    ioflood far beyond my expectations xen vps

    Hello guys, i have completed my first month with ioflood and i would like to tell you my experience with them.

    Setup Time
    At the beginning the setup time was longer than what i expected, the vps was manually created, and i received the login details around 24 hours after i paid. The vps was created correctly with the specs that i paid for.

    Its Xen 3G RAM guaranteed, 25G HD, 1/4 of 1 core guaranteed, burst to 1 core only. Bandwidth of 5mbps. Paying 34$ monthly.

    Performance
    At first when i received the vps with access to 1 core only i was afraid that it won't be enough for the site that i run. I have experience with previous xen vps with 4 and 8 cores.

    But to my surprise this vps handles everything i throw at it, im running apache, with php, teamspeak and iodine.

    At peak times it handles 350+ httpd processes, 80+ php fcgid processes, and all this below 2.0 load.

    Bandwidth
    I had 5mbps which will go around 1.2TB per month, i have contacted them to request more bandwidth and they were kind enough to provide me more bandwidth but always with the 1TB per month limit for the same price. The link is really good, no packet drops, i understand that it is located at phoenixnap, so i have nothing to complain regarding bandwidth.

    Uptime
    This is the best uptime that i've had this far, with a big list of providers that i have tried before. The vps had to be rebooted due to the change of bandwidth allowed, but i had 30 days with uptime.

    Support
    Well as you may guess the vps is unmanaged, but i am ok with that. It has no access to external console, no access to vps control panel. You only receive the access to the client portal, and the ssh access to your vps.

    I have contacted them a couple of times, and Gabriel has always replied within 5-10 minutes, with a helpful argument.

    Conclusion
    I hope that this will not be only a 1 month experience but a long term experience, i will definitely continue with this host. If you compare their price with the XEN competitors, you will find it very competitive, and i was afraid at the beginning to go with them because of the few reviews, but i am really glad i did.

    I am not sure but i believe that they have money back guarantee, if you are looking for a Xen provider with guaranteed resources, i would definitely recommend them.

    Normally i put a rating from 1 to 10, but i will give this guys an overall 10. The only thing that would be great to have is out of band console, or control panel.

    Hope you find this review useful,
    Regards,

    Thanks for the kind words and thorough review. I can confirm that we do offer a money back guarantee. Hopefully will be offering a control panel soon, but you're right, there isn't one right now.

    The ip space is provided by HE, our primary bandwidth provider, which is the reason the ip shows that.

    Hope to keep you as a happy customer for a long time

    Hello guys, i am happy to share with all of you that i just paid the 3rd month of service with IOFLOOD and it continues to be the best Xen Server that i've had. Best Performance and reliability.

    Please if you prefer Xen over Virtuozzo or OpenVZ, give this provider a test. Remember that they do not have control panel, but who needs it if the server is always up ?

    Thank you IOFLOOD

    Nice review. Pretty cool that you're getting that level of performance on their "a 1/4 CPU burstable to 1 CPU offering" - must be a nice box underneath.

    I'm intrigued by ioflood's SSD offering - haven't seen that much in the industry. For the right applications that could be really cool.

    Yes i am aware of that don't worry, if you request them to change it they will do it with no problems. But in my case i want to give them this free publicity

    I thought their plans started at $19.99 per month, though.

    yeah I should probably update that as it's out of date. That said, we might be offering a cheaper option with less ram at some point, so either way having a price in the rdns isn't the most up to date kind of advertising
