    Holy f--k, holy f--king f--k, a 2.99 EUR dedi, a 20 EUR dedi with 2x 2TB 1TB HDD and 16 GB RAM (throws money at OVH, hysterically laughing)...

    However -- don't forget there'll be a 1.5 GBP (1.5 EUR? or more?...) price increase starting September: http://lowendtalk.com/discussion/11442/ovh-eu-ddos-mitigation
    if they haven't backtracked on those plans, that is.

    There was actually a typo on the Ireland page:
    http://www.ovh.ie/dedicated_servers/kimsufi.xml used to say "2x2TB"
    but at http://www.kimsufi.com/fr/index.xml "2x1To"
    and the forum post says yep, that's 1TB disks, not 2TB.

    Edit: ...and they just fixed the Ireland page too.

    It's still very nice offer... :)

    Availability has just changed from "24 hours" to "29/07/2013" on all servers. :/

  • Was already halfway through the ordering process until i realized that i don't need another cheap server for 4€/month. Anyway it's an incredible offer although i wouldn't know what to use it for.

  • rm_rm_ Member

    Ordered one of the 2.99 and one of the 19.99 servers.
    And the 29/07 date is correct, it's not because of out of stock or anything, Octave said from the start in the forum post that deliveries start only early next week.

    Yeah that pretty much summarizes my thoughts. Is there a profit margin on power and upstream in France?

    That's a killer offer. Wonder if it will be a regular one, or just some temporary promotion.

    Also, where is the new data center mentioned?

    @rds100 he says this is possible because of the new super-efficient Gravelines DC, in the forum post: http://forum.ovh.net/showpost.php?p=555962&postcount=1
    And yeah, on the order check-out form you see that it's "France Nord (Gravelines)" location.

  • @rds100 It's in Gravelines, Dunkirk. I've been watching the development of the DC for a while now. See

    @Xaki: Dunkirk. Excellent news for us in the UK!

    @rm_ Can someone run the bench testing script?

    All we need now is google giving away a free VPS with every gmail account and we're done :-)

    For backup, it is excellent :)

    I bet there are a whole load of people on here who will "never" sign up to OVH because of the ID requirements who are running about finding ID to scan right now...

    Great marketing at the right time when they upgrade their network. It's done the job, everyone is talking about them.

    If this is their regular pricing then I'm amazed. Even as an offer, it's fantastic pricing. Worth it for the HDD alone as far as I'm concerned.

    I think one of the members in LET has mentioned before that you don't need government issued photo ID, which means a student ID would do.

  • Can Indonesian purchase the server? Or it's only available for Ireland/US/Canada user?

  • @jarland said:

    If they don't you can always cancel the old one by not paying for it (with OVH it is actually OK since they have automatic cancellation) and order a new one. The only issue is you'll need to make and restore backups

    I ordered one for 3 months and the price is just a bit over the price from ovh.ie.
    OVH.ie
    2,99 Euro /month but 23% VAT
    OVH.de
    3,99 Euro /month but 19% VAT

    So it's not a huge difference :)

    Anyone from around the world can purchase; you either buy from your regional OVH website (they have like 5 or 7 of those), or if as in your case there isn't one, then from http://www.kimsufi.com/fr/index.xml (and yes, you will have to deal with the french registration and ordering page).

    Obviously not, we are talking about 2.99 servers here.

    All of OVH will have automatic DDoS protection starting from September, how much that will actually protect, and will there really be a price increase on the cheapest server from 2.99 to 4.49 because of it, remains to be seen.
