    SSD RAM is the new swap. Traditionally, HDD swap sucked. Now with SSD, we no longer need actual RAM!

    :D

    Whenever I miss Dominic, I just find the most recent OVH thread and there he is, my sweetheart!

    It looks like some of them have ECC and others don't.

    Anyone know if all the E3's have SSD ram?

    No, E3 can run on non-ECC do of ECCis not mentioned, to be on the safe side, one should assume it’s not provided.

    The ones on the SYS site that use ECC will say it in the memory details. Old E3 v2's say "32GB DDR3 1333 MHz" but the E3 v3's say "32GB DDR3 ECC 1600 MHz" as an example.

    Missed this response before writing above. But yeah, same as Hetzner auction - will mention ECC, otherwise it's not.

    Prices for existing services won't be changed. The only way to avail the new prices would be to sign up for a new service and cancel the old one. This was confirmed by OVH reps in another thread.

    Bastards.

    Good thing SyS does not have setup fees presently.

    Doesn't help me when I got an overspec'd machine for the price of the cheaper unit. Don't know if I'd save much letting it back into the wild, but would get more if I spend a couple extra bucks.. eh, guess I'm keeping it as-is for now.

    Those prices have been up for a week at least now, so old news at best unfortunately. And from what I've heard, the setup fees might be making a return.

    I'm personally happy with the current configs and prices at SYS. Just new v4 CPU/2018 deals would be good enough for me.

    Edited out useless wall of text.

  • Don't get me wrong, lowering prices is a great thing. However, seeing the posts from the reps on this board, one could have gotten the impression that something bigger was happening.

    If this is it, I can only blame myself for reading too much into it. However, I can't imagine needing 3 weeks to roll out price changes.

    They are taking 3 weeks to roll out new 2018 offers. Most likely older OVH offers. They might even come with 500Mbps guaranteed as opposed to 250Mbps. There were some changes due to be announced this week, but that didn't happen from the looks of it.

    Wishful thinking expecting them to work on a weekend, but okay...

    I hope they release them soon because I need a new SYS server but now I don't want to buy when I know they're just going to release lower priced ones =/ first world problems

    I wonder if they have a rescue mode for those? Would love to boot into rescue and install another OS besides the ones they give for the ARM ones

    Similar issue. I have a server with another company, along with a SYS server. I am trying to figure out which, in the end, is the better value. If SYS rolls out new prices and new features, they would likely edge out the other company but, given that the other server would expire in the next 3 days, I have some thinking to do.

  • are the arm cpu's fast enough to run rtorrent and seed linux isos over long long time?

  • rm_rm_ Member

    The 6TB one should have been 13 EUR, not 14. At 14 it's not the best deal per TB in the lineup.

    Fuck it, went ahead and ordered the $5.99 one...it was to cheap not to try out/play around with for a month :)

    Waiting to see if I have to go through validation (I have an IE account but I setup a new US account for this order and future orders since I'm in the US). The order shows everything Complete except for the Setup Fees which shows "Error"

    -edit-

    Server was delivered, didn't have to go through validation.

  • rm_rm_ Member

    The details pages say both

    IPv6 Not available

    and

    IPv6 /64

    So anyone who ordered could you check which is it, do you get IPv6 or not?

    I have IPv6 listed on my IP tab, looks like just 1 with a rdns and add description option

    that's at least a deal , cold storage for cheap and more than 100Mbps. did the same calculation as @rm_ and went for the 4TB one. though with their .de branch it's 9,24€ without VAT because they rounded up on the prices with VAT :(

    the ordering price was 8,99 € (through the .ie link) but on the payment it was automatically corrected to the german price ... however, still cheap storage to just dump old backups on.

    will post more infos on disk and stuff as soon as I got it installed...

    same here, obviously just a single IPv6 (ends in ::1 so probably still a /64 per server). but no chance to add rdns for multiple ones, like with their normal dedis.
