    Seems like alot of Black Friday dedicated server discount deals are being announced.


    This one from Clouvider is an awesome deal for the specs including 10Gbit/s Port connectivity and good selection of geographical locations! Deal ends on Monday 29th midnight GMT, November 2021.

    Probably one of the best deals from a reputable company that I've seen for the hardware specs, bandwidth and network connectivity speeds. I put my order in for one already :D My affiliate link if you choose to order = https://console.clouvider.co.uk/?affid=213. If you get the BF44 coupon can not be applied message, it means they ran out of coupons and need to wait for them to restock the discount promo coupon code.

    Beats OVH's Black Friday deals where some of the cheaper servers are capped at 500Mbit/s and SoYouStart ones are capped at 250Mbit/s - no good if you plan to move data out of the server in timely manner i.e. external off site backups. Also Clouvider deals support CentOS 7 while OVH's dedicated servers a lot of them only support CentOS 8 now.

    Wow, this really does seem like an amazing deal. I haven’t heard of Clouvider, but you have had a good experience with them before, @eva2000?

    Not personally before my purchase, but have heard good things about them from clients and had always wanted to try them - 10Gbit/s web hosts are hard to come by usually and before they only really had UK offerings but have expanded to USA/EU now. I believe @Matt has used them before too as they are in UK.

    Could be prices coming down due to Intel E3-23xx Rocket Lake servers coming out now too - Intel Xeon E3-2386G Rocket Lake vs E3-2276G Coffee Lake vs E3-2176G Cofee Lake

    Hmm, very interesting. Looks like I do see some people reporting some abuse from their network on Twitter, but it appears they do have a pretty active team and they are active on WebHostingTalk as well. I also like how transparent they are about which data centers they use on their website.

    I'm extremely tempted by the E-2276G in Ashburn. I have always wanted a server in Ashburn, the "Capital of the Internet", because it is so well connected and perfectly positioned to serve both US and Europe which are both important to my traffic. The E-2276G also has a much faster clock speed than the AMD EPYC 7251 I have now (2.1Ghz vs 3.8Ghz), which as I have documented here I have been somewhat disappointed with.

    The crazy thing is I could get that server with a similar config to what I have now (64GB RAM, 1TB NVMe, 4TB HDD) for just $90/month using this Black Friday coupon. That would save me $115/month over what I'm paying with Hivelocity now ($205/month). That's $1,380 a year!

    To be honest, my experience with Hivelocity has been so incredibly good that I would hate to leave them. I love how they send you a picture of the server and their support has always been outstanding. This deal from a Clouvider, a company I had not heard of until today feels a bit too-good-to-be-true... but I'm so tempted. :D

    That's why I ordered, try and see is the only way to know for yourself and well to expand my horizons web host choice wise :) But yes Hivelocity is solid and a lot of my paid clients are very happy too :D Much easier for me to decide as it's not an either-or choice, I can choose to use both or more than one web host concurrently :D Expensive though!

    Yeah the AMD EPYC 7251 is 1st gen AMD EPYC so slower relative to Intel. AMD EPYC 7xx2 Rome and AMD EPYC 7xx3 Milan are better for matching clock cycle processing with Intel. AMD EPYC 7xx3 Milan actual beats Intel!

    Yeah, you are fortunate to get to play around with so many providers. :)

    What config and datacenter did you go with on Clouvider?

    Dallas - E3-2276G with 32GB ram, 2x960GB NVMe raid 1 :D Going to fully test the server out and web host - I always fully evaluate new web hosts and then decide if it's going into production use :D

    Nice. I just signed up!! :D

    (And of course, I used your affiliate link!)

    I got the E-2276G, 64GB RAM, 1x960GB NVMe, 1x4TB HDD in Ashburn.

    Is there a separate code or something?

    if I configure a server in Atlanta with the same specs as the one I ordered in Ashburn, it actually works out to be more expense ($116/month).

    No code needed for Cyber Monday Clouvider one as it's already discounted in the cart selection unless they discount is already over as they have limited number of servers being discounted?

