Shortly I will be adding both a new location and KVM to our offering. I figured I would take the time to do a short beta test of the service to make sure it is up to par.

I have the following:

  • 4 Cores
  • 2GB RAM
  • 15Gb Disk
  • 1Gbps
  • 1 Ipv4
Location LA

Order link for this beta is: HERE

All orders will be manually activated later tonight. All must pass fraud check to be approved.

I would love to hear any and all feedback. Feel free to post here or pm me/open a ticket.

What network will this be?  Upstreams?
While it may not be your favorite. It is colocrossing inside quadranet.

I do however have plans to make myself stand out from the other hosts within the same area.

The same self restore file level backups are being worked on for the KVM servers and should be hopfully working soon.

Free Rage4 is still included as well as free offloaded SQL in that location as well as a few other things I would rather keep silent for the moment.

Please sign up for the beta, I would appreciate any feedback that you may have either critical or positive.

Generally:

How well it performs

Anything that isn't working that should

Something broken

Improvement suggestions

etc

All this considering that others are hitting it hard during the beta as well.

For those clients that need their solusvm username just open a ticket:

I mistakenly left it out of the welcome email.

What reinstalls/CD options are you planning to add in the future. One odd thing I did notice is that the SSH password I entered during checkout / got an email containing didn't work but a quick re-install fixed that problem.

Edit: Seems that the CentOS 6.4 Minimal does not install properly. I can't SSH into it after a reinstall. Debian and Ubuntu installs work though.

Reinstalls will have much more templates. All the major OS's and desktop versions as well if they are wanted.

The SSH password is a minor setting that I just have not changed yet. It will not be like that after the beta.

We will also allow supplying of ISOs most likely

Thanks Alex.   I'll sign up and give it a spin.  Haven't been on their network out there in California before and long been a kicker of Quadranet's network.   Who knows, since you are there, maybe I'll be impressed :)

Thanks and glad to hear you are signing up. If you want the best results in testing/benchmarking you would probably be best to wait until tomorrow to benchmark if you signup tonight (Everyone seems to be hitting it at once).

Oh boy, the LET'ers are gong to crunch and bang the server.

Any idea of what the network upstream / provider blend is?  Those speeds look good, better than average for certain.

I will double check, I know I asked what the blend was but it may be back a whiles.

I will get back to you on that.

Yeah the network I/O seems to be pretty sporadic at the moment so I'll probably wait to continue benchmarking, however the disk seems to be fairly fast, I was getting something like 930MB/s.

What kind of disk setup are you running?
