ReadyDedis VPS in Mumbai

ReadyDedis posted an offer on Low End Spirit and Low End Talk about their new Mumbai location. I was intrigued. Good, reasonably priced VPS (Virtual Private Server) plans in India are few, and for a while I have been looking at an option of a VPS in Mumbai.  I do not have any servers in India, because the price to specifications ratio does not work well typically. In recent months, this has changed – two other offers for a VPS in Mumbai were posted by Cloudjiffy and Nexaracks recently. (read my benchmarks of Nexaracks VPS ) This offer added a third option.

Update December 2020: During Black Friday sale, ReadyDedis offerd a great deal for a Mumbai location. I will publish a separate review on that shortly.

FLOWVPS, Australia: Black Friday 2019 Offer

VPS offer from FlowVPS- Black Friday 2019. Blog of Amar Vyas

In this post, you will find results from the benchmarks on a KVM VPS in Australia by FlowVPS, located in Melbourne. I had signed up for this service as a part of 2019 Black Friday offer. You my also find more tests and discussion in this thread on Low End Talk.

Update December 2020: Nearly One year after I published this post, I have mixed feelings about this VPS. Around October, there was a disk failure in the node and the server was down for days. The disks had to be replaced and there was a total data loss. (Thank goodness for Backups!) . Though that is hardly a reason for letting go of this server. I have simply been unable to put it to use. The price makes it an attractive proposition to hold on to on the other hand!


4 vCPU
15GB NVMe - Primary
100GB SSD - Secondary (Not bootable)
1.5TB Data
1 IPv4
At 15 Australian Dollars/Quarter 
about $ 10 US Dollars), this is one sweet deal!

KVM in Netherlands: Hostslick, Black Friday 2019 VPS Offer

I was not specifically looking for a KVM in Netherlands. But signed up for a one year plan with Hostslick for a KVM VPS with 8 GB RAM and 8 GB Swap. This offer was from the Black Friday 2019 offers. In this post you wll find the benchmarking results from that VPS.

Update December 2020:

I have discontinued this plan as a part of consolidation of VPS’es and providers. I was unabel to find a specific use for this VPS, inspite of its rather decent specifications.

Benchmark Tests on VPS- Part III

This is the final set of benchmark tests on VPS’es. Starting next week, I will put them to the intended use. One quarter of idling nearly eight VPS’es is enough 🙂

A discussion on Lowendtalk forums introduced me to a new script on running benchmarks. I promptly tried it this morning and got some interesting results:
