    They are well know, it is OVH brand. They are what they are, many use them as cheap backup boxes, a ton of spam, torrents etc. Just search for reviews.

    The Celeron/Atom server is not a gurantee to be an atom/celeron

    I got a Pentium D and have had a P4 in the past aswell as a AMD Sempron

    kimsufi / OVH have a very comprehensive control panel. You can do nearly everything with it without ever having to contact support. IF you have to contact support, things might take some time. I personally cannot complain (every issue that I ever had was addressed within 2-4 hours), but I read some reviews that talk about days to solve a problem. However, their network has improved a lot during the last months and if you know how to handle a dedicated server without any help from your provider, then you cannot go wrong with them. Just do not expect a Rolls-Royce for the price of a Skoda.

    Got divided by zero. Three times. Feel better ever since...

  • looks like a kimsufi reseller. Although if you want the cheaper price you should probably buy directly from them (assuming your country is allowed/you're verified).

    Nothing crazy, they have a profitable expanding business with these prices. They have a great DC technology, with extreme density and automation of everything. That's how those prices are possible. http://lafibre.info/datacenter/data-center-ovh-roubaix-2/msg33642/#msg33642 www.youtube.com/watch?v=xB9mwicJU7I <- My Kimsufi 2G is somewhere in this DC.

    As mentioned in another thread, I am using this server from kimsufi (isgenug.de is the germany kimsufi brand):

    Intel Q6600 4x 2.40 GHz (8 MB Cache) 4 GB RAM, 1 TB HD, 10 TB on 100 mbit http://www.isgenug.de/hot_deals/index.xml

    for EUR 26.99 per month. Great bargain! :)

    Damn, Why can't I order that one?

    I have no idea whether you HAVE to be German to order from isgenug.de. Have you tried it?

    I tried, when I login with my dutch account it simply resets to the dutch OVH.

    Try proceeding from here: https://www.ovh.de/bestellung/kimsufi.cgi?hard=922sk1 and log in only as soon as it asks you to, not before.

    they are a budget provider, and known to have cheap prices, i can tell you there are alot of abusers in their network.

  • Kimsufi and OVH are one and the same. The Kimsufi boxes are entry level and not not have the Raided disks for the 1Gbit connectivity that OVH's production boxes have. They do however allow connection through to the OVH nas storage, which makes them useful as webheads.

    UnixGuru, because life too short for slow hosting!
  • I need about HDD write/read speed and "Guaranteed bandwidth: 100 Mbps"

  • @Randy doesnt make an impact to be fair, most seedbox hosts are just relaying Kimsufi's with rTorrent MultiUser enabled. I've more than once thought of setting that up, and offering it dirt cheap, cap bandwidth abuse etc.... Seems almost too perfect; apart from the legalities of my server being used to download warez (lul).

    And @sieuvocmaytinh (jesus, long name!), Your HDD speed is a simple ONE disk, so, as fast as a budget disk will go... and You will never get guaranteed bandwidth; but they're sure as hell try.

  • Might also want to check out Hetzner if you're after budget servers.

    Thanked by 1[Deleted User]
  • @asadhaider for EU, budget, OVH is my first-call. I've heard Hetzner has weird Networks...

  • rm_rm_ Member

    I need about HDD write/read speed

    Read: Timing buffered disk reads: 564 MB in 3.00 seconds = 187.73 MB/sec

    Write: 134217728 bytes (134 MB) copied, 1.31576 s, 102 MB/s

    I got a Seagate ST1000DM003 so I dunno just go and find some HDD benchmarks etc. But there is no guarantee you'll get this particular model of a HDD too.

  • Digicube is even cheaper than Kimsufi http://digicube.fr ;)

    I don't know French to well but the offer seems to only have 1GB ram and 80GB hdd not as good as kimisufi specs by a mile!

    Mémoire : 1 Go
    1 disque 80 Go

    @Jeffrey I remember them having a huge setup fee, something like 50 EUR, has that been removed? Also they are only cheaper if paid annually; and the disks are very small, far from Kimsufi's 1TB; oh, and less RAM. But an SSD Atom certainly looks interesting. Basically one can cancel two average LEBs and get an SSD-based dedi.

  • @rm_ said: Try proceeding from here: https://www.ovh.de/bestellung/kimsufi.cgi?hard=922sk1

    Doesn't work, just tried...

    I envy you guys living in Germany, Hetzner is there and Kimsufi has such a great deal just for you guys

    It is not the same offer. Neither .ie, nor .co.uk.

  • kimsufi are an ovh brand, but with kimsufi these are the downgrades:

    no raid support. 32 ips max per server. longer wait on support tickets. i also dont believe you get any phone support either, same network, but i think its a different part of the building.

  • What support would you require @private_html their control panel allows you to do pretty much everything except kicking the server in the teeth. You can re-install using kickstarters, launch OVH Recovery with a web interface; uhm, it's pretty much endless.

  • luke_hluke_h Member

    Kimsufi are okay, if you know what you are 100% doing and you need no support, they will never ever reply to support tickets, even if they do it will be about a month waiting time :P

  • The glory of Kimsufi is: Nearly instant setup, cheap as hell prices, control panel to reinstall OS.

    What Sucks: Lack of support, network

    I cannot confirm what you are saying about support and network. Every issue I had with them (german branch) was handled <12h on business days. Resolution time, not first reaction. Their network only sucks in countries that they do not peer with or only at a low level. They are frank and open about this. Take a look at their network map to see whether your targeted countries are well covered and you are fine. They are not "premium" of course, but they also do not charge you "premium"!

    The code is for a special from http://www.isgenug.de/hot_deals/index.xml Specs are on that page and it says 4GB of RAM. Pretty clever, taking a code for the offer and then inserting it into another branch's ordering URL. Not sure if this will really work and if you will get a server delivered. For worldwide you can try https://www.ovh.com/fr/commande/kimsufi.cgi?hard=922sk1 The price is 23 EUR/mo without VAT. If you decide to order, promise to post here how it goes :)

  • @rm_: doesn't work for international even with that link.

    I thought it was this one: http://www.kimsufi.co.uk/special_edition/index.xml

    Anyways I do hope its a quad core.

    It works. I tried it earlier and got my quad core with 4GB RAM. I can provide proof if needed.

    How long ago? I ordered by changing that extension to .ie and I paid for one but I haven't received anything yet.

    Recieved Order ID via e-mail at 17:07 (after payment) and recieved "Installation of your dedicated server" e-mail at 17:27.

  • Dang, its been a few hours for me so far after payment. I got the payment e-mail 2 hours after I purchased it.

  • ReeRee Member

    Loaded the first item on the .ie special page, replaced the code with 922sk1 in the address bar, ordered, paid (23 euro), and received the server about 10 minutes later.

    CPU and RAM are as advertised (Q6600 w/ 4GB) HD is ST31000528AS with 370 days of power on time with 45 power cycles. [root@ks###### ~]# dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync; rm test 16384+0 records in 16384+0 records out 1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 9.9315 s, 108 MB/s
