LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Carstensz Pyramid Server – $7 512MB KVM VPS in Asheville, France or Netherlands

Tags: , , , , Date/Time: November 5, 2011 @ 12:59 pm, by LowEndAdmin

Carstensz Pyramid Server Hamonangan from Carstensz Pyramid Server, aka Mon5t3r on LowEndTalk, sent me their special offer for the LowEndBox readers a few days ago. No coupon code needed, and 2 different KVM plans available in 3 different locations.

They are with Netriplex in Asheville NC (test IP: 67.23.160.247), OVH in Roubaix, France (test IP: 178.33.140.128) and Denkers-ICT in Dronten, Netherlands (test IP: 159.253.5.2). IPv6 is currently available in Asheville and France. Payment in PayPal or AlertPay.

Carstensz Pyramid Server is based in Indonesia and has been in business since 2007.

The original owner of LowEndBox known as "LowEndAdmin" or "LEA" for short founded LowEndBox in 2008 and created the concept of hosting applications on low resource "Low End Boxes". After creating the roots of the community that we know today, "LEA" stepped aside and allowed others to carry the torch forward.

    • I think I mentioned it in that thread but I’ve been testing a 128k that’s been provided to me free of charge. I’ve been finding it very snappy and quick at least with apt-get’s, compiling, file transfers and the like.

      The only major issue is that older versions of OSes are provided, in my case Debian 5.0. ISOs for newer versions (ie Debian 6.0.3) are provided but there are no instructions as to how to use them. I asked twice to be pointed to a tutorial but never got that question answered and I couldn’t find anything on the net as to how to do it either. I finally just installed Debian 5.0 from the control panel and did the upgrade from the prompt.

      If anyone wants me to run a test, please feel free to ask. The actual command would be a plus just so we all know what’s being run.

      • I’m pretty surprised actually, I have our NL node which I think is probably under more load VM wise & my results are pretty standard. 20mb/s has to be some of the slowest i’ve seen on leb.


        [root@site /]# dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync

        Not meaning to advertise, just my input.. very surprised.

          but yeah it’s still slow. especially it’s on 2TB raid1. thanks for your input. and please pray for thailand, we run out of stock in HDD.

        How many customer on RAID 1 to get 20MB/s?

        It’s not too bad IMHO!

    • I’m in the Netherlands as well it appears:

      Did anyone want me to run the other tests? May be the same box as above.

      Seems snappy though.

      • @Yomero – We’re all out of stock so I wouldn’t class it as advertising, and I didn’t mean to in any way. Just interested to see what he was running.

        @Drmike

        Do you have a speed test you could give me? I just want to test throughput on the port see if they’re limiting. We’ve had issues since OpenVZ/SolusVM disabled limiting & we had them re-enable it in the latest beta but it seems to work half the time and not the others.

    france network : please follow this link
    all test IP is from our VPS IP, so you’ll get exactly the same result.

          @drmike I’m sorry about your issue. last time i already put the ISO file and mount it for you, but you already change your mind.

          And i’m still having problem with the UUID (hard drive identifier), everything is ok except the hard drive space. but i’m very sure this is my first priority for updating OS template in all our node.
