As for what to do with the system…I’m still undecided. Another thing: I should have put this benchmark on benchmarks.k0nsl.org as that is where it belongs, but seeing as I did all the other posts about the E8400 on this blog, I decided to put the benchmark here as well.
It’s not the end of the world

…not too shabby

Curiosa

The host node runs on a Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1230 V2 with 32 GB ram — hosting only this container + two additional containers: one is cPanel based, the other a minimal CentOS container for a “client”. That’s it, as I say.

RunAbove Sandbox

RunAbove RunAbove

A quick draft with results for my RunAbove Cloud Sandbox. The description of the RunAbove service is as follows:

For developer, by developers.
RunAbove has been created by the OVH Group. We want to change the way you look at Cloud Computing Services.

Based on a new vision of Cloud Computing Services, RunAbove is the first mono-slot provider in the world.
We focus on ensuring the best performance in terms of I/O, network throughput, CPU and RAM.
RunAbove aims to provide a cloud infrastructure powerful and transparent, for developers all over the world so they can focus on their work by relying on unshakable resources.
Unshakable resources!

RunAbove is a $10 million investment

The ‘Cloud Sandbox’ instances have no SLA (last time I checked) but my experience since I signed up has been stable and the network has been good as well. I also have a Power8 instance, but have not had any time to play with it much – not yet!

[slider crop=”yes” slide1=”/blog/k1/uploads/2014/11/k0nsl-RunAbove-Power8.png” slide2=”/blog/k1/uploads/2014/11/k0nsl-RunAbove-Power8_02.png” slide3=”/blog/k1/uploads/2014/11/k0nsl-RunAbove-Power8_03.png”][/slider]

The RunAbove panel looks like this in “simple”-mode:
RunAbove-Simple-Panel01_k0nsl

Here are my initial results for the ‘Cloud Sandbox’ instance.

Benchmark of Berry Servers

Berry Servers Berry Servers

Hi friends,

I reckon, most people who know the k0nsl, they also know I’m a sucker for new stuff, right? Well…not in a material sense, of course! I could care less for any material things. But back to “Berry Servers”: when they launched their VPS line I almost hit the order button instantly, at the prospect of getting a few more cheap IRC nodes + new nodes for DNS clustering, but I kept trying to resist it, telling myself I’ve no use for more…fruitless! I was only able to resist for one day before I finally ordered one. Yes, it was weak of me.
I am the first person to admit that

Berry Servers offers very cheap yearly VPS Hosting in Phoenix, Arizona.

At any rate, I am currently testing their ‘Blueberry’-plan — which they upgraded to a “Dewberry” in the end (only the memory was upgraded, IIRC)

The brief introduction would be the following blob:

Berry Servers is owned and run by Epidrive Webhosting Solutions. Berry Servers’ main goal is to provide reliable and affordable VPS servers. All our plans include best effort support and 99% uptime guarantee. Stocks are limited so get yours while you still can.

A few generic results are in order. I will update this with more replete information on Thursday or Friday, as I’ve got very little time for this right now..

The End

I’ll run the “Shoahbench” on it when I’ve done more tweaks to the script + more [UPDATE: this has now been added, see above]. Right now I’m going to sit back a few months to evaluate their offering. As I always do.
So far nothing out of the ordinary save for a mishap on launch. Not a big deal. They fixed it and my service is working fine so far.

Backupsy — a month later!

Backupsy CP Backupsy CP

I’ve been with Backupsy for about one month now, I started my service with them at 09/14/2014 and up until now everything has been functioning as expected; no issues. The recent emergency maintenance which subsequently meant moving the node to another rack meant nothing, it all seamlessly went past me without any hiccups.

The only thing which really matters to me is the network connectivity (which has been fine). I am using Syncthing [2] to syncronise backups across several machines.

Here are a few benchmarks to compare to my previous benchmark [1] over one month ago. If you are looking for a solid provider for backing up your data, you might want to give this company a try — I’m not disappointed

Backupsy – basic tests

Backupsy Backupsy

I’ve been using Backupsy (https://backupsy.com/) for backing up some of my data and their service has been good for me, so far. I have nothing to complain about from my own experience this far!

Here’s some basic tests:

PetaByet Benchmark

Speedtest.net Test

backupsy-speedtest03_k0nsl

backupsy-speedtest02_k0nsl

backupsy-speedtest01_k0nsl

Disk Benchmark

Yes…I know – “dd”, ahem. But this is a quick and dirty test to just get the basics out there

Conclusion

So far — for me personally — they’ve been providing a service that is not only cheap, but one that is reliable and has good connectivity with what I’m using it for. I can recommend Backupsy if you need a place to backup your data.

I’m just putting these PetaByet benchmarks up for the moment. They will be complimented with more content in another post after I’ve got to know their services more intimately. Makonix SIA / YourServerSE offer locations in Sweden and Latvia.

The VPSes are running nginx, PHP-FPM, IRCd and SoftEther VPN and so far both are working fine, no issues whatever, even better considering it’s only costing 6€/q. So we’ll see how they fair in the next couple of years. But next “review” will be in a matter of four or five months — just to get to know their service better. Anyway, at least here’s some initial benchmarks. Better than nothing
