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.

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!
- 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 http://library.linode.com or http://www.cyberciti.biz
- 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.

Mother of God...
Few names I'd trust to pull it off
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.
Never expected this from Edis!
Nice offer tho. And Edis finally gets Solus and proper ticket system.
I hate you VAT @ 20.00%
Interesting, some beefy hardware to back it up too.
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.
@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 ?
I guess Solus is wrong.
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.
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.
Do you accept payments with credit card without paypal account? ("Checkout as Guest")
Would .18 kernel show buffer/cache? It looks like .32 kernel without swap to me
Can show even swap, i think.
Ok stop guessing, just uname -a and tell us the result.
But that doesn't really mean anything
It's real 2.6.32, not fake.
@Andre now you have us all wondering in which country the time is currently 8:19 am
loaction only at vienna autria any other ?
sssh! stop worrying and start acting like a mindless zombie.
@rds100 09:02 now — GMT+8, take a guess!
@blergh_ yes I can't help myself, I'll go back to zombie mode
My thoughts exactly.
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?
Web serving with a lot of RAM caching?
