Quantum Core

Nearly 2 months ago I came across a deal from @QuantumCore for a VPS in Sydney for $5 AUD per month (that's about tree fiddy in USD) - https://quantumcore.com.au/linux-vps

I'm going to paste this bench.sh before I continue.

That's not bad at all for $5 AUD per month, in Sydney. The network is fast my man. Not OVH. I don't actually know for sure, but it's premium AF.

Check out that Asia speed!

I've been using this as a remote desktop (it's 25ms away, performance is awesome with x2go) and I'm able to stream video from sites I wouldn't normally be able to on a VPS. (I'm not elaborating on that, you know exactly what I mean). For a single core, it's quite beastly. Definitely, absolutely, bet my left nut on it, it's NOT oversold.

Haven't needed support, no comment there. General chit chat with the owner has been friendly, and the vibe I get is he's focused on quality. Quick to respond during human waking hours.

There's a $50 free credits if you put $5 in. I believe the $50 credit lasts for 60 days. It'll cost you fuck all to try it out. - https://quantumcore.com.au/freecredit

I wanted to show @QuantumCore some love as they haven't got as much attention as I believe they deserve.

@poisson we have exothermic potassium here. Would be interested how this ranks, if you pay $5 for effectively 6 months (if you pay half yearly before 60 days), plus the change..

And finally, official certification:



Tl;dr grab your $5 AUD and get some Australian potassium of the finest quality outside of Melbourne :-)
