SSDNodes is NOT Supported By GridPane

1 min read

Unfortunately we’ve had to mark SSDNodes as an officially unsupported IaaS provider. 

Their systems have a number of non-standard practices which are incompatible with our stack, our scripts, and our automation tools. We run the exact same scripts and tools on AWS, Google Compute Engine, DigitalOcean, Linode, Vultr, and countless other providers without issue. 

While we have seen sites build successfully, on occasion, we inevitably see core functionality of our service breaking down on SSDNode systems. 

We therefore cannot support SSDNodes servers and strongly recommend NOT using them.

To make matters worse, we’ve consistently seen incredibly poor performance across every single customer of ours who has attempted to use their platform.

Not some of our customers who used SSDNodes, every single user where we’ve tested their servers at SSDNodes directly. 

After countless rounds of testing it’s become clear, time and again, that the way they’re able to offer such insanely low prices, prices that seem too good to be true, is because, simply: it is too good to be true. 

The only logical conclusion is that they’re egregiously overselling boxes. It should be noted that most hosts/VPS/infrastructure providers “oversell” resources. It’s an all too common practice, unfortunately.

But we’ve never seen cases this extreme anywhere else.

We strongly encourage you to look at any of our default integrated providers.
