CubeData Review of VPS 8
#1
Hello all! I am going on month two of using my VPS provided by @cubedata and I have learned a lot to say the least. In this review I will be breaking things down by my thoughts, some benchmarks followed by my current use and what I hope to accomplish with the VPS in the next month or so. So let’s get right into it. 

My thoughts:
I honestly did not know what to expect when I first got the keys and got behind the wheel of this VPS. As you will see in the benchmarks, there’s a lot of power behind this plan and honestly with my love of Wordpress I needed something that was going to be able to handle the load that my main site and developer site were going to produce. My last host, many of you noticed the long load times, but with the transition of my main site nearing completion I could not be happier. The panel was a little confusing for me to understand right off of the jump, but I quickly got use to it, using the built in HTML5 VNC client to fool around with things until I was able to get the VNC client built into macOS setup properly followed by getting SSH enabled so I can tinker even on my iPhone. I would say CubeData exceeds expectations with 99.99% uptime, so I know my clients and business will always be connected.

Pros:
Consistant uptime
Fast and easy to setup
Panel Tools are powerful, limited and direct

Cons:
I noticed with the Panel that the Virtual CDROM would often unmount itself while I was trying to get my server reset up and optimized.

My plans for the future:
With this server going above and beyond my expectations, some of my plans for the future is to continue developing softwares and CMSs that I've had in development for a while now along with venturing into new technologies such as creating an AI Assistant for said projects.The sky is the limit and I see my self keeping up with and continuing to maintain access to this VPS until I out grow it. One thing I would like to do is create a small mail server, so I can move my email from gmail to have a [email protected], but that can come at a later time and date. Thank you once again to Post4VPS and @cubedata for the wonderful server.
Thank you to CubeData and Posts4VPS for the services of VPS 8.

Good and simple review loved reading it! That is indeed a really amazing VPS with 4GB of RAM and 2 CPU Core and 50GB Disk and internet speed damn! I wish if you added more things to your review like GeekBench.
That disk speed is really optimal too!
I see you have many good future plans for the usage of the VPS Good luck with your all projects and developments.

Nice review @tbelldesignco. Really enjoyed reading this. I see there is an internet speed improvement for Speedtest which now is around 1GBit/s. When I was having this VPS it's only around 200-300MBit/s. Nice improvement or it's my configuration? No idea Tongue.

I have never came to this issue. Probably you load the harddisk first then virtual CDROM. If yes then you need to change it first, so the CDROM will be the first to mount then harddisk. When you done you can just keep the configuration but unmount the CDROM. Next time you need to mount it will automatically boot there after you restart the server.
Thanks to Limitless Hosting and Post4VPS for providing me excellent VPS 13!

Oh no I had that correct, there was just some random glitch where the image would unseat itself if you refreshed the page. I got it all sorted in the end, but I was like woah why is this disk image not loading.

Just a reminder here for those who may have forgotten.  Only make a post in a review if you have a question of substance to ask, or you have a specific point to make, or you've noticed something in the review that should be highlighted.

If you like a review but don't have anything of substance to contribute, except to say it is great and to thank the author for posting it, then please use the "Rate" button/tool instead.  You can find it at the bottom of the post window of the OP.  The rate window provides opportunity for posting a thank you note as well.

One-liner "thank you" posts will definitely be removed from the discussion as it takes away from the quality of the discussion and encourages others to "spam" as well.

Thank you to Post4VPS and VirMach for my awesome VPS 9!
