    1 gigabit per second internet connection?

    Home connection is cheap, commercial connections are marginally higher, but both are usually provided on a best-effort basis with a slight difference in the contention ratio. The real expensive ones are the bandwidth at DC, especially those with good regional peering/upstreams. Although the...

    123systems dd on new node.

    I for one, still can't figure out why dd result matters when it comes to VPS. Unless I'm doing a lot of writes to the disk all day long, I'm not going to do this dd test any time. However, if I'm doing that much of I/O to the HDD, most likely I will get an abuse warning before anything.

    Spam/Replica Friendly Providers?

    Keep getting their promotional emails, and then I did some checks on where the emails were blasted and where the sites were hosted. The owner with the email address ([email protected]) holds quite a number of domains, including but not limited to,

    HighPoint RocketCache 3240x8/3244x8

    Does anyone have any experience in using these cards from Highpoint? It looks interesting, reviews look good on desktop, and most importantly it's not tagged with a sky-high price. Now what I'm not sure is whether they are suitable to be installed on a server that runs a couple of virtual...
