A Homage to Servers

On Deepawali day, I thought of taking a break from the usual set of reviews and benchmarks and have some fun. I fired up Vlogeasy, app for making this short video.

Review of VPS’es from Nexusbytes- Part I

In this post, I will do a quick review of VPS by Nexusbytes. Below I am posting the results from two test setups that user @seriesn from Nexusbytes provided. They are a provider out of Middlebury, Connecticut and they contacted me through LowEndTalk requesting for my review. While I am still a learner and a beginner, I cannot let go of a chance to test out a VPS, with some new learnings (as always) along the way. Let us dive into the review right away.

Running nench.sh on 10 VPS’es – KVM, OVZ, NAT

  • VPS Review
  • 18 min read

Over the past few months thanks to LowEndtalk (and the frown of my spouse), I have managed to gather a collection of Virtual Private Servers (VPS’es). Ten at the last count. Till April this year, I did not even know what a VPS was. Five months later, I am writing a post comparing the performances of different VPS’es, some of which are  KVM, others OVZ and the rest are NAT devices.

Mini-review: IntoVPS, Cluj

This is the first ever benchmark that I had run on a iIrtual Private Server, back in July 2019. The VPS service by Inception Hosting in fact was my third VPS (fourth if you include Gullo’s NAT) but it was an exciting time for me. This was my first “Toy” to play around with- a trial VPS for ten days. I ended up getting a refund, only to top up my account again. IntoVPS have a good service, they seem to be stable provider. Read my experience with them below. If you would prefer to dive straight into the mini-review, you can skip this section and head straight to the “Nuts and Bolts” segment**
