    Hi ..

    Anyone known about Exoscale out of Switzerland?

    Thier services are strictly located in Switzerland, and are exclusively operated from there, which means they are not governed by the USA Patriot Act. They say:

    The prices are the same as others providers we look at and also have the same 'packages deals' in sizes.

    I have not yet anything to do with them - but for me, they looks promising.. Check them out here:

    never heard of them but looks good for European location and like how they have option to add extra storage for each VPS plan. But bandwidth could get very very expensive
    2TB Bandwidth would cost an extra 34 EURO per month !

    Yeah - After doing some calculation with the data from my own low traffic modelrailroader site - then I also did conclude that I will never risk to use them because of that. So for now its still german Hetzner (vps only) and a mix of Ovh (dedicated)/Vultr/DO. Besides that I have 2 spare Vexxhost vps.

    So - After I figured out how I could set some swap disk area in Exoscale vps (Cloud config examples — Cloud-Init 0.7.7 documentation After reading up on this Cloud-Init stuff I ended up with this:

    Code:
    #cloud-config
    manage-resolv-conf: true
    
    resolv_conf:
      nameservers: ['8.8.4.4', '8.8.8.8']
    
    disk_setup:
        ephemeral0:
            table_type: mbr
            layout: [66, [33, 82]]
            overwrite: True
    fs_setup:
        - device: ephemeral0.1
          filesystem: ext4
        - device: ephemeral0.2
          filesystem: swap
    mounts:
        - ["ephemeral0.1", "/"]
        - ["ephemeral0.2", "none", "swap", "sw", "0", "0"]
    
    that I have to configure in my user webinterface at Exoscale before you actually create the vps. Did went well, so I did again one of @eva2000 installers..

    Code:
    curl -O https://centminmod.com/betainstaller7.sh && chmod 0700 betainstaller7.sh && bash betainstaller7.sh
    and got this at the end of compiling, installing etc.

    and I have not altered anything - just install vps, yum update before running the CMM installer.

    And that was that - I will delete the vps and request a cancel of the account.
