How would you re-price the servers?

It would make sense to run the nameserver using the cloud offering. Problem is that their cheapest cloud offering is more expensive that the KS 2G.

Out of ten:

RAM: 9
CPU Cores: 5
CPU speed: 5
HDD: 5
Network: 7
--ŽSpeed: 4
RAID: Soft 1
IP Addresses: 10
Support: hardware: 8 software: 0

Minimum spec is a machine running R2 DNS, i.e 2G

Interesting to see what others come up with.

Hi All,

Following the post from Oles today about the problems OVH face with "Turnover of Servers", I was wondering how you all rate the following:

CPU Cores
CPU Speed
Network Connection
Network Bandwidth
RAID - None vs Soft vs Hard
IP Addresses MAX (IPv4)

...Which of these affects your decision most when looking at your next server.

In my case, for the SP I have, I wanted the email support, Hard Raid, and multiple IP's. The 32 GB of RAM is far more than I need (my SPBo is currently sitting a 4 GB). (No, the other 28GB is not for sale )

Being an ar*e, I like to run my own Name Servers. For this I would need a very limited machine indeed. - Almost to the point the 2013 KS2G would be overkill.

Obviously different projects demand different servers, which is why I have such a random collection.

Your thoughts on what would be your minimum spec point?
