I mean wtf, seriously? After 3 months of all servers been "out of stock" you go back out of stock after only couple of weeks? What were people doing in this time, getting drunk?


Sorry about the rant but every single week something happens that gets me more and more frustrated with OVH.
The SP-64 is available to order again and will be delivered in the new year.

I just gave online.net a go, delivered within a few minutes, and now installing OS. I do like the idea of being billed pro-rata, means I can give them a whirl and see how they are. So far so good ..

It's not hard to make a stock system. Their system already knows if a server exists and is ready to deploy, there's no reason at all they can't put that onto the site as an exact figure. When a machine is ready its racked and keyed into the system so it knows it's there, so the number increases. What's so hard about that? It's no different to automatic stock levels in your local supermarket.

It just says OVH has poor suppliers / engineers / infrastructure if can't estimate such thing. But I can understand - for them constantly displaying 10 days (which is meaningless) will get them a lot of profit on interest, because even if disappointed client cancels the order money stays with them for a bit.
I'm guessing Availability means it'd be setup within 10 days. They've probably had a mad rush of orders because of the 3 months out of stock, they probably don't want to put 72 hours or whatever because they don't know if they can meet that.

Nothing wrong with them putting 10 days in my opinion.
