    For me, MetalVPS is mostly an educational project these days. I learn from the MetalVPS Neighbors who also are using our servers.

    Originally, I had imagined that a few servers might sustain a small business with a profit of $1,000 per month. However, making a profit in Low End hosting seems to require hundreds if not thousands of customers using highly loaded servers. So far, MetalVPS usually has just three or five or ten customers per server. I'm grateful to each of them for teaching me!

    Hope this extra bit of explanation is helpful. Best wishes!

    I'm afraid this is not true.
    You just need to plan it accordingly, and I've spoken with some LE hosts who make a profit without overloaded nodes or 1000's of customers.

    I can help with this.

    I'd also suggest to check out binou: https://github.com/Woolverine94/biniou

    That's an all in one tool, which includes multiple text generation models, and extremely easy to setup too. I'd be able to set this up for you in 10 minutes.

    Here's something interesting that I can see inside the server:

    root@lol ~ # ls /dev/dri
    by-path  card0  renderD128
    root@lol ~ # 
    

    and the same listing also shows up from inside a chroot:

    root@altroot0:/# ls /dev/dri
    by-path  card0  renderD128
    root@altroot0:/# 
    

    Intel has some interesting command line tools which I need to learn about. For example, please see https://github.com/intel/xpumanager/blob/master/doc/CLI_user_guide.md#intelr-xpu-manager-command-line-interface-main-features

    Anybody want to help me learn a little about Intel and other cool graphics command line tools?

    Guys!

    Maybe it might be helpful if I mention a few factors relevant to the pricing:

    • The server costs me €84.00/month, which is US$90.22 at today's exchange rate.

    • I love command line! Command line makes me happy every day! I don't want to switch away from command line to administer the server.

    • I love open source! I don't want to use closed source software, not even one percent closed like Blesta. (I mostly use a Chromebook. which starts as open source, and Google includes many closed source additions. For me, the Chromebook has a terminal, which I mostly look at as a tool to use to escape to the freedom of my server.)

    • Unlike our many "real" Providers, I don't have racks of equipment in a datacenter. I'm just a guy, a Chromebook, and a couple of servers that I get from "real" providers.

    • It's not easy for me to stay in tune with more than a small number of Neighbors on my servers. To me, maybe eight seems okay.

    • This server has an i9-13900 with "Performance" and "Efficiency" cores. (I love how NetBSD calls these "fast" and slow.") The i9-13900 processor is really fast, but I am unsure how easy it is to set up virtualization which takes advantage of the differences in the two types of cores. Also, there is the question of how to use the integrated GPU in a virtualized setting. I have a lot to learn!

    • Maybe some day before long I might get a server with lots of uniform cores, lots of memory, and lots of disk. I have played around a little with OpenStack, and there might be more solutions I could try if I wanted to make a little MetalVPS Cloud. But, for now, I have what I have, and it's great!

    • I like being part of and contributing to the Low End Community! I founded FreeVPS.org as a way to help LE Community members find free servers. Thankfully, at my request, @crunchbits took over leadership of FreeVPS, so I could get back to my own servers.

    • Over the several years I have been working on MetalVPS.com, and beforehand, lots of wonderful guys have been using my servers. I really enjoy talking with and learning from them!

    Where I come out on all of this is that pricing generally around $20/month seems a good fit. Maybe more for someone with an expansive use case. Just for fun, I previously have tried $20.24 per month, and that's actually worked out well.

    Some people might argue that $20.24 isn't Low End! Some people might argue that $20.24 or even more actually violates the LES rules. However, what's available here isn't just shared hosting, and it isn't just a VPS on a busy Node.

    Best wishes!

    I hope everyone gets the servers they want!
