I wouldn't recommend an RPS for anything other than a Socks5 proxy server (PuTTy Tunnel).

I had rtorrent open, and did a load *.torrent command and before you know it - it must have either crashed or disconnected.

I wonder if using gfs or sshfs and installing rtorrent on my SP box and doing it that way would make it more stable?

Or keeping the files I am torrenting stored in the 512mb RAM provided (only 200mb available space though )

I run a major gaming network on an RPS and I know from experience that you should not get an RPS as OVH is very unreliable when it comes to RPSes mainly because I've had a total of 30 days of downtime in the past 5 months. Support is also really bad because you usually have to wait 6-7 days before anything happends.

I'll learn what is needed to make it work perfectly.
Remember there's also the Kimsufi range:

Also, OVH's servers are located in France - take geographical location into account if you're running a game server. You'll find there's quite high latency to, say, the US.

Yes, if you're a masochist. RPSes are low-performance servers designed for low loads. It'll handle TeamSpeak and some small websites fine, but avoid it like the plague for gaming.

Yes, but you're responsible for the server.

No, it's a dedicated server that just doesn't have a hard disk. Data is stored on one of OVH's servers instead.

Well, it's just a Linux server, so it'll run whatever you want on it.

See above.

Don't take this the wrong way, but based on the questions you've asked, you might not have the knowledge and skills to run a server from somewhere like OVH. OVH's servers are self-managed, so they'll only fix it if the hardware blows up. You're on your own for setting up, configuring, running and maintaining the software on it.

You might be better off going to a dedicated gaming ISP. There's plenty around.

They dont have much stock so you might be waiting a while for your order.

( just be aware of the backlog , call the office ask them if they have them in stock, ssd from ovh are known to have a long waiting queue )

Ah, cool! Well, then it would work provided you have the MySQL server somewhere else (like you said: rps+mysql = fail)

1. You can host anything on your server.
2. Yes, many people resell services on OVH servers.
3. A RPS has a dedicated CPU, RAM and NIC. However, the storage is on a shared iSCSI array that performs worse than a local hard drive.
4. You get root access to your choice of linux distribution, so you'd probably want to manage the server over SSH. Reboots and re-installations are done via the OVH manager.
5. I'm not sure that there's anything like this for the OVH manager.

RPS uses iSCSI network storage as its hard drive,

you can install anything you want on it, but keep in mind, the nature of iSCSI is a networked storage device, which means your server is as fast as your network connection and storage load at any given time.

Yes, you can host game server + webhosting + teamspeak - but this is not a good idea to do so all at the same time.

software used to manage the RPS ? its a Linux server, open source you choose how to manage it, google around for that.

administration ranks? linux command sudo ? , i am not sure what do you mean.

anyhow , webhosting+game+ts , will surly overload your server.

I would go for sp ssd - http://www.ovh.co.uk/products/superplan_ssd.xml
its great for game servers!

p.s.
expect some backlog ;-)

Hello to all members of OVH.

I'm considering opening a multigaming community with high expectations in their services provided to the public.
And we chose the OVH to host all of our services but we still have some doubts about the service provided by OVH which we would like clarified before purchasing them.


RPS's Questions

1. - We can host for gameservers, webhosting and TeamSpeak?

2. - We can resell services to third parties?

3. - How a RPS works? (equal to a VPS?)

4. - What is the software that we will use to manage the RPS?

5. - We can create administration ou management ranks with diferent permitions?
