What makes us different from most of the larger VPS companies, is we have 24/7 support, and most support tickets are answered with hours, not days. We also offer an unbeatable 30 day money back guarantee. To get this special offer, simply put the coupon code "wht" in when you checkout at http://www.thevpsguy.com/whmcs/order.php?step=2&pid=1

With plans this cheap, and this reliable, you simply cannot go wrong! On our higher end plan(has roughly 4x the power of this plan), we offer semi-managed services FREE! Check out our site at http://www.thevpsguy.com now!

Our vps servers are great for any type of website, be it a personal site, a business site, or even a hosting business. Lxadmin allows you to use your vps as a powerful master reseller account, and allows you to create private nameservers, as well as custom resource plans.

An analysis of other VPS hosting provider's hardware:

Each of our 15,000RPM scsi drives is roughly twice as fast for total bandwidth, and seek/latency than a standard 7,200RPM sata drive. Since we use 5 of them in a single server, and raid5, we have the total performance of 4 of those drives(5-1 because of the parity used for redundancy). That leads to a performance of over EIGHT times the performance of a single sata drive(the 256MB cache of the raid controller makes it closer to 9). Also, any single drive in the array can fail, and there will be no downtime at all, and no data will be lost! Now, lets look at what other hosts use:

Scenario 1: NO raid

In this scenario, as earlier stated, no raid is used, and our arrays are almost 9 times faster for reads, and writes. Also, if a drive fails in this array(very likely when IO is put on a single sata drive), you lose all your data, and chances are you wont be able to get a backup.

Scenario 2: raid1 with 2x sata drives
This scenario is the second most common, after a single sata drive. This means that one drive in the array can fail, with no problem. Write performance is that of a single drive,and read performance is almost twice as fast as a single drive, or as fast as one of our scsi drives. This means that our drives are 8 times faster for writes, and 4-5 times faster for reads.

Scenario 3: raid10 with 4 drives

This scenario is the third most common, and involves 2 sets of raid0 arrays, that are mirrored for redundancy. This give the performance of double read, and write speed. Our drives are thus 4 times faster for reads, and writes.


As you can see, no hosts around on WHT can offer faster Disk IO than we do, and has better redundancy. Also, a SATA drive is almost 3 times more likely to fail than a scsi drive, as SATA was designed with the desktop market in mind, so they weren't built for the intense disk IO of an overloaded server. Now, lets compare prices:

A single 250GB 7,200RPM sata drive sells for around $50(which is the most used drive in alot of these hosts)

A single 146GB 15,00RPM scsi drive sells for around $250

Now, we are selling VPS's for less than a 40% premium than standard VPS hosting, and our drives are almost 10 times more expensive than sata drives, and we also use higher quality HP servers, which is rarely used in the hosting industry. Think about this, and decide for yourself, what host you are going to use.

Just curious: where and how does the iSCSI SAN come into play here? What iSCSI SAN do you use?

We use the DL380 with the 6x 146gb scsi drives as the iSCSI target. Since nothing is run on this node besides from iscsi, there is no overhead relative to a iSCSI san enclosure.

Also, after the first week the silver plan will have 15gb space, and the gold will have 30gb. Custom plans are available on request, just submit a ticket.
