Is there still a waiting list for those in the US? I understand that a customer needs to send a copy of a valid ID and a utility bill of some sort? That's not a problem, just wondering if that's the case.

Thanks to OVH for allowing NA users to order! w00t!

Although you are right and I wont argue it....I just gave OVH the benefit of the doubt since they were an established company. I wasn't aware of these forums at the time and didn't know they had a very large resume of doing things such as this in the past (unfulfillable promises). All I knew about OVH is that they seemed to have several happy clients (from what i've seen on other forums) and have over 75,000 servers. I figured if they said something, such as accepting USA clients, they would be true to their word and make it happen. I couldn't see how they could have 75,000 servers if they were too flaky.

RIPE blocks can be assigned to anyone.

The only requirement for RIPE membership (i.e. being an LIR yourself and obtaining your own RIPE blocks). For that you need to have an address in Europe (some Asian and Middle Eastern countries are also covered by RIPE).

Im pretty much the same with RS.

I have VPS's and colocation servers with RapidSwitch and they are brilliant. If you are a customer of RapidSwitch they really make OVH's support look poor and their network is great too but you certainly pay the price for all that extra. If OVH was anything like RapidSwitch for customer support they could be one of the best providers in Europe. When I submit tickets I normally get an answer within 10-15 minutes, if your server goes offline for a technical reason they will soon get it back up.

Like already said though, the price difference means everything to some of us. OVH have low cost servers and to keep the prices low other areas must suffer.

Im not quite sure if this means that 'everyone' can apply to be 'trusted' or it is just from the countries mentioned?

Does it mean that we can order from OVH directly (if being accepted as 'trusted') or do we still have to use a reseller?

I would like to order from Denmark, and would have no problem being located in the UK data center (or for that matter, any other country whos staff can write in english).

This is what I am looking at for another solution I will be doing shortly, mainly due to their SLA's and the fact that they are owned by the iomart hosting group which owns I think 6 datacenters here in the UK.

I also have accounts with redstation and littleowlhosting. I have also been with memset. Both redstation and littleowlhosting offer permanent network connected KVM with virtual media - it is literally like you are sitting in front of the machine. The only issue with littleowlhosting is that their network tends to be 1MBs upload/download.

I can recommend any of the above with the network caveat@littleowlhosting. All three of them have pandered to my requests for a custom setup and all three of them have gone above and beyond in terms of support. Price is higher than OVH, for sure (but not that much) but the amount of time I have spent not having to get things working makes up for that in spades.

For example, I have 4x300GB SAS drives in RAID1 on dual Xeon@55xx with 16GB RAM for about 300/month with redstation (month by month contract). For littleowlhosting I have a HP GL380 G6 - 4x300SAS disks, 1 500GB SATA RAID 10 *with BBU*, dual Xeon@55xx with 16GB RAM for 300/month.

There are deals out there - contact the people by phone as they always give better deals than on their web.

I did consider rapidswitch but they said they couldn't offer virtual media with their KVM solution and I would need to send in a USB stick

ukservers.com are also worth a look - they quoted about 300 a month for similar specs as above with permanent KVM with virtual media.

I can confirm that the only advantage of OVH is the price.
You can't take anything what Octave said serious, because if he say "within 1-2 week" it would be most probably 3-6 months. Moreover if something wouldn't go as you want support response time is also quite poor and let's say when one of your clients is making sth bad on his vps (let's say he's spaming around) - most often they suspend your server first and then contact you that you have to reinstall it (and when you're luckly enough they let you make a backup copy), but wait a moment...reinstalling solve every problem? I guess there are many other solutions.
As Myatu said you better get prepared that every important policy changes won't be followed directly to your mailbox, but all you have to do is to check their forums as often as you could to grab news.
I suggest you to rethink all your plans about OVH. It's all good unless sth goes wrong on your side...

Speedy059
10-03-2010, 08:20
I don't understand why Octave would tell me in a email 2 months ago that we could order servers within 1 week. We took his word as a electronic verbal contract and planned to have servers here and revealed the news to our clients and potential clients. By ignoring our request to get more information on how to order servers, after 2 months have passed, questions the integrity of this company.

If the owner says that we can order in 1-2 weeks (2 months ago), and then to see that the staff have no knowledge of this is beyond me. I would assume that the economic principle of "diminishing returns" is in full affect here. As I'm assuming there is too many OVH employees, to many that proper communication cannot be dispatched clear enough for everyone to understand. Thus making it impossible for this company to do things in a timely manner as projected by the CEO. I'm making an assumption they have enough employees since many of them talk about it, but can get enough correlation to act on it. Quite sad that a CEO can have a vision of business growth but then to be stalled by his/her own staff? Diminishing returns is an obstacle that every business faces when they get big enough as it requires bigger efforts to accomplish small tasks.

If you are looking to plan ahead with OVH, then I suggest you don't. OVH is suffering from poor planning, which makes it hard for it to live up to its promised deadlines (some things supposedly available within "a few weeks" have been promised as far back as 2008); if things do become available, OVH tends to change it frequently and generally on extremely short notice (or without any notice at all). This is why I have refrained from using OVH for business purposes and merely use it for leisure (for which it's great).

Speedy059
28-02-2010, 18:37
Because I want to know if it's on the backburner or if it's something that is really happening within a week or so. Octave told me in an email a month ago it would be ready 3 weeks ago.

