Server configurations are exactly the same (for SSD and Hybrid plans).
But the SSD prices were previously the same as the SATA disk prices.

For example, the EG09 SSD was the same price as the EG09 BestOf, even though the SSD had a pair of 80GB SSDs instead of a pair of 750GB disks, and 12GB of RAM instead of 8GB.

That was obviously a promotion, which has now ended.

If you think an extra 20 Euros is unreasonable for the SSD version as against the SATA version, how much extra do you think *is* reasonable?

I would forget looking at the pricing, the change is negligible for the upgrades (not counting the drunken spree on the HG setups - buying all the upgrades upfront) - I hope they're not bringing back the lunacy of 200mbps to internet per client.

OVH currently has 3-4 year ROI, the increase in price + rising BW costs makes total sense.

You would be smart to find another host in the next few months, as OVH's ponzi pricing comes to it's full fruition.

Price increases usually mean that they are near capacity and trying to slow down orders - or at least with other companies that is the standard process.

Maybe most of us (can) get ROI.

Firstly, if you have your old server you pay the same price.

All servers except from SSD and Hybrid have new hardware, you can now get the SP BestOF hardware in the SP Mini.

But if you want the old server models then order them quickly....

Basically, if you don't like the prices, move on - I'm sure Octave/Oles won't lose any sleep over it.

Afaiks, the only servers with not upgraded hardware are the SSD and Hybrid.
All the others have better hardware specs.

For example EG BestOF, same price, much better specs.

EDIT: both MG SSD and Hybrid have 24GB DDR3 instead of 16.

The hardware is also better, check it before complaining.

AMD servers now have the new HEXA core cpu, both EG and MG.

EG servers have 12GB DDR3 ram + better CPU + bigger disks.

MG servers have 24GB DDR3 ram + better disks.

As you might now.. OVH is based in France.
So every change will be applied first to the France customers.

There has always been a difference in price between France and other countries. No man overboard.. there is reason for it. That's not what I am willing to talk about.

Check the OLD pricing:


And the NEW pricing:


They increased the pricing, hardware remains unchanged. Just renamed the server plans. The changes which will soon be applied to other countries (at least that's what I am expecting):

SP-09 SSD + 20 Euros
SP-10 Hybrid + 10 Euros
EG-09 SSD + 20 Euros
EG-09 AMD + 10 Euros
EG-10 Hybrid + 20 Euros
EG-09 Max + 10 Euros
MG-09 SSD + 20 Euros
MG-09 AMD + 50 Euros
MG-10 Hybrid + 20 Euros
MG-09 Max + 10 Euros

F*CK OVH ... it's not the first time they increase their pricing.
They are getting too big and don't care about their customers, only MONEY MONEY MONEY is important. And well of course it needs to be profitable. But this is just insane.

It's not the first time.. I have seen many price increases. But this is just too much. I RECOMMEND EVERYONE TO MOVE TO
or a different company.
