Sam028,

I just beginning to look into VPS. I'm based in Oz so it's a long way to the exchange so it makes sense for autobots for me.

I run Ninja, Investor RT and Multicharts, could you give me your opinion on what system configuration I would require. I am looking at 64 bit Workstation Windows 7.

All the best,

Bondi9999

@Bondi9999, did you take a look at this thread ?
I still have enough slots, if you want to test on a dual-Xeon 1Gb/50Gb 2008R2, during 2 or 3 weeks, that could give you an idea on "how big" your VPS needs to be.
I didn't tried Investor/RT, but it looks like a good product, well coded, so it might not used too much memory, so 1Gb might be enough to run all three (IRT, NT, MC).

You won't find a lot of Windows 7 VPS's, but mainly Windows Server versions.

Researching VPS

Hi There,

Researching VPS for running strategies with NinjaTrader 7. I am thinking at least 1G RAM, running 2 strategies. Unsure on bandwidth. In anyhow easy enough to try it out unless something knows how to quantify the bandwidth.

After researching I think EC2 and Giganet are the most cost effective for me (running weekdays 24 hours). It adds up to about $100 a month for the configuration.

Any other suggested VPS hosting service?

Thanks.
Nimble

With EC2, you will have some very "random" performances.
AFAIK, EC2 is based on old hardware, and it's now quite slow.
And you should avoid all "cloud" solutions, unless your bot is working on very large time frames: these solutions are not made for real time stuff, and not very reliable (well, the VPS I've tested myself).

1G is enough for 2 strategies.
For network aspects, on the VPS used for the battle of the bots, 6 to 8 bots running, two Zen-Fire connections, a dozen of instruments, it has sent 1.5Gb and has received 3.35Gb in 41 days (so 110mb/days in network I/O).

Sam,

Un saludo,

Pablo

For security reasons (and because some of my VPS users are paranoid ), I will avoid the company name.
It's a big company, multiple data centers in US cities, and a 24/24 support (which works fine).
To be clear, I'm not renting a VPS to this company, but two big physical servers. I have installed an hypervisor, had build few VPS for my own use and for some Elite members which where interested in the idea, and manage the physical servers myself.
The costs are, approximately, shared between the users, so it costs me less than a commercial VPS, for a much better solution: in many cases, the VPS resources (CPU/RAM/IO) are oversold, so you can have good performance one day, and terrible ones two days later. And you can't know the truth (the oversold ratio, the performances of the physical machines, ...).
In my case, I'm sure to have good performance: the resources are not oversold, the other VPS users are using their VPS for the same thing as me (I presume), so no crazy stuff like download torrent or big backtests, and I'm watching the cpu load very carefully (average load is 7% for 6 VPS).

You will have more details in this thread.

Hey tradewerks,
Well, things took a completely different path -
I ended up getting my own equipment -
I've got two Lenovo S20 workstations -
Each have dual Matrox quad cards running 8 23" wide monitors
One workstation is for currency, the other commodities -
Currency account is with CFH Markets running MT4 -
Commodities account with Advantage Futures running CQG -
I'm happy, I can see it all, got a 60mb internet line and having no troubles getting fills -
Here's a pic of the beast!
Happy trading!!!!!

Does anyone know if N7 (latest release )works ok on windows server environments considering you can only run the latest N7 on Windows 7 if SP1 is installed.

Let me formulate it like this: THERE IS NO WINDOWS 7 SP1.

There is a Sp1 for Windows 7 AND Windows Server 2008 R2 - same executable.

So, yes it does, if you patch up the server.

To add some confusion :
- the latest NT7 works on 2008 R2 without SP1
- if you have 2008 R2 with SP1 installed, you'll need the latest NT7
