i3d.net, Rotterdam, NL: 9.02MB/s
    Download speed from Leaseweb, Haarlem, NL: 7.45MB/s
    Download speed from Softlayer, Singapore: 3.24MB/s
    Download speed from Softlayer, Seattle, WA: 7.04MB/s
    Download speed from Softlayer, San Jose, CA: 6.14MB/s
    Download speed from Softlayer, Washington, DC: 33.2MB/s
    I/O speed :  86.0 MB/s

    Right now, for dedicated hardware in the US, you simply can't come close to competing with this.

    Ruriko - have you got a benchmarking script?
    knopix80 - IPv4 and IPv6 - these offers are in Atlanta
    c0y - $10/month for 500GB, there are 1TB available too. I don't know their pricing - its on their order form though

    I couldn't find a linux version to benchmark video encoding but I found a windows version http://www.techarp.com/showarticle.aspx?artno=520
    I'm happy for other alternatives such as you download a random video encoder tool and use the highest setting available to encode the video

  • FYI Delimiter will announce services in LA and NY next month but due to demand they are going to offer services first to existing customers. The offers will be entirely different, so don't expect any X5150's or Atom servers there but the offers will be aggressive.

  • Anything in Europe planned?

  • LA is good to asia :)

  • @8420PR - They selected Amsterdam and Frankfurt as their choice European locations but have not seen their selection of servers or go live date yet.

    Any update on those Rasberry's?

  • @jeffreywinters - We've had a rack full running about 2 weeks now, just trying to make sure they don't all cook and that airflow is sufficient.

    Once its confirmed then we'll 'productise' it.

    What price did you decide on?

  • @JeffreyWinters - lets wait for the final product and I'll post it. Until we have a formal tariff sheet for the product, prices can get very fluid.

    I'll try to find out more tomorrow

  • jarjar Member, Patron Provider

    Sounds like you guys have some cool plans ahead for delimiter. Whether just semi-official conversation here or not, it's reassuring to know a company has goals and expansion plans. You should get Steve to hang out here some.

  • @Jarland - working on it. I think once revenue starts increasing here then you wont be able to keep him away

    Thanked by 1jar

    None at all, after I got the networking issues taken care of (got a subnet and got it routed).

    Overall, I'm a happy camper.

  • @Thorrak - glad to hear it!

    it seems their network in atlanta have global routing issue again now, this issue has happened several times before, ping test from just-ping.com, 100% Packets lost from Global...
