    Falzo, how do you mount the adicional disk inside your VM?

    just look via fdisk -l for the name of the disk, probably /dev/vdb if it is the first additional disk. then partition it and mkfs... after that just mount, maybe edit /etc/fstab to automount.

    so it should work like this:

    fdisk -l                            <- watch out which disk>
    fdisk /dev/vdb                      <- press n to create new partition>
    mkfs.ext4 /dev/vdb1
    tune2fs -l /dev/vdb1 |grep UUID     <- copy UUID for fstab>
    nano /etc/fstab                     <- paste in something like> 
       UUID=here-goes-your-UUID  /whatever  ext4  defaults,relatime  0  2
    mount /whatever

    VPS SSD on the public cloud share the same SLA of the public cloud.

    as mentioned above, at least the german AGB explicitly state otherwise.

    Geekoine said: As for the resources, they are not "full" dedicated on the VPS ssd nor on VPS Cloud (on the VPS Cloud you cannot exceed the 90% CPU usage for more than 6 consecutive hours)

    would you mind sharing, where this intel comes from? I've not seen any of that anywhere in their TOS, neither what should happen if you do exceed this usage...

    They didn't write anything about it. I just asked italian support before compiling stuff on my vps cloud (I was quite sure that vps cloud had no such limitation). I will share the ticket.

  • interesting enough... probably need to do a test on this. ;-)
    I normaly never ever need that cpu power that long, but think it would be nice to know, what they're gonna do about, if one hits those unnamed limits.

    they said about fair-share usage, but when you use CPU a lot, they trow you to quarantine. What about my experience with them, i've never been in quarantine...

  • @desperand said:

    ok, so as I probably never do hit those limits, I won't test it in first place... no need messing up with ovh for no reason ;-)
    better wait on some TE dudes, checking up on that and come here complaining afterwards, hrhr.

    OVH support team (Italy):

    Gentile Cliente,

    1) No, se il VPS utilizza il 90% di risorse CPU per più di 6 ore, potrebbe
    essere bloccato.

    2) Sì, è possibile anche usare i VPS SSD da Public Cloud, tuttavia le risorse
    prestate su public cloud sono best effort e non garantite.

    Cordiali Saluti

    thanks. can't tell, what to think about that... as far as I know of OVH, they would normally define such things in their terms and conditions. but they're also known to change their minds regularly as it fits their needs...

    whatever they do or do not, I wouldn't mind much about differences between those $2,99 product lines, there probably are no real guarantees on either of them ;-)

  • Answer from the OVH support, about the SSD VPS 1 disk space upgrade option:

    Dear Customer

    It is not possible to just add more storage you would need to upgrade the VPS to the next package.
    If you have any other issues or queries do not hesitate to contact us.

    Kind Regards
    OVH IE Support Team

    You can more disk space on cloud vps , https://www.ovh.com/us/cloud/instances/ , same price and resources but better upgrade/downgrade options .

  • @buderus199 said:

    Literally their support is correct.

    As me and others did explain multiple times what to do about, please just go up on this thread and read again...

    All I can say is I have multiple SSD Instances with additional disks with OVH, so I am not guessing on this ;-)

  • @Falzo said:

    Yes, I have read previous posts about the additional disk space. I have copied answer here just for clarification, if you go and buy "ordinary" (not cloud) SSD VPS 1. I would go for it, if I didn't read this thread before. :)

  • What's the issue with mounting external storage with fuse and sshfs?

    sudo apt-get install fuse sshfs

  • @buderus199 said:

    ok, sorry then - just misunderstood your posting. no offense meant ;-)

    @GM2015 said:

    that should always work, but needs you to have another server nearby and maybe is not as fast and could hurt network performance etc.

    Hello, so VPS SSD Public Cloud are best effort and VPS SSD (1,2,3) have dedicated resources?

    Thanks

  • @nfn said:
    Thanks

    VPS SSD on the public cloud are best effort; VPS SSD (1,2,3) don't have dedicated resources (fair share CPU; don't know about RAM)

  • Yeah, well any extra disk from ovh will be likely from a different server on their network possibly having the same distance issues.

    Falzo said: that should always work, but needs you to have another server nearby and maybe is not as fast and could hurt network performance etc.

  • can't tell how they implement that technically, I agree thats probably some kind of network attached storage, but it does for sure not run over that smalish '100MBit' network interface, as any other sshfs had to...

    makes a little big difference if you can achieve ~12MB/s (limited through network capacity) or something like that:

    # dd if=/dev/zero of=tempfile bs=64k count=64k

    4294967296 Bytes (4,3 GB) kopiert, 7,14169 s, 601 MB/s

  • Which CPU model is correct? Their Website says E5 v3 CPU. Webmin says: Intel Xeon E312xx (Sandy Bridge)

    It's the Sandy Bridge.

  • No issues here, I just grabbed another with the 30% discount code.

    01:31:47 up 95 days, 14:03, 1 user, load average: 0.00, 0.04, 0.04

    I use it for a VPN and a secondary name server.

    That discount is for UK only right? the vps30uk code? Is there one for US/CA @ BHS ?

    oh wait I see it now, vps30go - 30% off 6 months or 12 months prepaid

  • It's good for me. But storage it's so ..... You know :(

  • performance is good here, disk space is obviously lacking *and expensive to upgrade), and not having IPv6 yet sucks

  • Are there any current promos for these?

    Never got around to trying them.

    Sure, tell me the benchmark scripts you want me to run and I'll do it gadly :-)

    run unix bench, i want to know the score

  • rm_rm_ Member

    I/O seems hard-limited to 1000 IOPS on these, for comparison getting 5300 IOPS on Vultr. But most likely this won't affect real-life usage much.
