we are working on this market. there is no innovtion since S3 works
great, but I think Ovh can imagine something new too.

it's the old offers that is still working for the old customers.
we don't accept the new customers since it's the services in the
"end-of-life" status: gamepro is the old version of RPS (done in
2002, no hard disk, disk over NFS). tel2pay allows you to earn
money with the phone service, we are working right now on VoIP
services. I think soon we will have the english number and will
propose you free SIP with an all europeens numbers ...

have your own CPU, RAM, 100Mbps per RPS. No a part of a CPU like VPS is.
You have no hard disk. It works with iSCSI. 10Gb, max 1Tb. It should
be ready in 2-3 weeks for less that 10 pounds /mo ... well, we started the beta


We have nothing to hide and if you have any questions please post here.
If you don't like something, please feel free to tell it here too.
If Ovh wants to the best, we have to fix all what is bad. If you have
very technical questions, I will love it too

So your basically looking at racks that feed off some sort of S.A.N. Id imagine thats a great way too save on costs, and it also gives you an ON DEMAND solution for storage, "you want some more space, sure no problem", instead of having too take a server down for a hdd swap out. If you offer them low enough, which it looks like your aiming too doo, then you can virtually watch the whole VPS market dissapear and be replaced with your RPS solution.

and I noticed you do like too talk Octave When I was looking at ovh a few months back I stumbled into the german ovh forum and saw you trying answering peoples questions over their which in my opinion is a brilliant thing too see.

On another note, your control panel is fantastic. I havent seen as good a contol panel as you have on any other host Ive used so well done on that.

Whilist I remember, their are two things in the cpanel that dont do anything, those are under the additional services category.
Gamepro and Tel 2 pay, when I click on them they just goto a 404 page not found, dont know if you guys knew that so thought Id just mention it.

I think it's great what you are doing although I found out about OVH on Friday and it took me a few hours to work out whether your offer was genuine or not. From what I have seen so far OVH is a good company and now you've explained more about yourself and the company I feel reassured that your offer is genuine and that there are no hidden surprises waiting.

The german market is going in the right way. Ovh moves the lines.
I think you will see quickly the same in UK's market: some hosters will change
the offers. It's the rules of the market. I love it: the best wins. The
french market is more crazy: we are working right now on a new concept of
private server: RPS Real Private Server, not Virtual Private Server. You
have your own CPU, RAM, 100Mbps per RPS. No a part of a CPU like VPS is.
You have no hard disk. It works with iSCSI. 10Gb, max 1Tb. It should
be ready in 2-3 weeks for less that 10 pounds /mo ... well, we started the beta
test with the true customers: 4 hours = 200 RPS was ordered ... 4 weeks
after second step of beta: 6 hours = 600 RPS ... I hope 100 dedicated
servers in UK will enjoy some of you. 3 days ? 1 week ?

Ovh works on FR, BE, DE, ES, PL market. We are 120 guys. Our network
and use of the links http://weathermap.ovh.net/backbone The forum is
public and openned. You can find out some videos that I posted about
our network (sorry it's in french) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLkFwXiK1vQ
We have 26000 dedicated servers in our own datacenters (we have 2
datacenters and build a new one). About 1'000'000 websites hosted.
We have nothing to hide and if you have any questions please post here.
If you don't like something, please feel free to tell it here too.
If Ovh wants to the best, we have to fix all what is bad. If you have
very technical questions, I will love it too

Sorry for my english. I'm not from our UK's team. I'm from sysadmin
team in France. And I like to talk

Its all about word of mouth really Oles....And looking at the amount of people IVe told about it, I think you might just have a winner here in the good old uk !!!!!

Its about time someone started offerring good speced, decent bandwidth`d servers and if you crack it, Ill be honest, in the uk, the prices your offerring on the spec of servers your offering, no one can really get near OVH.

I dont know how your german market is, but the thing about here in the uk is that people take you for what you offer....So if its 100mbit, or gbit, and they get it and dont get what they beleived they would, their very forthcoming, much like I imagine the germans are...

Hats off to you all for doing what your doing, if the prices and specs and bandwidths are what they are, then you guys will own the market And I hope they are, because those 100mibt and gbit specs you guys offer are second too none...

The proof is in the pudding ! So lets all eat, and see how good the pudding is

Hi,
18 months ago we propose 100 dedicated servers on the DE marker since
we wanted to find out all the bugs in the ovh-de's system. The german
customers were very quickly to order all 100 servers: 3 days. They
helped us very much with lot of feedbacks.

That's is why we propose 100 dedicated servers on the UK marker: we are
close to be ready to start UK's market. But I have a question: how much
time will UK's customers take to order 100 dedicated servers ? more or
less that DE ? )
