First things first: Happy New Years! I hope everyone has had good holidays and is ready to settle into 2020.
This year, I wanted to shake things up by bringing a new offering to the swizzin lineup. I call it: swizznvme.
For the uninitiated, nvme drives are solid state storage technology that have moved beyond the basic SATA connections that storage technology has relied upon for years. Now, NVME drives are connected to PCI-express lanes and send/receive data directly to/from the CPU.
The result is even faster performance than an SSD.
To top it all off, these new NVME disks are paired with an unmetered pipe from Novoserve. If storage isn’t your primary concern, I’d highly recommend checking out the plans available as the bandwidth offerings are quite generous and the amount of solid state storage being offered at this price will beat nearly any competitor.
Check out the plans here! Pricing starts at $15.95/mo.
For the second item, I wanted to mention that a commonly requested feature has now been brought to the whole lineup: Deluge v2 support.
When installing Deluge, you’ll now have the option between v1.3.15 and v2.0.3. Simply choose which one you’d like to install.
Otherwise, if you’ve already installed Deluge and you want to upgrade, you can use the command
box upgrade deluge to upgrade your current installation to the new client.
Be aware of a few caveats however: Deluge thin client support is limited in Windows and there is not yet an easy way to install v2. Furthermore, while upgrades in sessions are supported, downgrades are not. If you upgrade your slot, a backup will be created; however, if you decide you want to downgrade, you will have to reinstall Deluge and restore your session from the backup manually. Any torrents you may have added to the v2 session will need to be manually re-added yourself.
That’s all for now!
