Sorry, I know, simply my professional range servers can't even reach 2 month uptime of hardware due to various network failures, one example is DDOS protection was down (failed) last month on - 7 or 9th of September, if someone from support don't remember, I still do remember and point at topic on webhostingtalk.com website.

Lets do conclusion at OVH today:
- DDOS system still in Beta stage, failed last month even affected this forum.
- Firewall system still in Beta stage, failed on 24 October 2013, 15:54:16 recovered 24 October 2013, 15:56:49 according to pingdom.com
- Control panel - managerv3 - Beta stage, uncompleted and contain bugs
- Control panel - managerv5 - Beta stage, impossible to do anything except topup account with money
- Control panel - https://www.ovh.com/manager/dedicated/login.html (I don't what version and really don't care)- Beta stage, as the control is uncompleted
- Manager Director - Beta stage - don't know how to run huge company as never done before and still think that 200K - 300k customer can be without any official communication or without 30 day notification of contract and change the prices and plans every 2 minutes!

There was me thinking this thread was about a HA setup.

Another thing is, as the mailing list has gone, I assume this DDOS service is in limbo now? It's actually still in beta IMHO, I saw a lot of people getting false positives, etc. Plus, Octave himself, needs to set up "profiles" on the VAC for different services, and since he's not around, I assume some servers are up & down.

simply proves that their protection is useless and does opposite effect, with this protection people getting blocked or your server get off-lined due to OVH failure to deliver or complete the system.
All servers have the DDOS Protection including your old Kimsufi as it is done at network level, if this server is attacked then the Vac system will be activated.

We're talking network uptime not server uptime. DDoS protection is there to protect the network.

So far my old Kimsufi 2012 better perform than new 2013 range of un-professional range of servers - mSP range

The DDDOS protection is in auto mode, but firewall can be switched off completely.

I had last month downtime due to failure of anti DDOS protection and today 3 minutes due to firewall test.

You can control with beta v5 manager:
https://www.ovh.com/manager/dedicated/login.html
or via API

Hi all,

Today I completed the test, put 1 server behind firewall and had downtime for 3 minutes, as for the rest server without any French "protection".

My recommendation: If you want to have 100% uptime DO NOT USE FRENCH FIREWALL OR DDOS PROTECTION as still beta and undeveloped. As from previous experience they had downtime on French "protection" last month... even forum.ovh.co.uk was offline
