VMHaus review

So I bought a VPS with VMHaus, since I didn't have much time to try out my trial VPS and wanted to switch away from my VPS hosted by OVH itself (only 100Mbit port).

Ordered this: https://manager.vmhaus.com/cart.php?a=add&pid=5

512MB RAM, 1 core, 10GB NVMe storage.

I only post this review because VMHaus is new, and I like to support new providers that are good and offer a quality service compared to most, that don't and are just shitty summerhosts.

First) it's obvious he knows what he is doing, I ordered a VPS and he had it setup with the ISO I requested in just a few minutes, hes answered everyones questions on discord and has been very nice.

I installed Debian inside an encrypted LVM. Install was very quick, all went well.

So, the benchmark:

High IOPS, which is great and solid download speed and CPU power. Also the latest E3 1270v6 that OVH recently released.

They also offer internal IPs and OVH vRack (snapshots coming soon), which is nice, even though I will probably not use these features (besides snapshots).

Also, they are backed up daily, another pro.

My experience with VMHaus has been great, he's active on discord aswell so I can contact him quickly if I need to.

Good luck to @vmhaus .
