Friendly greetings to all! 🌎🌍

What's New?

  • Ubuntu Jammy seems to have been installed on a MetalVPS Intel i9-9900K node at Hetzner Helsinki.

  • Want a free account? Maybe with sudo? πŸ‘ Right now plenty of server resources are available because there is nobody using the HEL1 node except @Not_Oles. :) Fair use, but, if you make a VM, your VM specs don't have to be tiny. 🐷

Node Specs

  • Intel Core i9-9900K
  • 2 x RAM 32768 MB DDR4
  • 2 x SSD M.2 NVMe 1 TB RAID 0
  • 100 GB /altroot partition
  • NIC 1 Gbit Intel I219-LM
  • Location: HEL1-DC4
  • 1 x Primary IPv4, 1 x IPv6/64

  • Hardware rented from Hetzner for € 53.70 / month.

  • Node OS: Ubuntu Jammy for now! 🀩 NetBSD might or might not be coming soon! ❀️

  • VM OS: Whatever you install!

Who?

  • MetalVPS is not a registered entity. Instead, MetalVPS is an indie project of @Not_Oles IRL Tom Miller a/k/a the cluelessβ„’ guy.

Why?

  • Why not? It's fun to play with and learn about servers, operating systems, and the internet. :)

  • @Not_Oles uses very little of his MetalVPS servers' capacity. It's better to offer the extra capacity to others than to waste it. πŸ€”

  • Sometimes, when @Not_Oles hasn't run installimage for awhile, he misses it. 😒

  • Maybe the request (please see below, How To Sign Up) to accompany applications with links to posts here on LES where you asked for tech help or helped someone else with a tech question might encourage our wonderful Low End Spirit! <3

Warnings!

  • Cluelessβ„’ administrator! πŸ˜€ @Not_Oles frequently messes up! 😱

  • @Not_Oles is especially cluelessβ„’ about Ubuntu since he is an Ubuntu noob. πŸ€—

  • Sometimes trusted MetalVPSians might or might not get sudo. πŸ™ˆπŸ™‰πŸ™Š

  • RAID 0 is faster, but, if one drive goes, everything is gone. πŸ”₯

  • MetalVPS usually has no billing panel and no server control panel. It's all command line until you install a GUI or activate whatever pre-installed GUI you want. πŸ†• Maybe you can install and use some kind of web GUI. Maybe you can make your VM with the Ubuntu command line! πŸ€—

  • MetalVPS has no onboarding and no knowledge base. β™’οΈŽ If you want to make a VM, you need to know or be willing to research about how to do it.

  • Account delivery might take a while! 😴 Accounts might be difficult to get, and there might not be very many accounts, because @Not_Oles enjoys servers that are not crowded. πŸ” @Not_Oles will go especially slowly on this node! 🐒

  • Both individual accounts and the entire server are subject to cancellation at any time without advance notice! πŸ’₯

  • No warranty, to the extent permitted by applicable law. No service level agreement. Not for business use. Intended especially for computer learning and fun! πŸ€‘

  • White Hat stuff only, please! No copyright violations, please. πŸ‘

  • @Not_Oles tries to keep the system updated. Frequent maintenance reboots are guaranteed! 🌺

  • Please make your own redundant, offsite backups! It's easy to download or sync or clone your backup to a safe place. Please also make sure that you actually can restore from your backups! Please think of your MetalVPS account as ephemeral! It might blow up! We or you might reinstall the node! πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

  • MetalVPS.com is an indie project of @Not_Oles IRL Tom Miller with help from the MetalVPSians and many other friends. MetalVPS.com is neither a project of lowendspirit.com nor a project of Hetzner. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»β€‹

  • Other MetalVPSians might be able to see your account name, some of the processes you are running, and much other information. So, please do not put confidential information on the server. πŸ€”

How To Sign Up

  • Please post in this thread. Unless necessary, please avoid sending emails or PMs.

  • Please include in your request:

    • your name,

    • your location,

    • what you plan to do on the server,

    • links to two posts here on LES where you asked a tech question or where you helped someone else by answering or discussing a tech question,

    • your ed25519 ssh public key, and

    • a link to your website if you have one.

Support

  • Does Jammy cause traffic jam?

    3 of 3 my VirMach VPS are online, but you should consider Webhosting24 aff or Nexril aff.
    box5 is the culprit - @Fritz ; yoursunny is my dinner for tonight - @FatGrizzly

  • @Not_Oles is especially cluelessβ„’ about Ubuntu since he is an Ubuntu noob. πŸ€—

    Per your CV.

  • Nice offer for people! How'd you manage to get a 9900k for € 53.70/mo, do they still sometimes go for that price in the auctions or was it a legacy deal?

    € 53.70 / month is an auction price. Also, VAT is excluded.

    For comparison, I got a similar i9-9900K, also at auction, for € 81.70 / month. The additional € 28.00 / month was for double memory (128 GB instead of 64 GB) plus a 16 TB HDD add-on.

    Hetzner also offers their EX100, which is an i9-12800K with 128 GB RAM and 2 x 1.92 TB Gen 4 NVMe. The EX100 is € 108.80 / month in Finland and € 119.80 / month in Germany. Plus € 109.00 one time setup fee.

    The default configuration i9-9900K auction server at € 53.70 / month is half the price of the € 108.80 / month i9-12800K Finland EX100. Plus the auction server has no setup fee. A pretty good Low End Deal!

    Friendly greetings! :)

    Tom

    I got a 128GB 9900k in FSN for €56.04/mo a couple of months ago, and at the time there were 64GB ones for about €1 less. I've not seen them cheaper than this though, but you might be lucky if you wait long enough.

    Awhile back I found Running QEMU/KVM Virtual Machines in Unprivileged LXD Containers (2017) by Dmitrii Shcherbakov.

    Dmitrii's tutorial was done on Ubuntu. One of the reasons why this server, Jammy, was installed with Ubuntu, was that I might try stepping through Dmitrii's wonderfully fun Qemu-KVM inside LXD install. I figured that going through the tutorial was more likely to be successful with the same OS.

    I wonder whether there might be significant, perhaps breaking changes between 2017 and now. Anybody know?

    I have another little project I need to finish, but, in a day or two, maybe I can take the first step of Dmitrii's tutorial.

    Friendly greetings! :)
