500GB storage + 512MB RAM for 20$!

1 vCPU
500GB HDD (1TB +10$)
Linux OS (Windows +10$)
4TB Traffic @ 100Mbit
1 IPv4 (IPv6? no idea)
Piscataway, NJ (Choopa DC)


Sounds unbelieveable... any expiriences? Seems to be Xen. HDD might be a single, dedicated, disk and no RAID.

    If it is reliable provider, I'd buy a few of these, no matter where they are located. But it sounds unreasonable, 500gb for 20$. Maybe over-used old single drives.. But if it is in raid array, I really find it concerning.

    Ability to customize the kernel

    Considering choopa had a 8Tb dedicated server deal for about $60 a month and about $100 setup, I would say it sounds believable to me.

  • @Zen said: Main reason I need EU is so I can encode my videos and stream them to me without any risk of lag (USA tends to be slightly problematic)

    Choopa has great EU BW, i have one of their 8TB specials and do 12MB/s since today night to get my backups from them to my home PC.
    So i guess this won't be an issue.

  • I think it's a single dedicated drive too. Is this an established provider?

  • @fan said: I think it's a single dedicated drive too. Is this an established provider?

    They are owned by Choopa, so yea.

    Now this is what i like :)
    Even if io is bad, it will not matter as the network is slow enough and i think these will be mostly for backup, anyway.

  • How about the Hostslim previous offer? :D

  • Similar to Kimsufi? :L

  • @eastonch said: Similar to Kimsufi? :L

    You get a dedi, more RAM and more storage with Kimsufi :)

  • For the guys on the West Coast, we picked up a storage node from BuyVM for all misc data this week: 512mb / 500GB storage / 15.00 per month

    Not seeing what's the big deal over a Kimsufi.

  • I swear this was going to be EDIS and I was going to explode. :X

  • @rm_ look at the prices; they're crazy for what you're getting (especially HDD space with the 2G however it's usually a crappy old/slow drive good enough for backups). However I now swear never to go near OVH again.

  • I live right next to piscataway. I'm really close to choopa,, atlanticmetro and all the dc's in NYC. seems that I made a good choice :)

    Don't explain me what Kimsufi is, I know them and already have one, thanks.
    I was asking why people think "500GB storage + 512MB RAM for 20$!" in this thread is such a big deal to even put an exclamation mark there; that I don't see any advantages this offer has over a Kimsufi 2G.

    Why would you buy this and not a kimsufi with 2GB ram and 1TB storage?

    Let's see - ECC RAM?
    Besides everybody and his mother already has a kimsufi. Diversity is a good thing.

    • Network, Location
    • Hardware independency
    • Easy up- and downgradeable
  • Still, with a dedicated server you're not sharing anything, which is why I stepped away from VPS a couple of months a go.

    Location is the only really valid point I see, the others are valid as well but are just not very great selling points.
