Possibly the 12 month contract for the 3rd server is because of this....

Imagine a customer wanted to purchase 5 servers for 1 month, then after this one month after using the resources they decided they no longer needed them and moved to another provider.

This would have meant that OVH would have invested in 5 new servers and now these servers would be "dormant". The 12 months contract for the 3rd server is kind of like a guarantee for OVH of a serious customer.

Other major companies may possibly not do that, however they may also be losing money this way (but they don't say anything).

Thats kinda stupid aint it?

what if customers want to order 5+ servers in one go, By not doing that they are loosing custom and money. They shouldnt put a limit on how many servers you can buy.

Do you see these major server companys doin that?

Indeed but what about people who just want 3 or 4 who are not buissness men.
I think they should up there limit.

Bruno do you no anything about breaking hardraid?

So what do they have to loose by renting 5 per month?
They always have stock.
So imo are they not loosing out on $$?
