Thrust::VPS – £3.95 1GB KVM VPS in UK

Tags: , , Date/Time: April 13, 2011 @ 8:38 am, by LowEndAdmin

Thrust::VPS Just got this email from Thrust::VPS.

KVM Released!

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of our new KVM platform. We are offering to our existing (and new) clients.

You can get the following VPS for £3.95/month — only if you choose to use GBP as your currency. If you use USD it is $7.95, although 3.95 pound is only USD$6.43 on the market today. Here is the ordering link, and the plan detail:

  • 1GB memory
  • 30GB storage
  • 1TB/month data transfer
  • KVM

UK based (RapidSwitch) but Dallas is coming soon. It’s the 3rd KVM offer over the last couple of days. Daniel asked whether there’s plan for a $7/month 512MB KVM plan, and I think he might get more than he asked for! As of Thrust::VPS — I guess there is no need of introduction here. It’s going to be limited supply — only 100 of them according to the email.

The original owner of LowEndBox known as "LowEndAdmin" or "LEA" for short founded LowEndBox in 2008 and created the concept of hosting applications on low resource "Low End Boxes". After creating the roots of the community that we know today, "LEA" stepped aside and allowed others to carry the torch forward.

  2. Tried to signup to test it but i get this:

    MaxMind has deemed your order to be potentially high risk and therefore it has been held for manual review.

    If you feel you have received this message in error, then please accept our apologies and submit a support ticket to our Customer Service Team. Thank you.

    • At least they tell you want the holdup is. We’ve had providers here who don’t notify when their order is held for review.

      Did you get that as part of the signup or via an email?

          Thats if the VPS boots, when it boots ill put it extremes, see how much Minecraft it will run before it crashes, perfect stability test.

    I got the VPS, it won’t boot, it won’t connect to VNC, its broke.

    I actually ordered another VPS from them this morning (Xen PV) and thats having the same issues but its a different DC.

      • Daniel @ LowEndTalk:

        It works like HVM, it uses ISOs and you mount them in Solus then install via VNC.

          I gotta admit, the template feature of OpenVZ and Xen PV is so much simpler. Also some of Thrust’s ISOs are… quite broken.

        • Daniel @ LowEndTalk:

          They use ISOs

          April 13, 2011 @ 5:18 pm | Reply
        • Always OK to use ISOs, but should at least offer templates.

          A) Gets clients online faster
          B) Less issues from clients unable to setup their network because they are not familiar with static IPs

          That’s just my opinion though.

  9. We are very interested to hear people feedback on performance and issues on this. We are releasing this to test that its viable and mature enough. As such we are most definitely considering this beta. As such please take appropriate caution and use it for testing. I wouldn’t recommend it for production yet

      It feels slower than a Pentium 1.

      Also, there’s a lot of random reboots and the VNC keeps dropping out and then reconnects to it fail for some number of minutes afterwards.

        No, the price that I would be given for my internet includes VAT. I do not get to the last stage of the checkout to find it out which is why its off-putting.

        I do however like the company, I already have a VPS with them but that was before they got taken over so no VAT.

    I tried thrustvps back in November by buying 1 xen and 1 openvz in LA. The OpenVZ was utterly worthless with extremely high IO wait, and Rus’ promise to move me turned from 1 day into a week. The Xen was usable, but there were 2 large connection outages which caused me to cancel both.

    I decided to try them again, this time in New Jersey. Unfortunately, it is still riddled with problems. First they assigned me to 7.xn.nj.damnvps.com, which had double the latency to some places in the US. All their other servers didn’t have this problem, so again I had to wait for a couple days to be reassigned to a node with proper routing. When that finally happened, my node went down several times which they blamed on a router failure.

    All these reoccuring problems seem too frequent to just be bad luck. Your results may vary.

          Claiming it back is indeed possible but not what is the normal way to handle for intra-EU purchases

    How are people finding the performance on this? I tried windows 2008r2 and it didnt seem to be stable, so I tried 2003 and it was stable but too slow to effectively use. (Not that I’d expect windows to run fast and good for this price)

    Feedback so far:
    win 2008 bluescreens, win2003 setup doesnt complete fully. Lots of glitches. Connectivity and operation extremely slow. A windows reboot takes like 10 minutes. More of an alpha than a beta. If you’re looking for a windows box this most definately isn’t the place, pretty awful really.

