Free Crunchbits Bare Metal Server! -- "The Best Deal In Town!"

Not_OlesNot_Oles Hosting ProviderContent Writer

Friendly greetings! 🌎🌍

Everyone's best friend and favorite Low End Provider, Crunchbits, granted MetalVPS Crunchy, a wonderful US 🇺🇸 dedicated server, free until November 8, 2024!

Free Offer

Usually I, @Not_Oles, have several bare metal servers. Typically I don't really use more than one bare metal server at any one time. Also, I put my long running services on VPSes. So, almost always, I have excess bare metal server capacity. It seems like a good idea to offer this excess bare metal capacity to our LES Community.

I started FreeVPS.org to give excess bare metal capacity to our Community in the form of free VPSes. Now, with Crunchy, I may be sharing an entire bare metal server with just one Community member. It also is possible that Crunchy might be shared among several Community members plus me. We will have to see what happens here in this thread. As of this writing, nobody else but me is using Crunchy.

If you want to figure out whether you could do what you want to do on Crunchy, please read the Warnings and the Terms of Service shown below.

How to Sign Up also is covered below, along with Pricing (Crunchy is free!), Support, and FAQ.

The Boss at Crunchbits said that MetalVPS is "literally the best deal in town!" Thanks to the Boss for his kind words and for Crunchy!

Best wishes! 🌎🌍

Tom

  • hi Not_Oles,
    May I have a shell for this server in a short period.
    I always only use asia/US west network .I would like to learn much network information through this shell.
    Crunchbits provide great vps plans but I haven't got it yet.

    Hi @subenhon!

    Thanks for your comment! :)

    Yesterday I went back to re-read one of your posts in a previous MetalVPS thread -- the post where you first got unprivileged LXC containers going. I was trying to do that again. It has been almost a year, and I had forgotten! I worked through it by myself, and then I went to compare with what you had done. :)

    Crunchy seems to have a VGA display card and also an integrated GPU built into the E3-1245 processor. Crunchbits told me, if I understood right, that the integrated GPU processor will work with VPSes. But I don't yet know how to do that. So there is not a recent GPU card. I can see

    ubuntu@crunchy:~$ ls /dev/dri
    by-path  card0  card1  renderD128
    ubuntu@crunchy:~$ 
    

    If you still want a shell account, it's definitely possible. But please think about the fact that, here, we are considering possibly giving the entire server to just one person. Do you have a use for the entire server?

    Could you please give me your ssh key again?

    Best wishes! :)

    It is great for having the entire server if possible.
    I just use the server for learning and tesing purpose, It is ok to give it to others if someone needs it more

    Hi @ettige!

    Congrats on signing up here at LES! There are a lot of great guys here who know a lot and who will help you a lot.

    I took a look at your Github and at your Vercel App. Looks like you are getting a great start on web design and web programming!

    There is only one server available in this offer. So it's not like I can give one to you and another to someone else. Maybe we could put several people on the one server. We will see what happens.

    What is your use case for Crunchy?

    Best wishes! And, again, welcome to LES!

    Hello Everyone!

    Root access to Crunchy has been given to @subenhon because, in previous MetalVPS threads, he has shared and discussed LXC command line code using features like Namespaces and Access Control Lists.

    I am confident that @subenhon's use of Crunchy will enable more code learning and more code sharing!

    I expect that MetalVPS will continue sharing bare metal servers. I look forward to making more servers available!

    Thanks to everyone who asked for Crunchy! <3 Thanks to @crunchbits for this wonderful server! <3

    Hi, Again @Not_Oles.
    Yes, I,m Not speaker so I need to always get some help to write things. Just to make sure that my message is clear and grammatically correct.

    I found that offer is already given to someone else, maybe I get one in future offers.

    I am back after a few months. When I logged in to my account I suddenly found this post.
    It's awesome to know that you got a free Crunchbits server until November.

    I have a question. Does this server supports KVM?

    hi @Not_Oles , Maybe you already know me.
    I don't know what lxc is so I learned to use lxc container.
    Does this server support lxc container?

    Hi Tom,sorry for the late reply.
    The server works fine, and I running a Windows10 Guest using qemu-kvm.
    In order to get a better performace for the Windows10 Guest , I install virtio-driver in the Windows10 Guest ,then add "-vga virtio -net nic,model=virtio " to the Windows10 Guest start up command line.
    The Windows10 Guest working fine at the beggining, but after a while it crash.
    It seems than the Windows10 Guest does not work stable with the virtio-driver.

    How should the server celebrate Lunar New Year? Maybe a Node OS wipe and reinstall would be a good way to celebrate?

    Lunar New Year,We are more accustomed to calling it the Spring Festival,which is "春节" in chinese
    The spring festival is nearby,We go back to the hometown , reunite with family, and gather around a holiday meal on the Spring Festivals Eve, we call it "吃年夜饭". Maybe we should let the server go back to hist hometown and "吃年夜饭" with his family for celebrate Lunar New Year =) ,hahaha just kidding. The server works fine now ,we dont need to reinstall it.

    What is our plan for updates and reboots?

    Should we add a few more users or keep everything as it is?

    I am thinking about installing a few things on the Node. For example a graphical desktop. Also a web server. I don't think either of these would cause any problem for you. Is this okay?

    Hope we enjoy the Year of the Dragon here on Crunchy! In New York City there is a big parade for the 春节! :)

    I hope everyone gets the servers they want!
