Cancelled QuickWeb

Today, I cancelled my last VPS with Quickweb in WDC (XEN PV). Although the service is stable but the actual VPS was costing me about two times from another stable reputable provider and since im on savings-mode, I want to experiment by moving that node from Quickweb to SecureDragon. Quickweb was my first VPS provider back in May, 2010 and so, I have a bond with them even though I cannot afford their VPSes mainly because there are other cheaper and stable options available in the market.

For those who want to know the Disk IO and Network speed etc? I will blog a post later today

Tests from WDC Node (Node=XEN10)

Tests from Germany (DE) node (Node=Germany)

root@nagios:~# uptime
 12:43:56 up 7 days, 23:44,  1 user,  load average: 0.70, 0.19, 0.09

The node got rebooted, I created ticket #356419 and I was told “Apparently the machine had kernel panic and was rebooted.”, otherwise the uptime would have been around 105 or so days
