Waveride (by EDIS) - 4Gb RAM/50G HDD/4 vCPU/2TB Traffic OpenVZ+Solus 5EUR/mo

Waveride is a new low-cost sub division of EDIS, offering low-cost high-power VPSes.

Currently 4 OpenVZ plans are offered, ranging from 4GB RAM and 50GB HDD space (€5 / month), to 8GB RAM and 100GB HDD space (€10 / month). Orders can be placed here.

We use WHMCS and SolusVM, and deployment is fully automated, except for the first order (due to fraud screening). Your VPS is on a SuperMicro Dual E5-2630 (2x Hexacore + HT) node with 160GB RAM and 8 SAS2 drives of either 1 or 2 TB (Seagate Constellation Enterprise) in RAID50 (LSI), on a 1 gigabit connection to our core switch.


dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync
1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 1.59443 s, **673 MB/s**

Nodes are connected to the EDIS backbone, spanning 3 cities (Vienna in Austria, Graz in Austria, and Zurich in Switzerland) with Nx10GE/Nx1GE uplinks/interconnects to VIX (Vienna Internet Exchange), GRAX (Grazer Internet Exchange), ReTN, HE (IPv4 outbound only to avoid HEs inbound congestion), FiberRing (LeaseWeb/OCOM) and private peerings (eg. Swisscom, Akamai, most telcos in ex-Yugoslavia and eastern Europe). Our network is redundant and IPv6-enabled. The physical nodes are located in Vienna, Austria.
Further info on our AS/Network:
Looking glass:

Now you might think there is a catch and yes, there totally is - but not necessarily a problematic one. These plans are entirely unmanaged and unsupported. We monitor the nodes and act on resource abuse or hardware problems, but we do not provide any support for software, routing issues/requests, template requests, control panel installations and so on. SolusVM lets you handle 99,9% of these tasks yourself, and you are expected to do so.
For emergencies, there is the WHMCS ticket system - don't message or call EDIS directly, it will be ignored!

Other things:

  • VPSes are always delivered with Debian 7 x64 as default operating system, reinstall your VPS in SolusVM if you want something different.
  • IPv6 might not work out of the box (on CentOS and similar distributions). If it does not, simply run ip route add ::/0 dev venet0. If this does not work, try ip route add 2000::/3 dev venet0.
  • The initial installation of Debian may be corrupted by SolusVM, and the VPS might not come online. In this case simply reinstall from SolusVM.
  • We do not offer an SLA, uptime guarantee, or refund under any circumstances.
  • Stock is currently limited to 250 VPSes.
  • We don't keep backups, so make your own backups.
  • For setup guides and help with Linux, visit or


  • No pointlessly CPU-intensive applications such as cryptocoin mining or [email protected]
  • Minecraft allowed, but you won't be pleased with the performance. The nodes run on E5 CPUs (which have a lower clockspeed), and use a SAS array. Think twice about running it.
  • DDoS (either inbound or outbound) is not acceptable. IPs are nullrouted for a minimum of 12 hours, and we reserve the right to cancel your account if you get attacked.
  • Torrents and VPNs are acceptable, but we might ask you to stop if you get (too many) DMCA notices.
  • The information you provide during ordering must match PayPal information (name, e-mail address, country, ...).

TL;DR: New EDIS brand, it's great!

Now, here is the LEB plan:

  • 4 GB RAM
  • 50 GB HDD
  • 4 vCPU cores
  • 2 TB traffic
  • 1 IPv4 (no reverse DNS currently, ETA 1 week) / 10 IPv6 (no reverse DNS currently, ETA 2 - 3weeks)
    Payments are accepted via PayPal only.
    Order here:

    You gotta set the bar high for summer hosts. That way we can watch them keep jumping to hit it.

    Suppose i should express my concerns here as well, but meh. At least you are being blunt with what it is, what people should expect etc.

    Enjoy the chargebacks and abuse.

  • LeeLee Member

    Never expected this from Edis!

  • Owaveridezold?

    Nice offer tho. And Edis finally gets Solus and proper ticket system.

    I hate you VAT @ 20.00%

  • lbftlbft Member

    Interesting, some beefy hardware to back it up too.

    @blergh_ said: Enjoy the chargebacks and abuse.

    Why do you say that?

  • @lbft said: Why do you say that?

    Indeed, for some reason which is unexplained for me, abuse and chargebacks happen mostly at 1-2$ a month offers.
    I will never understand why ppl dont get premium VPSes if they do not pay for them anyway. If I were a thief I would not spend someone else's money on cheap hotels, I would go to Vegas, no matter how good the cheap hotels might be for the money.

  • lbftlbft Member

    @William, Solus shows this as 2GB RAM / 4GB burst, whereas the offer pretty clearly just states '4GB'. What's the deal?

  • And is it .18 or .32 kernel ?

  • # free -m
                 total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
    Mem:          4096         14       4081          0          0          8
    -/+ buffers/cache:          5       4090
    Swap:            0 

    I guess Solus is wrong.

    @lbft said: 2GB RAM / 4GB burst

    This means 4GB RAM actually. "Burst" is just a marketing term, don't know who invented it first. The real names are "OOMGUARDPAGES" and "PRIVVMPAGES", which don't sound very well from marketing point of view. But if your PRIVVMPAGES is 4GB, you can use 4GB.

  • lbftlbft Member

    It's still different to the way things are conventionally advertised here.

  • So, this may mean it is .18 kernel ? All evidence so far points that way.

    Would .18 kernel show buffer/cache? It looks like .32 kernel without swap to me

    Anyway, benchmark:

  • @vedran said: Would .18 kernel show buffer/cache?

    Can show even swap, i think.

  • Ok stop guessing, just uname -a and tell us the result.

  • 2.6.32-042stab076.5 #1 SMP Mon Mar 18 20:41:34 MSK 2013 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    But that doesn't really mean anything

  • @vedran said: 2.6.32-042stab076.5

    It's real 2.6.32, not fake.

  • AndreAndre Member

    @rds100 09:02 now — GMT+8, take a guess!
    @blergh_ yes I can't help myself, I'll go back to zombie mode

  • @vedran said: I hate you VAT @ 20.00%

    My thoughts exactly.

  • @vedran said: I hate you VAT @ 20.00%

    Come to Romania, we have 24% :)

  • My question is, what could people do with such a VPS that has huge RAM but not enough CPU power?

  • @zhuanyi said: what could people do with such a VPS that has huge RAM but not enough CPU power?

    Web serving with a lot of RAM caching?
