Short version if you don't want to read: don't sign up with this horrible company run by arrogant management. The service itself is fine, but if you ask a question regarding some network performance they will terminate your server, take all of your customers offline immediately with no warning or time to back up your critical customer data (if the data was not important I would not have chosen to pay for a server with hardware RAID10 and a BBU). I'm going to post a detailed version later I am just so angry I cannot even type right now. But yes, if you were a BetterVPS customer your data has now been deleted simply because of the below support ticket response. Sure, I said shit, but come on get a life. Well, I've done some testing and your theory is BS. Here's why: Test server #1: my Incero dedicated server mango.bettervps.com Test server #2: a CatalystHost VPS: 220.127.116.11? disk benchmark of #1 at time of testing: 252 MB/s (2016Mb/s) disk benchmark of #2 at time of testing: 106 MB/s (848Mb/s) scp a 100mbps test file from #1 to #2: 25MB/s (200Mbps) scp the same 100mbps test file from #2 to #1: 14.3MB/s (114.4Mbps) This disproves your theory of disk bottleneck. Additionally, it proves that it is not transferring filese at Gigabit speeds, even in the internally and according to a previous response from you "on the same switch as ryan arp." Clearly you are not giving me the "dedicated 1Gbps" I was told would come with this server. It's working fine otherwise and my clients are happy. But I am not. I expect to get those speeds always. Clearly your "~27gbit/second spare capacity" is not working. Additionally, I do not appreciate your condescending and rude attitude. I understand it's an unmanaged service however I am paying for the hardware and network and I am not getting what I paid for. I don't care if I pay $18/month, $180/month, or $1800/month, I am a client that does not deserve to be treated like or spoken to as a piece of shit.
