    Only Mike would know the exact setup, but AFAIK its a softlayer server, running a standard lamp stack with elasticsearch and apc for opcode caching, nothing special, as it should be able to run on even basic shared hosting with no issues.

    It is definitely in Softlayer. In any event, I have never seen a XF forum run badly on any server. Even on servers that were previously slow with other forum software, XF seems to be very peppy.

    Is it a latency issue, perhaps? Are you trying to access it from outside the US? If so, there is likely going to be at least some very minor delay.

    Depends on the size of your forum, of course, but you really shouldn't have any performance issues with those specs.

    Jeez softlayer is expensive

    I thought linode was pricey for VPS, but softlayer definitely beats it

    I thought Linode was one of the least pricey since they doubled the RAM on their plans.

    My last host, I had 2GB of ram, and 8 vcore for 38$ per year (weloveservers)

    Problem was the service. When they decide to maintenance without telling us at 4pm, which took 4 hours, I was pretty unhappy

    When we were nullrouted and were down for 19 hours, and they said they were "working on it" every time I asked (every hour)

    Switched to linode for better service.

    What advantage does softlayer have over linode?

    I had a server in softlayers. They notice me when one of my HDD smart is showing some errors.

    They do have some ddos mitigation. And it's better then AWS.

    For server setup it depends on what you need theres quite a few dedicated servers for goodprice i recommend, robot.your-server.de/order/market this one im planning to move too as for vps servers id suggest looking at webhostingtalk

    240$ for 3 month for 1 core , 3 ram 30 ssd

    That's pretty horrible

    linode can beat that by far

    $3/mo. for that? That's exactly why you had problems with the service. Hosting is a very much "you get what you pay for" game. Every hosting company has largely the same costs (i.e. the price of servers, equipment, bandwidth, support, etc. don't vary much), so when you see one that is 4 or 5 times cheaper than the others, you have to wonder why. Something has to give somewhere...either the support, or the equipment, or whatever.

    Honestly, you could get a dedicated server for not much more than that.

    Why don't you try Nimbus? Great infrastructure and support.

    They were renting boxes from colocrossing and couldn't actually fix anything themselves :p they also barely spoke English

    Its fine for a school project but I wouldn't ever use it in production again

    Linode has had 100% uptime except for one 4am scheduled reboot which took under 30s which they warned me days in advance

    Their disk io, CPU, and network are almost perfectly consistent due to how they manipulate xen to prevent abuse

    Yeah... it was

    Quite a few webhosts that don't offer dedicated hosting do that exact thing... rent out a bunch of boxes from like... ovh or something, and then drop webservers and resell the webserver space
