been using this for months.for me is even snappier than the rs2000 root server at half the price.
2p

Is your rs with ssd or hdd?
I have another rs2000 sitting ready to setup, thought about using the vps as feeder and the rs for plex

thats a really good idea.
i had both.but the ssd was WAY to underwhelming and the 480gb hdd was also not enough.
currently 750gb is cutting th emustard ok, although the vps2000 has 1.5 optane hdd which would be even better (processing and unpacking etc)

Must say that my vps(FOR THE MOST PART) is almost as good(and even a bit nippier in some cases) than the rs2000.
just my 2p, YMMV

At the moment Netcup have the root server RS 4000 as a offer.

18,99€
RS 4000:
-Intel® Xeon® Gold 6230
-32 GB DDR4 ECC RAM
-560 GB SSD RAID10
-6 dedicated cores (KVM technology)
-Traffic unlimited till 80 TB / month; guaranteed speed 200MBit/s
-contract is for 12 months!
--> Link (only german)

The standard price is 20,99 € with the same specs but only 160 GB SSD.


I recently just bought the VPS 2000 G8 (for 14,49 €) from Netcup. I'm pretty happy with it, but I'm thinking about changing to the RS4000 for the dedicated cores..but the 12 months contract let me think about it. Therefore all experiences are welcome to justify the purchase (as I only have 2-4 clients). Maybe someone already have the RS4000 and can tell how the performance is, how many parallel streams are possible?

P.S. in the next days i will give some benchmark results here in the thread. As the past posts here helped me very much for my decision.

i saw it.
they only had 400 pieces and went in about 2 hours.
GREAT deal(as good as it gets) at E18.99pm.
unfortunately for me i still have time left on my 4000 (but with the 4Xssd so 560gbssd) and am paying as you said E21 per month for that..exactly the same spec but a few E a month more expensive.

12 months goes quickly so that is good.but it stops you getting better deals so that is bad. (the deal yo umentioned for E18.99 will NEVER be beaten for price so i hope you got yourself one!)

I couldn't make up my mind :p because I'm not yet sure what power I actually need for my use case. (and a 12 month contract is critical if i would need something better in the end).

As you have the RS4000 could you tell about your experience? As mentioned, I have only recently started with the VPS2000 (8vCore) and for direct stream and audio decode it works well (much better then OneProvider / Online.NET which I tried before).
Can you to transcode with the RS4000 with the 6 dedicated cores?

@Dexter. , would you mind posting a Geekbench (V4) from your server, please?

I am currently running a VPS1000G8 and am thinking about going up to the VPS 2000, thus I am quite interested in those results.
Thank you! :)

At the moment it works pretty good for me. Just the unpacking somtimes is really slow, but I'm still trying to figure out why. Tests with more users and paralell streams will follow. And I'm still waiting for the RS 4000 G8SE Benchmark to compare :).

I think I misunderstood and it is actually a 60GB SSD OR a 480GB SAS not a 60GB OS disk AND 480GB data disk.
