Another pretty decent dedi server deal?

Dacentec? Anyone used them before?

http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1176304&highlight=dacentec

Obviously more expensive than Datashack but you get the server after 12 months. The only downside is they do not have hardware RAID and only 1 IP comes free.

Some pretty good comments here:

I talked to them via email last night, no discount but the support is pretty friendly and professional.

Anyone else has experience with them?

    I don't get it why 2nd server is more expensive. It looks worse in the specs (same disk but less RAM).

  • JarJar Member

    Address isn't a house, that's a good start.

  • Nahh Dacentec is really good. They own their own DC, I know @Satellite has one along with a few others in IRC.

  • TazTaz Disabled

    While those lto deal looks nice, those servers are older than my baseball bat. For leasing, they might be ok but if you want to get your own server, better get it from ebay.

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

  • @rm_ the Dell is more expensive because it comes with onboard IPMI and hardware RAID.

    @Jeffrey non-ECC RAM? and no "own it" part, and this is really the killer with Dacentec, basically a 8-core 16GB ECC RAM server for only $650 with 12 month free colo included. This deal is good, but I doubt a bit if they are REALLY going to fullfill the "own it" part for everyone without any issue.

    @Satellite said: the Dell is more expensive because it comes with onboard IPMI and hardware RAID.

    Yup. Unlike the smaller one, (which you have to request for IP KVM) the IPMI makes working with the server much easier.

    I don't know why you are self-advertising here on a thread that is completely irrelevant to you, very unprofessional at best.

    Title: Another pretty decent dedi server deal?

    :P We're talking about decent dedicated server deals, and while dacentec is definitely in the spot lights for this, I find Jeffrey's slight self-promo acceptable here (I mean it wasn't totally out of the blue unlike some people in the past).

    Anyways, back on topic,

    The real part I like about them is the rent to own system.

    This isn't WHT, personally I welcome self promotion. I don't even mean for my benefit, I just think it's an outdated rule that people shouldn't self promote in conversation. As long as it's not a bot or an account that exists purely to inject self promotion into discussion.

  • Hey guys! @jarland has his VPS company in his signature! He's self promoting by posting on this forum! Let's get him!

    Honestly, its bound to happen and as long as that person is an active member of the community I'm ok with it.

  • +1 what @Jarland and @HalfEatenPie said.

    I'd much rather buy from a LET user than a WHT-only drone. Now, if the self-promotion was "hell with those guys, buy my servers instead!" or other attack promotion, I'd have a problem with that.

  • Another point that was just discussed on IRC is that I didn't even know @jeffrey did dedicated servers. Wouldn't have known too, except that it was posted in here.

    Summer hosts unite! I've already started migrating people to VolumeDrive and telling them I just had to reboot. I can fit 250 people on 4gb ram right?

    Before this is held against me later, laugh at the joke ;)

  • @jarland said: can fit 250 people on 4gb ram right?

    Dude! I heard with this old virtualization tech known as Xen (sounds cool right?) you can now fit over 500 people on 2 GB of ram!

    Calling this a RAID "controller" is stretching the imagination a bit.. let me know if you get it to work.

    @Damian Yeah that likely won't be the end configuration, surely I can pop a new controller in here.

    The forum's image tag is broken.

    Also, back on subject, dedicated servers are the new virtual private servers :P (that made no sense whatsoever)

    FDC doesn't allow people who buy a rack to add a UPS or any custom configurations to a network within the rack? Source? ;)

    Anyway, I have exchanged a couple of emails and around 3-4 chats with William @ dacentec.. They seem pretty decent and reasonable.. and I heard that the support is really helpfull and nice, which is a good thing, especially for unmanaged budget provider.

    yep.. sw raid10 only took around 100-110MB/s in plain partition (/vz). when i create KVM/Xen in LVM partition the dd test dropped to 10-20MB/s LOL

    Yeah it's kinda low but considering my Dedi @ Datashack is only 4gb I figure it was acceptable..

    @Alex_LiquidHost it uses Fully buffered Ecc ram which is kinda expensive.. Tried a regular ddr2 ram and it wont fit in the slot
