    64 bit VPS's Any interest?

    We are playing with the idea of sponsering some work to help bring 64 bit VPS's to the market. However just looking for a bit of market reasearch and see if the demand is there (yet). Performance wise we wouldn't expect huge leaps from 32 bit but it would be cool to say

    Mods: If wrong forum please move

    No idea as we have no idea how it will scale. Finger in the air 25% more but would have to wait and see.

    If there is not going to be much of a performance boost and the price will be 25% higher, there won't be much demand for it IMHO. If you need more than you can get out of a 32bit VDS, with EV1servers, ServerMatrix, FastServers and Nocster at the prices they are, I'd just step up to dedicated. (I'm on VDS now BTW).

    I tend to agree. Unless you specifically want to mmap multi-gig files, you'll move to dedicated if you need more performance.
    Game Servers are the next hot market!
    Slim margins, heavy support, fickle customers, and moronic suppliers!

    I think for now the real benifit of 64bit hasn't been realized.

    The only true uses for 64bit at the moment that I know of are tremendously fast database access and using huge amounts of memory very efficently.

    IMHO these don't fit VPS systems very well.
