  • Sweet! Thanks for that one Serverian. Maybe add locations? I mean something like "Locations: 6" (amount of them, no need to list all locations).

    Ein Hoffnungsschimmer, den es nie hätte geben sollen.

  • ipv6 is beta in vultr also i think.

  • Vultr is getting better days by days, more features are coming as their words. Still have credits with them and so far so good.

    and i hope that asap can have one DC at singapore too
    :D

  • yep IPv6 is beta on vultr, I have used both, vultr seems more responsive

    I am no longer active here, find me at https://talk.lowendspirit.com

  • I have vps from both providers.

    @serverian can you add start offer also?
    DO 5$ 512MB Ram
    VULTR 5$ 768MB Ram

  • So, DO killer indeed?

    As long as DO is free or almost, will use that, though :)

  • You might want to mention that Vultr's API is nowhere near as good as DigitalOcean's. Otherwise, awesome job! Thanks for this ^.^

    It's Turkey sucks for not even having a DO or Vultr DC in it.

    IWStack is a different product. It aims to be intermediary between our 100% corporate clouds with vmware and rhev and the VPS for the masses stuff. I mean, have similar features (sure, wont have anything that kvm does not support and no management) but a "worker class" price. It is not simply a drop-in replacement for a VPS with hourly billing and API+some customization. We believe power users should have full access at the UI, but we are not there yet. In the meantime, a basic interface for control is ready, as soon as i return from vacation will write a few tutorials and launch it, so people used with a regular VPS wont keep messing with the UI.

    I currently use DO, but they don't support vnc console, does Vultr support vnc console?

    The only reason i even consider digitalocean instead of vultr right now is the private network.

  • I think vultr will be better if they manage to open a Singapore Datacentre

  • vultr is better right now, they have more locations already.

    What is that? Control for some orchestrator using API?

    It's not a private network within your only vpses but public network inside their datacenter. Basically "private" is just another marketing the same as "cloud"

    Here lies @alexvolk, the member that was questioning shady hosts. Looks like he is banned now? Enjoy it now, more scam - more entertainment! May we meet again!

  • @Maounique said:

    This is an example panel we mocked up in about an hour using the API that we allow our clients access to. We're going to go public with the mackup panel as a simpler method for users to administrate their services, as we will be building our advanced features on top of our own API.

    " If the API you create isn't good enough for you to use, why should you expect your clients to use it? " That's the current rationale behind the project. It allows us to see " Well, the API is missing this feature.. " and actively develop that into the API as we go forward, making the API the most central part of the entire system.

    Still much better than going through public route anyway. Not to mention free bandwidth between the box

  • One of the big things Digi has over Vultr right now is the community - the discussions/tutorials on DO are pretty awesome. It's got a much longer head start though obviously.

  • @alexvolk

    yes I know what kind of private network they offer and it's good enough for me, as far as I know vultr doesn't offer any

  • I think vultr is good they have 12 location also there NL location is giving full gigabit which was 100mbit previously speed.

  • Add comparison of their ToS/AUP, that would be useful as well.
