Dacentec dedicated Opteron with 2x2TB and 4x750GB $25/mo in North Carolina

Dacentec dedicated Opteron with 2x2TB and 4x750GB $25/mo in North Carolina

Just noticed Dacentec brought back an Opteron 1385 dedicated server with 8GB RAM, 2x2TB and 4x750GB hard drives for $25/mo. If you install/configure the OS install yourself with their remote IPMI and set up the drives without RAID, you can get 7TB of storage. The server is shown on their page as time of this post:

https://billing.dacentec.com/hostbill/index.php?/cart/dedicated-servers/

Last time they had this promo, it sold-out in a day. Just FYI.

Not affiliated with them, but I do have one of these same Opteron's with 2x2TB for $20/mo. Generally happy with the service as a development and storage box. Connection is fast and reliable. CPU is ok, not fast, about half or one-quarter the performance of a common VPS often found on this site. I use mine for data storage, backups, and the 8GB RAM is perfect for my code development/testing/staging. Note, the CPU is not compatible with CentOS 7 and other newer operation systems. My CentOS 7 install died a miserable death when I tried, but CentOS 6 works just fine.

    Thanks guy, not usually bothered about stuff in the US, but I do like my storage. Picked one up, likely to be handy for a couple of projects.

    One usable IPv4. IPv6 /64 can be added.

    My service details page says /29 of IPv4 Addresses. No mention of IPv6 though.

  • WSSWSS Member

    From the /30, pull down, and /29 is available with justification.

    I won't be back until @bsdguy is released.

  • And with the /30, shouldnt it be 2 usable ips?

    No.

    4 total IPs.

    YOU
    broadcast
    

    Thanks for this. I bought one. I don't know what I'm going to do with it- but probably use it for incremental backups of my actual important shit instead of relying on dumb luck and the fact I keep recent tarballs everywhere.

    I have never used Plex. Is this CPU enough?

    imok said: I have never used Plex. Is this CPU enough?

    Short answer: Probably.

    Long answer: It entirely depends on the quality of the media you want stream, your client app(s) and the number of simultaneous users.

    Thanked by 1imok
  • Sure, would be enough for a light Plex server

    Just so you know, if you ask for the /29, you WILL be required to provide justification.

  • @painfreepc said: I am new to the dedicated server thing, Do I need to use Centos 5 or 6,

    On the order site it gives you the following:

    Ordered one. I see it's Supermicro servers, by IP KVM do they mean IPMI, permanent, like, IPMI module in the motherboard? Or they'll attach a temporary KVM?

    AMD Opteron 1385 is slightly old processor (2009) for a couple VPS it will be great, as it's only quad-core with clock speed 2.7GHz

    You will be able to install your own OS, more up to date like Centos 7 or ubuntu 16.04 LTS

    They manually plug in a IP KVM on request, and unplug it when you're done (or after a day of use). They only have a certain number available. I requested one by ticket late in the evening (after 10pm Eastern Time) and got remote KVM access within an hour, and was able to use until the morning. It lets you use an install ISO image from your computer (slow), or use one of their ISOs on the network (they provide instructions). I used CentOS 6 64-bit ISO provided on their network.

    @WebProject said: You will be able to install your own OS, more up to date like Centos 7 or ubuntu 16.04 LTS

    I tried to get CentOS 7 working on this Opteron CPU, but no luck. Failed immediately on boot of the install disc before install began. Dacentec Support told me these old Opterons do NOT work with CentOS 7. If you get CentOS 7 working, please let me know how!!

    CentOS 6 64-bit works.

    People mentioned Plex. I had trouble getting Plex working on CentOS 6, and read there's much better Plex support on CentOS 7. Not to get this thread off on a tangent, but only mentioning that Plex may require effort to get working (more than simply installing an RPM package).

  • jvnadrjvnadr Member

    hzr said: Just buy from nocix or wholesaleinternet

    Different servers. This special has free IPMI (not dedicated but whenever you need it) and 7TB total storage (2x2 TB and 4x750 GB), combined with a /29. Especially the IPMi is rather hard to find, combined with such a big space (kimsufi has just a single ip without option to order more and a single HDD for this price).

    • If a program actually fits in memory and has enough disk space, it is guaranteed to crash.
    • If such a program has not crashed yet, it is waiting for a critical moment before it crashes.

    Yes, different servers, but @painfreepc has been going around the various dedicated server threads and is seemingly looking for any kind of dedicated server.

    Going with a cheap kimsufi or wholesaleinternet server would probably be best for him, especially if he has no idea what hes doing yet.

    The issue with centos 7 on this servers it that they have nvidia NIC's, support for which was dropped in RHEL7. So, it installs, works, but you will need to install driver for NIC's to work, which you will have to do using painfully slow and unstable KVM.

    Also, non-ecc memory and incredibly old/slow 750Gb drives.

    Other than that great server, been using it for some time now, and had no issues.

    Definitely something is incompatible on installer boot. I could not get the CentOS 7 ISO boot disc to boot AT ALL. The installer exits into "emergency mode" during startup (after a long timeout). Tried several CentOS 7 ISOs, same result. How do you know it's a NIC problem? Installer doesn't get me to the point of setting up the NIC.

    I really want CentOS 7 on this box. Would love to know how.

    kmod-forcedeth from elrepo worked for me.

    Also, my server is Supermicro H8SMI with Opteron 1381

    Centos 7 installed fine for me, using KVM, the only issues is... it is hard to copy file to remote server when it has no network... How you are mounting your iso? Using KVM?

    I got an Opteron 1356. Maybe that's why. Tried their ISO, and CentOS 7 Minimal ISO remotely mounted from my desktop. Humm, just realized I never tried a more complete CentOS 7 ISO, maybe should have tried the huge CentOS-7-x86_64-Everything ISO.

    How did you copy over the KVM without network?

  • If mounting iso-s using KVM works for you, you can just create iso with the file and mount it.

    Also, if you go in to their control pannel, there is "provision" button, you can boot rescue cd from there, mount your fs and copy file. Or you can try centos installer from there, but IIRC it did not work for me.
