  • Nice offer.

  • Nice, do you have a speed test file for us to check out the download speed ?

  • Very nice, I may just try one :)

  • Can anyone comment on the performance of this offer? I'm interested, just doing a tad bit of research first. =]

    Their 2GB OpenVZ is on LEB, you can find performance tests there.

    Edit: I just saw it's Birmingham, disregard what I said

  • This is some efficient routing: http://pastebin.com/NyZDNDtm

  • Hmm, just told myself no more falling for these VPS gimmicks but I think I'll get one anyway :3

  • ordered kvm one and submitted ticket to enable virtio. waiting for the response.
    btw in KVM, do we need to install the OS while connected via vnc?

  • InfinityInfinity Member, Host Rep

    Nope, you see it all, even the installation process. You have to manually install it unless you have some kinda autoinstall ISO.

  • @dmmcintyre3

    From the inside out to the first reachable hop to you I get a way different story. 12 hops @ 60ms.

    http://pastebin.com/zhSYdvtn

  • Hi Brandon, Do I have to open a ticket always before reinstall OS to request Virtio drivers to be enabled? or it will be enabled once and for all?

  • tuxtux Member

    This offer sounds good but it is in wrong location. Ping times is about 170 ms.

  • @sidahmed

    I have always set virtio prior to installing the OS. That way the drives get detected the proper way instead of the sad, slow /dev/hda.

  • Not a bad route from UK Either

    http://pastie.org/2685735

  • 19 hops / 140ms ping from germany. Doesn't seem too bad either.
    http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=pqW2Mhw9

  • @Brandon_eNetSouth I get 10-12ms from my Hostigation KVM in Rock Hill, SC to the test IP, and sub 21-35ms pings to that VPS from home. I should be getting 40ms max if the routing was decent. (I'm in North Carolina)

  • I wonder why it is such a train wreck from your place in NC to here? Hitting it from servers we have across the US the times/hops are respectable.

  • Brandon_eNetSouth said: I wonder why it is such a train wreck from your place in NC to here? Hitting it from servers we have across the US the times/hops are respectable.

    It's only 17 hops/70 ms..

  • Brandon_eNetSouth said: Limitations:

    Again, add another payment methods! I wish I could get a fake PP accoutn and load it with money in order to get the VPS!

  • justinb said: It's only 17 hops/70 ms..

    I'm in NC as well and can ping the west coast (San Jose & Fremont) from here with ~70-80ms, so it's not only 70ms...

    For me though my routes go straight to Atlanta then to Burmingham as opposed to Atlanta -> Ashburn -> Washington DC -> Atlanta -> Burmingham... The issue seems to be with TATA Communications routes...

    that's one of the better network tests. Uploads are even slower. No rdns support, but decent hardware and great uptime.

    A great deal for KVM and super I/O.

    Paid and received VPS within seconds. :)

  • My kvm is offline few ours,when is online??

  • My KVM is too offline for more than 8+ hours. No response to the ticket yet.

    my KVM is also offline (6+ hours)=.=

    not very impressed with the uptime so far haha

  • Oh, I was going to ask if anyone else's kvm is down. So I take it that it's been down for 12 hrs now?

  • My OpenVZ is down too, so it's not just KVM.

  • ctronchonictronchoni Member
