The DEDIBOX® LT is only a bit more and has double the RAM and more guaranteed premium bandwidth, though they have said the guaranteed bandwidth is just marketing as you get a 1gbps connection rather than being capped to that speed

ya saw that but i was looking at the

DEDIBOX® CLASSIC + GEN2 its only 8gb of ram but i ordered one anyway had it about 1 week with proxmox on it and have to say network not been down yet the speed to the net seems fast. Don't think ill be getting a new sys server. Ram is nice but the cost is to much to run projects that i don't make a lot of money on.

I was lucky i got one the £3 KS so ill be staying with OVH for that. its cheep backup space. (unless i lose this server like i did with the ks16 as i could not pay it! And no billing support.

So it turns out the solution to turnover is...

Suspend dedicated servers for several months in order to get rid of a large proportion of customers.
Then once the server offers resurface theres a much smaller number of customers to deal with.

Problem solved?

One more anti-customer practice from OVH and I'm jumping ship. Over the last year they've increased prices, removed features, changed rules and given no warning on it other than Oles's Twitter, which if you don't speak French, you can't read.

Prices still better then other companies. New grouping idea actually better and cheaper then previous grouping-ranges especially for pro usage. And i found setup fees useful because less turnover and less tickets with lame question means better support for others.

Was waiting for better a option to get Virtual Rack and Private network and now I love the Infrastructure group.

Either that, or with the age-long "Sold Out" period they've just kept building and installing servers to fill the racks, which would explain the limited server options now on offer (which in turn translates into "we knew all along what the plan was, but wanted to test your patience").

Hmm ...

I'm tempted to order a FS-8T with the software raid5. (It has 2 x 4 TB)
Rather like the very pushy salesman in Currys who tried to push an anti virus package on me when I bought an Acer One with Linpus Linux pre installed.
I told him if he could install it while I waited, I would buy it

...yikes, is all I can say.
The servers are on par, price wise, with higher priced providers, who actually provide support to their clients, with timely responses to problems.
Unless there's a fundamental change in the support policy, I can't see a reason for people to buy these expensive servers.

Uhmm, judging by SoYouStart the mSP's have now doubled in price?

Am I missing something here? Previously they were € 40.99 a month and now there's a setup fee of € 49.99

I got much better speed to OVH now.
And a little better at home, ranging from 2-7 MB/s (i have a 140 Mbit download home connection)
Jumps a lot.

If anyone else have already purchased one for testing etc, please give some feedback as to the general usage speeds

Too bad the small Dedibox SC Gen2 is sold out atm..

I have to admit, the setup prices just completely put me off ordering any other servers. To me it is daylight robbery charging more than the servers value to "setup" a server - which we all know is basically pressing a button, if that.

I wouldn't mind a £25 setup fee, but £50? Crazy money.

Depending on the SAN performance you could put yourself a small private cloud together, very quickly and very cheaply. I've got to try one just to see what they are like.

Nope

Click the Union Jack in the top right hand corner and take a look

The €30 server looks pretty good, not as good as my mSP though, so will stick with that unless it explodes soon!

Looks they are going to be very busy soon unless OVH remove the setup fees and become "competitive"

It is all very well putting setup fees on all servers to reduce turnover, but reducing turnover and driving customers away to the competition are not the same thing.

OVH playing a dangerous game here.

P.S. Do OVH or Oles have any involvement in Online.net?

They're not. Their website as well as control panel can be selected between (proper!) English and French, and I've had no trouble ordering... Oops... I meant... "looking around"

This could't have been the result from the recent questionnaires, surely? I didn't take part in them by choice, so not sure what exactly had been asked. But I have a feeling that once again, Oleon completely ignored things... And this has become par for the norm.

I see that my price/performance ratio is getting worse with time.
Features I paid for originally (because they added value to me) have been removed.
I'm only hanging aroud to see what OVH do for existing customers, my reading of the French pages suggests it will be nothing, in which case the best information on these forums for the last three months has been OVH compeditor websites.

OVH no longer stand out from the crowd and have a poor/terrible support reputation. Luckily, I have not needed hardware support yet.
Why would I stay with OVH?
Why would I buy a new server at OVH?

The only reason I have is inertia ... and thats not good enough.

I have to admit oles/OVH, you've left a lot of us now seeking an alternative with your recent moves. You've literally priced us out of using any of your options. I'm sure there are quite a few of us in this boat too.

While I am OK with the setup fee (it could be 25GBP...a reasonable amount), since it does force people to keep a server longer, the raising of prices across the board seem like an illogical solution to reduce server turnover.

I know I am actively looking at LW as my first alternative, I might have to settle for slightly lower specs, but at least they've been consistent all throughout.

this whole thing made me lol so hard i think i need a fresh pair of pants!

So first Oles goes all nuts and oversell cheap server to attract new costumers which cannot be accomodated and in the process alienates the existing ones.

Than for various months noone is able to get a new server.

To top that, people that wants to get a new server has to go through questioning as if you were a know drug lord trying to cross the border after arriving on a plane from Bolivia.

Now the icing on the cake, put the prices up so noone will want to come to OVH.

Sure enough there should not be any issues with turnover from now on.

