      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.

  1. It's still very early in this startup's life but I like what I've seen (which is a rarity) so time for a review. VScale.io (website: www.vscale.io) is a new Russian hourly billing "cloud" provider targeted to developers. mini review / random notes: Saint-Petersburg location recent startup (but owned by Selectel, AS49505, an established Russian DC operator who owns 6 data centers in Saint-Petersburg and Moscow), hourly billing, integrated VM control panel/billing/support panel features are very much in progress (currently only 4 OS choices [Ubuntu 14.04, Debian 8.1, CentOS 7.1, OpenSuse 13.2, all 64-bit) . More OS choices, snapshots, and other features "coming soon". The panel, including SSH keys, works very well. API available (documentation currently Russian only https://developers.vscale.io/documentation/api/v1/ ) Excellent VPS performance (nodes feature SSD drives, KVM, E5 v3 processors, DDR4 RAM) and much better network performance than most other low cost Russian VPS's (points finger at Edis). Probably the fastest VPS creation I've experienced on any cloud platform. Support is very fast too (English support is available. Website/panel languages are English and Russian). tl;dr review: I like it my plan: 512 MB RAM, 20GB SSD, 1 CPU, 1TB traffic, 200 rubles monthly (about $2.93), KVM, Saint-Petersburg Russia location obligatorybench.sh benchmark: [email protected]:~# wget freevps.us/downloads/bench.sh -O - -o /dev/null|bash CPU model : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2670 v3 @ 2.30GHz Number of cores : 1 CPU frequency : 2299.996 MHz Total amount of ram : 494 MB Total amount of swap : 511 MB System uptime : 3 days, 21:04, Download speed from CacheFly: 33.6MB/s Download speed from Coloat, Atlanta GA: 11.5MB/s Download speed from Softlayer, Dallas, TX: 12.5MB/s Download speed from Linode, Tokyo, JP: 8.44MB/s Download speed from i3d.net, Rotterdam, NL: 26.0MB/s Download speed from Leaseweb, Haarlem, NL: 85.8MB/s Download speed from Softlayer, Singapore: 7.41MB/s Download speed from Softlayer, Seattle, WA: 14.4MB/s Download speed from Softlayer, San Jose, CA: 14.8MB/s Download speed from Softlayer, Washington, DC: 4.39MB/s I/O speed : 186 MB/s press release: http://www.gawkwire.com/web_hosting/selectel-unveils-new-cloud-hosting-brand-vscale.html coupon code--> SCALET200 (enough credit for 1 free month of 512MB KVM) <--SMS verification for new accounts required (or phone verification if you can't receive SMS).

Features We offer a rich set of cloud features to fit your needs, no matter the application. Hourly billing: create and destroy virtual machines at any time, and only pay for the hours used. Our service is prepaid, and payments can be made via Paypal or Bitcoin. Custom operating systems: add custom ISO and qcow2 images directly from the panel by submitting a URL to the image; once the panel has finished downloading your image, you can begin provisioning VMs from it immediately. Live snapshots: snapshot your running VM at any time (no need to even turn it off!). The disk state will then be saved on a distributed filesystem, and can be cloned to provision more instances with the same configuration, or simply kept as a backup. API: a powerful API is available to programatically manage your servers and other cloud services. Private virtual networks: isolate your network traffic and get more control over your network configuration. Load balancers: HTTP(S) and TCP load balancers can be created within virtual networks to easily set up a distributed and redundant service. Detachable volumes: create arbitrary-sized block devices (volumes) and attach/detach them to virtual machine instances on the fly. Volumes are stored on a reliable, distributed Ceph RADOS cluster. Security groups: define external traffic restrictions on a VM-group level to make securing your software easy. Startup scripts: specify shell or cloud-config scripts to be run the first time your new VM instances boot. Server monitoring and DNS hosting: we offer complementary server monitoring (with various checks such as ping, TCP connect, and HTTP substring, and alerts over e-mail or SMS) and DNS hosting. Get started by registering an account in our panel! You can open a ticket within the first week to request a refund of remaining credit on your account, no questions asked.
