Waveride – €5 Monthly 4GB OpenVZ VPS in Vienna, Austria

Tags: , , , Date/Time: April 24, 2013 @ 12:23 pm, by Liam

waverideGerhard, from EDIS, recently got in touch to tell us about the launch of their new subsidiary, Waveride, which provides low-cost high-powered OpenVZ VPS. Will you follow tux and ride the waves?

4GB OpenVZ Vienna

  • 4096MB RAM
  • 4 vCPU Cores
  • 50GB Diskspace
  • 2000GB Bandwidth
  • 1 IPv4 Address
  • 10 IPv6 Address
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM
  • €5/Month | Order Link

Waveride was launched only a few days ago on the 20th April (you may have seen the launch post on LowEndTalk). According to their website, they decided to launch Waveride so that they could provide advanced linux professionals with reliable, extremely low-cost OpenVZ virtual server containers, on high-density, ultra-efficient and economic enterprise grade hardware. The hardware they’re talking about is a mix of Hewlett Packard and SuperMicro Dual Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2630 nodes, with 160+ GB RAM and Seagate Constellation Enterprise SAS2 drives in hardware RAID50 subsystems (LSI). If you purchase one of these, do let us know how it performs!

Waveride parent company EDIS has been in business since 1999 and recently came fifth in our top providers poll. They accept payments via Paypal and Bitcoin. Debit/Credit cards are possible via PayPal. All prices are net and do not include Austrian VAT which is charged at 20% for EU clients who do not have a valid VAT ID. For more information, have a read of their FAQ page.

Network Information:

Nodes are connected to the EDIS backbone and are physically located in Vienna, Austria. You can test their network via their Looking Glass.

        I had 3 VPS’s with them. I would pay for one, and it would be credited to another VPS. They cant keep the billing straight.

        This past week, they would then shutdown my main vps. I wrote them to let them know they’ve shut off the server and told them to turn it back on. They kept going on about a transaction ID and a refund. I finally got angry and told them I dont want a refund (after 24 hours) and demanded they reactivate my server immediately.

        They deleted my fucking VPS and told me not to yell at them. This is income for me! They deleted my server because I got angry when they just randomly shut my server off (not suspended for non payment or anything). Now Ive lost the original copies of everything, and am canceling my services (3 vps’s) and am telling everyone to avoid these rude people.

      That’s some seriously fast I/O. Maybe the machine is empty though, but maybe not. I’m thinking of switching although my current provider is cheaper.

        • 100 MBps = 10 MB/s max
          38 MB/s = 300 MBit/s

          Connection is Gigabit.

        • The two figures seem to be at odds. I agree with the second line. 38 MB/s = 304 Mbit/s. However how does 100 MBps (MegaBytes per second) provide a maximum of 10 MegaBytes per second? The units on both sides of the first equation are the same.

          MBps == MB/s = Megabytes per second.

          • skaviouz:

            Take another look, and I see the typo “100 MBps = 10 MB/s max” but you know he meant “100 Mbps = 10 MB/s max” and it’s actually 12.5, but everyone knows rounding == king.

            Mbps != MBps
            800 Mbps == 100 MBps == 800 Mb/s == 100 MB/s

            Mbps : Megabits / second
            MBps : Megabytes / second

            Take the look at the ‘b’, whether it’s Capital or lowercase.
            This service uses gigabit.

            giga = 1000
            1Gbps = 1000Mbps
            1000Mbps = 125MBps = 125MB/s (looks better than 125MBps)

            Joel is partially correct, 100MB/s > 38MB/s; but 100MB/s requires a gigabit line, as mentioned by ExPl0ReR.

            100Mbps == 12.5MBps ~~ 10MBps (10MB/s)
            1000Mbps == 125MBps ~~ 100MBps (100MB/s)

            Hope this helps.

        • you are right (I was not entirely accurate, because I only wanted to point out that 300 MBit/s would not be possible on a 100 MBit/s link)
          100 MBit/s = 12,5 MB/s

          A vps running on a 100mbps is always going to be too slow because there will be so many people using the port, and it probably wont be dedicated. Always go for the 1Gbit is my advice.

        • 1 Gigabit with similiar specs is very rare on LEB.

          I don’t know, I’ve seen a fe 1Gbit offers with e3 machines which aren’t much worse than this one. If you think about the 100mbps port’s though it is hilarious. They have 33TB max transfer per month, and most vps providers will share that port with what 5 others… So they get 6.6TB each per month, then if they run a minimum of 30 VPS per machine, each VPS could only get 220GB per month. But many people will advertise it as 500GB or more or whatever.

        With the first 100 boxes running and lots of people benchmarking at the same time, I/O speeds slightly decreased.

      I think the price is probably about right given the power of the machines. They’ll be running loads of vps’s per machine, probably more than 100. But the machine should be able to cope.

      • @Hyb: target is around 150 plan per hostnode (depending on the size of the plan)
        We run linux vserver containers with up to 180 containers per node – depending on the actual workload
        targets are a system-load < 5 on a multi-processor system and less than 5% soft-interrupts.

