    * SG customers will be subject to GST.
    * Interested parties, as we are based in Singapore, please conduct your own traceroutes to ensure that you are satisfied with the routing and overall latency. We have fairly good routes and latencies to most countries in Asia.
    * If you're wondering what's the deal with the minuscule amount of bandwidth available, you are probably not aware that bandwidth in this region is cut-throat.

    For full details, as well as our other VPS plans, please refer to here.

    Interested parties wishing to trial the VPS may drop me a PM to arrange/discuss.

    Do note that prices indicated are in S$.
    In US$, they are approximately (depending on prevailing exchange rates) indicated below.
    Also minor corrections to the diskspace allocated, as below.

    VZ4: 1GB RAM, 30GB HDD, 16 CPU units, S$40.00 ~= US$27.97
    VZ5: 2GB RAM, 60GB HDD, 32 CPU units, S$60.00 ~= US$41.96
    VZ6: 4GB RAM, 150GB HDD, 64 CPU units, S$120.00 ~= US$83.92

    Our only other smaller plan is VZ3, without free DirectAdmin:
    VZ4: 512MB RAM, 15GB HDD, 8 CPU units, S$25.00 ~= US$17.48

    Just to clarify that the RAM allocation indicated for these OpenVZ plans would be 50% dedicated and 50% burst or 100% dedicated? If the latter, how much burst RAM?

    Thanks for your interest. Do allow us to explain.

    Unless we really misunderstood something, OpenVZ by itself does not have a notion of burst RAM. OpenVZ looks at memory as an entity, made up of physical RAM and swap space. So in the VPS, e.g. VZ4, you will see 1GB of memory available to you. Nothing more nothing less. Use up to 1GB and you'll start encountering out of memory errors.

    If you're concerned about the server performing memory swapping, please do not be.
    snapshot of "free" command on server:
     02:54:31 up 3 days,  2:44,  3 users,  load average: 0.62, 0.84, 1.04
                 total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
    Mem:      13854708   13581712     272996          0    1030324    9035504
    -/+ buffers/cache:    3515884   10338824
    Swap:     31350712      48880   31301832
    10GB of free buffers as reported by the kernel. Actual allocation is around 6GB. Which leaves us with 8GB spare to allocate to new VPSes.

    As of now, the number of VPSes on the server is way below 100% physical RAM usage, and even though we factor in a hypothetical 50% swap space allocation (by halving privvmpages into oomguarpages), we are not going to go all the way out to "maximise" the node, because by then, disk throughput would most likely become the bottleneck. Plan is to utilise 100% allocation of memory (e.g. 14 VZ4s) even if the actual usage is less; but we may squeeze in one or two more depending on the actual load.

    Only 3 days of uptime? That's because we had to reboot the server after inadvertently causing the network to lock up while in the process of IP subnet migration (and having 2 public-facing subnets active at the same time). Before this reboot, the uptime stood at 80 days (of which a reboot was necessary due to a kernel upgrade).

    Just to add on, we are not using any of the open-source/commercial control panels. It is an in-house developed control panel, and though it's still lacking in some features, it is constantly under development.
