Did anyone pick up one of the deals from Inception Hosting ? if so what was the performance like? Really tempted by 2-3 of the options

Finally grabbed one of the 2.5TB storage servers from Hosthatch. Was considering a NVMe server, but figured I’d diversify and get something from Inception.

I’ll get a nench for ya in a bit.

Cheers!

I should only pick up one, but fighting temptation to pickup a pure NVMe and a KVM SSD Cached. (The plan was to decrease what I pay out, not get more)


#66

I got a few NVMe over the weekend. Fastest I/O is the one from ImpactVPS. Just barely though.

Finally grabbed an Inception server and managed to booboo (thought I’d clicked the NVMe, but chose the KVM SSD Cached).

Somewhat shocked that the CPU is slower than the Atom in the Online.net box or the 2 core from my Hosthatch Storage box.

Those SSD-cached boxes are cheap but sloooowwww. Disk i/o caps out around 40-50MB/s (dd). Definitely want to go with the NVMe plans…


#69

I feel bad. Got a NVMe VPS, don’t have any use for it… Help me…


#70

Experiment box?
Specs?


#71

KVM - Geekbench
3x Intel Xeon Gold 6128 cores @3.4Ghz

50GB NVMe

#72

Hm monthly xfer? Seattle?
That’s a heck of a good deal


#73

Wow, yeah. From where?


#74

Also how about the tos?


#75

@crotaphiticus @wtfcook

500GB outgoing bandwidth :frowning:

It’s from HostDoc ( @ Dallas, Incero). I asked for a custom deal on BF.
They were also giving out a free “medium” kvm for 2 months each day during the promo for one lucky customer.
I ended up winning day 2 I think, but asked if I could get extra specs instead of the free vps.

I have no use for it, but it’s such a bargain that letting it go is a sin.

EDIT__

Their BF plans still appear to be working https://hostdochost.i.ng/vps.html


#76

Seen awmusic with the setup you describe.
Edited

They’ve slowly been getting worse. Yay.


#78

Damn, is that from impactvps? Or another provider?


#79

Nah, my ImpactVPS slot is great. This is from NFP. Didn’t know how bad they were or about CC using LEB to pimp resellers when I bought it. About 6 months in on a year term. One of the latest replies to my support ticket when I asked to be moved to another node:
“Sorry, currently we don’t have resources in our server. Once done we will be update to you.”

I can post a nench from the impact slot if you want.


#80

Damn, that’s so bad… anyway, yeah, I would love some benchmark for impactvps. Want to see how well their plan is


#81

I’ll post nench for a couple providers
