Is there any positive connotation to "vulture"? Nope.
Meh, the security issue was a classic fubar. Unsure who is being paid to dev stuff, but something like that is grounds for some pain in any environment I've ever worked. Like someone getting docked some money and humiliated. Someone needs coursework / mentor / best practices refresher.but but, didn't they just soft launch on Friday (2-3 days ago)? Cut them some slack on the documentation and the lack of OS's/dc's guys, jesus!
OS installation is not finished once it says it's activated. You can check it on VNC.- server becomes ready, did not take very long (not even one minute)
- I try to reach the instance via SSH - connection times out, repeatedly, so I reboot it: same result.
- so I decided to try to reinstall the OS, perhaps there was some hiccup for w/e reason...okay, all done, I wait a few moments extra just to be sure everything is deployed, and then I SSH to it: connection refused.
- after I had written the above I try it again (SSH) and it now works
Whoever's it was, at least got the option to change the Description (possible from the games server host that they're sharing with). I can't tell if I'm missing something obvious, or whether there really is no option to set the description/name either when creating, or when managing.
The lack of snapshots was definitely saddening. While it's not exactly difficult to set up a deployment script, it does add to deploy time and adds variables that I'd just as soon not have to deal with.no snapshots or such, only two OS choices.
Right? Here's one: at DO, if you merely stop a droplet you still get billed for it. You have to destroy it if you don't want to be billed. That information is easily found, and they'll even send you an e-mail saying as much the first time you stop one.A lot of information is missing about what they are offering.
Yes, which really makes their 'deploy in less than 60 seconds' thing a bit misleading. It took over 6 minutes between placing the order and being able to log in. While I don't remember DO's from-scratch deploy time, the fact that you can use a snapshot as the base does mean that you're up and running with additional DO droplets much more quickly.OS installation is not finished once it says it's activated. You can check it on VNC.
Fancy seeing you here
I agree with you on most of what you said, however, I always like seeing more competition, it will force DO to keep doing better stuff.Meh, the security issue was a classic fubar.

Debian as an OS option, yeah, it's sort of the server staple and odd to see it missed / not included. Unsure who the genius who dropped that was... Must be a CentOS adherent.
I'd be fine with this as an alpha to beta launch... But spending on Google Ads and all... That's pretty much show time. This stuff should have been identified in pre-launch.
There is a reason I won't buy from new companies... Have to expand that to new offers like this from established companies too.
Shame, cause seriously, Choopa runs a good network. I rather like them, but this is well, disappointing ripoff of the worst kind.
It's not just similar features...the actual website is an obvious copy.So offering similar features at a similar price constitutes a ripoff?
If that's the case then most VPS providers are ripoffs.
