Mike from AmeriNOC emailed me their special coupon code to get 25% off recurring discount on their unmanaged Xen VPS range. 25OFF256 is the code, and the lowest spec one would be $6.75/month after the discount. Here is the sign up link, and it has
- 256MB memory
- 25GB storage (Hybrid HDD in RAID10)
- 2TB/month data transfer on 1Gbps
- Xen HVM/SolusVM
Here are some info on Hybrid drives, although I am not sure how much performance can be gained on a server hosting virtualized environment. Lots of payment methods are supported — QG (credit cards), PayPal, LinkPoint (credit cards), AlertPay, CashX.com, OKPAY, etc. Servers in AIS Data Center in San Diego CA — see their datacenter page for details and speed test page for test download files. According to Mike, AmeriNOC has been around for more than 10 years. Indeed their IP address is delegated to “A1COLO.COM”, which redirects to AmeriNOC’s website, and A1COLO.COM was registered in July 2002.
FreeBSD 8.2 is also a configurable option for operating system.