    But I see what you mean, only the base config has applied discount - looks like upgrades are excluded from discount?

    Ah, OK, that's what I thought. I was sleepy on my phone, still in bed this morning when I saw your post so I thought it might just be me. :ROFLMAO:

    Have you taken delivery of your system yet? My order still says "pending" in my account area.

    Not yet - I suspect they'd be stress testing the servers etc. Probably the base systems would have been faster, non-base custom servers I'd expect it would take more time to setup and test :)

    Early network tests look like an improvement over my older server's Tampa location. I am about 650 miles from Tampa and 350 miles from Ashburn, and all of my ISP traffic (Spectrum cable) is routed through Columbus, OH, which is also closer to Ashburn.

    It looks like this brings a solid ~27ms improvement for me, from roughly 68ms to 41ms.

    My colleague in northern UK also reported an even larger improvement. He is 4,300 miles away from Tampa and 3,500 miles away from Ashburn. His Tampa pings are ~133ms and his Ashburn pings are ~90ms. I have a lot of traffic from the US, UK, and Western Europe so I'm happy about that.

    The Clouvider control panel also looks pretty good so far. I might ask them if I can get a photo of the server as I always did with Hivelocity... :D

    ALSO... you can sign up for system status alerts at https://www.clouviderstatus.net/. They can call/text/email you when they post alerts there automatically, I like that.

    ------------

    Now I'm getting into tuning...

    I just changed the performance profiles. This is my first time doing this with Intel hardware so I'm a little surprised by what I saw.

    With the default settings it looks like the cores are running around 800Mhz:
    Code (Text):
    [root~]# tuned-adm active
    Current active profile: balanced
    [root~]# cpupower frequency-info
    analyzing CPU 0:
      driver: intel_pstate
      CPUs which run at the same hardware frequency: 0
      CPUs which need to have their frequency coordinated by software: 0
      maximum transition latency:  Cannot determine or is not supported.
      hardware limits: 800 MHz - 4.90 GHz
      available cpufreq governors: performance powersave
      current policy: frequency should be within 800 MHz and 4.90 GHz.
                      The governor "powersave" may decide which speed to use
                      within this range.
      current CPU frequency: 800 MHz (asserted by call to hardware)
      boost state support:
        Supported: yes
        Active: yes

      current policy: frequency should be within 800 MHz and 4.90 GHz.
                      The governor "performance" may decide which speed to use
                      within this range.

    I know the Turbo Boost speed for this processor is 4.9Ghz, but I didn't think it ran at that speed all the time? I also thought that only a few cores would run at that speed at a time, not all of them at once? This looks great but I didn't think it worked that way.

    Nice bonus!

    Nice - locations to matter still :)

    haha let us know if you do get a photo. Haven't got my server yet so no idea on control panel or do you mean the client panel?

    Signed up!

    You'd want to play with and test without touching tuned-adm profiles and with. I tested E3-2276G actually 2yrs ago inspecting CPU frequencies https://community.centminmod.com/media/e-2276g-3-10-kernel-cpufreq-all.44/ and you'd want to do your homework to ensure the CPU performs as expected.

    Yeah it can depending on CPU governor and/or tuned-adm profiles depending on CPU and Linux Kernel used.

    @deltahf might want to start you own dedicated thread in this sub forum to outline your adventures too ;)

    And if you want to run other benchmarks, try Centmin Mod Nginx HTTP/2 benchmarks too https://community.centminmod.com/th...tmin-mod-nginx-http-2-https-benchmarks.14832/ :)

    There's also sysbench GitHub - centminmod/centminmod-sysbench: sysbench.sh benchmark tool written specifically for centminmod.com LEMP stack servers :D

    Intel Xeon E3-22xx is a hot CPU, so make sure to do enough stress tests to ensure server CPU thermals are ok.

    Nice! I haven't even looked at the network yet, but I'm getting crazy numbers, too:

    Ashburn, VA datacenter test:

    That works out to 3.6Gb/s. :)

    Looking forward to the new Clouvider thread.
