  • I got one, running some benchmarks, and very impressed. Very fast server.

    They also provide tiny OVZ for free for a number of locations. Just get another one too.

  • My free dedicated: CPU model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2130 CPU @ 3.40GHz Number of cores: 4 CPU frequency: 3400.000 MHz CPU cache size: 3072 KB Total amount of ram: 15945 MB Total amount of swap: 1021 MB I/O speed: 165MB/s

    My free OVZ128 CPU model: AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 6172 Number of cores: 1 CPU frequency: 2100.025 MHz CPU cache size: 512 KB Total amount of ram: 128 MB Total amount of swap: 128 MB I/O speed: 142MB/s

    For OVZ, one code for each cellphone#

    hmm. why does it say I have an i3 at 3.4Ghz, but actually runs at 1.6Ghz:

    processor   : 3
    vendor_id   : GenuineIntel
    cpu family  : 6
    model       : 42
    model name  : Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2130 CPU @ 3.40GHz
    stepping    : 7
    microcode   : 0x1a
    cpu MHz     : 1600.000
    cache size  : 3072 KB

    you guys are a lucky bunch!

  • They announce the new stock on twitter normally around 9am PST (from memory), yesterday it was all gone in about 4mins. So you gotta be quick.

  • @fly said: cpu MHz : 1600.000

    Its because (more than likely) they have it set to power saver mode or something. Its possible that it increases the power (therefore MHz) when required :P

    Of course this is all what "datashack" support told me when I asked why my CPU MHz was all 1000MHz, but it does seem reasonable (for Datashack though I ended up going into Bios and manually changing it from the power saver mode to rock out loud mode)

    @fly: I'd say just use it as is. If you think it really isn't that then you can always ask support to take a look into it. (Warning, OVH support takes a while to get a response). But most of their stuff is automated which makes it easier to edit all the other stuff.

    I really don't recommend this, and you'll save a lot of trouble just getting some IPs. http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=923115

    Thanks for the link. This is for testing, and give some friends a place to test some websites.

    Thanks @jarland

  • Got one :) I have no idea what I'm going to use it for, but I might as well mess around with it for a bit once it's set up.

  • So it appears these are the boxes we are getting: http://www.ovh.co.uk/dedicated_servers/superplan_mini.xml

    Relax brah

    Me too :( They release stock at approx. 12am EST right?

    Shame they won't be offering Kimsurfi from QC, I'm sure they will eventually but for right now if you want a cheap dedi you don't have too much choice besides the Mid/Central US (KC or STL)..

  • @nunim They announce the next stock round on their Twitter. I've seen a couple of different times.

  • For those of you who still wants one.

    "BHS "sold out!" today it took 19 seconds to run out of free dedicated servers. The afternoon batch will be announced at 12:00 EDT "

    (This is in two hours from posting right now).

    I was one of those people who got theirs in 19 seconds :) My server is already setup!

  • @nunim is EST or EDT? o_O I have no idea lol.

  • EST. Eastern Standard Time (to my understanding).

    Aka, in 24 minutes.

    OMG OMG 24 mins xD

    Yes, EST, but I am cofused because I am in CDT, and not CST, so... :S

    I am dumb xD

    Well, I didn't got nothing again :P

  • @HalfEatenPie said: This is my second one :P

    now i know i'll set another alarm tomorrow :P

    two questions:

    • i'm yet planning to keep the server after the test month, if they keep all the features in the manager with the beta (kvm, reboot and so on) for the standard price. on ovh forum i found something about a "renew server" form, but i don't see it anywhere, do you know if i'm missing something?

    • i haven't completely understood the new premium bandwidth plan that comes with beta server. "classic" sp plan mini has 100gbs capped to 10gbps after a 10tb traffic. bandwidth specs on the new plan mini doesn't refer to any traffic limit, but only to bare bandwidth: http://www.ovh.com/fr/serveurs_dedies/superplan_mini.xml

    it seems they won't have unmetered plan anymore (this one: http://www.ovh.co.uk/dedicated_servers/superplan_mini.xml?bp=unmetered). as all of the new ones will be unmetered

    finally there's this: http://www.ovh.com/fr/serveurs_dedies/hebergement_massif.xml

    as i got it the more server you have, the more you'll have to pay to keep the same bandwidth on every server

    quite perplexed

  • @HalfEatenPie said: This is my second one :P

    You can get more than one?

    Also is this the last month for beta?

    Finally got one! What's the link to the manager? I know I saw it somewhere on here but now I can't find it :( [Edit] Found the link, what would the login info be? IP address or servername?

    How long did setup take for most people?

    You'll get an e-mail, but usually its within the first few minutes (max 1 hour is what I saw)

  • Well, I see it's setup because I can SSH into it but I can't seem to figure out the correct details to login to the manager :o Tried IP and servername with the password they sent me.

  • @nunim said: I can't seem to figure out the correct details to login to the manager

    They'll send you a NIChandle via email. It may be in a formal email saying 'this is your nichandle', or in something stupid like "Notice of connection to your manager:"

    Then use the password you made during the signup process.

  • The username is the one they e-mailed it to you (if you created a new account).

    The password is the one you filled out when you signed up (if you registered a new account that is)

  • Ahh it's my customer ID as the username, was thinking it was using the password they sent me not the one I picked, finally got logged in and I can start messing with this great OVH panel everyone always talks about. Thanks guys.

    Seeing as how I've never used an i3, never looked at benchmarks on an i3, and generally have just overlooked it as a mediocre desktop processor... I was hoping it performed better than it does. It's not bad, but I don't see much use for it at the price range that's been speculated.

    Could make a mediocre KVM node, but meh...I think I'm done with mediocre.

  • @jarland said: have just overlooked it as a mediocre desktop processor...

    LOL? Then all the AMD quad stuff is mediocre too... And even some FX...

    edited August 2012

    @yomero I've pushed better out of amd quads that supposedly benchmark in a similar range, I'm not getting good results from this. Word it however you need to, I'm not a fancy writer over here, it's just not cutting it for me for even mild video encoding tasks. I never said it was bad, just mediocre.

    Could be another bottleneck on the system, but disk seems fine.

  • How long will it be free? half month or a month?

  • @wahyan said: How long will it be free?

    One month.

    Has anyone setup Proxmox on this yet? I don't get how to configure the network with their "failover IP's".

    Granted I've never setup Proxmox before, I just want to be able to create a Debian KVM & Windows KVM.

  • Forget using proxmox on it. You don't have the IPs.

  • Why would I need more then 2 IPs? Or do I need one for Proxmox also?

    Actually you can have 31 IP's with the free dedi, so far I ordered 6 and is all free!

  • Its 31 free IPs with the dedi?

    Well then that's something I didn't know.

    just install the proxmox image from the OVH manager.. when proxmox is installed you will get an email with your login info.. just type the ip in your browser and you should have the proxmox login page.

    yup!! seems to be new cause it was not there yesterday, previously you can only have 1 IP fail over.. now you can also choose the country IP from Us or Canada
