BuyVM Quick Test

BuyVM BuyVM

A somewhat rushed test for VPS provider BuyVM (buyvm.net). Just enough to let somebody get an overall idea about the service.

I might update this post in the future, especially to format it in a decent manner. I’m revamping the entire blog in three months. So for now it will look like junk

As for the tests, have a look below. The tests are all from their Las Vegas location.

Note

As I was writing this post the main HDD for my workstation collapsed, luckily I do keep fresh backups – so I will be restoring a snapshot of the latest backup today or tomorrow, or simply wait until after the weekend is over and buy a new set of disks. It’s time to upgrade them anyway
