    Nice your Ashburn to New York City numbers looks really good too!

    I whipped up a speed test script
    Code (Text):
    #!/bin/bash
    
    echo "----------------------------------------------------------------"
    echo "wget -4 -O /dev/null https://ams.speedtest.clouvider.net/10g.bin"

    From Dallas to New York City only managed 77MB/s and next best after Dallas 1.09GB/s, is Phoenix at 143MB/s and Atlanta at 146MB/s. Dallas to Ashburn was 70MB/s. Though Dallas to Los Angeles seems low 37.3MB/s.

    But all these are stock out of box virgin CentOS 7 without Centmin Mod installs yet. Centmin Mod install will modify the TCP settings a bit, so will see how that impacts network speeds.


    I'm going to play with Clouvider's OS reinstall tool too so see how that handles 2x 960GB NVMe raid 1 :) New toy fun :D

    @delta don't forget to get your free 50GB Acronis Cyber Cloud Backup storage. There were no details in their emails about this so asked via ticket support and it appears if you log in to your client console at https://console.clouvider.co.uk and then visit Acronis Cyber Cloud Backup, there's a button link with BACKUP50 code where you sign up for Acronis Cyber Cloud Backup and get the first 50GB for free.

    The Clouvider Acronis Cyber Backup storage locations have EU and NA locations to choose from.

    @eva2000 is correct, I was with them around 3 years ago.

    I moved away because I had 3 servers with them, and the same issue occurred on all 3 of them in a short period of time, where the 2nd NVMe drive in the RAID1 array died shortly after a reboot.

    Dom was excellent in providing support, and worked directly with me to go to their DC and do the hardware swap himself.

    Ouch ! May I ask if you recall what drives were they ? Here's hoping that issue has been resolved after 3yrs otherwise they wouldn't be offering such a config still I hope :)

    I'm using 2x960GB NVMe raid 1 of different brands it seems on Clouvider E3-2276G

    Ah yes, good catch!

    Will you be using this backup? I have used R1Soft CDP for many years (it's also what Hivelocity uses, though you only get nightly snapshots for full system restores, not file-by-file snapshots, and the backup server is in the same datacenter). From what I can tell Acronis Cyber Backup is roughly the same software. The file-by-file snapshots can be pretty amazing when you need it. I will probably just get enough Acronis storage to backup the whole system as I usually do, though my site takes up around 800GB so that will get fairly expensive. I'm still saving money compared to Hivelocity, though.

    Going back to bandwidth for a minute, I'm transferring data from my old server in Tampa. Here are 1.9 million files (WordPress and XenForo installs, minus XenForo's /data and /internal_data directories) direct from one NVMe drive to another, it took 52 minutes averaging 21.87MB/s:

    Code (Text):
    $ time rsync -ah --info=progress2 user@my-hivelocity-tampa-server.com:/home/user .
             72.82G  99%   21.87MB/s    0:52:54 (xfr#1902181, to-chk=0/1910003)
    


    One interesting metric... just comparing my XenForo 2.1 database (14GB SQL file) restore times with default Centminmod configuration.

    On my old AMD EPYC server, restore took 25m45s. On this E-2276G running in "throughput-performance" mode, 13m50s. :whistle:

    Yeah, I'm planning to thoroughly test all Clouvider features so I get to know them and what they're capable of. I also do this when I help my paying clients evaluate web hosts/hardware - so for me it's just part of my work process :)
    Yeah could be similar, will see :)

    If you're using CentOS 7 and most distro's default rsync 3.1 it will be slower. Rsync 3.2.3 is a much faster beast combined with zstd compression and xxhash checksums see Fast Tar And Rsync Transfer Speed For Linux Backups Using Zstd Compression - Centmin Mod Blog and https://community.centminmod.com/th...-with-xxhash-zstd-support-for-centos-7.20768/. More tools for Centmin Mod to come :D

    Also rsync isn't the fastest way to transfer data between servers when it's the first time/one time only transfers. Rsync is actually much slower for such cases. Better off with tar'ing up all and then transferring - especially if you use faster tar 1.31+ with zstd or pigz multi-threaded gzip compression support https://community.centminmod.com/th...with-facebook-zstd-compression-support.16243/

    Example from one of my paid clients Centmin Mod to Centmin Mod server migrations :)
    So a 40-50MB/s tested 1Gbps connection across 2 servers across USA managed to transfer 144+65 = 209GB of data in ~30.6 mins with tar 1.31+ with zstd compression and rsync 3.2.3 with zstd compression + xxhash checksums :D Restoration was fast too for 3.2 million files = 144GB took ~8 mins to restore and 65GB MySQL databases around 3.5 mins to restore :D

    Pretty much expected compared to 1st gen AMD EPYC. You need 2nd gen AMD EPYC Rome or 3rd gen AMD EPYC Milan to compete or beat (respectively) the Intel Xeon E3-2276G Coffee Lake CPU systems.
