  1. Half hour ago I ordered Buffalo Enterprise plan (2GB, 6 cores, 320GB) for $80/year. The registration and payment went well. The server (Centos 6.3 64 bits) was up and running seconds after I finalized the PayPal payment. Now I’m updating the server packages, installing Virtualmin, etc., and I’m going to move some websites to the new server. Hope that everything will be fine as it was earlier.

    Regarding the CPU, my node runs on Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X3440 @ 2.53GHz, a little bit older CPU, launched Q3’09.

    These boxes are oversold and dog slow. Don’t waste your time.

    • If you were located in Buffalo, our node there was performing a re-sync of its RAID disks which indeed affected performance considerably. Unfortunately, this necessary operation took a few days to complete. Clients who inquired about the sluggishness were migrated (if they couldn’t wait) to other data centers without affecting their discounts.

    I ordered one of the Standard-Cached servers in Boston. It is incredibly slow.
