I've got an mHG at the moment, I'm still a bit wary of internal congestion on the switches to do anything serious.

As an example, today I was pulling some stuff from my mHG box to my new EG64 Hybrid and the maximum speed I achieved was just over 100mbit.

Granted, the mHG is Strasbourg but I can pull that from Roubaix to my servers in a UK datacenter sometimes.

Unfortunately solution with HG servers is not economical. Maybe cheaper would be MG and vRack - but then MG are no longer on 10Gbps

Here:



Also Xeon E5 is incorrect, as CPUs in mHG are not E5

10Gbps "OVH to OVH" and "Internet to OVH". 750Mbps "OVH to Internet"

where have you seen otherwise?

mHG has 750mbps, as per panel.

Yes,

I have a couple of ESXi VMs running off a mHG at the moment but I have done KVM in the past too without problems.

IO is not very good, I've used far better and far worse.

Is it possible to run KVM virtual machine off NAS-HA partition at OVH?
