Prometeus to offload VPS business to Eastern Europe

Hello !

There is something going on for some time at Prometeus. I was always afraid this will come as it was Uncle's fear that sooner or later the low end VPS business will start harming the main corporate one.
After some recent DDoSes, a raid failure and the attempts to deliver a real IaaS cloud kept failing, he decided he lost enough time for this and while it is not making a loss, but a tiny profit, he decided to offload it to someone which will take good care of the current customers and even expand with more services that were requested in the past.
So, my company received a very generous donation in servers and equipment, also Salvatore offered to help with the whole move and setup as a courtesy to the customers that trust and love him
I also promise will take good care of everyone, and I hope I can even improve with DDoS protected servers and special support for Tor Exit nodes.
The current used IP base will be also donated and relocated to Romania.
There are many questions, I am sure, so put up hastily some page which is work in progress, but will try to answer these thigs, in About Us and FAQ sections, as well as in ToS/AUP
I repeat, this does not mean IP change, only route change, the same hardware will go, the move will happen gradually, etc.
Please visit our site here:

Suggestions welcome !
Thanks for your continuous support !

    Well @Maounique, look forward to seeing how this will grow!

    @prometeus, thanks for doing everything! This is definitely a great donation.

    Although @Maounique, BallsVPS?

    Well, it will probably not stay like that, but wanted to show I am not afraid of raids and will stay firm for the freedom of speech and the right to privacy right up to the limit of the law.
    Biz line will move also but will be on dedicated L3 only link. Perhaps some larger customers can request to stay with prometeus, but his regular business is not cheap at all.

    Thanks to you. Really I worked hard so far, but it's getting worse and worse for me, so it's time to leave :-(

    lol :) Italy is one hour behind Romania, correct? :) @prometeus you should wait one hour before you post in this thread! :P

  • @jarland said: Must be april 1 there

    It actually is, but I doubt it's a joke. Or is it?

  • Ah, it is indeed 1st of april, but this does not happen suddenly, the move will take weeks and and also Salvatore talked about this for months before.

  • IshaqIshaq Member

    It's a joke I bet.

  • netomxnetomx Member, Moderator

    My VPS has now a Romanian IP, seamless transaction. How did you managed to transfer the uptime to the new VPS?

    So your serious, and this is not an April fools joke?

  • @compuguy said: So your serious

    Look at his face. He's deadly serious!

  • April 1st joke ;-)

    It seems ppl have a hard time believing us :(
    Same happened with the overzold offer, just look at the thread...:
    http://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/8874/overzold-a-true-low-end-box-with-5gb-of-ram-to-celebrate-the-arrival-of-spring/p1

    Regarding uptime, we will try to live migrate.
    The IPs will be the same, just geo data about them.
    Will have BGP session with the DC for IPv4 and tunneled IPv6 (they still dont support it :(
    Once again, this will not mean loading the servers in a truck and hauling them, it will happen gradually, some servers installed, VMs migrated, the freed servers shipped, migrations again of more VMs...
    Downtime will be minimal generated only because of the routing changing.

    Huh? It's perfect time for SUCH announcements (in Romania)!

  • AmitzAmitz Member

    Well, put simply: This is either a joke or I am really, really pissed off. So please let it be a joke, guys.

    OK ill play the aprils fools game. :D

    @Maounique when will this be efective? i see the same traceroute for my VPSs.

    And yes if its true i wouldnt like it 1 bit.

  • @Spirit said: Huh? It's perfect time for SUCH announcements (in Romania)!

    And now also In italy, so Salvatore can confirm it officially now!

  • As I said, wont happen overnight.
    Also, downtime will be minimal.
    Also, the hardware will be the same, more or less.
    The only big problem will be the tunneling of ipv6, the DC promised will offer it from lastr summer :(

    Just confirmed with Uncle Sal (@prometeus) that our VM will be moved within 2 weeks.
    I hope it will be also possible to move Rage4 DNS main server from Milan to Romania

  • AmitzAmitz Member

    I am really concerned now and indeed hope that it is just a joke.
