Vultr Sold Out Instances



  • I am noticing several sold out instances in NJ/NY Vultr data centers. Are these typically short lived or might they be unavailable for months?

    For example I was going to deploy a $160 VM and they appear to be sold out of everything above $80.

    That data center is crazy on usage. People need to get over the local thing unless there is a true reason.

    Typical it's just a few days. They are growing so fast that they can't meet the demand.



  • Im twice as close to Chicago as NY/NJ but the latency to NJ is generally better than Chicago. So I just made the switch to NY.

    I use several. Mostly Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta, NY and France.



  • @JaredBusch for your clients in Chicago, do you host at different Vultr data centers other than Chicago? If so, what type of workloads?



  • I'm using Dallas(PBX) and LA(Nextcloud)

    The only workload I have on Vultr so far is phone systems.

    As phone systems are one of the few true reasons to keep to a close datacenter, I seem like I go against my own complaint though.. That said I use Atlanta, Chicago, and Dallas because they have solid ping times to the clients.

    I have one FreePBX instance in Tokyo that I use for test calls with no issues.

    So even for a client in Chicago, you would use Atlanta or Dallas?

    If they had solid ping response times? sure.

    From my location (PA) I get solid 20-25 ms pings to the NJ data center. Chicago and Georgia are the next best at like 50-60 MS. 50-60 is still workable, I can't beat 20-25. The only real reason for me to go anywhere else other than NJ would be to split up the workloads in case of an outage at the NJ data center.

    Right, but this only applies to things like VoIP or maybe RDSH. Any other workload you provide is not going to care about a response time like that.

    Agreed. Specifically VoIP. Anything else, 60 ms doesn't matter in the least.

    That's common. Most providers only have two or three datacenters throughout the country. Having so many to choose from is misleading that you should leverage them. Not that you shouldn't choose the best one for you, but don't think of it as being very important. East Coast vs West Coast, okay. But much beyond that is rarely useful.



  • Today at 12:05 EST one of my new NJ Server 2016 instances was booted. The server sees it as if the power was unplugged.

    I opened a ticket and I am trying to find some insight. Haven't had a server reboot in Chicago data center before, but haven't run Windows Server yet.

    I have this particular instance firewalled with an allowed connection from my WAN IP. So I don't know if it could still be an outside attach like I was getting before. Thought about turning on DDoS attack protection but hate to be wasteful if that's not the issue.

    I have had a server kicked in Chicago before, but never without an email explaining something happened (not caused by my instance).
