When you search for low end boxes, you may think that services are not up to the mark with these providers. Guess what, You are WRONG, so WRONG indeed. There are a few providers who gives you a top class services, despite their price point.
I have been using Ramnode for almost 6 months by now, had used Rackspace and Amazon EC2 before and I am not a big fan of them except the instant resource modification feature. When I purchased my first box from Ramnode, I was just thinking let’s give a try. And once I started, I totally loved their services. From 1Gbit network to an amazing RAID10 setup that gives you upto 1.3 GB/s in SSD and 800MB/s in SSD Cached VPSes. Here is the result of dd test in one of my SSD boxes.
d if=/dev/zero of=iotest bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync && rm -rf iotest 16384+0 records in 16384+0 records out 1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 1.01694 s, 1.1 GB/s
and here is the result from one of my SSD cached boxes
