It's 2014... they restocked RBX0.1 - The planning meetings (ROFL) alone must use up at least 2-3 barrels each time:



New year, new mess.

i recall the days of them saying your 100Mbps was shared over all your servers. Definitely not something OVH want to go back to.

I still have a 10Gbps server and have been able to pull over 3Gbps from a network outside of OVH before (even though OVH says I have 750Mbps). If OVH adds 1500 to my bill, I'm just going to leave.

Exactly what I have been thinking

I'm currently getting about 10% - 30% packet loss from China Telecom to my server. I barely use 100GB of bandwidth per month. I would love to change my server to gold grade bandwidth if possible even if I have get a very small data quota.

Other Chinese ISPs seem to connect to BHS via the US and have next to no packet loss. So it is probably a case of bad routing.

Hmm... maybe I wasn't clear - as options are divided by Burstable, Premium and Gold, default traffic belongs to which category?

Indeed we had them in the past but I would like to point out that was part of the server packages, this is an option on top of the bandwidth you have with the new server ranges. This is aimed at customers that use more than what is guaranteed with the server, for example streaming or image hosting websites.

+1! OVH did this years ago, and it was a mess then and wouldn't expect it to be any different now. Your "How to" is still somewhere on here, Andy. Haha!

Way to go OVH. So much for listening to customer's input... One ear in, other one out.

Hello,

We will be offering 3 types of bandwidth on OVH servers for intensive use of the network. On servers with 1 Gbps connections, you will be able to use 1 Gbps bandwidth instead of 300 Mbps/400 Mbps, and on servers with 10 Gbps connections, you will be able to use 1 Gbps/2 Gbps/3 Gbps instead of 500 Mbps.

The 3 types of bandwidth are:

A) Burstable
1 Gbps at €150/month
2 Gbps at €290/month
3 Gbps at €430/month

B) Premium
1 Gbps at €400/month
2 Gbps at €780/month
3 Gbps at €1160/month

C) Gold
1 Gbps at €800/month
2 Gbps at €1570/month
3 Gbps at €2340/month

There are no changes to the inbound traffic. Regardless of the type of bandwidth, you will be using our entire global network. There are no limitations. You will also all benefit from Anti-DDoS protection based on the entire network of inbound traffic.

On the outbound traffic, to provide the 3 types of bandwidth, we have built 3 sub-networks in each datacentre, within our main network.

This enables us to connect the links between OVH and the internet in a different and more direct/shorter manner, and thus to produce the bandwidth at different costs per Mbps. And in the event of failure of one of the sub-networks, the global network will takeover all of the traffic.

Burstable bandwidth.
Instead of using the entire OVH network with all of its optimisations, the outgoing traffic is redirected to 2 routers of the Burstable sub-network. The transit providers and the peering links are directly connected on these 2 routers. Each datacentre has a Burstable network connected to 2 or 3 PoPs.

SBG = Paris/Frankfurt transit + peering in Europe
RBX = Paris/Amsterdam transit + peering in Europe
GRA = Paris/London transit + peering in Europe
BHS = New York/Chicago/Montreal transit + peering in USA/Canada

Transit providers:
Cogent (we are negotiating with another 3 transit providers)

Premium bandwidth
Instead of using the entire OVH network with all of its optimisations, the outgoing traffic is redirected to 2 routers of the Premium sub-network. The transit providers and the peering links are directly connected on these 2 routers. Each datacentre has a Premium network connected to 2 or 3 PoPs:

SBG = Paris/Frankfurt transit + peering in Europe/USA/Canada
RBX = Paris/Amsterdam transit + peering in Europe/USA/Canada
GRA = Paris/London transit + peering in Europe/USA/Canada
BHS = New York/Chicago/Montreal transit + peering in Europe/USA/Canada

Transit providers:
Cogent, Tata, Level 3, Global Crossing, Seabone, NTT, Telia, Opentransit, T-System.

Gold bandwidth
The entire OVH network is used with all of its optimisations, regardless of the destination:
transit in Europe/USA/Canada (20 PoPs around the world)
peering in Europe/USA/Canada (20 PoPs around the world)

Transit providers: All (20 PoPs around the world)
Cogent, Tata, Level 3, Global Crossing, Seabone, NTT, Telia, Opentransit, T-System.

If anything is not clear, please let us know!

Regards,

Octave
