HostDoc has already started their Black Friday 2019 sales with an even tastier offering than their previous Dallas offer we presented several weeks ago. The specs of this Black Friday 2019 offer is as follows:
- Intel Xeon Gold 6128 host node
- 4 vCPU
- 4GB RAM
- 25GB + 100GB Disk
- NVME + HDD Disk Type
- 1TB Monthly Bandwidth
- 10 Gbps Port
- £3.74 per month (annual payment; otherwise £4.49 per month)
- KVM Virtualization
- Location: Dallas
The results of the LEBRE scoring methodology (using the lower £3.74 amount) is as follows:
Compared to REBOX1, the value of this HostDoc Dallas sale offering is somewhat weak in terms of host node single-core Passmark, disk type is reasonable and the monthly bandwidth is clearly a bummer at 1TB monthly.
BUT, this HostDoc Black Friday prescription offers crazy value in terms of number of vCPUs, RAM and disk size, with a blazing 10 Gbps port speed (a rare offering for lowend boxes).
The overall LEBRE score of 194 suggests that this HostDoc Dallas sale offering is of exceptional value compared to the reference REBOX1. HostDoc has outdone itself, beating its own previous Dallas offer (which already trounced our reference REBOX1 by a large margin). The main downside is the 1TB bandwidth but everything else more than makes up for this. This box will perform like a dedicated for just a fraction of the price of low end dedicated servers.
TL;DR Likely to offer performance rivaling low end dedicated servers at a fraction of the price. Especially recommended for those who need computing power and ultra-fast bandwidth.
Special note: if you are wiiling to go beyond the $7 limit that we set on LEBRE, HostDoc has what could the ultimate value high performing VPS offer (8 vCPU, 12GB RAM, 10TB bandwidth) this Black Friday for just £8.33 per month (annual payment). Check it out here.
