Review of VPS19 from KiloServe
Review: VPS19.
Provider: KiloServe.com

Hello everyone. I got this VPS, I think, 1-2 weeks ago. In this time, I've tested it enough and now it's the time to review it. It's actually a pretty good package if you want to run low-ram consuming gameservers or apache/nginx. It's located in Los Angeles, California. Currently I'm running my gaming news website on it. It's running very smoothly with ram usage under 100MB. I've also installed the SA-MP Gameserver on it. And it's running great. The ping is good as well. But I don't recommend this VPS if you want to run a GUI Program, XFCE, Gnome .etc. Probably because it does not have enough ram. XFCE can run on it but you'll see a lot of problems while running it related to "cannot allocate memory", "kernel memory exhausted" .etc. I'm pretty much convinced with the package specs.

Disk space: 15GB RAID10

Dedicated RAM: 400MB
Burst RAM: 112mb

RE: Review of VPS19 from KiloServe
Cool VPS .
Although I can't believe my VPS2 can beat this kiloserve VPS , it's funny how it's a Hexa-Core CPU , but only 1 core is being used for the VPS...

Set aside scarcasm , it's a good VPS . Only problems I see are the DiskIO and the Virtualisation software ( OpenVZ ) . OpenVZ doesn't allow you to set more virtual ram using HDD , and KVM has better virtualization . I would run a website off that VPS , it only has 512mb of ram so SA-MP probably won't work , even if it does it would lag and eventually crash .

Anyways , congrats !!Wink

Thanks FreeVps and PyramidServer for the VPS2 !

Step 1 - Get a domain .
Step 2 - Redesign the website
Step 3 - Configure nginx
Step 4 - ENJOY !~

262 MB/s is slow for you? o_0

I wouldn't say KVM is better than OpenVZ. They use different virtualization technologies and perform better at different aspects. Technically speaking, OpenVZ has better performance overall since it has lower overhead.

Also, SA-MP will run fine on it.

RE: Review of VPS19 from KiloServe
I totally agree with f8ll. SA-MP can run on a 128MB OpenVZ VPS lol.

RE: Review of VPS19 from KiloServe
using hard disk space as ram is a terrible idea. do you want your web pages load super slow?

RE: Review of VPS19 from KiloServe
No, but it's a good idea to have something to fall-back into in case something happens and takes up all your RAM.

RE: Review of VPS19 from KiloServe
why the burstable ram is smaller than the dedicated ram?

RE: Review of VPS19 from KiloServe
There is:
Dedicated RAM + Burstable RAM = RAM
So, it has 400 MB dedicated and 112 MB burstable, so 512 MB RAM.

Thanks Carstensz Pyramid Server and FreeVPS very much my VPS18.

RE: Review of VPS19 from KiloServe
KiloServe's I/O Speed always amaze me. I don't have technical knowledge, but I'm currently running a WP site with Webuzo on OpenVZ and 90MB RAM used, while in KVM it was more than 120MB. Don't have any idea why.

RE: Review of VPS19 from KiloServe
with kvm, you need to run the basic processes to run a linux distro, using more ram just to be turned on. with openvz, the server can just use the hosts services and save the unnecessary ram. with a vps 3 from here, i was able to run it with only a few megabytes of ram.
