Joyent

I've had good experiences running high-traffic, low-CPU jobs at Joyent due to the incredible 20TB/mo included (with a single account, last I checked, not per-instance). Troofmaster 14:57, 24 March 2013 (EDT)

Been running a extra small instance for a few weeks. No uptime or connectivity issues. A decent service but the problems listed below make this a second not a first choice. omf_ 0:44, 27 March 2013 (EDT)

  • Extra small Linux instance
    • $0.03 per hour
    • 512 MB RAM
    • /dev/vda1 9 GB ext4 partition, minus 750mb for the operating system
    • /dev/vdb1 15 GB ext4 partition. mounted as /data/
    • 1 cpu
  • Small Linux instance
    • $0.085 per hour
    • 1 GB RAM
    • 30 GB storage
    • 1 cpu
  • 20 TB outbound per month free (and it's FAST)
  • Debian 6.x and Centos

Problems

  • No support for installing custom Linux distributions. Meaning you have to install everything you need every single time since you always start off with one of their fresh installs.
  • Cannot find a way to add more hard disk and RAM to a running instance.
  • The wiki is currently down :(
  • Some scripts on there site are just broken links :(
  • No way to view your current account balance or hours usage.

linode

  • Linode 512
    • $19.95 per month
    • 512 MB RAM
    • 24 GB storage
    • 2 TB per month
  • Linode 1024 (1gb)
  • Linux
    • $39.95 per month
    • 1 GB RAM
    • 48 GB storage
    • 4 TB per month



BuyVM (VPS)

  • OpenVZ plan
    • $15/year
    • 128 MB RAM (burst to 256 MB)
    • 15 GB storage
    • 1 CPU
    • 500 GB per month bandwidth
  • CentOS/Debian/Fedora/Ubuntu
  • OpenVZ means you can't change the kernel
  • Burstable RAM is availible as long as there is capacity on the host node, which seems to be almost all the time
  • Additional IP v4 addresses $1/month, but they probably won't let you cycle them to avoid bans
  • Additional bandwidth $2.50/month for 1TB extra with no maximum
  • Larger plans also available with similar pricing
  • Plans often go out of stock, especially the smaller ones
  • IRC support and information about stock in #Frantech on irc.dairc.net