    • William:

      Minecraft is *VERY* CPU dependent and only singlethreaded – E5s are very low clock (which is thus bad) and E3/i7 are very high (4Ghz+ with Turbo) (which is good), so it is not recommended to run it on these.

    Gerhard hätte eine Frage ich lebe in Österreich Wien müsste ich die Mehrwertssteuer bezahlen oder entfallen die bei mir?

    April 24, 2013 @ 7:43 pm | Reply
    • @WhiteWolf: Wenn Sie in Österreich leben, kommen zum Preis noch 20% MwSt. hinzu. Beim kleinsten Produkt sind das dann EUR 5,– zzgl. 20% MwSt. = EUR 6,– total. Alle EU-Bürger müssen die MwSt. leider bezahlen. Alle die außerhalb der EU wohnen, brauchen das nicht.
      Viele Grüße, Gerhard

        Just for the sake of having a translation and some details for others here, WhiteWolf asked if he pays VAT as he lives in Austria, and yes he does:

        Tax (VAT at least) is very easy in the EU.
        All EU citizens and companies without EU VAT number have to pay EU VAT, all others (including the EEA (Iceland/Switzerland/Liechtenstein)) do not pay it.

        If you have an EU VAT number (no dear Portuguese friends, this is *not* your citizen tax number, please stop opening tickets) you do not pay it unless you are in the same country (For us, Austria).

        If you are in the same country + have a VAT number you pay the VAT to us, we give it to our Government all 1-3 months and you reclaim it from them.

    • Macedonia is not in the EU so VAT will not apply. Only if you’re from an EU member state.

  17. Looking forward to testing this, waiting a bit on activation – but I know it’s way past business hours in Austria. Any way to upgrade / pro-rate upgrade to another package once signed up?

    Thought there was only one plan.

    I have purchased a VPS from waveride almost 1 week before and my feedback is i will strongly recommend it to everyone. the facts i like about waveride is they provide high configuration server on very low price and the uptime is also not bad. i mean rebooting to install updates are acceptable by everyone… in these past few days i did not noticed any long downtime for any reason. I have used 1and1 and godaddy also and they put alot of regulations on server resources even if u take a high ram server. having a high ram doesnt mean u will get alot of server performance. with waveride i can see that while importing database or using any server resources there is no restriction on server resources.

    I strongly recommend waveride if u are planning for a vps.

    I’m a customer at WaveRide for almost two weeks now. I don’t like it very much, and considering OverZold (Prometeus). They went down first this week because of a DDoS-attack. I asked them before, when the connection seemed to drop. It could be my problem, so they won’t help. When they received the attack, they told me it was a DDoS-attack. No worries, sir.

    Sure not. This morning, I woke up without having listeners. Wait… stream is dropping again? What? I’ve been offline for effin’ 1.5 hour?! Then I’ve had a look at the uptime. Ooh, woops, they rebooted it. Why don’t I know that? Oh, well. They didn’t e-mail me. I contacted Wave Ride Emergency again, but they are kind of slow and keep asking questions of instead solving it.

    Asking EDIS on Twitter, they’re being kinda rude. They think they can make a joke on being offline. No, that’s NOT funny. I have to keep in mind I’m on a shared host and I have to ask my VPS-neighbours if they can spare me. EDIS asks me if I don’t think I overreact. Are these guys taking hosting seriously? Getting a VPS at WaveRide is on “best effort base”, which means, no uptime guaranteed. But simply rebooting it without a warning could be dangerous, as it might lead to old backups. I don’t want to discover at my own way that the server is offline again.

    So, if network connection keeps dropping, or they restart the whole server for a small problem, I think I will go to OverZold. I’m not very keen on this ‘Austrian sense of humor’.

        Sorry Gerhard, I don’t know, but this was NOT meant for support issues. I just reviewed your support, and in my opinion, WaveRide is lacking it. So I reviewed it. My review wasn’t a way to force any comment of WaveRide on my specific problem.

        And I took your advice. Will go to Prometeus. As soon as I moved all my services and content, I will close my account on here. Again: maybe EDIS should leave the humor aside (as I cried out of bad service).

    I’ve bought one of these some weeks back, I’ve left it OFF because I had no time for configuration. Yesterday I have noticed that my vps was ON with more than 2 days uptime (security logs actually had entries older than one week so I guess that my vps was (re)started multiple times since my shutdown), but my Control Panel had no entries for Boot or Restart. Anyone else noticed this behavior?

    • Hi!
      we had to restart the host-system. Once right after we went online with Waveride due to a problem with the infrastructure and another time 3 days ago.
      Looks like your server was restarted upon the system-boot (seems to be a normal solusVM behavior too boot up everything that exists).

      Cheers,
      Gerhard @ Waveride

        I love your service but this sucks, you leave your system poorly configured knowing that is OFF and then you find that it was started by someone else and that some russian guy was trying to steal the cookies. Can’t you email the customers when the status of the system changes and when you are doing maintenance?

