OpenVZ to Xen Migration? We can do that

OpenVZ_vs_XEN-520x245

A few days ago we were faced with a chalenge from one of our customers. He wanted to migrate his OpenVZ VPS to our Xen VPS, since our resources are dedicated and not shared (Yes, resources from OpenVZ aren’t guaranteed).

This came as a bomb, since no one has ever asked us to do this, so we didn’t have the know-how to do it. This didn’t stop us from investigating a solution, and I’m happy to say that we were able to do it.

As of today, we are able to offer a free migration from OpenVZ to Xen to all of our new customers. Experience the most powerful platform there is without any kind of problems by migrating your data from one system to the other.

Slow Poke says, Heartbleed Bug Found!

You gotta love Slow Poke. Although we didn’t send out any information about this, we just waited long enough for Slow Poke to tell you that we don’t have any indication that we suffered any attack using this vulnerability.

Promotion – 90% off!

Hi,

I’ve just decided to give out more to our customers. We will be giving out EVERY month 10 discount codes that provides a 90% discount on the first month on ANY product that we have (addons are not included). Yes, we’re that crazy!

This means that if you’re the one to have this code, you will be given the chance to buy, for example, a VPS with 16GB Ram (Xen of course) for the amazing price of 3.49€ on the first month! For sure, we won’te be making any money out of it, but we want everyone to know our quality, just for the sake of it. Also, you know that we could invest this money on advertising, but actually we want to give out this money to our customers, instead to big companies.

 

Remember, this coupon code will be only active for the first 10 times every month! That’s 10 slots that we are giving away every month!

The coupon code is 90MONTHLY. The day that these codes will be active is every 15th of EVERY MONTH.

 

Also remember to activate your affiliate code, so that you too can receive money by referring your friends/family to us.

 

Cheers!

LusoVPS and GreatRDP

Hi,

It’s time to show what we’ve been cooking on the last few months. That’s right, an RDP service.
To anyone that doesn’t know what RDP means, it stands for Remote Desktop Protocol. Basically, your own virtual desktop located on the Cloud!

Since RDP services isn’t what LusoVPS is focused on, we have decided to create a new brand for these types of product: GreatRDP.
GreatRDP at the moment is a child and therefore needs to be nurtured like one, so we are supporting all of GreatRDP services as our own (support, billing, etc). In the right time, GreatRDP will have its own staff, registration, etc.

Now, what GreatRDP has to offer are quite some cool features, such as Local/Remote HDD, WebClient, Instant Delivery among others, and of course an RDP.

GreatRDP website is www.greatrdp.com. You’ll see that it’s quite familiar to you.

Web Client

we have developed the ability to connect to your RDP *without* using any native client (like Remote Desktop Connection in Windows). This new feature gives you the advantage to use your RDP even if you’re behind a proxy (like the one on your company). It will work exacly like your RDP client but on your Web Browser (the web browser needs to support html5 and websockets).
Here’s an example of our webclient working on Google Chrome:

GreatRDP Desktop

Remember that it works like an ordinary website. This means that it’s bound that you’re able to access from wherever you are. You can even access your RDP using your Android/iPhone! It will run on them. This feature is available on Every plan, it’s free and it Works!

Automatic Delivery/No human intervention

That’s right. We have developed a solution to automatically deliver your RDP. After good payment you will receive your login credentials on your email. There’s no Human intervention on this, we guarantee it! Also, you can change the password and logoff from your Client Area. There are no other fees on this. It’s free from the moment you buy it!

Remote Hard Drive

With the know-how from LusoVPS, we know that the servers are bound to fail, disconnect, burn, etc. Who are we kidding, we know that by sharing a Desktop, some users are going over the rules and force us to take the server down, or even just because a mis-configuration on the server is enough to format the entire server. It’s really easy for these things to happen. Because of this, we have developed a Remote Hard Drive feature that allows you to keep your important data on a remote host. We won’t use the server for anything other than backup, this means that no one will be able to RDP to the backup server. Here’s an example of our Local + Remote HDD viewed on our web-client:

Local + Remote

FTP Server

Every server has, by default, an FTP server on it. You can send/receive data to your Local HDD by using the FTP server. It also has the same login/password as the delivered RDP credentials.
This is very useful if for example, you’ve downloaded a big file (an Ubuntu ISO file) and you want to download it to your computer. You just connect to the server by FTP and download it directly. The same works if you want to send a file (an image for example) to your RDP and perform some changes on it.

Plans

We have designed 3 plans. These 3 plans were made to fit almost every need (in terms of space) to every user. Here they are:

Starter Plan Specifications

  • 10GB Hard Drive (local)
  • Unlimited Traffic
  • 1Gbps

https://cart.lusovps.com/cart.php?gid=25

  • 10GB Hard Drive (remote)

Advanced Plan Specifications

  • 20GB Hard Drive (local)
  • 20GB Hard Drive (remote)
  • Unlimited Traffic
  • 1Gbps

https://cart.lusovps.com/cart.php?gid=26

But, as always we have a launch code so that you can test your RDP and spend a minimum. That’s why we are offering a 50% discount on the first month on every plan. Just use the code LAUNCH and a 50% discount will apply immediately.

Oh, but this isn’t enough? We will give you a 2 day trial on our system FOR FREE (20 slots available, first come, first served).

These are the server specifications:

In France

  • 1xIntel Xeon E3 1230v3 @3.3GHz
  • 4 Core, 8 Threads
  • 32GB Ram
  • 2x2TB Sata HW Raid
  • 1 Gbit/s Network Connection

  • 2xIntel Xeon L5420 @2.5Ghz
  • 8 Core, 8 Threads
  • 16GB Ram
  • 2x1TB Sata Raid

I’m betting that these RDP plans will sell like fresh baked bread. Don’t loose the chance to have your own RDP session now.

With my finest Regards,

London here we go…

Hi everyone!

I’m here to tell you one of the big news: We’re expanding to UK! Is it big? It’s big.

Why did we choose UK to expand? Oh yeah, that’s a good question. Since our provider in France decided to back down on new orders, and we continue to grow bigger, we need to place our customers somewhere else near. One of the steps torwards the solution was to begin investing in Germany and now in the United Kingdom. We are very confident that with these steps we’re going to overcome this situation. I’ve just tested one Windows VPS to the UK and I was able to Remote Desktop to it and have image and sound working great (considering the problems that RDP has).

To begin with, we’ve bought a couple of servers last week and they’ve been under quarantine up until now. This quarantine is a procedure that basically consumes the resources from the server to check if it has LusoVPS standards. They passed this test today, and therefore we are confident to sell these resources.
