Need help !! Cloud or kimsufi?

I would say Kimsufi, but get 2 so if one fails the other can continue until you get support on the other.

The vRAM in the cloud instances is pitiful and should not be there at all in my opinion, or you should at least be able to remove it to boost performance on the little real RAM you do have.

The cloud's downside:

The vRAM is essentially "super slow ram". You can't compare 10's of GB/s in throughput with a few hundred MB/s.

Additionally, the cloud doesn't have its own physical HDD, but its on a shared storage. That can be a bottleneck.

The cloud's upside:

It has better resilience (if the host node fails, the instance just boots up on another host node, you'd hardly notice it) and you get tech support.

That will obviously help with SLAs, or other uptime requirements.

So, in short, while the Kimsufi would be better performance wise, you'd be left dead in the water until support decides to talk to you about your Kimsufi that no longer works.

LOl they are useless.

So the dedicated ram on the kim is more powerful than the vram on the ssd?
Also the dedicated 1.6 dual core faster than 2.0 dual Vcore?

Thank you so much for your answer !

I have never had any problems with the Kimi, but remember it has no SLA. Not sure about the cloud though, someone else may know more info about how they have it setup @ OVH.

What is wrong with the French forum? I'm interested, is it too cheesey?

Come on guys .. Just asking technically .. what the best ? Dedicated or cloud with the spec above..PLease

Lol nothing like welcoming our French friends hey ha.

You might want to go the the French forum then,

We never really know what's going on this side of the channel.

Ask the French (!!!).

Well i can , as i am french !!! So if you had the choice what would you take?

09-11-2013, 17:38
Well at the moment you can't order Kimis (and are unlikely to get those offers again) so the cloud looks good for you. However I have never used OVH's cloud so I can't vouch for it.

Hi ,

I would like your help i do not know what to choose? i need the best performance , and speed

I do have a choice between:

Ovh VPS CLOUD : dual core 2.0 Ghz (vcore)+ 1gb ram + 4 ram ( vram on ssd )
kimsuffi Dual core 1.6 GHZ + 4gb ram dedicated.

I know it's not the same cpu and the cloud got 5 gb ram but on ssd ( vram).
Config exact:


I would like to run a web application which is using postsql or mysql ?

Please be sure before you answer and give me your expertise...

Thank you for your help
Best regards
