start to host Vultr's new High Frequency Compute Packages
The new High Frequency Compute packages from Vultr are a huge improvement over their previous packages at a tiny increase in cost.
Benchmarks of 2413 Geekbench ($5) vs 4883 Geekbench ($6), 25GB vs 32GB storage, high clock CPU's and NVMe Local Storage for just an extra dollar!
Having to use a management solution to host these packages such as runcloud, serverpilot etc is an extra hassle for the average consumer and I have no doubt this will offer a huge surge of customers who are willing to pay for the convenience!
Many thanks :)

Loving the new High Freq servers! Highly recommend upgrading for those on Vultr Standard atm.
I did a small test - https://mrashleyball.com/standard-vs-high-frequency-cloudways-vultr-comparison/
These High Frequency servers are now showing up live and available to order or to clone an existing server to.
They show up as a choice for server selection when signing up to CW, when adding a new server to an existing account, or when cloning an existing server.
Pricing is an extra $2 for a 1GB, $3 extra for a 2GB etc.
Time to do some testing.

Because Cloudways never bothers to actually come into this forum to keep any of these updated - they have been stating in the Cloudways Users Facebook Group the last couple of weeks that this is nearly ready.
Just today (August 19) a CW rep posted a response to someone else asking the same last week: "We are almost there" - for whatever that's worth.
The group is at https://www.facebook.com/groups/CloudwaysUsers/
Waiting on a status update to this. Glad to see Vultrs HFC packages are getting implemented.
Any update on this?

Vote +10000000000000 - we need these!
A Cloudways spokesman has finally announced in the Cloudways Facebook Group that Vultr HF servers will become available sometime this month (July 2020). No specific date, so we'll still have to wait & see. Too bad they don't update these user requests themselves.

Has the high frequency been added to cloudways? While my preference is linode, for a paris data centre I am stuck with vultr and will prefer to use the HF
Personally have used these on smaller scale projects and absolutely love the new HF packages. Wish they were on Cloudways for convenience though. Definitely should add these as an option for Vultr to provide a more cost effective choice for CPU intensive applications, as compared against Google and AWS.

Looks great. Looking forward to this.
Any Luck Here Guys? It has been 9 months since the request was originally opened - I would think this would be simple enough since you already communicate with their API???
These seem like a very very high-value to cost ratio looking at their pricing (only $1 more from their standard SSD offerings)
Would be amazing if Cloudways can offer the High Frequency VPS products in the near future
I would highly appreciate that.
