Community Roundup – May 2015

Tags: Date/Time: July 2, 2015 @ 1:00 am, by Maarten Kossen

It’s time for another Community Roundup and this is going to be an interesting one. Lots of stuff happening and as usual, the customer doesn’t benefit.

The GreenValueHost saga continues…

Just when you thought this couldn’t get any bigger a mess than it already was, it did.

A while ago, Duke, from XFuse Solutions, acquired the GreenValueHost (let’s call this GVH v1) clients and re-branded it into TacVPS. The full details of the deal were never disclosed to the public, but everybody’s best guess is there was debt involved and that debt needed to be paid off. Either way, it seemed that customers were better off and Jonny Nguyen would quit the hosting industry. So far, so good.

Jonny, the original “CEO” or GHV v1, did a restart with GreenValueHost (let’s call this GVH v2) and focused on Shared Hosting with 100% customer satisfaction at first. He later started offering Xen VPS as well. Needless to say, this was against every promise he made when he “sold” GVH v1 to Duke and opened a new can of worms. A can of worms that could only end in…

Macrobash

Deepak, from Macrobash, is back with a VPS offer for the LowEndBox community. This is their second time to be featured here. The first time was a dedicated server, and now they are offering a High Storage VPS server located in The Netherlands.

NL200

  • Intel Xeon X3210 Quad Core CPU (4 x 2.13GHz)

  • Unmetered Incoming transfer
  • 5TB Outgoing transfer
  • 100Mbps port speed
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM
  • $7/month

MacroBash is legally registered as MS MACRO BASH Pvt. Ltd. in New Delhi India with company registration number U72300DL2010PTC204070. They were founded just last year and their domain was registered last November 2014. Deepak told us that ticket and livechat support is 24/7. Their previous offer here was met with criticism – not because of quality issues but because the community pointed out that they were just reselling the offered dedicated servers. Hopefully, this offer will be received warmly. We highly encourage our readers to share their thoughts on the comments section below.

Server monitoring with Icinga 2 – Part 1: the server (Ubuntu host)

Tags: , Date/Time: June 29, 2015 @ 1:00 am, by Maarten Kossen

lowendtutorial

Nagios has, for a long time, been the defacto standard tool for server monitoring. These day that’s surprising, as Nagios’ visible development has been quite slow over the past years and new solutions have popped up meanwhile. Not just self-hosted solutions, but cloud-based solutions with fancy metrics voodoo as well.

Still, though, switching monitoring solutions can be a pain and cloud-based solutions arguably cost more than a self-hosted solution. So, say you want to switch from Nagios or you want to start with server monitoring, there is a solution. Icinga2!

Icinga started as a Nagios fork and did quite well, mostly considering Icinga Web which was better than Nagios’ web interface. Icinga 2 is a complete rewrite and even adds a fancy new (optional) web interface which is responsive and customizable. On top of that, the communication between the monitoring server and the nodes it monitors has become more secure as NRPE has been ditched (it’s still available, just not prefered).

I’m going to show you how to set up an Icinga 2 server with Icinga Web 2. In two weeks, I’ll let you know how to add nodes to it as well. Let’s get to business!

chicagovps net 2015-06-25 21-05-00 Chris, from ChicagoVPS, has sent in these special offers for a double the RAM event, making these offers quite interesting. All offers are available on month-to-month payments.

More offers inside!

We all know ChicagoVPS, of course, whether it’s because they are famous or infamous. They have had their ups and downs over the years, but since they’ve been in business since 2010 and are still running strong they must be doing something right. Their last offer received a lot of negative feedback so it’s quite fair to say to be cautious when using ChicagoVPS until those concerns are addressed. If what was written in the comments is true, these make perfect development servers but not the ideal production systems. Host nodes have at least four hard drives in RAID10 with SSDs being used for caching, which works quite well for OpenVZ-based servers. As always, please keep the community up-to-date on your experiences with ChicagoVPS and be aware that if you require help, ticket numbers will help them help you! (More…)
