Myatu with the touchdown!

OVH isn't way more expensive than anyone unless you need stupid levels of bandwidth, at which point I'll say, have you actually seen how bad redstations bulk network is?

Who cares about specials, you can't build a business on specials... With OVH I can be fairly sure the price will not change over the life of the server, or certainly at least not for a year. That makes it simple to build a business..

Redstation, I have no idea what the price will be in 3 months time, or if I can continue to rent servers at the special price (hint: you can't, that is the point of specials)...

Then have a look at redstation for example. EG offer is good if you don't want to push data over 200mbit, otherwise almost any host beats it.

What's the ETA for these servers being available from the ovh.co.uk UK website?

elcct
27-10-2012, 15:03
So i am not sure what to do then... i can afford to pay for bandwidth, but if for example new EG will be capped at 200mbit it will make more sense to stick with old offer.
Basically my website sometimes peaks at 600mbit, but does use about 30TB of bandwidth, so buying guaranteed 600mbit is not a good option, because most of the time it will not be used = waste of money.

This is not good. From what I recall, the last time this was the case (years ago for the UK), the only way they had to enforce this was by moving servers into "low priority" mode.

Anyway, my point still remains that even a single 100Mbit SP should be making you far more money than the cost, even of an MG.

EG has 200mbit and SP has 100mbit, so two SP will have 200mbit if you set up you app cleverly.
If you want to have 300mbit for your EG you pay 100 eur, but if you want another 100mbit for your SP you just buy another SP cheaper with bonus of additional hardware redundancy.
That's also why they did OVH-OVH to be 100mbit, to restrict that type of usage.

If they enable 1gbit for OVH-OVH on SP range, it would be better than EG, MG at any level.

True, however, if you run data intensive storage applications or db, and you only get the same 2x2TB, are they better? Especially when you can "cloud" multiple SP's?

i still don't know what sort of website(s) you want to run on whatever number of SPs, but given how powerful they are if you really can't afford an EG instead of an SP (to get the gbit), then clearly you need a rethink.

Anywho.. Limiting them to 100Mbit because people won't buy the EG makes no sense, for one the EG has double the ram. If they were gbit perhaps some people would like the cost saving, but from the perspective of people who'd be reselling them (vps, seedbox, whatever), the EG is better value for money anyway.
I am talking about dedicated server for a website. But even for reselling SP is better value for money now. If you buy two of them, you get more cores, drives and same amount of memory and bandwidth than if you buy EG or MG.

For EG range they should give more bandwidth, bigger drives (SSD) and cpu of MG

For MG range they should give more bandwidth, bigger drives and dual cpu like E5 2620

Otherwise the pricing doesn't make sense, as two SP servers are better than one MG and are cheaper.

Welcome to Dedicated Server hosting business model (as it's been since 1998). Any hosting company that intro's new lines have "dumps", it's the nature of the model, and nothing out of ordinary; and they would have processes in place to recoup a good portion on the deactivation of lines. There's a reason why most companies leave a year or so for big changes to their lines, but downgrading storage (after over a year) is backward. For some time, OVH has been leading on many fronts, RAM, CPU & HD... this is just a step back, especially as db, app, vz sizes grow, and require just as much more HD along with the RAM. (side: I generally keep any box for more than 12-24 months regardless of the offer).

Along with my previous comments on the HG setup fees as purchases of the hardware (you don't own), I refer you to my previous comment(s) about possible truckloads (maybe Stobart's trailers) of Vino being delivered during the discussions when these pricing/offerings are set

Sure you can't, but CPU that is in SP range (E3 1245v2) is newer generation than it is in MG (E5 1650), so faster clock also makes up for 2 cores less.

In cpu benchmark that E3 model scores better than E5:

Intel Xeon E3-1245 V2 @ 3.40GHz 9,663
Intel Xeon E5-1650 @ 3.20GHz 9,573

I think for that reason they have limited SP range to 100mbit OVH-OVH because people wouldn't buy EG (EG has also slightly faster CPU than MG) or MG for something other than to proxy content from much better SP. (or use older 1gbit servers to proxy content)

It's probably related to the motherboard or something new that has a bug in Windows (which is odd because I thought manufacturers would have tested first and foremost against Windows).

The HG servers haven't changed at all (except for bw).

They're still doing the "mass infrastructure" approach however it has been tweaked a little bit so that they don't have to spend time chasing down people using multiple NIC handles.

There's no server bandwidth pooling right now though which makes it more expensive.

To me new offer looks quite disappointing.

CPUs are almost the same in terms of performance across SP/EG/MG ranges.
EG should have CPU of MG and MG should have dual E5 like 2620

120GB SSD drives seems to be a bit small - they are fine for Hybrid model, but SSD models should start with 240GB

I was looking forward to see new offer, because i need to upgrade my server to let my website grow and now i see competitors have much better offers.

Not sure if i stay with OVH...
