[B]Do you provide remote backups?[/B] Yes, we take remote backups of each VPS image on a weekly basis. We keep each backup for seven days, at which time it is overwritten with a new backup. You can request a VPS restore through a support ticket.

They are some of the fastest on the market. Our SSD-Cached VPSs are also very quick, but come with more space. They store "hot" data (data frequently accessed by the server) in a RAID10 array of SSDs. Less frequently accessed data is stored on HDDs. The whole process is automated by our high performance RAID cards. [B]What is the difference between KVM and OpenVZ?[/B] KVM is true virtualization where the VPS operates as its own server, independently of the host node. OpenVZ is a container style of virtualization which relies on the host node's kernel. KVM has no restrictions in terms of functionality, but it has more overhead than OpenVZ. OpenVZ is constrained by the host node kernel, but it has less overhead in the containers themselves.

[/B]We use Intel Ivy Bridge E3-1230v2 CPUs, LSI RAID cards, Samsung 830 SSDs, and Western Digital or Seagate enterprise HDDs.
  • Vouch for darksoul because he's awesome and provides awesome services. Buy now.
  • Darksouls a good guy, I would buy from him but I already have a VPS. :( [editline]12th July 2012[/editline] I think this month is almost done though, so I am genuinely considering this.

With Xen it's incredibly difficult to monitor a nodes total resource usage (CPU/etc) in real time and we have a hard enough time as is keeping track of the 30+ Xen nodes we have at MinecraftLayer and since we are intending on going beyond that with RamNode it's just not feasible to use Xen. With OpenVZ, we were able to implement a real time enterprise grade monitoring system with custom alerts on a per-vps basis and a per-node basis. If you don't mind me asking, what do you not like about OpenVZ?

If you don't mind me asking, what do you not like about OpenVZ?[/QUOTE] I've been running Xen for 3 years now, but I originally started out on OpenVZ. It turns out the project I build across a bunch of VMs doesn't build under OpenVZ without modification. Plus, I need to run VM-specific kernels, something I don't believe you can do in VZ by definition? I run a pretty large number of Xen nodes and don't really have any issues monitoring them, Nagios does a pretty good job. I am interested in moving to KVM (since CentOS basically dropped support for Xen) but I don't really want to have to migrate my entire set of nodes. I think I might try KVM out on new nodes though.
  • I'm not not saying it's [URL="https://www.elpishost.com/public/Screenshot-2012-07-12_19.30.20.png"]impossible[/URL] to monitor Xen VPS, just that you're pretty much limited to xm top output (which is what that is by the way - just graphed). Plus so far we're really enjoying OpenVZ. It's true that you can't load a custom kernel on a per VZ basis, but everything is running fine for everyone and so far we haven't had any complaints. We're also interested in exploring KVM, but that probably won't be for a couple of months - we want to get setup in Atlanta first. :wink:

  • Just purchased a VPS! [editline]14th July 2012[/editline] Everything is great so far, and it has a very nice latency.
  • [QUOTE=TerabyteS_;36767894]Just purchased a VPS! [editline]14th July 2012[/editline] Everything is great so far, and it has a very nice latency.[/QUOTE] Good to hear! Please let me know if you run into any problems.
  • I also wanna add on that unlike many of these other VPS companies where after you pay for the service and you have to wait a few minutes to an hour just for the money to go through and it all be set up, Ramnode is literally instant. I love it! :D
  • [QUOTE=TerabyteS_;36767894]Just purchased a VPS! [editline]14th July 2012[/editline] Everything is great so far, and it has a very nice latency.[/QUOTE] No idea how 180ms is "very nice latency".
  • [QUOTE=Crhem van der B;36770619]No idea how 180ms is "very nice latency".[/QUOTE] Unfortunately like any other server the further away you are the higher the ping will be.
  • [QUOTE=Crhem van der B;36770619]No idea how 180ms is "very nice latency".[/QUOTE] It is, considering the server is in Dallas and I'm in Italy, on a shitty connection.
