Wishosting KVM Boxing Day 2019 SSD Special

Wishosting is now having a limited time offer with their Boxing Day 2019 special offer. This provider is not one with flashy promotions, but when they do offer promotions, you should certainly take notice because they are usually superb deals! Here are the specs of the current Wishosting KVM Boxing Day 2019 SSD Special:

  • Intel Xeon E5-2670 v2 @ 2.50GHz
  • 2 vCPU
  • 4GB RAM
  • 100GB disk storage
  • SSD disk type
  • 5TB Monthly Bandwidth
  • 1 Gbps Port
  • $9.99 per quarter (or $3.99 monthly)
  • KVM Virtualization
  • Location: Kansas City, Missouri

The results of the LEBRE scoring methodology (using the lower $3.33 per month amount) is as follows:

Well, well, what can we say? Compared to REBOX1, this Wishosting offer only failed to match our reference box in two aspects: CPU Passmark score and Disk Type, although both of these are still acceptable in terms of the price-performance ratio. When we look at all the other indicators, they easily hold their own compared to REBOX1 and is most certainly excellent value for money!

The RAM and bandwidth are very generous for the quarterly pricing, and the 100GB fast SSD storage you get for a mere $3.33 per month (if you pay quarterly) is an absolute steal. You will probably not have to worry about running out of space ever if you are not doing anything particularly intensive on storage like video files, raw DSLR images or Linux ISOs.

The overall LEBRE score of 143 suggests that this box is superb in value and justifiably so. The CPU is doesn’t get speeding tickets like our REBOX1 but it is more than sufficient to power most needs. Everything else is a bargain for that price, and this should be one of your Christmas hauls this year.

TL;DR At a monthly price of less than half of a Starbucks coffee, this is an affordable beast for most use cases. Just buy it already.

If you are afraid of missing this excellent Wishosting KVM Boxing Day 2019 SSD offer, buy your box immediately and support Wishosting, who is on The Whitelist.

WisHosting KVM SSD

Today we are looking at WisHosting KVM SSD servers with the following specs:

  • Intel Xeon E5 1630v3 host node
  • 1 vCPU
  • 6GB RAM
  • 60GB Disk
  • SSD Disk Type
  • Unmetered Monthly Bandwidth
  • 250 Mbps Port
  • $5.33 per month (quarterly payment; otherwise $5.99 per month)
  • KVM Virtualization
  • Location: Canada or France

The results of the LEBRE scoring methodology (using the lower $5.33 amount) is as follows:

Compared to REBOX1, the value of this WisHosting KVM offering is very poor in terms of port speed. However, it offers superb value with unmetered bandwidth! At this port speed with unmetered bandwidth, you will probably not run into monthly bandwidth cap issues (it’s a shared pipe so you may or may not achieve the theoretical maximum).

It offers somewhat weak value in terms of number of host node Passmark performance, number of vCPUs and disk type, but in return you get exceptional value for RAM and disk size.

The overall LEBRE score of 150 of this WisHosting offering beats the reference REBOX1 by a large margin due to its extremely strong value proposition in terms of bandwidth (you pretty much don’t have to worry about extra charges busting a monthly cap) and the generous 6GB RAM offered. It should perform well for most use cases.

TL;DR If RAM and bandwidth are your thing, then you can’t go wrong with this box.
