Oles, could you pop one of the old SSD's you have laying around in these machines as well. One of the 120GB ones would be nice, then we can OS on that and raid the rest..!

I would hold off on ordering if you're thinking of using Windows because it looks like the OVH Windows install doesn't support GPT so you end up losing 2TB on C:

Unless anyody knows how to use GPT instead of MBR?

We are currently running an FS-10T, would any of these be a better deal?

Hello,

We are preparing a new range of backup servers which will be hosted in our new GRA datacentre. The aim is to offer you maximum safety for your data, thanks to the interesting geographical location of GRA: 100km from RBX, 600km from SBG and 7000km from BHS. This is the perfect site if you don't want to put all your eggs in one basket. You will also benefit from the inter-datacentre traffic included, and the servers with 1Gbps. It's basically ideal for creating a backup quickly and effectively.

ETA: 2 to 3 weeks.

It's an offer which continues to please, even though many customers involved in software development are moving en masse onto pCS and pCA, which are much easier to use and don't have any size restrictions. In general, when customers have more than 5TB data, they abandon server solutions to move to the Cloud.

Best wishes,

Octave
