edited May 2012 in Offers

One year ago today BlueVM began offering services to people via our site. At that time it was limited to a select few clients who we had private deals with. Since then we've expanded from just one node all the way to having over 1,000 clients at 4 locations nationwide. To celebrate this achievement we are offering our BLUE3 plan for just $1.99 /Mo. for life!

Plan Details:
256 MB of Guaranteed Ram
512 MB of Burstable RAM
2 CPU's (@2.5 Ghz+ Each)
1 IP Address
40 GB of Storage
1 TB of Bandwidth

Visit our site: https://bluevm.com for details.

We currently have stock in Illinois, Kansas (City) and California for the special. This special is a limited time offer and can only be applied to new services.

Illinois Test IP: 216.231.136.2
Kansas Test IP: 204.12.223.2
California Test IP: 173.254.238.53

    limited time until when? btw, interested in offer.

  • BlueVMBlueVM Member

    Sorry, we are running this special from now through the 25th of this month (or until we run out of stock)...

    I have no need for another VPS, let alone one that highly spec'ed... However, I am finding it difficult to say no!

    Happy birthday BlueVM!

    Noticing that as well (same location, but the default Debian 6 template) ... Not as bad as yours though

    (5 runs, lowest and highest scores ignored)

    Thanks!

  • jcalebjcaleb Member

    @BluBoy im getting that same performance but on my previous vps with them. also deb6.

  • antivenantiven Member

    Because I'm too much of a noob to figure out which test to go with, I did all 3. (Also Calif)

    All serial dd-rape does is cause a vicious circle where I/O gets lower and lower and lower....

  • yomeroyomero Member

    @antiven said: which test to go with

    The 3rd

    same feeling, it's hard to say no...

  • BlueVMBlueVM Member

    @imnpc said: I buy the VPS in California ,but the HDD is slowly :(

    The hard drives speed up with activity to save power, thus if no one is using them the DD might be bad... Its a brand new node, thus no usage, thus slower I/O. I did a test and ran 5 in a row on each drive before I put the stock up for those nodes and I was able to get up to 90 MB/s. That being said we're only running raid 1 on the CA node... if you need a faster I/O we can transfer you to a node running raid 10 in Kansas.

    Just ordered a box in Illinois. The disk I/O speed is pretty low, and I'm not a fan of the lxcenter control panel.

    Off to bed now, I'll test it fully tomorrow.

  • camargcamarg Member

    too hard to resist offer :)
    I ordered one in illinois, but it has no internet connectivity. Is there something I must do in hypervm?

    Congrats on one year of service

  • jcalebjcaleb Member

    was too slow to order. out of stock

  • Damn, missed this, expecting anymore stock soon?

  • BlueVMBlueVM Member

    We'll have more stock shortly. We have the servers, just don't want to lower our support quality by expanding too fast.

  • jcalebjcaleb Member

    kindly post when your new stock arrives. thanks!

  • BluBoyBluBoy Member

    @BlueVM said: That being said we're only running raid 1 on the CA node

    Just curious if there are any plans to upgrade / expand the CA nodes at all? The service and support with BlueVM have been great, it is just let down by below average data speeds.

    found new stock at illinois. bought one now.

    Update:
    CPU model : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU L5520 @ 2.27GHz
    Number of cores : 2
    CPU frequency : 2038.801 MHz
    Total amount of ram : 512 MB
    Total amount of swap : 0 MB
    Download speed : (11.2MB/s)
    I/O speed : 56.2MB/s

    I think it's great for my purpose. Webhosting low traffic blogs.

    @jcaleb said: 2.27GHz

    Plan says "2 CPU's (@2.5 Ghz+ Each)"

    Just sayin :p

  • jcalebjcaleb Member

    @Taylor maybe depends on which location. but, im happy with it.

  • BlueVMBlueVM Member

    @Taylor said: Plan says "2 CPU's (@2.5 Ghz+ Each)"

    We try to match the hardware, but if it doesn't match and the client asks for it we'll grant an extra core to make up for the difference.

  • LAKidLAKid Member

    No stock at all..:)

  • TaylorTaylor Member

    @BlueVM

    Are you planning on having anymore stock for this promo?
