This is the first time we’re featuring VPSDime, however Oktay has featured it a few times on he is a known community member on LET. This is the fourth time we’re featuring Backupsy. Backupsy, which launched in April 2013, has since expanded to a massive eight locations, of which the UK is the newest. Cloudive is exactly a year older than Backupsy, so Oktay and his partners have been along for a while. Oktay and his brands are known for the custom control panel they utilize at all their brands, always fully integrated into the billing area. The VPSDime nodes are dual E5 2620’s with 384GB RAM and 8 x 10K RPM Hard drives in RAID10. Backupsy nodes pack dual X5570’s with 96GB RAM and 12 x Seagate Constellation 3TB hard drives in RAID50. Newer Backupsy nodes use 14 x Hitachi Ultrastar 4TB hard drives in RAID50. All of the Backupsy hardware is owned and colocated at the respective facilities, the VPSDime hardware is rented from Incero. The reviews for Backupsy have been positive and I’ve even found a review for VPSDime! Please share you experiences here as well.

            I will try it for one month, if it’s good, I will continue it :)

    • Our company is registered in Istanbul, Turkey. We are in transaction of opening a new branch in Hong Kong, and that’ll be listed in our websites in the following weeks.

      We are a team of 4, located in Turkey, Germany and the USA. We invest in our own hardware and network gear and we work with 12 total datacenters around the world with an excellent track record.

        Oktay, please post/add your company registration number. so every body could check if it’s correct. Don’t see the reason to trust backups to some one without a company face.

        November 5, 2013 @ 6:17 pm | Reply
        • We really don’t like to post it on public because the name of the company in Turkey is still name of a brand that we no longer own (since 2012) and we respect the new owners’ privacy. We are more than happy to provide the registration number via tickets if anyone interested.

          I will physically visit Hong Kong to figure legal things out in the next weeks and then we’ll post the new company’s name.

          Again, feel free to open a sales ticket and we’ll let you know the company name and registration number in private.

    I have had a Backupsy node at DFW Incero for awhile, and have had zero issues so far. Support has been quick if I needed anything, as I did when I wanted to install FreeNas with a small partition for the OS and the rest for the storage – the request was handled very quickly and courteously. Otherwise, I have seen Backupsy hardware at a data center with my own eyes ;)

        Would I open a ticket to do that for a custom invoice? or just buy two and make a ticket? and is everything merged? or just the disk space? Also, is it possible to say, order two plans now for 1TB now and then buy another plan (at whatever price it happens to be at that time) for more space/whatever resources are merged later on?

        Thanks

    So, Running a few wordpress sites(4) One with 7,000 page views daily. nothing more than that right now though. so total between all 4 sites 23,000 page views(really only a few thousand visitors per day around 1100-1700 with 200-300 uniques)

    Is this Open VZ with VSWAP?

    Currently using another VPS provider Open VZ 32bit, 3gigs of ram – constantly down, i mean every 5 days i’m down.

    If i need support to to configure APC or OP-CACHE/Xcache / on the server is there support for that at least? I dont need support for my wordpress software though i’m all set there.

    Are these nodes oversold? I know it’s openVZ I have delusions of grandeur here, just want to know how fast and how reliable your hosting is in your opinion. Right now my wordpress site is struggling.

    ionCube Loader
    MySQL
    PDO Extension
    mCrypt Libraries with Blowfish Cipher
    mbstring Extension Enabled
    XMLReader

    I am looking to install this self-hosted tracking software: http://www.imobitrax.com/

    Would I be able to on your VPS?

    Also, do you offer any support in helping set this up?

    In all honesty, I’ve never purchased a VPS before, so any support is greatly appreciated. I’m also curious, do I need to purchase cPanel for my requirements? And what OS would I need to choose?

      • If you have more than load of 4 for more than an hour, it restarts, yes. 4 load means you use the full 4 cores assigned to you. These are shared cores, they are not dedicated to you.

          • VPS_Testing:

            jaypeesmith: because that is what they bought. It’s too late to clear that up serverian, if you don’t solve this situation there will be trouble with your paypal account at least.

            Today they started to send out messages like this:

            ________

            In accordance with our fair share and high resource usage policy we have found that your VPS has exceeded its fair share of resource to a level that could cause service degradation for other customers on the shared node. In order to protect all of our customers and maintain high service levels we were forced to reboot your VPS.

            Violation Details – Server exceeded load average 4.
            ________

            What this is saying that is that customers are responsible for their overselling. Nice one.

            You should have some way to dynamically add or distribute resources instead of killing other people’s work at least. One option would be stop selling more at this point.

            Customer support has been so far “others have no problems” or “you can’t prove anything” style of statements.

