  • I was referring to them as beasts -Storage Wise-

    For something that is just for storage them CPU'S are perfectly fine!

    Anyhoo €12/y is a great price!

    Merry Christmas All Of LES!

    To be honest it just made me sad not to see anything under exclusive deals :)

  • What's a reasonable iops limit while being a good neighbor on these servers? I've got a database that needs around 40-50 tps. Best to ask first...

  • Dang it @AnthonySmith! I thought I was done shopping. I planned on using the ServaRICA storage deal for my nextcloud, but now I worried about all the places where I might go that don't have IPv6 enabled yet. This is very tempting...

    It's pronounced hacker.

    Well, I think it would be a bad idea to run a database on a box on spinners specifically made for storage but you are welcome to do it anyway if performance is no t important to you, I don’t know what IOPS 50tps will generate so I can’t really answer that, ideally under 300 avg would be my best guess.

  • Well, If the Doctor, the real DOCTOR, had not offered me a 150GB VM for 10$/y, I may snagged.

    Thanks for the guidance. It would be running it as a slave for backup, so latency isn't important. I've always treated tps and iops the same per this page:

    IOPS, or I/O per second, is measured as the sum of ( r/s + w/s ). If using iostat without the -x option, the iops value is under the tps (transactions per second) column.

    For my DB master this number is 48 averaged over the past 30 days. Not intending to hijack the thread, but if you're measuring iops differently, could you say how?

    If you have done the research I am happy to yeild to your knowledge, I have literally never even considered how many IOPS an sql transaction is, I assumed it would be more than 1 but for no reason.

    If it turns out to be problematic and you don't care about performance I will just limit it for you so no one looses.

    Ahh I was talking about a "disk transaction" not a "SQL transaction", so maybe we are actually speaking the same language. In that case maybe I am well inside your parameters, but if it does end up problematic I'd be happy for you to limit it. Thank you.

    Its a old deal, from a few years ago.

  • Yeha will def grab one. Looking for a mirror as backup. And both my others are same provider so that doesn't work

  • At first I was upset because I was away for the weekend and missed out, but then I realized, it's only €1, and @AnthonySmith is already doing a great service by running this place. In for one at the (still unbeatable) regular price.

    It's pronounced hacker.

    Just sounding out some opinions here...

    I have an Inception London NAT LES VZ7 box with @AnthonySmith on the old 128MB RAM, 350GB bandwidth plan that's been phased out, but recently I've been using more bandwidth and am looking to bump from 350GB to 500GB. All I host on it is OpenVPN and Wireguard.

    I could either get one of the new 256MB RAM, 500GB bandwidth OV7 LES boxes that are €5 a year (which have the same 3GB disk allocation as my current box), or bump up to this €13 KVM which bumps the RAM again and gets me loads more disk space, as well as the benefits of KVM.

    Which is the better choice? Is this KVM Big Storage running on SSD cached or just spinning disks? I would probably look to take advantage of the extra space to make it a Borg backup server or Nextcloud in addition to the OpenVPN and Wireguard setup.

  • AnthonySmithAnthonySmith AdministratorHosting Provider

    Just spinners in raid 5 I don’t think it will really matter for a vpn either way though :)
