    Just curious, why did you go with 16GB of ram even with SSDs?

    • John:

      It was just a decision we made when deploying the node for lower density.

  4. Do they provide the mikrotik RoS of and how the quality of bandwidth/hop since I’m in Indonesia.

    • John:

      We have Mikrotik in our list of ISOs.

      Choopa is generally regarded as having very high quality bandwidth, though you may benefit more from a VPS on the west coast as you are in Asia.

      It’s our provider’s rule, nothing much we can do about it.

        Choopa not allowing IRC? Are you sure? Because Choopa themselves host one of EFNet’s largest servers.
