      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

      -MannDude

  1. DigitalOcean's DNS disruption post-mortem
  2. I've been using the DO API to automate some things like VPS reboot and snapshootadding DNS records to configure email with ZohoYou can find the scripts on my github. Feel free to fork away / come with other examples / use cases that you've automated or need automation.
  3. Hey guys thought I'd share my DigitalOcean vs Linode vs Vultr benchmarks I just did using my own benchmark script, centminmodbench.sh :) Full results at https://community.centminmod.com/threads/digitalocean-vs-linode-vs-vultr-48gb-16-cpus-centminmodbench-sh-results.1389/ :D Still trying to figure out the exact cpus used by Vultr though - maybe folks here can pin point the model used ?

  4. Howdy everyone! So I decided to spin up an instance of DigitalOcean Singapore and Vultr Japan to see which one truly kicks more butt for Asia! (Or in my case... for me). This may look like a review, but its not meant to be a review (probably because I just got this and believe a true review would require a few months of usage and interaction with the support staff). Let's get this rolling! DigitalOcean - Singapore DigitalOcean Singapore is located in Equinix's Singapore facility (or so as their blog post states here), but it seems they're not using Equinix's network blend there because it's incredibly lacking. Either way, network to me (Korea) from their Singapore Datacenter is around 120ms during peak hours and 100ms during regular hours. Here's the serverbear benchmark: http://serverbear.com/benchmark/2014/03/06/l112zUCMCPYolGFU Vultr - Japan Vultr's backed by Choopa and is in their Tokyo Datacenter location (didn't really try to look for specific information behind it). I'm not too sure specifically what their network blend is nor did I really spend the time to look it up further than a simple bgp lookup. For my uses (to Korea), I think they just plain screwed up the routing because my traces goes from Korea to Los Angeles (Level3) then Los Angeles (NTT) to Tokyo. Here's the serverbear benchmark: http://serverbear.com/benchmark/2014/03/06/9vEoPjgVAg1OOokC (Ignore how it says DigitalOcean, I entered Vultr but it just didn't seem to accept it and think it was DigitalOcean) Comparison Hardware They're all 1 CPU with 40GB HDD, but the CPU for Vultr seems to be better as it received higher unixbench ratings and was also clocked at 3.4 GHz (in comparison to DigitalOcean's 2.0GHz CPU). IO Vultr is better but my assumption is that I'm on an unpopulated Vultr server in comparison to DO's already-filled/full server. Regardless, not a big issue at the moment because I have way more than I'll ever need for both companies. Network Now... this is where it bothers me. Vultr should technically have better network to me because it's RIGHT THERE next to me. Unfortunately, Vultr has the worst network to me. DigitalOcean and Vultr though seems to have a decent connection in the country they're located in, and their network internationally seems to be a big "Ehhhhhhhh". Vultr does have a faster route to Cachefly than DigitalOcean though. Conclusion This isn't supposed to be a review, it was supposed to be a simple comparison and presentation of information (especially since I just got this and I immediately ran this test). DO seems to have a better network for my uses but Vultr seems to have better hardware (or at least better per VM). So here's the discussion part, does anyone see Vultr beating DO? Anyone see it as a good alternative for Asia in general?
  5. Hi! DigitalOcean and Serverbear are doing a giveaway of $1000 DigitalOcean credit, or 9 winners for $50! Sign up here: https://gleam.io/866v7-eyGDZw (non-referral: http://serverbear.com) and click on the blue button in the right corner :-)
  6. So Choopa has dropped a new product called Vultr.com, it's attempt to compete directly with DigitalOcean. A side-by-side comparison of vultr.com and digitialocean.com show a lot of similarities. A total ripoff if I may say so myself. The bottom end package 512MB, 20GB disk and 1TB transit is an identical $5 from each company. The similarities remain across all the other plans, a wholesale ripoff by Choopa, aka Vultr.com... Only difference is Choopa/Vultr undercuts DigitalOcean by $5 here and $10 there depending on the plan. This has to be one of the worst named and highly ripped off like-brands I've ever seen. What do other folks think? Interesting seeing Choopa competing with VPS companies now --- companies they until now have sold a decent number of servers and colo to....
  7. DO not scrubbing disks?

    https://github.com/fog/fog/issues/2525 How can something like this get overlooked? One would think if they made a design choice to reuse block-level media instead of use some sort of virtual disk, the idea of sharing the drive between two users might've come up at some point? What do you guys think? Is this going to be a recurring problem with new panels showing up on the market?
  8. So I'm as giddy as a school girl right now. Digital Ocean finally has servers in 111 8th street in the heart of New York City! This is also the Google Datacenter downtown (Google now owns the building) and is known to have a great network. I've been looking for a service here for a few years and I finally got one! Here's the e-mail: DigitalOcean is happy to announce the opening of our newest data center in New York City. 111 8th Avenue (NY2) is not only the third largest building in New York City, but is also New York’s Google building. In addition to significantly increasing East Coast capacity, this new datacenter brings DigitalOcean even closer to rolling out private networking for our customers, which will premiere in NY2! Due to our tremendous growth, we are investing heavily in our infrastructure as we continue to add more capacity and new data centers throughout the world. Additionally, we have added a significant amount of server capacity in Europe. $5 per month, 512MB droplets, are, once again, available for deployment for all customers in Amsterdam. Awesome!
