We recently moved our YASMP, and creative servers because we were having problems with them on their CloudAtCost Server, one that was purchased by Sage. The disk I/O blocking and poor performance of that server was so bad that Sage moved it to a server in his own house.. His words about CloudAtCost were matter of fact, as you can read below on our blogs.
I then offered to shut down the Minecraft servers I was hosting on another CloudAtCost server so that they could host the YASMP servers.. "Mega" servers were still running on 1.7.10, so I saw this as the fastest way to update to 1.8.3, since YASMP was already on 1.8 and I haven't had the time to update mega.
So we did the switch in the middle of this week and things seemed to go quite well. Finally putting "Mega" to a little bit more use.. Pwn WON Mega from CloudAtCost in October 2014 (after 5 months of them promising that we would have it, also when we got it, it had 64GB RAM instead of the advertised 128GB RAM). I asked about a contract for this server via CloudATCost Support, basically they said.. host Minecraft and say that CloudAtCost sponsored it.
You'll see here on our website we have a CloudATCost logo and link. In-game on servers hosted at mega, we had automessages and signage saying sponsored by CloudAtCost. It is my concern hwoever that, CloudATCost may have pulled the plug on the server we won in light of Sage's comments.
Being that this is the weekend I'm sure my several e-mails, support tickets and tweets will go unanswered... if they have pulled the plug which I am assuming, because this server previously ran 6 months without so much as a hiccup or a lag spike, it ran NYCTO hardcore with 20GB allocated RAM a massive city world generated map and more mobs that you'll ever see.. for it to shut down now is very very very very coincidental.... I will withhold judgement... I've been a supporter of CloudAtCost on the whole, there have been issues but you get what you pay for (I own a paid for server from them myself)... I just really hope that there is a reasonable explanation for our server being unreachable right now...