OVH must still offer the kimsufi range and continue to offer cheap servers, otherwise, OVH is utterly pointless to a lot of people I know.

http://www.ovh.co.uk/dedicated_servers/kimsufi_16g.xml that is the server that needs to stay.

Ahh reading up http://forum.ovh.co.uk/showthread.ph...uStart-com-SYS now I see whats happening look at the french version of SYS guys thats where the £20-40 servers are.

What about SYS? We need to be able to move our existing IPs to these servers, otherwise you have priced us out of OVH. Also this says OVH.co.uk 2014, but the prices are all in Euros, is the UK last, again?

€82 is a lot for a entry level server, unless you are going 'premium', but there is not much evidence of OVH being a 'premium' provider at the moment.

Hello,

The long-awaited 2014 range is coming.

First: Thank you

Thank you to all our customers who have continued to trust us during the "Sold Out" period. Thank you also for having participated in all the discussions about the end of the "Sold Out" and ideas that we've tried to gather in this new range of servers.

We hope that the results of these two months of work will meet your expectations. We are very happy to get out from this period of reflection and questioning for the new business plan to find why we are here :

To provide infrastructure for your projects.

Many changes. It will probably take 10 minutes before entering into the logic of the 2014 range to enjoy all the power of this new range.

Do not hesitate to ask us to clarify some details if needed.

Here is a summary to take in hand the new range in less than 15 minutes.

The logic
------------
We have split the servers between "no option" on SYS and "added value" servers at OVH.

At OVH you have "all inclusive" servers, ready to use for 3 types of uses: Enterprise, Hosting and Infrastructure. You can customize the hardware and some features.

We removed "professional use".

Servers are "all inclusive" at OVH and start from €81.99/month for the 3 ranges.

Purpose
--------
3 server ranges for 3 purposes. This segmentation is not strict, ie you can use the server for another usage "if it's better"

3 purposes:

*Enterprise:
- WEB , Email, Intranet, Extranet
- Collaborative Tools
- Big server to "do everything"

*Hosting
- Hosting platform
- Virtualization
- Server pooling

*Infrastructure
- Multi-datacentre Private network
- The virtual rack alias vRack (c)
- Tailored-made server

Technically speaking, we can distinguish 3 ranges by saying that for the same server price you have the choice between:
- Enterprise with "2 x more RAM"
- Hosting with "Free IP Failover"
- Infrastructure with "private / vrack network"

IPs
------
We've simplified everything .

On Business / Hosting / Infrastructure, you have the public network. On this public network you can point 16 FO IPs + 256 RIPE IPs.

16 FO IPs cost €1.99 per IP per month - FO IP unit ( / 32)
- Small RIPE IP blocks (IP 4/8/16 )

For the following 256 IPs, it is wholesale RIPE IP blocks (IP 32/64/128/256 ) and it costs €0.99/IP/month.

Except for Hosting servers where the 16 IP FOs are free (instead of €1.99/IP ) and depending on the type of Hosting server 1/2/4 RIPE IPs out of 32 IPs are also free instead of €0.99/month. To summarise : ( 16IPs + 32IPs ) or ( 64IPs + 16IPs ) or ( 16IPs+ 128IPs ) provided with the server "all inclusive" .

On Infrastructure , you have the vRack on the private network. You can enable routing in the router and vrack absolutely anything you want. There is no limit on the number of IP FO units ( / 32) or on the IPE IP block. The cost is €0.99/IP/month .

Hardware
--------
- The server hardware is Customisable
- RAID SOFT default option:
- RAID HARD
- Hybrid RAID SOFT
- Hybrid RAID HARD
- On OVH / Infrastructure / HG optional
In addition to RAID / Hard you can personalise
- The CPU
- RAM

Many customers have contacted us to make an order during the "Sold Out" period . We've contacted again by giving a token to order before everyone else . The 24H "sunrise" period.
From Friday we will reopen the orders to everyone and start delivering high volume .

The installation costs are €99 / €199 / €299 according to the range of servers . They will evolve over time to regulate the turnover.

Note :
- EG -32 with vrack from €81.99 p/m
- SP -64 4 cores / 8 threads with 64GB to €81.99 p/m
- The HOST servers with AMD Opteron 6c/8c/16c
- SP -256 2xE5 - 2670v2 (20 cores/24 threads) for €299 p/m
- The E5- 16xxv2 (version 2) and E5- 26xxv2 (version 2) range which is 30% more powerful than the present range (compared to the same model number) . example:
E5- 1620v2 is 30% more powerful than E5 -1620
E5- 1650v2 is 30% more powerful than E5 -1650
E5- 2650v2 = E5-2670
- The Big- HG going perfectly for the job of Big Data with the new Intel Xeon
E5- 2687Wv2 (16 cores/40 threads)
E5- 2690v2 (20 cores/40 threads)
E5- 2697v2 (24 cores/48 threads) are able to take up to 36 disks of 4TB SAS

Servers will start to be delivered from tomorrow / day after tomorrow.
Shipping time is 120 seconds and custom servers are aimed for 4 Hours.

In late January, SP- 512, 256 and HOST- HOST- 512 is expected if we are asked for them

Please give us your feedback and thank you again for your patience.

All the best

Octave
