...They are brilliant!

Anyways,

Well I thought I'd post my review on INIZ, it's not normaly I'd dabble in the "Low end market" on something I need for production use neither for anything important. Reading over their past and being a long time lurker on LET then this less-childish place which seems a godsend lol  :) they seem like quite a friendly company growing pretty well as well.

My Review of INIZ:

- Price 9/10

Like me using Iniz as a budget provider I decided to take the plunge on there 512MB SSD VPS based in the Netherlands.for under 9 quid for 3 months you can't complain at all, I dont normally go long term without previous testing but i guess I couldn't resist to play with some SSD space.

- Support 10/10

To be honest I hadn't used it once until coincidentally all of this heat was on SolusVM with the security, the day after I needed a OS install I couldn't do it via the control panel obviously so i shot of a ticket and I get a response within the hour nice and quick if you ask me. I'm set to go with a fresh install  :) but i needed another one due to testing, so i got holld of patrick probably 2 - 4 times over 2 days?  He was happy to help and done it nice and quickly for me even on weekends.

- Network 10/10

I have servers in the UK and have maintained them for some time, with Iniz being out of the UK now and moved everything to the Netherlands It was perfect for me since I needed VPS over there which can still provide a good speeds to the UK and elsewhere.


System uptime :   2 days, 23:54, << Due to the OS reinstall we did have 29 days uptime.

Download speed from CacheFly: 37.5MB/s

Download speed from Coloat, Atlanta GA: 10.3MB/s

Download speed from Softlayer, Dallas, TX: 11.2MB/s

Download speed from Linode, Tokyo, JP: 4.99MB/s

Download speed from i3d.net, NL: 101MB/s

Download speed from Leaseweb, Haarlem, NL: 60.6MB/s

Download speed from Softlayer, Singapore: 3.91MB/s

Download speed from Softlayer, Seattle, WA: 8.24MB/s

Download speed from Softlayer, San Jose, CA: 8.33MB/s

Download speed from Softlayer, Washington, DC: 14.6MB/s

UK Speed Tests:

Linode London: 56.9MB/s

Redstation: 90.9 MB/s

Got more test files? Ill test them  :)
Overall I'm very happy.




- Performance 9/10


I don't do all the crappy "I'll run this benchmark" or DD tests determine how good a vps is. It's snappy and does the job brilliantly. If you are wondering on DD tests then Its happily getting 1.2Gb/s with no issues  ;)

Only snag is that i've noticed a little lag when logging into SSH every now and then but it don't hurt.

Anyway, that's my review - Now where is my 6 months free credit!... I'm joking!.

You should avoid having me on your team in a FPS match with friendly fire turned on. My high powered sniper rifle and I have Inadvertantly killed plenty of teammates. Also, I once managed to take out my ENTIRE TEAM with a well placed HE 'nade. Oops!

Hey Patrick! Could you please kindly send me an order link to that backup plan you once offered in NL? Thanks in advance!

Great to hear Reece and titanic! 

I hope that 1.2GB/s isn't too slow for you  :wub:

Not sure which one as i've done many custom plans before, I'll shoot you a PM and see if it was the one I did recently over at LET

I am an OpenVZ.io customer (INIZ brand) since a few days now, Amsterdam datacenter.

It's my first VPS experience, but way better than I expected, so I've started referring it to my friends.

They are some minor downsides:

- the price of an additional dedicated IP is $2.50

- the OS distribution list is not up-to-date (I wanted Ubuntu 13.10 but only 13.04 and 12.04 is available. With 12.04 I completely agree because it's an LTS release, but 13.04 should be superseded by 13.10; I upgraded to 13.10 from the CLI)

- they didn't have a vpsBoard option for the "for where did you hear about us" field on the sign-up page :)
