LVPSHostingMarcus, from LVPSHosting, has sent in another exclusive offer for LowEndBox readers. Compared with their last offer, this once has double the amount of vSwap, access to an extra vCPU core and 200GB more bandwidth.

  • 1024MB vSwap
  • 2 vCPU Cores
  • 50GB Diskspace
  • 1000GB Bandwidth
  • 100Mbps Port Speed

Servers are running the Intel E3 1240 CPU, @ 3.30GHz, and have multiple ‘enterprise grade hard drives’ in Hardware RAID 10. IPv6 is, unfortunately, not available. As well as free weekly backups, ‘managed support’ is included. What managed support covers was not quite clear as their order page states an additional $40 for “Fully Managed Option”. The few reviews that were left on their last post were all good. If you become a customer, or already are one, do share your experience with us below.

    I would prefer a 256MB KVM at this price.
    Honestly, for OpenVZ, this is not a competitive pricing on LEB.

  2. Why do you think that KVM with 256 MB RAM will work better than our OpenVZ VPS? Did you ever try our services? Did you ever find any review on the internet about our OpenVZ virtual servers where someone is complaining about the speed and the performances? OpenVZ will work slower than KVM only if the host machine is oversold, and we never do that.

      I trust you don’t oversale, as to the pricing model is sufficient to support undersale running.

      But talking about OpenVZ, the disadvantage is far more than oversale only. OpenVZ, strictly is not a “private virtualization”, it is just a container, which means that the users in an OpenVZ node are lack of freedom. For example, many modules such as IPSEC and mppe are not available. This make the server less useful at LOW END LEVEL (we are not talking about production, how much chance do you think people will put their heavy load main production server in an OpenVZ node?).

      Having an abusive neighbour could be devastating on OpenVZ, because isolation is not that great. The files are not stored in perfect shape — they are just inside a folder of the node, but not a whole image or anything else. Occasionally Some IPSEC modules just stop working for no reason, and sysctl always have problems for certain parts. Also, people lose the freedom of using BSD or Windows on OpenVZ.

      …And lots lots more.

      I have over ten VPSes from different providers, half of them are on low-end level, but have of them are not. As my experience from being with different virtualization types, if now I need to purchase a new VPS, I will definitely take a 256MB KVM rather than a 512MB OpenVZ.

      Also, compare the number of comments under this offer with other offer’s (one week now), does that answer your second question?

      P.S. what my “competitive pricing” means is that people don’t consider OpenVZ seriously, so are not likely to pay $7 a month for a 512MB OpenVZ.

    I get pretty impressive test speeds to the US West Coast, which is rare for an EU provider.

    I don’t need another VPS but am definitely considering.

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
