    OVH promotions are normally shit, except some 1EUR .com registrations.

    I am thinking of getting it, but before I do, can someone help me out. I currently have a Vultr VPS based in Sydney $20USD per month, 4GB ram 2vCore, 60GB SSD and 3TB traffic. I am thinking of getting either APAC 3 ($12AUD) 2 vCore(s) - 3.5 GHz - 4 GB RAM 60 GB SSD - 3 TB Traffic. Or APAC 4 ($24 AUD) 4 vCore(s) - 3.5 GHz - 8 GB RAM 80 GB SSD - 4 TB Traffic.

    What I wanna know is that I only run Plex on my Vultr VPS and I am happy with it, the only VPS that plays Plex smoothly, will the OVH VPS be able to handle Plex? most of my content is 720p in 2-8MBps range. And most of the time i am the only one watching. On some rare occasions there will be 2 simultaneous streams going, both transcoding, will the OVH VPS be able to handle transcoding and streaming?

    Edit: OVH lists their bandwidth as Up to 100 Mbps bandwidth. I'm pretty sure Vultr has a better connection?

    That's a really good deal (even for 1 year), especially if the prices are Canadian $$. No idea what I'd do with one though.

    OVH free vRack also went from 10Mbps to 100Mbps today.

    Decent pricing for the data allowance. Does anyone know what's in their blend for AU? I know it used to just be Telstra.

    That's how OVH VPS deals typically work. And yes it's still a good one. Use it for the year, and often there's either a similar deal during that time from OVH again (so you can get that one and switch over), or something that attracts you from other providers.

    The deal is also available via the French website https://www.ovh.com/fr/vps/#ssd-discover
    and probably all other ones as well.

    Is there looking glass or test IP for OVH's Singapore DC?

    Interesting to know how's their DC's connectivity to China?

    Add-on ipv4's costing $3 one time fee really?

    Do you need a VPS in Singapore or Germany? It's apples and oranges.

    I would keep the Vultr, OVH's own VPS line always seemed quite shitty (limited to 1k IOPS, hard port speed restriction, shitty CPU, etc etc)

    Seems like OVH's SYD and SG datacenters aren't doing too well lol.

    Problem being they focus on trying to get new clients and not trying to please current clients by fixing network issues. Example, 9~ hours ago their whole Singapore network had issues for over an hour, 50-70% loss on everything. They quit providing SLA for downtime a while back also.

    The main locations, being BHS and the France locations are fine and uptime there is excellent for my stuff, but one would hope they would eventually do something to fix their losses in APAC.

    *sigh...I keep hoping they put out their US VPSes/Cloud but nothing :(

  • Singapore DC responds very well from India.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I have a dedicated server in SYD and the uptime and network performance has been great inside of Australia. Funny how those DC's seem to heavily differ in quality.

    Is that mentioned on their website, or did they just silently drop it?

    195ms to Guangzhou, China. SG to HK NTT 35ms, then next hop is 185ms to NTT Japan and back to China. Can't conceive of worse possible routing SG to China!

    I just don't think they care about it, or Singapore (maybe Sydney) are exempt from their SLA.

    Yeah, their focus isn't China connectivity, they said before I think that they have no plans to work on China connectivity due to their prices and the costs of it.

    Yup, an ID and a proof of address (2 separate documents). You can redact all other information in the documents you'll submit if you want.
