Dedicated Server Wanted
I am looking for a dedicated server. Prefer in UK or Europe at a push (latency is key)
I want to learn proxmox and a dedicated server seems a good start.
Budget : £25 a month.
Currently looking at OVHclouds :
CPU : Intel Core i7-4790K - 4c/8t - 4 GHz/4.4 GHz
Memory : 32 GB DDR3
Storage : 2 x 960 GB SSD SATA Soft RAID
Public bandwidth : 100 Mbps
Anyone have any recommendations?
I will be running a couple of game servers and a few virtual machines for practice hence my price range.
Open to all, Hit me with options!
Welcome to LET.
OVH's SoYouStart range is 250Mbps if you need more bandwidth. I see one for $26GBP including VAT.
PebbleHost has some servers in UK for $20USD: https://lowendtalk.com/discussion/184869/pebblehost-dedicated-servers-from-19-99-4-8-trustpilot-2-900-reviews-instant-setup
Pebble host is great and ovh is alright too
Thanks! I will look,
Is there much difference in a Intel Xeon D1520 - 4c/8t - 2.2 GHz/2.6 GHz compared to a Intel Core i7-4790K - 4c/8t - 4 GHz/4.4 GHz ?
I can see the frequency is of course greater but in real world environment does that matter? The RAM is ddr4 in the So you start range also!
Pebbly host looks great but 8gb RAM is a small amount
They'll be a bit above your budget but keep an eye on the deal threads by @MrRadic at reliable site
The 4790k quite a bit faster than the D1520 despite having an older architecture. It has a higher TDP and base frequency. Taking a peek at GeekBench 5 browser, the 4790k is about 60% faster single-core.
I would normally use passmark to make quick comparisons but there doesn't seem to be enough data on the D-1520. It's slower, but you're getting a network speed increase so just pick what is important for you.
As for PebbleHost, 8GB of RAM may not be enough, but unlike OVH you don't have to pay a setup-fee. For 2/3rds the price of these OVH servers you have a decent playground to try Proxmox and your game servers to identify any inadequacies.
Thanks for the mention! We aren't UK based.
CPU: i5 6500
RAM: 32GB DDR4

Thank you kindly for the offer, I have taken a server with OVHcloud for now. This is a very compelling offer but I have already purchased :-)