          • Tom Robbins:

            I was never talking about dedicated cores Damian, maybe re-read my statement. I was talking about vCPU. If the provider links a vCPU to a real core then that’s his setting. But if you sell 4 vCPUs then the client is allowed to use them — whatever dedicated setup is behind the virtual setting. It’s the same with the RAM. It’s vRAM as it isn’t linked to a dedicated area of the RAM. Is the client not allowed to use that completely? If not, then the advertisement is false.

            November 21, 2013 @ 7:36 am
          • Tom Robbins:

            Correction: I was never talking about dedicated cores, jaypeesmith. And Damian, “common sense” if a nice word you throw in there. So that means that the client is also not allowed to use the RAM and the Space as advertised. Because they are also virtual. They are not hard-linked. So you want to say that the client is not allowed to use the advertised ressources because it is common sense that the provider is advertising ressources he won’t provide? Good thing that you don’t work for a provider… wait.

            @severian: But the client is allowed to use the RAM and Space for the full time he pays or is that also just limited to “peak-times”? Because these ressources are also virtual.

    Or… you could give customers like me 3 cores guaranteed. It’s easier to control that on your side. I’m lurking more for RAM anyway.

        • If you use all your associated vCPUs you’ll make a load of 4. Dual E5 2620 have total 24 threads, meaning 24 vCPUs. If 6 VPS in the node uses all associated vCPUs all the time, the node reaches its limit.

          Allocated vCPUs are for bursting. Your applications can use them for short amounts of time (2 of them fully for 2 hours or 4 of them fully for 1 hour).

          This is the case for every VPS provider who doesn’t sell dedicated vCPUs.

          You have to understand that you are in a shared environment. If your applications need to utilize CPUs for extended period of time, you need to purchase a dedicated server.

  35. Can someone please explain to me the following items in the terms of service so that I’d fully understand it:
    1. Your VPS should not have a load of 4 for more than one hour, or your VPS will get restarted.
    2. Your VPS should not have a load of 2 for more than two hours, or your VPS will get restarted.

    What does a load of 4 (or 2 for that reason) actually mean? Is it maintaining the 4 vCPU cores at 100% for the entire length of an hour?

    November 27, 2013 @ 5:30 am | Reply
    • Yes, If you use all your associated cores for longer than an hour, your VPS will get restarted.

      • Hi serverian,
        Thank you for clearing up. I wasn’t sure if we were talking about 4 cores @ 100% load, or something else.

        Best regards,
        Laurentiu

    Their overselling has reached new high. I limited my usage to 3 cores a few days ago and they kept it up for longer than on hour. Then the restart. Then I changed the use to 2 cores only. Server was up a bit longer. Then the restart.
    Explanation from them:
    ::::
    This email notification is being sent to inform you of important information regarding your virtual private server with the hostname testing.

    In accordance with our fair share and high resource usage policy we have found that your VPS has exceeded its fair share of resource to a level that could cause service degradation for other customers on the shared node. In order to protect all of our customers and maintain high service levels we were forced to reboot your VPS.

    Violation Details – Server exceeded load average 2.
    :::::

    They have changed the policies again and you are basically not eligible for nothing guaranteed anymore. It’s really overcrowded now and I think is best for everyone to get their money back as long as it’s still possible.

    • It’s really too hard to understand, right?

      Your VPS should not have a load of 4 for more than one hour, or your VPS will get restarted.
      Your VPS should not have a load of 2 for more than two hours, or your VPS will get restarted.
      Your VPS is configured to send a maximum of 50 emails per hour. If you have justification, please open a ticket and we’ll raise this limit for you.

      Please open a ticket and we’ll refund you!

      • VPS_Testing:

        Serverian you have hopelessly oversold your resources and you keep changing your TOS after making the sales. Please try to understand that most of your customers did not buy 2 cores for 2 hours they bought 4 for 1 month. Also, the claim about 2 cores for 2 hours is not even true I have tried to limit my usage to 1 core and I still get restarts with comments like ‘system average overload’. Why don’t you invest in more resources? At this rate of overselling you are clearly making decent profit. Don’t just try to buy me off, improve your service instead.

        • VPS_Testing:

          Well my justification is that I use this server for CPU and memory intensive calculations. Nothing that was mentioned in your TOS when I purchased , so these are allowed activities. I send out no emails. You don’t have to raise any limits, you can give me 3 or 2 cores, but please do not restart my server. I spent a lot of time setting it up.

          December 4, 2013 @ 1:13 am | Reply
          • You are better off getting a dedicated server for CPU intensive tasks. A VPS will have limitations in that area.

            December 4, 2013 @ 1:32 am
          • Are you insane? You cannot use the CPUs allocated to you all the time. That’s not how VPS hosting works. That’s not called overselling.

