Cheap Dedicated Servers

Cheap Dedicated Servers

edited October 2012 in General

Hello,

I'm in the market for a dedicated server. Currently I have a Kimsufi 2G but the I/O speeds are terrible.

Now what I want is 2GB ram, an SSD, 100mbit (or preferably 1GBIT) connection, and roughly 1-5TB bandwidth.

Now if any providers could do a deal with a price comparable to the Kimsufi 2G then I'd be interested (or maybe a slightly higher price).

I've deliberately left out the CPU because I'm unsure which you would be able to provide.

Regards,

    yea... no, not going to happen.

  • Define what slightly higher might mean... I think with double the price you can get an atom with a SSD. M

  • Possible.. for 85-100$ :)

    It's possible you have a dodgy disk. Mine seems 'ok':

    [root@ks3002077 ~]# dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync
    16384+0 records in
    16384+0 records out

    Does it have to be dedicated? I might be able to do something on a KVM VPS if you don't need a lot of disk space.

  • Best luck would be with Datashack, won't find anything good with SSD

    How many of those do you have available ? :D

  • @prometeus 15TB? In/Out or just Out calculated?

  • @Alex_LiquidHost said: How many of those do you have available

    10 or 12 free I think. (we use the supermicro twin), so chassis are double powered, individual ipmi 2.0 and 3 2.5" disk slots for each atom so up to 3 x 1TB disks can be used with reasonable cost.

    at present both direction

  • Excellent, will mail you tommorow :) They can use 11mm 2,5" HDDs right? (SSDs are 9mm, 11mm is SAS size)

    I use regular 2.5" notebook class disks on those so yes, they should fit.

    @prometeus Is IPMI some kind of DRAC, so you can control remotely even at boot time, like into the BIOS etc

  • @rchurch Yes it's exactly that, I'm not a fan of iDRAC though but it does the job

  • @rchurch said: Is IPMI mean some kind of DRAC, so you an control remotely even at boot time. line into the BIOS etc

    yes, it use a dedicated ip address and let you remotely administer the server :-)

    "DigiCube has its own infrastructure in France where its installed EcoCubes , big boxes of 30m ³ each supplied via a UPS double conversion with high efficiency and powerful mechanical ventilation can completely renew the air in less than 10 seconds."

    Sounds like they have a fair amount of stuff:

    30 GB SSD + 1GB RAM, wondering what people could use it for, I'd rather have a Kimsufi which is 1TB hard drive for 2 bucks extra, at least I can use it as a backup :)

    @zhuanyi said: 30 GB SSD + 1GB RAM, wondering what people could use it for,

    Oh, lots of things. Hosting websites with databases (e.g. forums) is one. Coincidentally, I don't even use 10% of my OVH 1TB disk at the moment.

    What would concern me with this offer however, what kind of "30GB SSD" do they mean? There are no good/modern/fast 30 GB SSDs on the market, all are 60/64/120/128. And if you get some ancient SSD, it could perform worse than a hard drive.

  • Datashack is good and has prices that good. Supply can be a problem there though and unsure how support response currently is (Wholesale Internet does the support and is the network).

    Same extended network there is Joe's Datacenter. Good go to company with lower price point.

  • Datashack is a good company, but if you can afford to pay slightly more than that, Limestone Networks(regardless of all the bashing that's taken place lately) provides great service.

  • Seconded on datashack support. It's wonderful.

    @Dionysus Have a vps node sold to about half capacity with them. I wanna say its been 2 months, not a single issue. Best support I've had next to LiquidWeb. I don't recommend second guessing them at all. Leap, don't crawl.

  • Anyone know the best email to use to contact datashack? I tried sales but both times never got a response...

  • @mojeda said: I tried sales but both times never got a response...

    Have you tried fsales@? That's the one they seem to put in their WHT posts. Could also try PMing @datashack

    "We are in a prison drama. This is like The Shawshank Redemption, only with more tunneling through shit and no fucking redemption."
  • Dacentec seems good too. I have a VPS with crowncloud there. Happy with it, but not in production yet (bulk setup mode now and re-writing our installation process).

    Ask folks from crowncloud and @jarland (Catalyst Host) about Dacentec.

    WHT has posts on offers from the facility including a really nice sounds L5420/16GB server for $65 a month I think.

  • @prometeus Is the IPMI capability on the motherboards already built in and you enabled it, or did it require additional adapters?

    I am asking because a lot of dedi providers don't include IPMI as standard, and charge extra for it where as your "lowly" Atom D525 offering include as standard.

    Only Softlayer and a few other providers include it as standard, but you would think that a lot dedi providers would include it as standard to save them the hassle of fixing customer support issues.

    These are special "atoms" :) They come packaged in a supermicro case which handles the ipmi for them. And why would someone try to make customer's life easier as long as they can charge extra for fixing that reboot loop or crashed os ? M

  • @rchurch said: Is the IPMI capability on the motherboards already built in and you enabled it, or did it require additional adapters?

    I don't buy/rack any server that cannot be remotely controlled :-)

  • Datashack offer fairly good prices. Be sure to take a look at their special deals.
