TEXAS server from MetalVPS.com!! Shell, LXC, or KVM!!

Server: HP BL460c G6

CPU: 2 x Xeon L5630 4-Core = 8 cores = 16 threads


Hard drive: 2 x 400GB SAS SSD, Hardware RAID 1

IP Addresses: IPv4/29, IPv6/64

Connection: 1 GBit/s port

Bandwidth: 10 TB

Datacenter: Colocated with Level One Servers inside Carrier-1, Dallas, Texas, USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Node OS: Slackware-current 🀩

VM OS: Whatever you want!

What you get

ssh to shell account or VNC to GUI (KDE, Xfce, more). You can spin up an LXC container or a KVM. Reasonable access to all resources. No arbitrary limits.

Reasonable access without arbitrary limits means, for example, that a single neighbor could run more than one VPS, could use more than one IPv4 and IPv6, etc.

Currently there is one user plus @Not_Oles. 🀩 So far, nobody has been using significant server resources -- thus, almost everything remains available.

Please make an offer.

How to Order

  • Accounts may be requested by active members of the LES community and by others whose web presence or references are deemed sufficient by MetalVPS.

  • To request an account, please post here, PM me, @Not_Oles, or use the email on my @Not_Oles LES profile.

When and How to Pay

  • No payment is due until after your account is set up and you are 100% satisfied.

  • Payments available via Paypal or Stripe.


  • Hey! It's Slackware-current 🀩

  • KVM and LXC are insufficiently tested on this machine. πŸ”œ Want to help test?

  • Grumpy, ignorant, clueless, greedy administrator! πŸ˜€ Except for cluelessβ„’ the remainder of this line is retired.

  • Sometimes trusted neighbors might get sudo. πŸ™ˆπŸ™‰πŸ™Š Did you know that sudo can be configured?

  • Delivery might take awhile! 😴

  • @Not_Oles frequently messes up new installs! 😱

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

  • @Not_Oles tries to keep the system updated. Frequent maintenance reboots are guaranteed, but uptime is pretty okay. Node load averages usually are pretty low.

  • 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!

  • MetalVPS.com is an indie project of Tom Miller and not an official lowendspirit.com project.

  • Neighbors can 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.
