I decided to put my Ramnode VPS into production by installing LibreNMS.
LibreNMS is a fork of Observium and in my opinion, better than “paid” Observium while also free.
As you can see with the stats of the bench.sh from FreeVPS, the performance on this VPS is definitely respectable and well worth your money.
Please note- with this test, I have rarely seen good performance come from Softlayer’s Washington DC location. The performance to Netherlands is slow due to this VPS being in the Northwest US at Ramnode’s Seattle location.
Ramnode is one of my favorite “go to” providers where I know I can host something of production value and not be concerned about downtime, outages or anything that could cause performance degradation. My previous Ramnode review shows excellent uptime and I never had any issues with lack of performance.
Ramnode is a relatively new company by industry standards of where companies have been around 10 or more years.
This is nothing against the company as they’re making name recognition in some areas of the web hosting industry.
First, Ramnode operates their own US network and own EU network through a partner which is absolutely amazing since IPv4 is starting to end the ‘depleted’ phase where IPv4 shortages are going to happen soon.
Second, what I like the most is on the about Ramnode page, the CEO Nick even puts out his email address and encourages you to email him if there is an issue!
I am using a SSD VPS v2 plan which is 1GB of RAM, 4 CPU cores, 1 IPv4 address, a /64 IPv6, and 75GB of disk space. This is under the “Premium” section and this is $10 per month.
