OVH server expires soon, need a new main server for foreseeable future

Looking for something comparable to the SYS-LE-2 sale:
Xeon E5-2650v2 8c/16t
128gb ram
2 x 1920 GB NVME
250 Mbps unmetered

In ranking of spec importance: storage/network, ram, CPU

My OVH server expires soon so this will preferably be my main server that I use for all my projects and as a media/streaming server.

Budget is around $70 or under a month. If these specs are not possible I am also willing to get a less powerful server then buy and send hardware to be installed as if there's no problems then I'll be renting this server for the next few years.

Kind of wish I jumped on the 3700X deal posted by MrRadic but maybe he can help me work something out haha...

    That OVH is a limited special that's like $80 or something.

    It was even better, $57.99/mo
    It's such a fascinating machine. You won't find anything like it at its price. But then it has obvious downsides too.

  • My current OVH machine is an ADVANCE-2 machine that I signed a 2 year contract with for around 77 dollars a month. The SYS-LE-2 machine was indeed an abnormality and was going for 50 euros iirc

    It is not that impossible ...I think It can be matched more or less, the 4TB nvme makes a bit hard. Maybe @HostSlick can do it? Or you can ask for a custom from andy10gbps or walkerservers, make it clear that you are willing to go for a long term commitment, it may reduce the price.

    If not, just go with hetzner, you were paying 77$ (~74euro) /month for that? With hetzner you get something close for 47€ with 3x 1 TB, 64gb of ram, and you can upgrade storage and ram, tweak things as you wish, it will still be cheaper or same price.

    see 1743213

    or tweak their cheapest AX, too bad they had and 8700 EX with 128GB of ram by default, but that default config is no longer available, only via auction..

  • I think the thing that makes it hard is that I live in the US and would not want to deal with the transatlantic latency

    Thanks for the mention but our price is arround x2 the budget or higher. And lowering prices with the demand we have is not much of interest

    Hetzner would be best choice, yes. Or stay at OVH for EU. Otherwise might look in US but still questionable.

    Have you seen the offers from pebblehost here? @dann00 might be able to accommodate you. Granted they are not as big as OVH or Hetzner, but their services and support seem to be extremely good.

    Then why don't you simply call them like everyone else does!?
    (one time) Setup fee + XX monthly

  • Thanks for all the offers but maybe I should've mentioned that I'm looking for something in North America which is why I'm having trouble. Unfortunately American capitalism is no match for German ingenuity.

    US has cheap servers too!

    Maybe @DataIdeas-Josh ?

    At least, I think you can find the server you want for that price but you may have to buy the drives and send them, or pay them to buy the drives for you.

    P.S if you're buying the drives, you might as well want to go the extra mile and pay ~300 more and get a server and find a colocation, you can probably find sth for under 50$

    Typically it is used NCR and MCR to talk about offers. But thank you for the feedback and I'll work on it

    Good day,
    Is this a plex box or something?
    Where at in the US you prefer?
    We are great for colocation. I have seen people use our Micro colo option with using a Dell micro pc (something like https://www.ebay.com/itm/234135800334) and attaching some external hdds.
    Shoot us a PM or come join us on our Discord and we can help you design something or come up with a custom VPS/Dedicated package.

    For colocation, where is your data center's physical address? Or roughly the area?
    Do you need customers to ship the computer to you? or go phyically to your data center to move in?

    Good day,
    When you sign up for the service we will send you the shipping address in your welcome email.
    We are located just North of Houston, Texas
    https://dataideas.com/trgdatacenters.html

    You can ship us (or drop ship even) the devices and we will rack it up.
    You are welcome to drop off the device as well if local.
    If your device need configuration either we can do that for a small fee or can hook up our KVM Spider (remote crash cart) for you to access your machine.

    If I order a 2-u colo, am I allowed to check my rack space in person? Or I just need some remote hands all of the time? Thanks.

    Good day,
    We offer free basic remote hands and if something beyond that is needed I'll take care of it. We'll work with you on this. (And considering the price of fuel. If I'm already at the DC. No point in burning the fuel if not needed :) )
    If you want to come in. It will need to be scheduled.

    Any chance of a hint, please, about what sorts of tasks are "basic," and, therefore, free. :)

    @DataIdeas-Josh said: If I'm already at the DC.

    How often are you there? :)

    Best wishes and kindest regards,

    Generally "basic" remote hands includes stuff like button presses, drive hotswap, etc. For most places that include "basic" hands, as soon as the server needed to be opened, you'd be billed (RAM swap, CPU repaste, etc)

    @LiliLabs hit the nail on the head.

    @Not_Oles - As far as how often I'm there. At a minimum its once a month for re-provisioning of the SD cards for the RPiServers. Just all depends on what's needed.