            READ: NO ONE WILL GIVE YOU 4 DEDICATED CPU CORE UNLESS THEY ARE CHARGING A HUGE FEE.

            READ AGAIN ^

            December 4, 2013 @ 3:10 am
          • VPS_Testing:

            Serverian, are you insane not taking responsibility for not stating that in your TOS beforehand. You are responsible for that ,like it or not. I you would like to give people lessons how one or other thing should be working, do it on your own time. Meanwhile, solve this situation as responsible businessman.

            You can not hope that your common sense is someone else’s common sense. Next time write your TOS BEFORE you start selling, but you can’t do that can you. You will lose lot of first time customers.

            I got new reason for restart today: Load Average 1 !!! Are you saying that I can not use even 1 core for unlimited time on your servers. How bad is this situation?

            December 4, 2013 @ 7:01 am
          • VPS_Testing:

            About who will give how much cores – You promised me 4 you don’t give me even 1.

            December 4, 2013 @ 7:02 am
          • TOS was always saying fair share usage on the CPUs. We just made it automatically to protect our legitimate customers from abusers like you.

            There is no such rule that will restart your VPS on a load of 1. Stop lying.

            After you saying that, I understand your motive better now. You are just here to screw around and try to make my look bad.

            Why don’t you tell me who you are?

            Here are the loads of both our nodes in Dallas:

            [root@node2 ~]# uptime
            09:46:46 up 14 days, 12:33, 2 users, load average: 12.03, 10.81, 10.64

            [root@node1 ~]# uptime
            09:46:41 up 47 days, 19:28, 1 user, load average: 13.42, 9.66, 10.35

            As you see CPUs are far from fully utilized and we stopped to accept more clients on these nodes to keep the performance good for everyone.

            You have no idea what you are talking about. You are either clueless about technology or a bad troll who try to hurt good people’s reputations.

            I feel sorry for you.

            December 4, 2013 @ 10:49 am
          • Alright Mr Wise Guy! You thought I wouldn’t find you?

            I’ve found your VPS and checked the graphs of load. Here it is: http://i.imgur.com/sWIuHoY.png

            You were using your VPS to render images and running a full desktop.

            Check your load! It’s over 3 and it’s been always above the limit like this.

            Here is another one from our monitoring platform for your VPS: http://i.imgur.com/tPVYaWa.png

            283 notifications sent and you didn’t do anything to limit your resource abuse!

            You were basically abusing your VPS since the moment you got it.

            I’ve refunded your payment and I refuse to serve you.

          And checking server loads is an ‘high five’ achievement for you? Shouldn’t you be doing this at least daily to keep your services up and running? You still have not defined ‘fair share’ in your TOS. It is first time for me to use rented server and I am slightly baffled with the immaturity of this business so far. Running a full desktop is a sin? Using a server for image processing is not allowed? Where is this coming from? This case is not about what you think is right or wrong in general. It’s about making clear what you sell to your customers and taking responsibility for not doing that. Your only solution is revenge and customers end up losing their data. Reminds me of mean girls in high school.

  38. Just to share my current experience with VPS Dime and, by all means, I have no intent on trashing them.

    I’m fairly newbish when it comes to working in a VPS environment but I’ve been experiencing some odd problems with VPSDime. First, I purchased the 6GB deal and played around in the VPS for an hour or two. Mostly, I just have a VPS to experiment.

    I proceeded to do three things:

    1) Update the OS (Ubuntu 12.04)
    2) Install the Xubuntu desktop
    3) Try to install open-xchange (Couldn’t figure it out, lol)

    That night I went to bed and didn’t have a chance to get my hands on the VPS for another few days. Upon checking my email, there were OVER 500 emails letting me know that I had high cpu usage. Emailing support on 11/18/13 (who were extremely quick to respond), they just reminded me of the AUP and I rebooted my server no problem. Smash cut to today and I receive another email telling me that now I’m over my bandwidth allocation and my account has been suspended. Keep in mind, the server has essentially set idle since having to reboot it over the excessive cpu share email deal. Perhaps I have some rogue process sucking down all of my bandwidth or using up all my CPU time, but that seems unlikely. As a customer of another VPS provider (who, apparently, “loves” servers), I’ve never encountered a similar situation and have done almost the same exact steps. An email has been sent to support asking what the heck is up and am currently awaiting a response.

    I will update as new information comes available.

    Ok, I got my data back, but of course he demanded that I apologize to him and tell him that I was wrong before that. It felt like kindergarten. There were few issues with the server, ubuntu 13 image was corrupt, it did not update and upgrade and gave errors. I went with ubuntu 12 instead. Server was much slower than my current 1 core 1gb ram vps. Overall, very bad experience. Immature and unprepared service.

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.
