Tags: , , , Date/Time: June 26, 2017 @ 3:40 pm, by Matt Zelasko


Hello! The guys over at OpLink just sent in this offer and we get a ton of requests for storage VPS’s, so I thought this might help some of you out.

OpLink is new to LowEndBox, so if you decide to buy, please help your fellow readers out and leave a review. Their WHOIS is public and you can find their legal docs here. They accept PayPal and major credit/debit cards.

In their own words: 

“We are located in Houston, Texas, USA. We started offering DSL internet access partnered with AT&T back in 1999. Around 2005, we expanded our datacenter foot print into Level3 Communications on the north side of Houston, Texas. We did this because our business DSL clients kept asking for COLO space. Since, we have expanded all three of our datacenter products: Colo, Dedicated Servers, and VPS.  We have about 900sq of space in a private suite inside Level3, over 25 racks.  We use Level3 & Cogent for our Internet backbones. We strive to provide a personal experience and offer custom solutions for the services we offer.
 
All our hardware is custom supermicro servers built in house and owned. We do not lease any equipment. Our VPS services are also private VPN friendly, as long as you are not reselling VPN access. If you wish to resell VPN access we require you purchase a dedicated server or colocate a server. We also just rolled out a Storage VPS plan since we see a lot of people are looking for a VPS account 500GB and 1TB of storage space.”

  1. Hello, Which processor do you provide for KVM Storage VPS? Which DC do you use? May I have a IP for test?

    • The current available node for storage CPU Intel Xeon E5-2609: http://ark.intel.com/products/64588/Intel-Xeon-Processor-E5-2609-10M-Cache-2_40-GHz-6_40-GTs-Intel-QPI. We may adjust our storage node designs in the future depending sales/load. Its all depends on the size of the accounts people tend to purchase will decide how beefy we spec the nodes in the future. We do not like overloading nodes, so every customer gets a good experience. All of our nodes are Basic Accounts are Intel E3 v3 or higher or Enterprise E5 v4 CPUs.

    Hi,
    Will this be a good idea to use it to watch Netflix installing OpenVPN?

    Hmm, The price for the storage server seems a bit steep, the provider I’m currently using charges $110 without discount and I’m paying $50 annually for about the same server – and it’s in L.A. (close to me).

    I had a VPS with Oplink for a few months and they were amazing! Great performance and friendly support. I’m thinking about getting another VPS there, does anyone here know if they have Debian 9 templates yet? Thanks!

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.
