Datashack is getting some stock back on cheap dedicated servers

Datashack is getting some stock back on cheap dedicated servers

Just realized data shack is getting some stock on some of the low end dedis:

https://www.datashack.net/dedicated/

For example,

Dual Opteron 2216 2.4Ghz - 2 Processors 4 Cores / 4 Threads 4GB DDR2 ECC 146GB SSD • 10TB Monthly Transfer • Linux/Windows* OS • 5 usable IPv4 Address • /64 IPv6 Address Block** • Remote Reboot Access $35.00/month FREE Setup

Which I guess is good enough for a general-purpose server. You can get another SSD to set up a RAID 1 for an extra 5 bucks.

What do you guys think?

    Doesn't sound too bad for 40 bucks. How fast are those servers? Would DirectAdmin with a few websites be fine with that processor?

    @HalfEatenPie Could you post or message me a test IP if possible? I asked their support for one.

    It'll run as long as you don't have any hardcore database sites. They charge for DirectAdmin now, btw.

    Just when I was going to get a server with them.

    Guess they just lost my money.

    Went to look and they only charge for setup.

    No offence but when you charge $33 for 1080mb I think you can still order and make a decent profit.

    It seems you are correct. Tonight I was told this in a ticket:

    "Starting on June 1st, we started charging $5 for DirectAdmin."

    I just figured he meant per month.

    It's easy to make a profit on $33/month when the entire system only costs about $250 to build.

  • yomeroyomero Member

    I wonder what kind of SSD? Or in reality is a 15k normal HDD?

  • @yomero said: Or in reality is a 15k normal HDD?

    Well it says SSD on the site index, but when ordering it says SAS. Gotta love that marketing they do. (Maybe they will bring back the sex core)

    I believe they're SAS drives, not SSD.

  • Mmm are those 5 dollars for DirectAdmin only once or monthly?

    Cuz it shows you 0.00 and set up fee 5.00

    I dont understand that part :S

    I asked them to clarify it. It's a one time setup fee for any license issued after the 1st of June.

  • @subigo

    ok setup but the cost of the license?

    Cuz i understand that setup and cost of a license is different :P

  • Perfect, one of those, with 2xSAS in RAID 0 and /26 subnet would make a perfect VPS node.

    /and it was a joke/

    @AsadHaider The dead pool is the source of our drama, we need drama.

    Dear children, your parents won't even notice the money missing.

    Bought one though. Not saying we're getting into VPS soon, but if we were, I'd beat the heck out of that little CPU and if I found the numbers acceptable, I'd add a few on it just to generate a little traffic (more like a /28). Otherwise, hello new PowerDNS node.

  • They charge for DA now because people ordered it because it was free, then asked for it to be uninstalled.

    Some staff do not charge you for it.

    Since it has 5 IPs included in the $35 price, I'd consider getting one, then selling 4 512MB KVM VPSes on it for $7/mo each (preferrably to trusted people), thus nicely offsetting the cost of the whole server. An $7 KVM on a server where there's only 4 other users, that's quite attractive imho.

    rm_ that's not including the price of the extra hard drive for Raid. So up it a bit more and yeah that doesn't sound bad at all.

  • @liam said: Seriously? Bet you have a nice bill now.

    Nope, I ordered most of them when they were free for every single IP (even if no VPS was on it).

    And I was very persuasive at getting them to waive the invoice for new ones (since they are essentially not installing anything).

  • earlearl Member

    Could these be blade servers? seems like about the right specs..

    hp blade server

  • PatsPats Member

    yes should be, as in WHT datashack had mentioned 'Server Grade, HP Hardware'

  • @HalfEatenPie said: Yup @Satellite and Myself (plus another person on IRC I don't qutie remember who) already bought one each yesterday.

    Ordered mine yesterday as well, I heard mixed reviews about datashack but what the heck, it is just 10 more bucks than BlueVM's semi-dedi and you get a nice SSD RAID yourself :)

    When I looked just now, it's been updated to SAS.

    Too bad they don't offer RAID, even software RAID.

    @eastonch said: with a shit processor

    Two Dual-core Opterons are anything but a "shit processor". However, they indeed are going to process your shit in a fairly speedy manner.

    @Damian said: Too bad they don't offer RAID, even software RAID.

    Nothing stops you from creating a software RAID yourself. More interesting question is whether or not they offer KVM-over-IP, so that you could install an OS onto the server yourself, remotely (and in the process, create that s/w RAID).
