EDIS Christmas Offer - 128MB €22.69/Year KVM & 256MB €3.79/Month KVM located in 12 different countries

EDIS, who were founded in 1999, have been featured on here many times before and we even reviewed one of their services. With this promotion, you will get 5% off regular prices (recurring) as well as double the normal amount of diskspace and it is available in a choice of 12 different locations. EDIS also offer services in Chile and Hong Kong but these plans are an additional €2 and €2.50 a month each and thus exceed the LowEndBox $7 limit. Austrian servers will be deployed in their fully owned datacenter in Graz, Austria.

If you’re located within the European Union and are not VAT registered, you will have to pay VAT. Servers purchased in Iceland, will come with 50% less traffic – so the KVM Micro plan in Iceland will only have 250GB and the KVM Smart will have 500GB Bandwidth. Isle of Man servers are €1 more per month, so it will instead cost €34.69/Year ($45.65) for the KVM Micro and €4.79/month ($6.30) for the KVM Smart. For more information, you can read their full terms and conditions here.

    Great bunch of guys, was on the phone recently with one of their sales-people discussing deployment of my mailserver, got good recommendations. My only concern is their Austrian location which has higher latency and slower speeds than any other location (multiple speedtests and traceroutes). If this is fixed i am definitely getting a dedi in Austria.

      We get new upstreams in spring 2013 (From Vienna) which should solve a lot of issues and give us more control, this als likely includes a VIX port and ReTN Transit for Russian/Ukrainian/Scandinavian users – let’s see.

      • massgrav:

        Sounds good, hopefully it will be a huge improvement as to what it is now. At this moment i cannot get any speeds over ~20Mbps from your speedtest. I am looking forward to seeing IPv6 implemented in Iceland as well.

        • William:

          I can get 600Mbit to aynwhere from the Austrian testfile… (even to the US and Asia) – 20Mbit is too slow, can’t be an issue on our side (probably UPC though)
          Iceland has fully working IPv6, just not native – no way to change this for us, we need to wait for the datacenter.

        100MB .at speedtest from multiple locations give me these results, not sure what kind of magical routes you take tho.

        100,000,000 523K/s in 2m 48s

        100,000,000 1.91M/s in 69s

        100,000,000 329K/s in 3m 49s

        100,000,000 639K/s in 2m 5s

        100,000,000 367K/s in 2m 29s

        This is obviously pretty far from 600Mbps.. but yeah

      December 17, 2012 @ 10:31 am | Reply
    • @Lucas Hi! what exactly do you mean by “compared with real locations” ?
      All our locations are real locations – real enterprise grade hardware in datacenters around the globe. Our products have nothing in common with “virtual IP”-services. EDIS offers pure LPS (local presence services).


      December 17, 2012 @ 10:50 am | Reply
      • Lucas:

        Why lots of different locations have same range of IP addresses? Most of them begin with 37.235 or 158.255 How it possible? It only mean all assigned in one location, in Austria Seems only Sweden has real IP from Portlane AB :)

        December 17, 2012 @ 3:44 pm | Reply
        • William:

          We use our own IPs for easy usability and security, in BGP anything as small as a /24 can be routed to different locations/ISPs.

          You can easily see this when you trace hk.edis.at de.edis.at etc which goes to the respective country.

          December 17, 2012 @ 5:42 pm | Reply
      • Lucas:

        So William just confirm about”virtual IP” used for the mask real IP from all these locations :)

        December 17, 2012 @ 8:46 pm | Reply
        • massgrav:

          Not sure about the logic there, but no. If they own their own addresses they can simply route them to wherever they wish.

          December 17, 2012 @ 9:24 pm | Reply
        • William:

          No, we have services in all these countries – not virtual (like for example OVH).
          Just traceroute hk.edis.at or de.edis.at and you clearly see it.

    Slow, unreliable, very unfriendly support.

      Not my impression, and I like the CP, except the “reloading rdns” dialog, which I’ll admit is a bit annoying and should be dropped. Austria seems the most unstable location too, weirdly enough, but Sweden, Poland and Spain have been great. Poland some issues lately, but overall one of the best hosts here.

          Yes, Spain and Poland have known issues with the DC – We are working on them.
          (And it is reachable fine, just packetloss).

          Chile is not in our control, it’s South America AND low cost after all – You can’t expect wonders for this, in special not with the TelMex infrastructure.
          Chile was never thought to be used internationally (which would be not very intelligent either) but for Chile/Argentina/Mexico and South/Central America (basically any country with TelMex transit/ISP).

          We, existing users, are getting oversold VPSs with overloaded disk I/O. We can contemplate from time to time the processes with D status (blocked by disk access) and wonder why we choose Edis for production. It’s OK for testing, but for production I will have to move and will not choose Edis again. No matter what promotion.
