    So who uses DigitalOcean's KVM based VPS for installing Centmin Mod ?

    Which KVM VPS plan are you using ?

    Which region do you have your droplets ?

    All Centos except for one Debian apache server for easy .htaccess redirects. One a dedicated ES server and the others web servers.

    Had quite a few with DO, this is where I first started using it. My original setup for my live sites was as a 2GB droplet running nginx/php-fpm, and a 2GB droplet running MariaDB, with private networking in AMS2.

    Don't recall exactly some form of Xeon E5-26xx IIRC. But not as fast as Linode.

    So maybe Vultr < DigitalOcean < Linode ? :)
    I haven't tried Linode though.
    Still worried about ddos.

    depends on what you're testing single threaded test versus multi-threaded

    single threaded, yes Vultr has higher base and turbo boost frequencies

    multi-threaded, Linode is king with more cpu core offerings at higher end. Only one provide i know has faster cpus and that is wable.com with OpenVZ VPS plans and Xeon E5-2690v2 cpus

    yeah wable has their own internal firewall of sorts and initially it conflicts with CSF firewall, they fixed it but sometimes I loose access to SSH with connection refused and need to wait a while before logging in again. The public front end of sites still works when I don't have SSH access though.

    I got the same error from Softlayer sometimes when site is under high load.

    I finally move to DO, so my setup now is:
    1x haproxy 1GB ram
    1x nginx-fpm 2GB ram [ exclusive to torrents updates ]
    4x nginx-fpm-glusterfs 2GB ram [ site ]
    2x MariaDB (master to master cluster) 8GB ram

    Now I need to optimize them :D

    I am leaving from that since my apps run a lots of php and his servers are about 60% of performance of Vultr on mine tests.
    I have tested both with same centminmod and tweaks in kernel, nginx and php-fpm (with and without pools) and I got same proportional results in req/s, about 60% of vultr servers.
    Well, I like of DO but them need to improve their servers.

    yeah DO's lower clock speed on E5-2630L will be slower than Vultr and Linode !

    Used to use DO for the first time 1GB, the uptime was more than expected, nearly one year without reboot :)
    However, due to failed project, I need to stop it :(
