SYS Black Friday offers

It would appear that SYS launched their Black Friday offers.

Available here: https://www.soyoustart.com/ie/essential-servers/
I'm not a big fan of OVH, but I must admit that lately, they know how to surprise us.
Beware, 20€ extra set-up fees, and OVH never displays it before the payment tunnel...

    edit: or well now I see these were new ranges introduced recently and not part of the BF offer

    So fast :P

  • And it’s a swerve from me, just not enough storage.

  • Those offers are valid for the entire contract duration, and not just for the first month, right?

    Entire contract, yes.

    Awesome, hoping they've got enough SYS-LE-4 in stock... I've ordered 70 so far and am hoping to snag a bunch more from Canada.

    I've ordered all "SYS-5-SSD-64" that they had in CA too (31 in stock) plus waiting on delivery for 40 odd still on those. We'll be swapping a lot of E5-1650/1630v3's with these systems.

    If they have these in stock, Ideally I'd like to get another ~50-60 ordered ontop but I'm somewhat doubting how much stock they've got - so far 47 systems have been delivered from these LE-4's

    Lol. That is true. But raid0 helps a little. There is also an option to order 1TB SSD for like 7 Euros but I am not sure if its possible on 4x HDD servers.

    I think the age of the drives was being referred to there, not their performance directly.

    The server I have had for a little over two years has drives ~5.5 years old going by the SMART “power-on hours” counter.

    And with old drives I would be even more wary of RAID0 than usual. Lose one drive, lose the whole array. Fine if it is something like a seed-box where the content can be quickly re-obtained after a catastrophic error but I'd not trust it for anything more important.

    I'm hopeful we'll see a restock before the end of the sale as it appears that they've now run out of stock as well on the SYS-LE-4. Received 63 servers so far.

  • which one is better?

    E5-1620 v2
    64GB eec ram
    2x480Gb SSD
    500Mbps
    $40

    vs

    i7-7700K
    64GB DDR4 2133MHz
    2x450GB NVME
    500 Mbps
    $46

    :/

  • Why go with them if Hetzner offers much better value for the money?

    On USA not yet

  • @vitobotta said:

    Value for money is not the be-all and end-all. Some folks can't afford the cheapest Hetzner auction server, so this OVH/Kimsufi are great cheap alternatives.

  • In for a SYS-LE-4 if one person didn’t buy them all lol. Seriously no limits?

  • @justchil said: In for a SYS-LE-4 if one person didn’t buy them all lol. Seriously no limits?

    It's ok, you can just buy one from @dann00.
