Comment on Memory will be the real performance bottleneck on your VPS by afternoon http://plasticboy.com/archives/2009/11/30/memory-will-be-the-real-performance-bottleneck-on-your-vps/comment-page-1/#comment-68104 Mon, 08 Mar 2010 13:17:35 +0000 http://plasticboy.com/?p=3495#comment-68104 I highly recommend a combination of nginx and FastCGI. I’m personally running both PHP and Python (Django) on a single Linode. I have 3 php-cgi instances resident at about 20MB each. nginx is resident at 2MB. Although the RAM usage is not much different, nginx serves static content, so the PHP processes service far fewer requests, raising the requests/sec limit.

I wasn’t aware of the memory cost of 64 bit.

I did some numbers of my own a while back, and while those were the only two I compared, Linode really won out:

Comment on Amazon MP3 Downloader for Linux by gmendoza http://plasticboy.com/archives/2008/02/29/amazoncom-help-digital-downloads-help-amazon-mp3-music-downloads-using-the-amazon-mp3-downloader/comment-page-1/#comment-54446 Sat, 01 Mar 2008 08:37:33 +0000 http://plasticboy.com/archives/2008/02/29/amazoncom-help-digital-downloads-help-amazon-mp3-music-downloads-using-the-amazon-mp3-downloader/#comment-54446 I posted on this earlier today as well. Requiring an application to take advantage of full album downloads was absolutely frustrating for me, especially when they offered no solution for Linux users. But I am really happy that they actually listened to their customers, and published a well polished native application that anyone can use. I also made my first purchase to show my support.
