Does Anyone Have Experience with FSIT?

Looking for a new, tiny VPS in Switzerland. Stumbled across FSIT.com and like to ask if anyone has experience with them in term of uptime, network etc.? Or are there better alternatives with custom ISO support?

Vultr, Lunanode allow custom ISO but without Switzerland node :thinking:

Well, looking for Switzerland :wink:

You could have a look at https://vps2day.com (not sure about custom .iso though). Also check out https://swissmade.host

Will take a look, but swissmade host looks sketchy. Also only 12 month contracts

Why do they look sketchy? 12 months contracts are not so uncommon among swiss providers.
Check our https://cloudscale.ch and https://exoscale.com (I think @Jarland recommend Exoscale once).

Yeah, was actually about to say if you don’t mind trading ISO support for cloud image support, I highly recommend them. This is what they support for custom images:

I had a service with transcom before they were bought by FSIT, however never with them direct. with transcom I never had problems, though the routing/peerings weren’t always optimal.
Seems like nearly everything directly in swiss is utterly epxensive. what exactly are you looking for?

Because they are probably Solarcom. And Solarcom is involved in sketchy things: https://ripe77.ripe.net/presentations/134-RIPE77_Anti_Abuse_WG.pdf (Page 45)

Exoscale is out of the scope because of their strange bandwidth billing, if they would offer X amount of transfer per month (instead per hour) they would be my choice

also just found my old topic around CH/AT VMs on LET: https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/110241/vps-in-at-and-ch

though you might need a moment to get in :rofl:

and keep in mind it’s a few days back, however, there are several other providers mentioned, that might be worth looking at. incloudibly/coinshost seem to offer the most bang for the buck at the moment, but I can’t tell about custom ISO stuff, so probably best to ask pre-sales :wink:

Will do! Also will keep FSIT in mind.

I use FSIT and haven’t had any downtime. Its also pretty well connected, considering the price. Definitely a +1 from me for FSIT

Ordered one small VPS from FSIT, looks like it’s pretty old hardware. Also slow disk speed. Maybe will send a ticket to get migrated. Had one question, support was fast - even on sunday. Custom ISOs are no problem. Network looks decent, nothing fancy either (at least it’s okish in europe), not much more to expect within this price range in Switzerland i think. Little benchmark for those who are interested. As long as its stable, it could fit my needs for proxying and uptime monitoring.

You might want to check out https://datacenterlight.ch/ or https://ipv6onlyhosting.com/ from the same company. Not sure if they offer custom ISOs though. But super friendly staff and they have a decent network.
