Same happened to me. I believe it's because the payment never left "pending" status and therefore wasn't "refunded", it was just refused by them.

... but I've just noticed that people are waiting from previous month oO.

I've called OVH 05/08/2013 about ETA and realized that it can take up to 10 days, but why OVH did not said that there is such a big late and give ETA like one month or so?

The second order I made, that never got past pending on PayPal was cancelled by OVH. Just sent a ticket off about the order I made on the 26th asking whether to expect the server or not, the payment has been marked as complete for around 9 days and the server actually appears under "orders in progress".

Whats going on with these orders is beyond me, I ordered 2 of the new ks range servers and also an sp one so far I have an sp and new ks waiting to go through, the other ks one they have returned the money back to my card ,,or is the problem as ovh have not said yes to taking the money as 6 days is too long !!.
They emailed me yesterday to say it was all ok and just waiting for the servers to come in. the out EU would not come into it as i am in UK and my other 3 ks servers are the old range so not affected. would it not be better to just change the price etc of our current servers to the new ones ie- ks2 and ks i5 16 gig and just let us keep the ips we have already and bring the new rules in as it seems stupid to have to reload everything when the old range is virtually the same, as most of us just want some new ks.s as beta testers and upgrade to a sp so we can add ips etc etc also would be better for ovh too with all the new orders, ok some old basic ks ones may be better or worse than the the new 2.49 jobs but it swings and roundabouts for the basic ks2 range.

According to LowEndBox, they added the EU exclusion to the fine print a day after making the packages available (along with a bunch of changes to the cores), etc. I was excited, so I ordered the same day as the announcement. If the change was made, it would have been nice of OVH notified me the reason for canceling, but oh well.

At least I am moving to the UK shortly and can order then.

Hi all,

Today I called OVH regarding the status of my canceled order for a new KS server. I ordered through OVH.IE, since I live in the US. OVH mentioned that they canceled my order (without notification) because I live outside of the EU and they are not selling new KS servers to those outside the EU. The representative mentioned this may be a temporary thing until the backlog is clear.

Just posting this in case someone wonders why their invoice is canceled

Best,
Zach

I think you can choose your server from the panel, then click Invoices, then something like "Align expiration dates", then choose date that suits you for example 15th August, confirm, then select that server and click renew.

ESXi doesn't like to work with NAT, at least not without going through extra steps of creating VMs just for that purpose, which makes it a slow, convoluted system. KVM is much easier to use with NAT (simple iptables rules) and I suspect Xen would be too, though haven't used that in ages. KVM runs on anything that has VT.

But if you just want to run Linux inside the VM, might as well consider OpenVZ or a simple LXC because its lighter on the system. The latter is not 100% production ready, IMO - it has a few things that really should be patched up, but if you can work around them, then its a better alternative to OpenVZ and doesn't require VT or a special kernel (stock kernel). I use LXC on a KS2G.

As for the question about a single VM on a machine: It's good if you want to be able to move the VM to another machine in one fell swoop. Stop it on one, copy the image/rootfs over to the other machine, start it back up. Quicker than restoring from backup, making sure everything's there, etc., etc.

Ahhh Xen and I have a long and arduous relationship. I compiled a xen kernel for my OVH box but could never get it to work properly. If you google about there are a few links about NAT port forwarding with iptables. It might take a while, but it's possible - had it running on a server at home.

So it's confirmed that the new ones don't support ESXi? Guess I'll just switch to the lowest OVH then. Still cheaper and more powerful too.

7. Configure NAT to portforward 443 and 902 to your ESXi Address
8. Likewise, portforward for all other VM's.
9. Assign your VM's the NAT interface as their gateway, or run DHCP.

I think the only limitations for the above is that you cannot run a secure webserver (i.e. https://) behind the NAT, as 443 is needed for vSphere.

This may work, I haven't tested it yet but plan to within the next week or so.

What's the point in only running one VM? Just use a standard distro and save yourself the hassle

It depends. You can use one IP address and multiple VMs with NAT. That's what I do.

In fact, I'm just using LXC on two KS2Gs. The partition the containers live on is a DRBD partition, synced over an IPSEC link. As these still have a failover IP if one server dies, the LXC container on the other KS2G starts, the failover IP moves over and everything is running like it was on the server that died - all within 1 minute.

Granted, DRBD over an IPSEC link using an Atom CPU isn't exactly made for speed. But these are just two servers I use for LDAP, Puppet and the e-mail master (low load, except memory usage).

You can still accomplish the same without a failover IP, especially now that the KS2G is so cheap. Just get yourself two of the larger ones for the HA setup, and plant the K2SG in front of them, directing the traffic to the server that's live.

If you get one of the KS16G's with VT, you can even use a lightweight virtualization like KVM, which will allow a wider range of OS'es to be installed. You could even use multiple KVMs if you want - just NAT whatever ports you want to the appropriate VM.

It all depends on your imagination what you do with them

This is what's confusing me too - it even says on the first post that these are designed for doing things like virtualisation (it's mentioned by name!) yet you cannot choose ESXi as a distro to provision them with.

I brought it up on the phone with OVH this morning and their representative said that the CPU mustn't support ESXi - even though the VT option is ticked...

If it could virtualise and I could get an /29 RIPE block I would dump my current 16G and get one of these in a heartbeat.

For personal and testing use one IP should be enough, as even with virtual machines you could easily just set the server to use a virtual network and hand out virtual ip's to the guests, thus not using an OVH IP. The only issue would be you can't point multiple websites to those virtual machines.
Problem is things like proxmox / xenserver.etc need an IP for their management.

Be Nice if OVH were able to assign a RFC 1918 address for that and offer a VPN/Tunnel to use it but I think that would end up costing them a fair bti to implement. Alternatively allow more than one IPv6 address and have the management on Ipv6

Will GRA open up to all the other servers as well?

oles@ovh.net
25-07-2013, 18:10
Hello,

We have just opened the biggest data centre in Europe with a capacity of 350,000 servers. It's called GRA, located in Gravelines (Northern France https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravelines). The works took several months to complete, and the DC has been operational for the last 3 months for internal purposes.

We worked on the new Kimsufi version in secrecy with one goal: to offer a real dedicated server for less than 5. After 6 months work, we are able to launch the server for ...only 2.49/month! We have completely reviewed the hardware, electrical infrastructure and network for maximum redundancy, but also to reduce costs. For example, we're no longer using UPS, each rack has 3 batteries instead that simultaneously feed a 220V/12V rectifier, which powers the servers directly with 12V. This is just one example of the creative thinking employed to fix problems specific to KS-2G. Unfortunately these innovations don't apply to the other ranges of servers.

The range
--------
We have 3 servers in the KS range:

KS-2G powered with an Intel ATOM, 2G RAM, a 500GB disk and a 100Mbps connection. Price: 2.49/month.

We also offer a KS-4G 4GB RAM, 2 x 500GB SoftRAID for 9.99/month and KS-16G powered with i5 Core VT with 16GB, and 2 x1TB for 19.99/month.

PS. The 2.49/month payment is very low and to avoid excess bank charges, payment is for 3 months minimum.

We have changed how we route the servers to reduce the costs and it's no longer possible to order additional IP FailOvers. It's a simple and quick routing, without options.

We will start deploying the servers early next week.

Why this server?
---------------------
