Review: LFCVPS Montreal Location Review (LFC-256-Can Plan)
I thought that after about 3 weeks I would do a review on my LFCVPS hosted in Montreal, Quebec, Canada (at the highly regarded Netelligent data center.)
I bought this VPS back when they were offering some amazing coupons, so it is the LFC-256 Plan with doubled RAM & Bandwidth, giving me roughly the 512MB plan. I also have this same plan in their Denver, Colorado, USA location.
In this location, VPS are offered with 100mbit port speed (instead of gigabit in Denver), otherwise everything else is pretty similar. Automated backups, Automated RDNS, Native IPV6, E5 processors and incredible disk performance ;0
Here is the output of bench.sh that is somewhat popular for reviews:
CPU model : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2620 0 @ 2.00GHz
Number of cores : 4
CPU frequency : 1999.999 MHz
Total amount of ram : 487 MB
Total amount of swap : 511 MB
Download speed from CacheFly: 11.3MB/s
Download speed from Linode, Atlanta GA: 8.86MB/s
Download speed from Linode, Dallas, TX: 8.04MB/s
Download speed from Linode, Tokyo, JP: 5.24MB/s
Download speed from Linode, London, UK: 6.43MB/s
Download speed from LeaseWeb, Haarlem, NL: 8.13MB/s
Download speed from Softlayer, Singapore: 3.29MB/s
Download speed from Softlayer, Seattle, WA: 4.89MB/s
Download speed from Softlayer, San Jose, CA: 2.36MB/s
Download speed from Softlayer, Washington, DC: 11.1MB/s
I/O speed : 339 MB/s
Currently running Oracle Linux w/ Oracle's custom kernel (Yes, LFCVPS supports pygrub for custom kernels, woot!) and am very happy with this VPS.
You can see their plans here: http://www.lfcvps.com , I don't think they offer any discounts at the moment other than a yearly 15% off (I could be wrong on this.)
it's very good
Maybe 1 year from now, 300mb/s will become IO norm, and people will submit ticket if below this
I hope LFCVPS will post offers again. Their last thread post got derailed too much
nop. more better random r/w... hopefully a better bench will come into play
I stand corrected. That makes more sense
As I stand here in horror trying to figure out how I'll ever get that high of an I/O on a loaded node.
@halfeatenpie ssd or sas or 8 sata in raid10?
Infamous DD test is just a part of the story about disk performance. Everything >10 is fine and >50 is good. Iops are much important as a benchmark. I still don't get why so many ppl think it's important to benchmark a sequential write of a 1 gb file into the cache of the disk controller.
ioping is a better bench.
