As long as you renew your old server, OVH will keep it the way it is (so far, they've always honored this).

As for HD space... If your old Kimsufi has 2 HD's, you could benefit from RAID 1. It gives you less total storage, but if one HD fails, your data remains safe.

The new servers only have 1 HD. They may have more space, but if it fails, everything on it is gone. So you really need to ensure you create regular backups of important data.

Other than that, there's no longer the option for 1 Gbps connectivity and extra IPs are 1.00 per month, rather than the one-off RIPE fee and "professional fee".

Yes, it's configured to 100Mbps on the switchport.

I'm curious, is there any way to get a 1gbps connection with any of the new KS series servers the same way as kimsufi used to manage it? (through the purchase of professional options+the 1gbps switchport)
Of course, all the previous servers will have to be honoured for as long as you renew them.

But with the new Kimsufi servers, there is no way to get the 1Gbps port. This way, the difference from Kimsufi and ovh.co.uk is clearly defined.

On the KS 16 or 24G being i5/i7 CPU will these be able to run ESXi and run a few virtual machines?

I see the Failover IP is 1 month upto 3 or upto 32 RIPE.

But for some simple VM's is well priced compared to OVH SP range.

Good for testing, not for redundancy.

Thanks

My friends that was connected at 1Gbps got more than 100Mbps to the internet. I don't remember if it was up or down though.

It is misleading, but really it's just stating that there's a gigabit NIC in the machine which I'm sure is correct. Nowhere does it state that it's connected at 1 Gbps.

I'm not defending OVH on this BTW. It's just really sneaky advertising and they're going to gat a lot of complaints if it remains.

Andy
28-05-2011, 20:00
I believe that part is a little misleading as OVH staff have said it is an error and servers should be 100Mbps for the whole Kimsufi range, however it is over-ridden by the 100Mbps guaranteed listing.

Neil/Mark or someone else from CS, can you please have it amended?

28-05-2011, 19:58
Damn me you're right I apologize. But when I checked I somehow must have skipped the Network connections part and stayed only to NIC :@

Andy
28-05-2011, 19:52
Stops at 11.8 what? MB/s? That's normal, it's a 100Mbps server.

"GUARANTEED BANDWIDTH: 100Mbps"

100Mbps = 12.5MB/s

Not misleading in the slightest.

gased
28-05-2011, 19:49
I can't understand how none of you is furious with this misleading advertising? I bought a 16G, and guess what, download stops at 11.8 :/ Well should I ask for a refund or I'll never get one AGAIN???

Misleading advertising is something illegal here in UK oles....

Up until the time they tell us to renew the contract by clicking Agree and putting you into the same 'limited' setup as the new Kimsufi range. And you'll either have to Agree or find a new host...

Doubt we'll see any Ripe Blocks ordered now if its 1 per IP, only can have 32 anyway which means the NIC is capped to 100MB.

Wheres the link to the FS series? Discontinued?

Hi all,

I have just received an email from OVH saying that my new kimsufi has been deployed. I logged into the manager to find that it has no fail-over IP's included.

But as Razakel said, I am able to transfer existing fail-over ips to it.

They removed any mention of Professional Usage from the new Kimsufis, it says 1/month/IP now.

I know that previously the 3 IP cap only applied to creating new failovers. If that failover already exists on one server, you can move it to another server, even if it already has 3 IPs on it. You just can't create a new failover for a server that already has 3.

I don't think they've changed that.

I don't care about paying the 1 its the IP I really need to keep. If anyone from OVH can confirm that the failover IP can be moved as planned I'll be very grateful.

Single HD though. More that can go wrong. Nevertheless, awesome value for the price and glad it's simplified for the KS range, rather than offering similar options as the OVH range whilst they aren't really classified as "professional".

- can I access my NAS from kimsufi? Will this internal traffic be gigabit or 100mbit?

They can find servers very easily. That's why each rack has it's own identity and then each server has its own identity too. But for security reasons they won't change HDD's. That's the biggest reason and you'll be hard pushed to find a DC who will too.

It'll probably be different in the UK since we have traffic series Kimsufis. I think the French Kimsufis had always a maximum of 100Mbps OVH <-> Internet, and the 1Gbps ports were only useful for internal traffic.

17-05-2011, 20:53
Yeah it is stupid but i guess they forgot to remove it after removing the professional option. The pr option allowed for 1Gbps upgrade or stick with 100Mbps, hence the gigaethernet port.

Hello,
We confirmed the new range on Friday, Kimsufi of 2011. The site just went live and you can order them. Delivery is 1H, 7 days is max. It expected deliver the first
servers tomorrow...

What's new? In contrast to the range that OVH meets the needs of our customers, the range Kimsufi meets our competitors. It is therefore our updated Kimsufi offers towards the market in France and Europe. Then in few days these offers will be proposed for U.S. customers ...

More:
http://www.kimsufi.com/fr/ks/

The range comes in subsidiaries during the week.

Octave
