    I wouldn't know but personal feel is that the node is relatively empty.

  • @cybertech - thanks for doing the needful to test a bit.

    May I ask what are the terms of your engagement - that is, will you have some time for monitoring over a longer period and so forth?

    I'm given a month to test it out :astonished:

    @cybertech - awesome, seems like you are enjoying the time to do some next-level testing

    And, it's great to see this provider's sincere outreach here.

    I think it's a smart move - seems like a good sign that they may be able to deliver quality services.

    Do you know the monthly price for the 5 GB ram / 4 vcore e5 deal you are testing - is it available to order? @AK_KWH please feel free to mention available deals on that node if you wish - while this review / benchmark discussion is not meant to be a sales thread, your comments would be welcome and appreciated in general.

    now wanting more details about which CPU flags are enabled (aes, maybe nested virtualization is supported too?) And the disk: seems like respectable speeds - a decent SSD and/or cache? Perhaps we might look forward to a proper @poisson analysis of the fio results ... :)

    @uptime yes it’s available but the price is 10$ with
    4Gb ram
    4 cores
    60Gb SSD
    1.5Gb bandwidth

    Thanked by uptime
  • @AK_KWH thanks, looks good. (Assuming it is actually 1.5 TB bandwidth?) :)

    Thanks for offering a free month for my test as well.

    Any intention to add netinstall ISO images for custom installs?

    So, more benches and more comments after 2 weeks of probing.

    Main website looks incomplete, does not look ready. some loose codes here and there.
    Virtualizor plugin in the client area is still not fixed, so its not possible to manage vps from there.

    Virtualizor end user panel works well, no issue. Have seen more templates added in apart from the original Centos 7.6.
    Ubuntu , Debian, Windows. However still no (preloaded) ISO netinstall images. Personal preference is always ISO netinstall; this function even virmach has as well. Best would be netboot.xyz.

    Coming to benches, gut feel is that given the node specs, CPU access should likely be adequate most of the time, if not at full power. No issue exceeding 3K single core and above 9K multicore on most tests (Geekbench v4):

    Have personally grown to like 2680v3 as well. IOPS looks good, no issue crunching and installing stuffs, and given 2TB SSDs it should be able to hold its own down the road. Again my perception is that this node is pretty empty at the moment.

    Main consideration would be (limited) RAM, however this is managed by provider and the new lineup reflects that as well.

    network is stable, no issue, smooth.

  • I'm going to hijack this thread @cybertech so I can throw in my 2 cents.

    As you all know, @AK_KWH has invited me to also review this service for him. My first impressions of the provider were not great to be honest, but that didn't really have anything to do with the service itself so I consider this as an opportunity for @AK_KWH to improve things and for me to "see for myself" how things are.

    The deal I have is this one:

    VPS 5GB
    
        50 GB SSD Disk Space
        1.5 TB Bandwidth @ 1 Gbps
        5 GB RAM
        4 CPU Core
        1 IPV4
        KVM
    
    $6/mo
    

    Looking at the advertised specs and the price this appears to be a relatively attractive deal.

    My initial thoughts after a few days is that the provider is new to VPS offerings, having dealt primarily with shared hosting in the past, so there are going to be some rough edges and some opportunities to learn from. The first was the complete lack of Debian templates, which after I mentioned it to him, was added right away.

    The performance of the node is excellent. I would say that the node has next to nothing running on it, which is natural when a provider first starts out. Speaking of the node, here's the specs:

    Dual E5-2680v3
    64GB DDR4 ECC RAM
    4x2TB SSD - HW Raid 10
    

    Dual E5-2680v3 is a nice setup, not a slouch of a CPU at all. Let's see how this bad boy performs on the plow:

    The benchmark agrees with the advertised specs and the CPU is running at full steam. Network is well connected, it seems that 1Gservers have their shit together. The results look like an empty node, again this is fine and expected behavior for a new provider.

    I have some concerns that there could be some issues down the line with the limited RAM of the host node, considering that 64GB of RAM is definitely going to be the restriction on how much he can sell. I'm curious about how that would be dealt with, since it will require a well configured RAID setup to keep things smooth.

    I'm going to say that this is definitely not premium stuff, and thankfully, it's not being sold as such. I think this would be a good provider to try if you're looking for something in the USofA on the cheap, particularly if it's nothing that you'll lose millions of dollars over if it goes offline.

    In my case personally, I likely won't renew this. Anything that I would use this VPS for already has a stable home, and I can't find a useful place for it in my "fleet" to put it on the plow. In saying that, if I didn't have some crazy awesome deals already, this would appeal to me in the same way that I would take a gamble on a CC host.

    TL;DR - Works as advertised, performance is good at this stage with empty server, high specs for low price, new provider and has shown willingness to adapt feedback. Worth taking an "educated gamble" on a new provider in most cases, too early to tell if this ends well.

    I genuinely wish @AK_KWH all the best with his business and I would love to see what improvements are made over time.

  • @dahartigan very similar conclusions as well

    On side note KWH has new deals at 180GB SSD which is probably what this node is better for: more storage with decent CPU

    It is Virtualizor's WHMCS module which is broken & we have been in touch with them & waiting for the fix but so far no ETA has been provided. Once we receive a fix, we will apply it immediately

    We have 30+ VPS on the node mostly 512 MB & 1 GB ones so it is not empty as assumed by some here :) We are going to add 64 GB RAM to the node this week

    Thank you everyone for your feedback, it will surely help us provide better quality services to you
