    Are these the EOL disks? Hence low price.

  • ShazanShazan Provider

    4 TB can't be so old... looks like a good deal to me.

    If anyone gets one be good to see disk life, if they are EOL I believe they are only replaced with EOL when/if they break.

    This is an amazing offer, emailed them asking if they rent subnets, as it seems to be possible to order a maximum of 3 IP's.

    Allo, who said 24TB?

    Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.

    For around 66 EUR (I'd add little more RAM though), definitely worth.
    I've emailed them asking if it's possible to add more than 3 IP's, and what sort of HDD's/CPU do they deploy on these.

    I only have eyes for the TBs, couldn't care less about the rest.

    Yeah, True. The ~70e setup fee is the only(?) drawback (and consumer CPU/nonECC i guess) compared. dont know anything about the network tho.

    My mistake

    Their reply btw:

    I believe the 4TB are WD/ Enterprise and the CPU are Intel E5506.

    Can I order a /27 subnet?
    I believe this is not possible for this NFOrce-Starter-Editions special.

    He said he would need to contact his supervisor should I want to order the subnet so I guess it may be possible.

    They were very fast getting back to me which is a plus... Maybe its just the similar timezone but still.

    NFOrce is great especially with their support. They've always been laid back and super nice whenever I've contacted them.

    @MikePT I can provide Nforce BW and subnets for any of these; assuming they allow to CC them to my existing infra instead of public internet (they do on any normal server or colo), but they likely will not discount the BW away from the price then either so it adds up.


    HW offered for the price is ok i guess, with the HDDs not bad at all. CPUs and RAM useless for ZFS however.

    But can I have a USB to boot from?

  • williewillie Member

    The ecc ram (if present), absence of setup fee, and hw raid controller (especially if it can do raid 6) make this an interesting alternative to the sx61. However there are bigger Hetzner servers (sx131 and sx291) that use xeon cpus, have more drives, and (sx291) have hw raid, at comparable cost per disk TB to the sx61.

    Thanked by 2Falzo Foul

    #lexit spread the word.

  • I've ordered one of these last night and it's provisioned a few hours ago. So, it's been provisioned in less than 12 hours.

    I've asked for RAID6, Jessie and custom partitions and all was setup.

    The server has these specs:

    1 x E5506 @ 2.13GHz
    4 x 4GB 1333MHz
    LSI 9260-8i (no BBU)
    6 x 4TB WD Red

    Hmhm I see. Lets see how it goes but sounds good for a backup server.

    If you use decent private trackers it's perfectly fine.

  • have you ever seen bots from scc, gft, rarbg (open), ipt or any other tracker using hetzner? even on private trackers its still a risk and when you are german don't even think about to use a hetzner box on a german tracker. the average user has also no encrypted harddrives...

    nforce is better when its comes to abuse handling or customers privacy, m247 is also good they even do "abuse slowdown" when you are big enough like openload or something like that.

    hetzner is for legal stuff the #1

    Yes.

    Using a german server as german for illegal things in germany is straight up dumb, regardless what ISP it is. This is fact.

    Using a german server for torrent as Chinese in some town in inner Mongolia.... well, yea, what will the german gov do? Call Beijing?

    Butters said: m247 is also good they even do "abuse slowdown" when you are big enough like openload or something like that.

    They do not, they just walk the fine line UK law implies for US DMCA.

    With M247 you also get UK laws in all locations, which means.... hosting in Spain is pointless overall.

    Butters said: the average user has also no encrypted harddrives...

    Not too relevant, they first have to prove it is your server, not like the average illegal will use real data for purchase....
