Nexus Bytes announced their Ryzen + NVMe offers recently on Low End Spirit among other places. I was thinking of consolidating the VPS’es in this quarter – somehow ended up building a collection of VPS’es in the second half of 2019. Jay (Seriesn) and I and separately, another user poisson had been exchanging messages about the same, when I finally decided to bite the bullet.

In order to get this plan,  I would have to cancel Ramnode or another plan, as per the “Switch Special” option offered by Nexusbytes. In a separate post, I will explain how and why I opted for the Switch Plan of NexusBytes.

In a nutshell, for less than 55 US Dollars, a 2 GB RAM/ 2 Core AMD Ryzen VPS with 40 GB NVme (plus storage) and 2 TB Bandwidth – for 17 months, was too good to miss.

VPS-2G Plan

Details of the VPS 2 G Plan with Standard pricing ar as follows:

Nexusbytes-VPS-2GPlan

There are higher plans that can be availed, going all the way upto VPS-11G plan ( 11 GB RAM, 10 Core VCPU, upto 220 GB NVMe with annual payment). You can find the details here.

Results of the Benchmark Tests

I. ‘dd’ test

16384+0 records out

Update: Jay (Seriesn) from Nexusbytes thought that the dd results were off. He requested that I reboot the VPS and run the dd again. Across 5 tests, the results got better.