In order to plan our business model, this is important information I must have. And I can't get this information of the forum since everything is speculative.

We are trying to please our clients in Europe, which would mean the transit would be no different from your server, or anyone elses.

With the higher currency rate exchange, it would make no sense for us to buy OVH servers to stream bandwidth to the USA....be in our best interest to buy locally. I'm pretty confident OVH already knows this scenario, which is why they are opening up to other countries.
Try keyweb,leaseweb,server.lu

We don't really want transit as it will be for European clients. Yes we want OVH servers, however doesn't mean we want to stream bandwidth from USA to OVH or visa-versa.

nah I find it healthy competition

I am personally glad OVH are expanding the market - means customers will get a fair deal.

That said, let's see if OVH can beat £10 a month for a managed server, or charge you triple that on top of your server to keep it maintained - and considering we have been around since October 2003, I doubt we are a here today, gone tommorow company

Speedy059
09-02-2010, 20:16
And I don't understand the fuss over the 49.95 setup fee. That is nothing when you take into consideration the overall price of the server each month. These servers are literally dirt cheap and cannot be found anywhere else. Which is why I'm assuming people would rather complain than change providers, since they can't change providers unless they want to pay more.

Which is exactly what a "reseller" should be doing in the first place. Although, this is not the case when it comes to resellers of OVH products. They take advantage of the client through price jacking and non-existent support. I am interested in seeing if there will be a pricing difference to US residence for the lack of VAT.

I'm sure it hurts OVH's network when a lot of clients use their servers to upload/download copyrighted torrents all day.

BTW, they don't have to sell to the USA to receive DMCA complaints. They could still sell to 1 country and receive them. I don't quite understand your point.

great idea

my opinion a huge market share hosting and dedicated servers in Europe operated system WHMCS. and if OVH will not only API, but also provide ready-made module to integrate their services to this remarkable system. The result OVH be able to increase profits at the expense of a large number of customers in the world. and reduce costs for first-line technical support, you have a clear advantage over the rest - easy system management servers and affordable prices. Besides it, you'll be the first who will do it

la mise en place de nouveaux services afin de faire profiter l'ensemble

un certain temps, car nous avons grossit très rapidement et il faut
prendre le temps ... Et il nous reste de 2009, 3 pays à finir: MA, TN
et SN. C'est en cours ...

Pendant ce temps là de la digestion, on souhaite rester active au
niveau d'évolution d'Ovh à l'international. On prévoit vers la fin 2010
début 2011, le redémarrage de l'usine à copier les filiales. Le but
est donc de préparer le terrain de nouvelles vagues de création de
filiales en Europe (dans les pays où nous ne sommes pas encore
présents) mais surtout au niveau de RU, BR et USA.

Nous allons donc modifier nos procédures internes afin de "truster"
manuellement certains clients de ces pays (cas par cas) afin de
préparer avec eux ces marchés qu'on souhaite attaquer dans moins d'1 an.
Attaquer, oui cool, on n'est pas violent ... puis il faudra construire
les datacentres plus près de ces clients là, mais c'est une autre partie
du problème ... On va vous présenter une solution dans l'Ovh Mag ...

On pense que dans 2 semaines, on saura capable de proposer un service
de "trustage" manuel de tous les clients qui ne peuvent pas commander
pour l'instant chez Ovh. Une fois qu'un client est "trusted" il pourra
commander de la même manière que n'importe lequel client. On va en
même temps attacher ces clients par rapport à nos filiales qui savent
le mieux gérer ces clients là. Par exemple, IE/UK pour USA/CA, LT pour
RU,
PT pour BR ou ES pour AR.

OVH is expanding to markets where it was not possible to order before.
And this will be by doing additional checks for those who which to order.
Once their approval has been given, they can order from OVH.
But this looks like it is bound to be on a per user basis.
Looks like a lot of work for the Customer support team

Hello,
In 2009, OVH has several new subsidiaries. It was a
years very fast and we'll spend a good part of
2010 to integrate into the cosmos Ovh all these new teams.
The goal is to integrate into our thinking (which regularly shares
with you but in all the subsidiaries) feedback generated
locally in these new subsidiaries. Then taken into account in
the introduction of new services in order to avail all
our customers of all these new ideas. This work is going to take
some time because we grow very rapidly and we must
take time ... And we still in 2009, finishing in 3 countries: MA, TN
and SN. In progress ...

Meanwhile digestion, we want to remain active
level of evolution Ovh abroad. It is expected towards the end of 2010
early 2011, the restart of the plant to copy subsidiaries. The purpose
is to pave the way for new waves of creation
subsidiaries in Europe (in countries where we do not
present) but also at UK, USA and BR.

We are going to change our internal procedures to "trust"
manually some customers in these countries (case by case) to
prepare them with these markets being targeted for attack in less than 1 year.
Attack, so cool, it is not violent ... then it will build
the data centers closer to the customers there, but that's another part
the problem ... We'll present a solution in the OVH Mag ...

We believe that in 2 weeks, we will able to offer a service
of "trustage" manual to all customers who can not control
for now at OVH. Once a client is "trusted" it may
Order the same way as any client. It goes
same time attaching these clients from our affiliates who know
best manage these customers there. For example, IE / UK to USA / CA, for LT
UK, PT or ES for BR to AR.
