16+ TB Storage Server Needed Looking For Provider Suggestions

I'm looking for a dedicated server with 16+ TB of storage. The two providers I'm looking at right now are ReliableSite (I currently have a server with them) and OVH but I'm hoping there's a few more that I'm not aware of. My main issue with OVH's storage servers is that the CPUs are kind of slow compared to their regular dedicated servers.

Also, I'm looking for something either in the US or Canada. Budget is anywhere from 150-200/month. I would really appreciate any suggestions, thanks!

    CPU - Anything around or over 8K Passmark score.

    BW - 1 Gbps (10 TB or more/month)

    Location - Anywhere in the US or Canada is fine.

    Wow, that's pretty impressive. Why 31GB ram, do you mean it's running a VM rather than bare metal? Is it a regular offering? I'm not in the market for anything like that yet, but it's good to know about for future reference.

    Yes, All of our V-Dedicated run VM instead of Bare Metal. This is a regular offering.

    In EU, there is also the Hetzner SX61 at 69 euro/month with less cpu/ram (i7-3770/32gb), software raid, and a 69 euro setup fee but also 4x6tb disks ("enterprise-class" whatever that means). Hardware raid is 12.61 euro extra. The PST24 still has its attractions.

    In US/Canada, SpeedyKVM above is the best I know of if you need that much storage in a single box.

    I just had this chat with a support agent... Could you please clarify what the actual answer is? Your guy didn't sound very sure about anything really...

    Me: i just wanted to check what the actual hardware configuration for the v-dedi4 drives are

    Jimmy: 4 4TB hard drives in raid 5

    Me: okay so I was told that was 16TB usable
    does that mean it's not 16TB usable?
    4x4tb would only give me 12tb usable
    maybe 5x 4tb?

    Jimmy: no.
    It's a 1u chassis.

    Me: oh
    so the previous chat agent was misinformed then?

    Jimmy: I don't know what you were told.

    Me: "I was told that was 16TB usable"

    Jimmy: I see that.

    Me: "so the previous chat agent was misinformed then?"

    Jimmy: I don't know which part is incorrect. I will have to discuss it with the other agent.

    Me: I'm referring to the fact that I was told there is 16TB usable. Is that incorrect?

    Jimmy: I would assume so.

    According to the product page the box has 4x 6tb drives, so it sounds like a raid-5 setup with 3 data drives and 1 parity. In disk manufacturer jargon 1tb=1e12 bytes which is 0.91 TiB (what computer people call terabytes = 2**40 bytes = about 1.1e12 bytes). So that's 16.37 TiB of data space, of which the hypervisor stuff and distro images uses a chunk, leaving you with 16 or whatever.

    That adds up at least.

    That or 3 x 8TB in RAID5.

    Look at the home page https://speedykvm.com/ and click the v-dedi tab. That shows the hw setups for all the boxes. The $40, 7tb one is maybe the most interesting from my perspective, since it's an E3-1230 with 31GB/ram at a good enough price that it starts looking attractive to get two of them.

    Fwiw I got a promo email from Delimiter (who?) some months back with an offer for one of their 12 bay slot hosting servers for $999 a year, 2xL5630, etc. Somewhat limited on bandwidth for this type of thing though (40TB/mo). With 10TB drives spread across 3 years and 2 parity drives for RAID-6 you come in a tad over $2/TB/month, I think.

  • Another offer of possible interest: serverhub has $10/TB vps's as a regular product, and there's currently a 30% off recurring coupon that would bring it to $7/TB (http://hol16.serverhub.com/ , expires 12/31).

    Yea according to the dude on live chat it was 4x 4tb. Looks like he was the one who was wrong.

    Edit: Sorry wait I can't find the product page. Do you have a link?

    Look at the home page https://speedykvm.com/ and click the v-dedicated tab. That shows the hw setups for all the boxes.
