What article says is correct in not being nepotism, but that is deceptive. It is in the same vain as nepotism, but more so cronyism and favoritism. Not that those are necessarily bad things in the article's light. Just it is incorrect to act like choosing personal connections and networking is somehow not favoritism is not correct. #from:Windows_Phone #status_quo #disingenuous #deceptive #butthurt #blogs #posts #pub
"I’ve been a Linode fan and customer for years, but just this week I was made aware of a competing VPS host – DigitalOcean. It’s a pretty compelling sell. A VPS for $5 a month, with a 20GB SSD and 512MB of RAM. Fucking, sweet. But when something sounds this good, I’m sceptical. To dispell or validate my thoughts of a “catch”, I turn to a handy performance analysis tool – Phoronix Benchmark Suite. Here’s the skinny." "The Setup Linode at $20/month :: 4 Cores running at 2.13GHz, 512MB RAM, 24GB disk, Vanilla Ubuntu 12.04 x64 with ext3 filesystem. Xen. DigitalOcean at $5/month :: 1 Core running at 2.0GHz, 512MB RAM, 20GB SSD, Vanilla Ubuntu Server 12.04 x 64 with ext4 filesystem. KVM." "The Conclusion Linode has four cores which results in predictably greater CPU performance. DigitalOcean has SSD disks which results in predictably greater I/O performance. But DigitalOcean is 75% cheaper. That's a shit load the last time I checked. Even if you are transcoding video, you could just get a more powerful DigitalOcean server or more of them. From a strictly performance-per-dollar perspective, DigitalOcean has Linode spanked." #web_hosting #benchmarks #comparisons #blogs #posts #references #vps #dedicated_servers #pub
