Free $20 for DevOps Class – openbsd, freebsd, dragonflybsd and netbsd vps

I have to prepare for new class that required vps access. The class will teach unix based system like openbsd, freebsd, dragonfly bsd plus netbsd in 12 meets.

This class will be basic for devops but most important thing for me is my student can get full environment in every OS. Vps came to my mind and this March 2017 is really great since Vultr announce great news :

They double everything and they also provide ‘sanbox plan’ for beginner.

In nutshell you’ll get 1GB memory and 25Gb space vps on the OS you choose. SSD speed also superb :

dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync

16384+0 records in
16384+0 records out
1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB, 1.0 GiB) copied, 3.87756 s, 277 MB/s

For limited time Vultr offer free $20 that you can use for many things;

  • Set git server using gitlab.
  • Set up aws compatible cloud with minio
  • Testing zfs latest FreeBSD 12 vs Hammer in dragonflybsd
  • Tes mysql replicate while setting master in Germany Vps and mysql slave in Paris or Amsterdam.

Long time ago I’ll need $10 server to achieve that but now I just need $5 vps server /mo to get 1GB server which is awesome 🙂

I just spread the news to let others know and grab your free $20 by using this link.

Long live the queen!
