We bit the bullet and upgraded our CloudAtCost resources to v3. I'M NOT RECOMMENDING ANYONE ELSE DO SO, but I did want to share the SpeedTest results from a couple v3 honeypots that we built for our new PUBLIC-facing version of Incredible PBX.

They're now in about the same league as the $1/month providers. At current pricing, it would take you 99 months to break even.

We'll see how long the honeymoon lasts. :sailor:

Since you upgraded to v3, they should not charge you the maintenance fee anymore so that changes your break even point

You're right. At $9 a year, I think I'll be even in less than 200 years.

*snort*

I'm actually paying the $9/year. That's funding my 7 Developer instances (so, 70 GB disk, 7 CPUs, 3584 RAM), plus a couple of CPanel instances, a couple of storage instances, and a template pack (all of which I picked up for a few bucks each over the years). I'm no defender at all, but things have (fingers crossed; knock on wood) been chugging along reasonably smoothly lately. Nothing there is mission critical. I might have to reboot the PBX every month or two.

Maybe things are running more smoothly for us plebes because Ward moved his NSA-equivalent virtual machines over to v3...

:cool:

With the prices of SSD dropping like rocks now, I would expect to see better pricing on them. I just saw an Intel M.2 1TB drive for $87
