CMIPS v.1.0.3 with GoGrid

cmips-gogrid-subscription-terms-payment-hourly-monthly-half-yearlyI introduce the tests for GoGrid Cloud Instances.

I tested three instances:

  • The smallest 1 core – 0.5 GB Ram
  • The medium-sized Extra Large – 8 GB Ram
  • The biggest XXX Large – 24 GB Ram

The biggest XXX Large comes with 1.2 TB (1,200 GB) of disk storage.

The tests have been done with Ubuntu Server 12.04 64 bit because latest Ubuntu Server 13.04 64 bit was not listed in the available OS list.

Must be remarked that GoGrid makes easy to select a reserved provisioning for long term, in the moment of creation of the instance, Extra Large (8GB) for example, the user is asked if he wants to go with a Subscription Term:

  • hourly at USD $0.64/hour
  • monthly at $290/month, instead of $460.80 (720 hours * $0.64/h)
  • Semiannual/half-yearly at $1,596/6 months, instead of $2,764.80 ($460.80 * 6) (Also $290 * 6 = $1,740)
  • yearly at $2,900/year, instead of $5,529.60 ($490.80 * 12)

Must be highlighted that they allow to hire a Cloud Server or a Physical Dedicated Server, from the same wizard.

GoGrid hybrid wizard

Is always nice to be able to create hybrid infrastructures, specially if you want really powerful Database Servers connected to your Webserver Instances, in the same network.

Is also remarkable that the smaller instance, with 1 Core and only 0.5 GB of Ram comes with 25 GB of disk storage. That’s good.

That smaller instance, Extra Small is called, performs just a bit less than my low-performance-high-battery Intel SU4100 Laptop, and double than Amazon’s M1 Small and 9 times more than Amazon’s t1.micro.

The Dedicated Servers start from US $300 per month. Would not be nice to be able to rent a Physical, Dedicated Server per hours as well? Or at least by days?.

I think people would try more often, as paying $10 per one day Server, for testing, is not so aggressively risky as having to try for a minimum of a month and investing $300 may be just to discover that this Server is not powerful enough, or that the Internet bandwidth does not fit your requirements.

Other thing curious is that they charge per Server, even if it is stopped. So to stop paying you have to delete the Server. If you stop it, you continue paying for the provisioned resources (disk and Ip address).

And I was surprised that in their Terms and Conditions they do not allow to use the servers as IRC Servers.

The registration process needs to perform a phone call, and supports many languages, and I tried Catalan, my language, and worked flawlessly.
