Missing Xeon on Game server - Page 4

post #31 of 34
Definitely a virtual machine - most likely running on the QEMU open source platform, as evidenced by the make & model of the HDD....

While there's nothing wrong with providing a virtual server, I think their administrative behavior is pathetic, and would definitely be taking my business elsewhere...

True - in fact I would prefer that my server was running virtually, so it could easily be transferred to new metal in case of a failure.

But when the company starts messing around with the assigned hardware, especially something so cheeky as removing a cpu you paid for, you kinda lose all faith that they are supplying anything worth paying for at all. I would also be moving elsewhere.

It actually sounds like the company was like,

"Hey, this guy's not really using the 8 virtual cpus... let's take half of them away and assign the resources to somebody else"

If you thought you were paying for a physical server definitely get your money back mate. To be honest they seem dodgy as it is with there poor poor customer service, I would get your money back regardless.
