What's your uptime?


#1

I have to rebuild a server and noticed the uptime:

For $21/year is an amazing service from Inception Hosting! (too bad he’s not here at HB)

I had a similar one from HostForce but was rebuilt months ago :frowning: and that’s at $12/y.

I know is not even a year, but with those low prices: remarkable.

Just why! :roll_eyes:

when you link an external image, hostballs downloads it locally and prevents you from further editing

@discobot do you take a piss?

Hi! To find out what I can do, say @discobot display help.

I’ve got this bad boy, $2.50/mo VPS from Vultr:

Its actual uptime looks a lil bit different though:


#11

Pretty limited on boxes with solid uptime since basically everything was restarted at the beginning of the year due to spectre/meltdown patching. My record just prior to that was ~1100 days on a Ramnode VPS.


#12

Real man don’t care about security patches.
Real man secure everything themselves! by looking real hard, real hard at the monitor, no hacker will dare.


#13

I don’t patch anything, I just make sure my servers are completely inaccessible.

Pros: never hacked
Cons: never online


#14

Ever heard of jumphost’s concept?


#15

+1 for this. some of these higher uptime boxes are scaring me

Too bad it will be rebooted today (kernel update)


#17

I don’t understand: at least on KVM, don’t you guys with such long uptimes ever do kernel updates?

On OpenVZ, okay, you don’t have to worry about kernel updates.


#18

Not if you don’t care about said VPS.

My trusty €10 Kimsufi: image
Had to restart it due to Dirty Cow, uptime would have been ~1000 days otherwise :frowning:


#20

It will disconnect at 243 days :frowning:
