This is the second time in a row they have appeared in the top three, following a third finish in the 2012 Q4 poll. Since their last offer, OpenVZ Cached plans have had their disk upgraded. RamNode are using servers equipped with Intel Ivy and Sandy Bridge Processors, Samsung, Intel, and Kingston SSDs, WD and Seagate Enterprise HDDs, LSI RAID cards. Looking back at old threads, there has been demand for a west coast location for sometime. It’s nice to see more locations outside of California!

    I got one of their Atlanta 128’s in the last offer. Very impressive and the company seems great. I’m going to resist the Seattle one (must resist…) because I don’t know what I’d do with it, but it’s tempting anyway. The one add-on I’d wish for is the availability of disk space upgrades.

    I’ve used their Atlanta location for about 5 months now and just migrated one VPS to Seattle… (Must… resist… buying… more… RamNode… VPSes…)

    All the locations work great! I prefer Atlanta since it’s closer, but I do need Seattle to vary my backups geographically. Nick has done a great job getting Seattle up and running, and if I have the temptation to buy even more services from him I will do so gladly.

    Until then, must… resist… buying… more… VPSes!

    Just got a Seattle VPS. Ping is much better than I had expected.

    Already own an Atlanta one and I’m rather happy with it. A little annoyed my node had two small instances of downtime in such a short period, about a week, but it’s just a bad coincidence. Nothing wrong on RamNode’s part. Very much worth the price.

    Every VPS node is 1Gbps Port Speed?

    What is the price of addition IP and bandwidth?

    And is there any plan to launch new database at US west and south?

    April 23, 2013 @ 11:45 pm | Reply
    • Every node has a 1Gbps port. Additional IPs are $1.50/mo. Extra TBs of bandwidth are $4.00/mo. No plans to open another location at the moment since we just launched Seattle. Seattle will cover the west coast quite well.

    We are very happy with our Seattle location so far!

  7. Looks like a small typo on the 128MB OpenVZ Cached – should be 50GB.

    Now that’s an excellent offer, congratulations, Nick! :-)

    I own 3 VPS @ Ramnode and I’ve been a really happy customer. I sell high-end webhosting, and my clients are also super satisfied with the service :-)

    • I’ve got three VPSes as well. All solid performers; I couldn’t be happier.

    I have a 128MB SSD in Atlanta from last time and couldn’t be happier with it. I got it for a sandbox VPS, mainly for writing scripts. Being SSD, OS reinstalls are pretty much instant and the network seems very good. Very happy.

    I’m happy with Ramnode. Do limit your torrent client speeds, though! The LEB35 promo code applies to all slots, not just the ones listed here. It’s a lifetime discount. Solid download speeds from UK. Purchased 34 days ago…34 days uptime. If you choose Seattle, update your repos to mirror.pnl.gov (credit Manacit)

    Use my referral link, for science!

    I do recomend Ramnode. Best experience so far for little money. Not one single complaint so far. I hope you can keep up your good service without overselling.
    Thanks!

    Got a 512MB CVZ-E5 in Seattle. I’d been with RAMNode when they were still at Incero but didn’t follow them to ATL since I already had a VPS there.

    I’m definitely glad to be back though:

    RamNode is totally bad a$$. Disk is alarmingly fast.

    I picked a new Seattle instance (annual cached disk) up before the news broke and this offer. Let’s hope the natives of LET/LEB don’t go ruining the service and performance.

    Keep schooling the VPS wannabes Nick_A.

  28. If you are looking for the 512MB OpenVZ SSD plan, please note that the links are wrong. They are pointing to the SSD-Cached plan. Check our website for the correct plan and use coupon “leb35”

  32. Hi! Does LEB35 coupon have an expiration date? I’m interested in a 2048MB SKVM. Thanks!

      For a few more hours, a 40% off coupon is active (“SOMUCHDRAMA”). LEB35 doesn’t have an expiration date. Both apply for as long as you have the vps. See my comment above. And use the referral link while you’re at it =p

    I got a Seattle 128MB SSD vps when the drama coupon was active, but didn’t get around to setting it up til just now. It is absolutely the most responsive VPS I’ve ever used, even though I’ve had some considerably closer in terms of ping time. I just couldn’t imagine running a more-than-slightly-busy database on a spinny disk VPS at this point. This is great.
