    In our endless pursuit of the best cloud deal on the planet for Incredible PBX 13-13, we're trying out a new OpenVZ $13/year offering that was designed especially for Nerd Vittles. It comes in at just over $1/month on a one-year recurring subscription which you can obviously cancel in your PayPal account at any time.

    Specifications:

    While the CentOS 6 base install is advertised as CentOS 6.6, you'll end up with CentOS 6.9 at the completion of the Incredible PBX 13-13 install. We would rate the install speed as very fast.

    Current hosting site options include Buffalo, Chicago, and L.A. Just added Atlanta, New York, and Dallas.

    Only other setup required is the traditional OpenVZ tweak for NeoRouter:
    Code:
    echo 'OPTIONS="-i venet0:0"' >> /etc/sysconfig/knockd
    service knockd restart
    # remember to enable TUN/TAP in Control Panel

    We haven't finished testing this, but if you're in a hurry and feeling lucky, here's the signup link.

    We strongly recommend 64-bit CentOS 6 (rather than 7) if you plan to use Incredible Fax 13.

    This platform should also work great for PBX in a Flash 5 with 3CX and Incredible PBX for Wazo although we have not yet tested either of them.

    We've been testing HiFormance VPS machines in LA, Chicago, and Buffalo against our WootHosting disasters in New York. To give you some idea of the difference, loading pbxstatus on all three of the HiFormance platforms takes less than a second. On WootHosting, it ranges from 30 seconds to about 3 minutes. I've opened a half dozen tickets with WootHosting, and they "fix" things for about an hour, and then it's back to CloudAtCost performance.

    Signup link for $13/year deal. Here were the latest performance numbers from HiFormance in Buffalo...

    I guess I missed the first time this was mentioned on Nov 2nd. I had bought a Woot, and luckily enough never used it - so just donated them some money but wasn't out the time to install, test, and become dissatisfied.

    Ward, Do you feel that this Hiformance servers would make good hot sync backups for a Vultr instance?

    Absolutely. Also would be good HA slave location with Wazo.

    I like how this has become a benchmark. :)

    Incidentally, this is not a one-off problem at WootHosting. You can review our daily tickets this past week here.

    Wow - seeing is believing ... Think woothosting is using a ST-4096 (for us old timers) vs the SSD that HiFormance is using.

    Absolutely - of course if you're doing 500 minutes of phone calls per day and are recording each conversation, you'll run out of space in a couple months if the recordings are not purged.
