    I like it. What about 1tb out? If I actually manage to fill the drives with data, and then need all of it for an emergency restoration, can I pay for the transfer?

    Where can I sign up?

    The limit is more theoretical anyway, it likely will be 10TB IN/OUT shared I'm still calculating the price, but it will be around that then :)

    Should note: The HDDs are "24hour HDDS" (for video recorders) but not "real" enterprise HDDs, we never had any issues with them though.

  • Can you please share the brand/model of the 3TB enterprise drives? Our suppliers only have up to 2TB enterprise HDDs :(

    Consumer/NAS: Seagate SV35 ST3000VX000 - 3TB 7200rpm 64MB 3.5zoll SATA600 138EUR

    Enterprise: Likely these will be used however: Western Digital Green WD30EZRX - 3TB 5400rpm 64MB 3.5zoll SATA600 120EUR

    Or, maybe a cheaper edition with 4x2TB:

    Hardware specs are similar to HP microserver. It is a good small backup/NAS server and very cheap; it also supports virtualization and has ecc memory (a must have for a backup server). Colocation could be a better value for this low-end server, do you have a special price for this? Edis standard colocation rate is geared towards high-specs, high-power servers.

  • flyfly Member

    i've had pretty bad experience with the wd green's. have you looked into the samsung f3?

    the first seagate drive looks pretty good

  • I would be interested

  • @pcan said: Hardware specs are similar to HP microserver

    Because it is one :)

    @pcan said: Colocation could be a better value for this low-end server, do you have a special price for this?

    No, they use quite much power and space, so default price. The high price is also intended, we do not like to sell colocation at all.

  • Would this come with IPMI or KVMoIP?

    Daniel.

  • @MrLawoodle said: Would this come with IPMI or KVMoIP?

    No/No. These servers have no internal iLO as usual HPs do.

    No possibility to have temp KVMoIP for the custom install?

    This is possible of course.

  • This looks very affordable, but a slight overkill for my needs. I'm sure some people would love to get their hands on these specs though.

    I think 3x3tb with minimum of 2tb outbound bw @ 70EUR would be the perfect deal. Comes in just under $90.00 USD and has just the right amount of space. Though I suppose for those who want to setup raid5 or better the extra drive could come in handy. I would probably just stripe (raid0) and use it to store back-ups and 9TB would be plenty. As I said though, depends on your intended use. Drives seem a little slow to do a vps server of anykind with decent io, but perfect for storage and back-ups.

    My 2 Cents.

    P.S. If you think you will offer something around the 70EUR price point with 9tb send me a pm, i may snag one if I can fit it in my budget.

    Edit: I re-read and saw it is gbit, my bad :)

    yea, no, that is totally unrealistic...

  • It could be realistic, with a 200EUR setup fee :)

  • Definately interested.

    @William said: yea, no, that is totally unrealistic...

    I figured that was saving you about 120EUR+/- on a drive and would be worth a savings of 10 EUR on the cost of the server monthly. Are you saying regardless of the one less drive you would still charge the same? What is realistic?

    P.S. I am not concerned with having a SSD drive either for boot, the 3 3tb drives would be plenty.

  • @William Well if you do decide to put it together and think you can hit around that price point let me know! Thanks.

  • With the VAT isn't that going to be almost 100 euro?

    I just ask because by then you're almost competing with something like this offer from Hetzner: http://www.hetzner.de/en/hosting/produkte_rootserver/xs13

    Ransom IT | ɹǝpun uʍop sdʌ | vps down under | KVM in Sydney and Adelaide | OpenVZ in Adelaide
  • Yes, but we don't compete with Hetzner - entirely different business structure.

  • The end product is what many (maybe not us LET'ers) look at though. :-)

    BTW if these are the HP boxes pointing out they have ECC RAM would be a benefit as that makes a difference for storage servers IMO.
