Which one performs better?
I'm confuse on what server should I use :/
Off the top of my head an older Intel Xeon E3-1230v1 Sandy Bridge is as fast as Dual Intel Xeon E5620 Westmere EP which is probably faster than the Dual Intel Xeon L5630 due to higher clock speeds - 2.4Ghz vs 2.13Ghz base and 2.66Ghz vs 2.4Ghz Turbo Boost. So in overall performance a 2nd generation Xeon E3-1245v2 Ivy Bridge based cpu which is already faster than same clocked E3-1200v1 equivalent, would be faster than Intel Xeon E3-1230v1.
Of course depends on work load/usage involved too - if you have usage which uses more multi-threaded work loads, then having 16 cpu threads might be better than limited to 8 cpu threads.
Thanks for your thoughts Eva
What is the specs of this server, @eva2000
Plans and Pricing - Linode 4GB plan
How simple is it to upgrade to 8G? Is there a long downtime?
With rackspace, you can't resize the server, you have to make an image and replicate it on another new server.
Don't know, didn't try that option on Linode.
found it here.
Resizing a Linode - Linode Guides & Tutorials
Resizing my 2GB Linode to 4GB Linode took ~15 minutes of downtime
Wow. Didn't expect that long.
I was thinking 2-3 minutes would be acceptable.
In any case, I'm seriously considering a 8GB (or even 16GB) SSD server. They have a location in NJ and it's cheaper than what I'm paying for Rackspace now.
Yes, Rackspace used to be expensive.
They are still expensive
Migrate to: Vultr, DigitalOcean or Linode
I'm planning to. How about you, where you are moving to? What specs?
15 min ain't long TBH
As you can create Linode's from existing Linode snapshots, you can even spin up a 2nd Linode and restore at that moment created snapshot to the 2nd linode and switch DNS to the copy while the live gets upgraded
I'm currently on: Server E3-SSD-3 - So you Start
Not yet planning on moving to another server
Nothing can beat the current I have specially the price
