Carstensz Pyramid Server - $6.91 512MB KVM VPS in France

Carstensz Pyramid Server Hamonangan from Carstensz Pyramid Server has sent me their special offer for the LowEndBox readers. Promo code EULEB applies to their EU-based KVM boxes, and that gives you 52% off recurring discount. Their “CFK-512” package would be $6.91/month after the discount, and it has

  • 512MB memory/1024MB swap
  • 15GB storage
  • 300GB/month data transfer
  • Linux KVM

Click this link to sign up. Servers are with OVH in France, and Hamonangan has got a whole page on configuring network on your KVM VPS there. There is currently no control panel for these KVM, although CPS is coding up some scripts to do basic management (still work in progress). There are quite a few other work-in-progress there. For example About page is still in Indonesian.

CPS has been in business since 2007, domain registered since 2009, and is operated from Indonesia. Hamonangan has also been an active member at LowEndTalk. It’s nice to see more KVM offers especially in Europe.

    Any idea what the CPU cap is on this? Equal share?

    I try to avoid buying “Equal share”, too scammy meaning when you need 800-1000 dedicated.
    With no idea how many contains is on the node advertising “Equal share” is just pointless.

    • Are you talking about OpenVZ servers, or Xen/KVM servers?

      Almost *all* of my VPS running production sites are on equal share. All my Linode boxes are on 4 CPU core equal share. I hate it when Xen/KVM providers deliberately cap the CPU, where you see the loadavg goes way up when CPU user/sys merely makes a blip.

        I didn’t think there was a difference when it came to CPU usage.. What is the difference between equal share on OpenVZ and Kvm/Xen?

    • CPS:

      i don’t know about “equal CPU share” means, but we’re using dual CPU with 4 cores, each CPU. http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=40711 not a brand new processor thought, maybe i’ll grab the OVH’s new batch. :p

      and to be honest this Node with Raid 1 SATA + BFS + non-overloaded system + some more tweaks from me. i hope the result not too bad. -__-”

      IRC allowed for this node, but i’m not sure why OVH only block the 6667 port by default.

      if anyone having some other question please open ticket to our pre-sales support. i’ll try answering here, but i’m a LET member not LEB.. (whistling)

      • I guess it refers to CFS. But you have just mentioned that BFS is used. :)

    Ah,, sorry i didn’t notice this post. :p thanks LEA. i mean it. but for one or more correction we still use Virtualizor for our control panel, but as long as OVH need us to put they Virtual Mac Addres per each ips we can’t do automagically instant setup. at least for network only.
    Right now i’m trying to coding some script for client-side so they can put they mac address by themself. VIrtualizor using libvirt and libvirt didn’t care about mac address. they keep random generating over and over again when you reinstalling OS. they have some good API documentation here http://www.ovh.com/soapi/en/
    Virtualizor has encoded script so i’ll put my code on WHMCS module.

    mmm,, about us… man. i forgot to change that page!! hahaha later :p

    well, grab it. it’s still a huge discount for just one “open VNC > vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 or /etc/network/interfaces” action. :p

    • Daniel @ LowEndTalk:

      You could use SolusVM

      V2 of the SolusVM WHMCS Module is Open-Source, simply change it so perhaps it calls setmacaddressapi.php?ip=182.111.511 when it provisions a VPS which then calls the OVH API and sets the MAC. :P

      • CPS:

        yup.. i was thinking to use solusvm before i saw they announcement in ticket support form. :p kidding.

    • First I;ve heard of it as well. And I believe OVH, the seedbox kingpin of the world, is based out of France….

      I do hope they’re based out of France. I’m going off of memory as they’re blocked from here.

    • Sorry LEA for hijacking your ads. but we’ve got some huge demand here. i don’t want to post this in our home page :D

      for everyone who came from here, use this special offer. no promo code, same as our CFK-512 package specification, and only 10 available. please don’t ask me to do more if you don’t want to see us listed in next month dead pool. :p
