[LEB] Rather have OpenStack (Xen PV/HVM) or SolusVM (Xen PV/KVM) for your monthly VPS?
edited November 2012 in General
I am planning on launching a big LEB hos in about a year but was wondering: what do you like the most?
Price would be the same of whatever will be decided.
OpenStack is new exciting fresh technology with nice interface etc.
It's free, self-healing and has resources in the cloud.
Might use it so people can create and delete their own VM's but have a resource cap.
Or should I just stick to the simple SolusVM and don't use things like NAS.
@soluslabs you might want to give me a few reasons why to pay $450/mo for SolusVM instead of OpenStack
I don't really care, as long as it works well. What I care about more is; will be unique about your host that will make you the "big LEB" host you want?
Well, if I utilized OpenStack as a self-managed (user scope) and self healing (server scope) for really cheap and decent support and if we own our own equipment, than what stops you!
I am going to sell it for $5-10/GB RAM and colo rack at burst.net
I am currently looking if I could make some decent profit from hourly billing.
Where are those numbers coming from?
45 servers in a rack, licensed as slaves
I've never used OpenStack. I guess if it's nicer than SolusVM then I'd prefer it.
SolusVM do discounts for that many slaves.
SolusVM for entire rack can't be too expensive :P
A few hundred $ more or less for ~720GB RAM doesn't really matter.