      Yeah, VPS will have to improve dramatically over the next three weeks, installing is very erratic and takes ages, as does a reboot. The broken cdroms don’t help either.

        I take my criticism back a bit, I found that debian 6 works acceptably well

        I’ve often thought disk i/o was the culprit in Windows not working right on this provider, but it seems to be just as good as other providers I’ve used.

    Rus, How come you charged $12.95/month for dallas kvm? you give discount on UK and not in us?

      pretty sure that Rus owns or is one of the owners of the UK Datacenter that the UK servers
      are in (making it cheaper)

    Any discount on dallas KVM?

    I thought price is going to be same and I have waited for dallas KVM.
    That was my bad. :(

    Dallas promo is a bit more than uk kvm. It is still good deal thought.

    Two questions :

    – Has anyone tried / Does someone know if nesting feature is/can be enabled on the host (opening support ticket) ?

    – Any date about final and ready KVM offer ?

    Thank you

      XZed don’t bother it’s not even vaguely usable.

      REMINDER to everyone that signed up for this nonsense, It’s like a vps node running on a battered old pentium3 connected to the net by several pieces sellotape and string.
      Now is the time to cancel before they get another cent for this rubbish!

  41. Dino Suarez:

    Thrust should be ashamed of this offering and just refund everyone.

    I have one that I’ve already cancelled. It is by far the WORST vps
    I have ever purchased. My 15$/yr buyvm VPS performs better. I was compiling something
    on the ThrustVPS and it took 10 minutes, on buyvm it took 30 seconds.

      Yeah I cancelled a few days ago, there is overselling and taking the pi$$, thrust take the pi$$.

      It is unusable. The last time I had a vps with rus was in 2003 with jvds, which was very good, standards have nosedived since then.

    Thrust VPS DO NOT have their own data centre in the UK. They rent from rapid switch. I wish people would do some f****** research before they attempt express their opinions as facts.

    Maybe they co-locate from Maidenhead to Scotland where there trading company is registered at (LOL) – or not. I wish data centres would stop their clients from chatting shit.

    Wise up people, worlds not big enough for idiots.

    • iomart owns Thrust::VPS. iomart also owns RapidSwitch. So basically, it is their own datacentre.

  47. Looks like ThrustVPS is going the way of YardVPS. Just got an emailed update on some maintenance that they’re planning. Not a customer, no legally required contact information, no way to unsubscribe, nothing.

    I hope that’s just an oversight on their part and they realize that such a method of contact isn’t correct and proper.

    • Maybe you were a client of a company that got merged into them? I’m sure they’ll sort it if you submit a ticket.

      July 13, 2011 @ 10:06 pm | Reply
      • …or they could just run a clean list and only send it to their current clients.

        And include contact information, a method of unsubscribing, etc.

        That way they can show that they know what they’re doing. Here in the US, that’s required by law. (Granted Thrust appears to not be a US company but still.)

        Why make me jump through hoops to deal with something that I shouldn’t be getting in the first place?

    Just got their Aquatic plan (OpenVZ).

    They have an awesome CentOS 6 template that gives you virtual swap instead of burst RAM. Works extremely well!

    Here is a quick disk bench:

    [root@vps3 ~]# dd bs=1M count=128 if=/dev/zero of=test oflag=dsync
    128+0 records in
    128+0 records out

      Thats some pretty crappy disk performance. I tried a Thrust::VPS KVM plan some time ago and it
      was the worst performing VPS I have ever purchased. I cant imagine their OpenVZ offering being
      any better.

    Their KVM plans are out of stock, I just thought this was a good alternative. As opposed to burstable ram, VSwap seems to be guaranteed available. The OS also uses free memory as cache, much like a real machine.

    See the OpenVZ wiki for more info

    • Yes i’m fully aware of how vswap works, we got a few nodes running it :)

      I’m just saying, you posted this in their ‘KVM offering’ thread which may throw some people off

        Are you saying you have CentOS 6 templates over at BuyVM with with VSwap now?
