  3. Augh, and I had just bought new service last week. I could have had an extra 7% off… There’s only one solution to this, and that’s buy more service! I think I’ll complete the cdn trio and buy an Amsterdam vps.

    42% off is the biggest discount offered by Ramnode.

    Thank you to everyone who clicked my name and used my affiliate link :)

    For our Asian clients, we are in the process of adding NTT to our Seattle blend to improve connectivity for that part of the world.

    I been waiting for a good discount in RamNode, I mean a few weeks waiting, and finally I got a terrific deal 42%off and recurring.

    Just a little test on a 128MB OpenVZ in Atlanta show this:

    root@alpha:~# dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync
    16384+0 records in
    16384+0 records out
    1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 1.03587 s, 1.0 GB/s

    Nick,

    Any risk for data loss on [ SEACVZE5-3 ] node,

    it seems that the file-system/RAID is not stable,

    and have more than 4hr offline these days.

  11. Which location will provide better connectivity to Asia/India ? If your US locations are company owned and provide same or almost similar connectivity to Asia, with marginal difference, are the US locations recommended?

  18. I have three services with Ramnode in ATL and SEA and I couldn’t be happier. Excellent support, services, and prices. Deals like these only make me consider purchasing more services.

    Nick and his staff provide the best support in the business IMHO. It also doesn’t hurt that virtually no other VPS provider in the US can touch their overall benchmarks from IO to CPU performance. I am very happy to be customer.

    If I order two 128MB CVZ-E5, can the ram and storage be doubled? No need for 2 IP. :)

  22. Looks Like I just missed this offer.
    Tried to order today to find the coupon had expired.
    Want a backup server and the prices (with discount) seemed right.

    How enforced are their torrenting policies? I have a VPS that I use for torrenting and seeding (legal stuff only) on BuyVM and they don’t seem to care if I go over 100mbps. The disk space on Ramnode is better for the price, and I’d happily buy a box with them if the 100mbps restriction was more of a suggestion than a serious requirement.