    First impressions:
    – Stupid of me not to purchase RIGHT AWAY!
    – Server set up nice and promptly after paying via PayPal. (No signup required and you will pay in your own currency, in my case the exchange rate was £5.12 (with VAT) but they charged me £5.32 (no biggie!)
    – Have done re-installs on other VPSes and they have taken around 5-10minutes but I installed CentOS 6 (x64) in a matter of seconds.
    – Faster than doing an install on a KvM for sure.
    – Fresh install is fairly minimal (CentOS 6) – 622.41 MB of 50 GB Used / 49.39 GB Free
    – Bandwidth isn’t bad at all! – 0 KB of 1.95 TB Used / 1.95 TB Free (I usually get around 1.75TB from a 2TB deal.)
    – System idles at 24.11 MB of 4 GB Used / 3.98 GB Free
    – Options to enable/disable TUN/TAP and PPP
    – Hostname is changeable
    – Reverse DNS on both IPv4 and IPv6

    Overall this is a good first impression of what seems to be a service that is too good to be true!
    I’ll post updates on this as I go.

      Mike, did yours have networking out of the box? My VPS doesn’t connect to the internet at all and I’m not experienced enough to know if it’s something I can fix.

      June 12, 2013 @ 11:37 am | Reply
      • Mike:

        Indeed it did have networking.
        Do you have access to the vps control panel? You should have received an email with the details.
        I found that the Tuwien (a university in Vienna) has a mirror that has the best latency but worst uplink so I disabled that repo in yum, I don’t think it affects Ubuntu though.
        The best tools that you can use to manage your VPS are:
        – PuTTY: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html
        – WinSCP: http://winscp.net/eng/index.php

        The serial console can be used but it is generally meant for when the VPS is not accessible via SSH/PuTTY.
        What you should do when you get onto SSH is type:

        apt-get update

        Sorry if I can’t help you further, William or Gerhard @ Waveride/EDIS may be able to help you further even though they have a no support policy. They’re very friendly indeed :)

      Waveride has no UK servers, that is only EDIS directly.

    Is erotic/porn allowed? I mean nothing like zoo or even cp. Only soft erotic and light pron.

      Not an issue at all, no restrictions on viewer age verification in Austria either (no matter if soft or hardcore).

    Hello, does your 4GB OpenVZ Vienna VPS have the following?

    PHP Version 5.3+
    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?

    Thank you so much!

    Please clarify your terms ” Ressource Limits: You are expected to use less than 25% of your assigned CPU cores for 95% of the month, the left 5% can be used to burst. ”
    What happens if we override those 25% ? Are you suspending our accounts ?
    Also please tell us if you allow legal porn in NL and AT . Thank you !!!

    I wasn’t able to pay on time and my service was suspended today. I have paid but still it is showing status as suspended. Does “no support” means no service as well? Invoice #60063344.

      After around 39 hours and service is suspended after payment. Thinking about raising a dispute with Paypal. No support doesn’t mean no service.

    The worst VPS I’ve ever bought. The network bandwith is worst than a 56K modem.

    Awesome offer…..
    However………..
    I have a stupid “extra” question to EDIS…..
    I need a fast line, but only sometimes. For example, this weekend was the 31c3 CCC congress, and they had very fast servers ^^… (only this weekend)
    I would need a sort of “Internet Cafe” in my hometown, Graz, which would offer atleast 1Gigabit up/downstream to the CCC server farm if you know what I mean ….
    And I’d be glad to pay for that….
    Anything like that possible, perhaps for some local oldschool people like me? ;)

    Kernel is 2.6.32, you have to manually apt-get install a lot of things to get going.
    Network performance is just terrible. Of the promised gigabit line, nothing remains.

    I must take back my comments.

    Now I suddenly have 8.8 Megabyte per second FTP speed to TU Graz.
    Suddenly the net is so much faster; hell knows why.
    However, the ping to, for example, http://ftp.tuwien.at is still larger than 40 miliseconds. Curious.

    Something is wrong at waveride.
    4 days afer payment service was still unavailable – no access to control panel and ssh unresponsive. Then i asked for help but no answer to my tickets. Finally, requested cancellation after contract period – they closed my tickets without answer and still no access. I was ripoff, unbelievable. Waveride was recommended by several friends that never had a problem. What happened to them?

    total garbage as of November 2018. purchased one in a hurry to alternatively route some traffic/firewall into another server as they had supposedly fixed iptables support “permanently” (reported at some other forum). yeah server was deployed very fast, near instantly, and the three commands I typed, yeah they popped pretty fast too, but that was all about it, it came out with no iptables full support so pretty much useless to me. furthermore I tried to reinstall it a couple of times to see if some of the other templates came out with full iptables support and just after a bunch of reinstall the vps broke beyond belief itself, now it’s just offline and it doesn’t even have resources (memory and probably cpu) allocated sitting there uselessly at the solus panel, no warnings, no error messages, no anything, just random useless garbage sitting there. opened a ticket in the morning still unanswered so long story short, 24 hours of useless downtime just on the first day and growing for no apparent reason at all yet.

    anyways to be honest, it doesn’t even look like they care at all, I mean it looks like this just keep being the same stuff they built up back in 2013, no updates, no improvements, no anything. no wonder five years later running the same ages old stuff the thing is now broke/outdated beyond belief, so be warned of this provider, I don’t even want to imagine how things are going to go from here on.

  • 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.
