Dedi server with 128GB RAM for under ~$180/month

I am curious if there are better alternatives to the OVH SP-128 server https://www.ovh.com/us/dedicated-servers/enterprise/163sp4.xml

I am using it for an important production service and I am curious if I can get something better from a different provider.

  • More Ghz is better than more cores.
  • SSD or NVMe in raid.
  • 128GB of RAM or more.
  • And obviously uptime is important.

Is anyone aware of anything similar or OVH is the best I can get for my budget?

    I have one budget server somewhat close to what your looking for:
    Dual Intel Xeon L5520
    » CPU: Dual Intel Xeon L5520 2.26Ghz $0.00 USD
    » Memory: 72 GB DDR2 ECC $0.00 USD
    » Primary SSD: 1TB HD 7200 RPM $0.00 USD
    » Secondary SSD/HD: None $0.00 USD
    » Port Speed / Bandwidth: 100M/Unmetered $0.00 USD

    https://my.oplink.net/cart.php?a=add&pid=113
    Normally 99/mo but with coupon ded50 takes off 50% off.. Total = $49.50. Switch to 120G SSD if you like in the options or upgrade to a bigger ssd at checkout.

  • So far Hetzner looks great, even with the setup cost. I will consider it for the switch.

    @saf31 The online.net ENT 2016 is interesting, but I worry about the E5 2620 v4 CPU. I think E5-1650 v3 would be faster for my use case. Few requests in parallel but they have to analyze a lot of data.

  • Using online.net would be career suicide. Hetz has a better network and OVH is even better.

    If you order the SP-128 w/ NVMes you'll get the v4 version of the E5-1650 with DDR4 2400 memory, which is slightly better.

    Network port upgrade to 1gbit @49€ is one time fee as stated. And usually you can use bit more than 5tb on the higher plans like this. Best is to write the support if you have special requirements. :)

    Traffic is not as cheap as OVH and Hetzner as they do also peer with german Telekom aka dtag peering which is up to 5× more expensive than cogent shit peering for example.
    Support is also very responsive ccompared to ovh if you have technical questions.

    Hetzner does not peer with dtag unless youvpay extra, also they only offer 99% uptime guarantee.

    I'm no professional on colo, but from my readings it's not that expensive depending on the location and facility. Mid / east coast datacenters usually give cheaper deals, at least cheaper than $100/mon. For example, dacentec 1U2A colo is $40/mon.

    On the long run, it's going to save a lot.

  • msg7086 said: I'm no professional on colo,

    You're exactly right on this. If you lease/rent, hardware replacements are free. If you colo, you have to ship your replacement parts or buy them from the DC. You didn't consider this.

    For example, dacentec 1U2A colo is $40/mon.
    On the long run, it's going to save a lot.

    Nobody seriously would consider a budget colocation facility for a quality network. When people are bringing up established providers with decent hardware and you suggest something budget, nobody will take you seriously

    Given that OP doesn't care where the server is located, that suggests the application is more about computation (data analysis etc) than fast networks. I can get into that.

    I was talking about colo, not RTO. May I also remind you the word For example in my post? I never say you should try dacentec I'm saying you should consider colo.

  • I've been thinking about colo for my own stuff for years, but it's just darn hard to beat budget dedis unless you need something specialized. The server OP wants is fairly run of the mill these days.

    128 GB is still fairly high end (or just rare) spec, as well as nvme. With an owned box colo'd OP can pick whatever needed instead of compromising options. For example, cociu's offer comes with 2xE5-2430 which has a base freq of 2.2GHz. OVH itself is cheap, but then you are locked in the only provider around the budget.

    Just my 0.02.
